Meghan Sueltenfuss

Meghan attended Boston University and graduated with her B.S. in Health Sciences in 2003, and her M.S. in Physical Therapy in 2005.  She loves learning and continues to further her education in a variety of treatment approaches including Women’s Health, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Maitland approach, Mulligan mobilization, Vedic Thai Yoga Massage, Cupping Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Functional Exercises, and Biomechanics.  Meghan is also a Stott Pilates® Trained Instructor.  She is active as the Anatomy Instructor for the Twist Yoga 200 hour Teacher Training, striving to encourage body awareness and safety within yoga asanas.

As a physical therapist, she began to see numerous injuries sustained in “yoga.”  In her search to learn more, Meghan began attending yoga classes.  She learned that “yoga” was much more than an exercise program.  Yoga gives us tools for healing.  She is fascinated with the overlap of mind-body science and Yoga.  Yoga teaches us that we are all connected.  In order to help others, we must be whole within ourselves.  In Yoga, Meghan learned that letting go is just as important as being active.  Whether we practice with a focus on the physical, emotional, or spiritual  body, Yoga helps us heal and find our true path.

 

More Information

What’s your favorite yoga pose at the moment?

Savasana after a well balanced practice.

 

Describe a moment during a yoga practice that rocked your world.

Physically: the first headstand. I had never achieved an inversion, and with assist from a great teacher was able to change my outlook on this challenge. 

Mentally/ Emotionally/ Spiritually: the first time I felt completely aware and at peace, after listening to the first half of a yoga sutra lecture.  I was driving at the break and felt totally calm, empty of stress and worries.  Now I can glimpse that contentment in other areas of my life.

 

What’s your favorite place?

Favorite places tend to be associated with happy memories, gratitude, and love.  A backpacking trip to the mountains with my family.

 

What is your favorite color? Why?

I don’t have one.  I tend toward earth tones.  How do you choose a shade from Autumn leaves, Northern Lights, Sunsets, Moonlight . . . ?

 

Whom do you admire?

I meet people every day to admire: raising children unexpectedly alone, struggling to do their best despite chronic illness, supporting aging parents and raising grandchildren, giving despite not “having,” living their true path.  I love people who have a quiet security within themselves, that make you feel welcomed and view without judgement.  I love people who give generously and unselfishly.  I love people who keep the sparkle and awe of a child through their lives.

 

What traits in others are you attracted to?

Authenticity, Compassion, Honesty, Altruism, Integrity, Loyalty, Humor

 

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?

People do kind things all the time.  The kindest does not have to be the “biggest.”  A hug when you need it, a reflective note, taking the time to say Thank you or I Love You, respecting your lifestyle and choices, an offer to help, giving without expectation, vacuuming without being asked . . .

 

Favorite book:

Whatever I am reading that: transports me to a new world,opens a new door, allows for self-reflection, teaches me something for work or yoga or life, puts me in somebody else’s shoes, anything I can read with my son for extra cuddle time or giggles or nurturing natural inquisitiveness.

 

Besides yoga, loves….

my family (unconditionally most of the time), my dogs (despite the hair and drool, especially of the St. Bernard), (even) my cats, reading (almost anything), learning (almost anything), hiking (except for mosquitoes and bee stings), and much more (cool river on hot day, first snowfall. . .)

 

Favorite thing about Twist Yoga?

I found a community that I didn’t realize i was missing 🙂
