Megha was introduced to yoga in her freshman year of high school. Her inspiration comes from her grandfather who practiced yoga daily as a child in India and continued to practice very late into his life. From the beginning, she was hooked to yoga’s ability to strengthen her body, mind and spirit. Teaching yoga was a welcome respite during her Undergraduate and Law School careers at University of California, Davis. Megha loves to fuse her training in traditional Hatha Yoga with elements of Vinyasa, Kundalini, Restorative and Pranayama techniques. Her philosophy is that the consistent practice of yoga can bring us to peace through self-realization. Megha’s teaching style is patient, meditative and transformative - encouraging students to experience the body and mind as one - both on and off the mat. She works to help her students leave class feeling centered, inspired and energized.
She has over 9 years of teaching experience. Megha was initially trained in YogaFit for the first time in 2008 and received her Advanced Teacher Training Certificate (ATTC) from Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute in India in 2012. She has 500 hours of overall training in yogic practice, yogic theory, pranayama and total wellness. She has taught at UC Davis Campus Recreation, UC Davis Medical Center as well as several private studios in Davis and the Peninsula area. Megha loves to volunteer her skills as a yoga instructor for the physically disabled, veterans as well as cross-training for athletes in football, rugby and soccer.
Off the mat, Megha enjoys hiking in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, traveling and spending time with her husband and family.
