Meg is a classically trained pianist and flautist and is currently learning the Sitar and Harmonium in hopes to incorporate Classical indian raga sounds or improvisation to enhance a class or meditation setting. She attributes her improv time with musical instruments as a key factor in the ability to encourage improvisational poses and movement when forming classes. The fine tuning and training in the Yoga medium she believes is that between the mind, body, spirit connection. Meg feels with any art form the key resides in becoming an exceptional listener. ->visit http://www.islamujeresyoga.com

He believes that his work as a teacher can create a space for others to empower, heal, and grow, just as his practice has done for him. He encourages his students to practice with self-compassion, creativity, intuition, and yes- discipline (tapas). Influences of Raja Yoga or King Yoga can also be found in his classes: a practice of working with and directing the thoughts and patterns of the mind.
Kevin plays the Native American flute and brings a flue or two to his classes. He loves to play during meditations and savasana. Flute playing is one of Kevin's pranayama (breath control) practices and is a source of joy in his life. Offering a well-balanced approach that is accessible to newcomers as well as experienced practitioners, Kevin brings passion to his teaching. He is grateful to be on the path he is on and looks forward to sharing that path with you.
