SPRING BIG OM YOGA RETREAT LEADERS
We are super excited to have an amazing line-up of talented instructors and teachers to lead the Spring Big Om Yoga Retreat. Read below to learn more about the wonderful humans who will be leading each experience.
Megan Amelia Burnett, 200 E-RYT, YACEP
A devoted dancer and athlete her whole life, Megan has a passion for movement and sharing the joy and the balance that dancing and yoga both guide us to. In 2006, after dabbling in a few 'gym yoga' classes, she took her first studio class with an instructor who actually touched her and helped align her properly into a pose. She was hooked and immediately started to see a transformation in her dance training and her life. Seeking to also empower others with the tools to find balance within themselves, she started her yoga teaching journey in 2011 and has since guided classes and workshops in cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Megan's teaching approach creates a gooey, endorphin-releasing practice environment that her students refer to as 'Yummy Yoga'! She is passionate about teaching healthy alignment and yoga 'from the ground up', which draws both beginners and experienced practitioners to classes that are both playful and soulful. When not in the studio, she's with her son, romping outside, playing her ukulele or cooking/ dancing in the kitchen.
Hailey Boswell, Manager of Be Love Yoga Studios
Hailey first started doing yoga in college for the physical benefits it offered, but it didn’t take long before she felt the change yoga was making in her heart and mind as well as the body. Yoga helped her deal with the stress of working her way through college in a positive way, and continues to do so. She discovered a new sense of love for herself and others, which she had never felt before. Yoga invites her true authentic self to shine through, and allows her to feel more confident in everything she does. Hailey received her 200-hour teacher certification from Everyone Yoga School in May 2016. She teaches a vinyasa flow style class and enjoys teaching all types of classes ranging from soft, medium, to powerful.
