Megan B.jpeg
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.

Melody Smith, manager at Trailside Yoga

Starting out as a dedicated student in 2015, she made her way to karma yogi and now teaches SloFlow once a week. In late 2018 she completed her 200 hour YTT in Rishikesh, India where she spent 6 weeks studying a holistic approach to Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda, and ashram based living. Melody is passionate about learning, sharing with others and connecting deeper with her self. She hopes to guide her students into greater understanding themselves by bringing awareness to the body, thought patterns, and energetic influences. “My biggest goal as a yoga teacher, and just as a human being in general, is to empower others to make changes for themselves. We have the healing we’ve been looking for. We just have to remember it’s within us.”

Krystle.jpeg
Krystle Clear Ann Aguilera

From as early as she could remember, movement always spoke to her and she chose to do it simply because it brought her joy. As she grew in her relationship with movement, the ability to bring mindfulness and connection of mind, body and Spirit into every physical expression not only brought her joy, but offered her a space to feel, heal, explore and dive deeper into her heart space and form connections with anyone she worked with or shared the experience of movement with.

She began shaping her movement training at the age of 7 in her hometown of Miami, FL and went on to receive her BA in Dance Performance from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since then, she has danced professionally for Modern Dance companies and has taught various Movement forms and technique classes to all ages from youth to adult in Oklahoma, Arizona, North Carolina, Illinois, Florida and debuted as a professional choreographer in Chicago.

While living in North Carolina, she received her Yoga Teacher Training at the Asheville Yoga Center. After receiving her Yoga Teacher Training, her entire life took on a whole new purpose, and quickly. She launched, what was then, “Krystle Collective” and shared in an authentic, real and spiritually awakened way that brought the value of true connection and union with others into the forefront of every one of her offerings.

While living in Chicago she received her Usui/ Tibetan Reiki Attunements, up to the level of Reiki Master Teacher. Through the energetic clearing, healing and profound awareness of intuition and Spirit that the Reiki Attunements brought into her life, Krystle was able to connect with herself, others, nature and the Spiritual plane in deeper, realer and more magical ways than ever before. Continuing to follow her heart and Spirit, she packed up her car and moved across the country to California. After traveling the West Coast for seven months, she continued on her wild journey which led her back to the sacred mountains of North Carolina, where she currently resides as her home base.

She was once defined by her roles as a “movement teacher” and “professional dancer”. Now, she has fully dedicated and devoted her time, energy and life to guiding herself and others to embrace, embody and live into their truest, most authentic and freest self and expression through offering Krystle Clear guidance and support in the areas of: Community Connection, Incension and Ascension Guidance, Support and Integration, Movement, Yoga, Meditation, Energy Healing, Intuitive Card Reading, and more than anything, being a friend along this journey of life, love and self-discovery, realization, mastery and awareness.

With infinite love,

 Krystle Clear

Alfred Meneses, RYT 200 

Alfie started practicing as a way to recover from a weight lifting regimen and to destress from working retail management. He soon realized that Yoga started giving him something much deeper; he found higher self-esteem, self-love, and empowerment he never found from just working out in a gym. After a year and a half of practicing, he received his RYT-200 from ViraVinyasa Yoga School in April 2018. Other training Alfie has received include 15 hours of Yin Yoga with Melissa Christensen and 17 hours of Pranayama with Mark Stephens. Alife teaches Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation in public classes as well on his Youtube channel, “Fully Inspired: Yoga by Alfie”. Beyond the physical aspects, Alfie believes compassion, vulnerability, transparency, and heartfelt playfulness are key aspects in attaining true strength and empowerment. The heart of Alfie’s teaching comes from the connection between his practice and life experiences; and he strives to inspire his students to connect their movement and breath on the mat to how they move and breathe through life off the mat.
