“Have you ever been told that you cannot ever do something again?” 5 years ago after an arm full of hardware and a year of physical therapy ahead of her, Meredith was told that very same thing. She would never be able to surf, practice yoga, or in a nutshell… be herself anymore. Coming back to her yoga practice saved her life in many ways, as she now looks at her skateboarding accident as gift or a true awakening. Meredith’s reconnection with her practice, her body, and her thoughts was a crazy journey and, though not pretty at times, sometimes really taking a look in the mirror is the only way to get your true self back. Learning how to take things one step at a time while being content with where she is in the present moment is one of her greatest lessons in life. You may not be able to do things the same exact way, but once you achieve “the impossible” and figure out how to use your body and mind in a different way… presto! You are alive and you achieve anything!!!
Meredith’s vinyasa classes tend to be faster paced and physically challenging with an emphasis on power and intensity. She likes to push herself and her students to the limits of the mind and body but not at expense of the breath. Listening to your inner teacher is the most important of all. Expect some pretty good tunes, fun arm balances, inversions, and binds with modifications always.
Meredith wants her students to explore their minds, bodies, and spiritually. To watch the light turn on when they discover something new or have a breakthrough on a more internal level is the most inspirational part of teaching for her. She will forever be a student to yoga and will continue to share and give back to her sangha (community). If you want a sweaty, challenging, light hearted, celebratory class join Meredith on a journey to a higher self!!! Jai!!!
