Megan began an Ashtanga practice at the start of her career in higher education after completing her graduate work in creative writing in the U.S.What started as a search for an exercise to reduce stress and connect philosophy to practice, the yoga led her to her first teacher and, eventually, to her first trip to the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. Between here and there, she traded in the academic classroom and found space to combine her creative interests, need for introspection, and passion for teaching others. Time spent on the mat—the daily repetition with its inevitable ups and downs— anchors her spiritual practice through self-acceptance, dedication, discipline, and the tapas fire of a fully inhabited body.
Her teaching encourages a surrender to meet your self where you are for the day with the work of recognizing the old patterns of the mind and body. Within this balance of acceptance and exploration, the practice is revealed.
After many years of study and practice, she received level 2 authorization from her teacher, Sharath Jois, in 2012. She has assisted Sharath in the teaching room at KPJAYI and taught at Jois Shala in the U.S. before running her own Mysore program in Greenwich, Connecticut. She is grateful to her teachers Faith Scimecca, Dominic Corigliano, and the Jois family for their guidance and presence along the path.
To Jurre, the breath is magic. “The breath takes me to places in the body that feel like inner in outerspace”. His astanga classes are focused on moving with the breath, being the breath and using it to find space and peace. Creating space and peace while respecting the body’s anatomy, Jurre likes to give you a safe personal yoga practice.
From the start of his own yoga-path he has had the privilege to practice with several highly experienced yoga teachers, who inspired him to deepen his practice by engaging in a 500-hours teacher training at Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India. Here he started practicing with Ken ‘the Rolfer’ and learn as an assistant-teacher at YogaSala Istanbul in 2009. Ken, a Rolfing therapist and teacher gave him a thorough understanding of physiology and anatomy in yoga.
Exploring and experiencing the never ending path of yoga is the main focus point in Jurre’s life.
