Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Megan Whiteside has lived and traveled all over the world to pursue her passions as a professional athlete, a model, and as a yoga enthusiast. Megan has a background as a professional snowboarder, and the importance of yoga was always a major factor in her life to keep her fit, flexible and healthy. After competing for years around the globe in contests such as The X-Games and Dew Tours, serious injuries plagued her and forced her to re-evaluate her career as an extreme athlete.
After she retired from competitive snowboarding, yoga became a central part of her life, and eventually led her to become a certified instructor at Samadhi Center for Yoga and Meditation in Denver, CO in 2013. With an in-depth and first-hand knowledge of sports injuries, Megan has a style that focuses on the students' unique needs, and she has helped many other athletes improve their performance and overcome injuries through yoga. She loves working with people who are passionate about sports, but also understands the unique needs of athletes and non-athletes alike.
The presence of yoga in her life has helped allow her to pursue her other passion of travel, and she has been to many different places worldwide to practice yoga and deepen her knowledge and experience as both a teacher and a student.
Megan is currently located in New York City and practicing as a private instructor.
Megan Whiteside is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).
