Beginning Kundalini

Thursdays 6pm

Meg is a 200 hour KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, sound healer, meditation teacher & spiritual mentor who is passionate about supporting others through transformation & transitions.  Meg's life changed when she answered the intuitive nudge to go into her first Kundalini class 7 years ago.  Meg has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, but it wasn't until her discovery of Kundalini that she had finally felt like she found home.  This led her down a path of overhauling her life - moving from a corporate career to starting her own coaching business.  From there, Meg once again answered another intuitive, life-changing nudge, & learned how to play singing bowls.  In that moment, it was as if everything changed from color to techni-color.  Every fiber of her being knew she was a sound healer & a deep connection to the bowls was instantly formed.  Meg has been leading classes, workshops & retreats throughout the world to groups of men & women for the past several years.  For Meg, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student go through their own transformational experience.  Her mission is to elevate the vibration of the planet through self-awareness, sound healing, meditation & Kundalni Yoga.
