Lisha Megginson

Describe yourself in three words: Happy, Kindhearted, Introspective
Why do you teach yoga? I believe yoga opens us up and paves the way for self discovery and our connectedness to all that is. Yoga has made me a much more open person in so many aspects of my life. I love sharing what yoga has to offer in body, mind and spirit.
Something surprising about you: I am obsessed with tiny houses
What inspires you? I am inspired by people who pursue their passions and let nothing stand in their way. I am also inspired by Mother Earth and all of the gifts that she has bestowed upon us.
What is the scariest thing on your bucket list? Traveling alone to Tibet to stay in a monastery
Trainings/Certifications:RYT 200, Thrive Yoga, I am currently pursuing my RYT 500 at Thrive yoga. I am certified in Reiki I and II, I am also a Certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a certified crystal healer.

Lisha brings a gentle, meditative quality and an air of calm healing energy to her classes, incorporating Reiki and crystals whenever possible. She believes that yoga is for every”body” and wants everyone to feel welcome and included.

Ally Austin

Describe yourself in three words: adventurous, student, lover
Why do you teach Yoga? To share with others the abundance yoga has given me. My mat is my HOME… I teach yoga because I have so much left to learn.
What inspires you? Humans! Nature! The BIG things… but especially the quiet moments.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? To live by myself.
Where did you get your training/certifications? 200 Hour (Thrive Yoga), Reiki I and II (Thrive Yoga), currently enrolled in 300 Hour at Thrive Yoga
 
At age 16, Ally found herself on a yoga mat in Frederick, Maryland alongside her stepmom who was pursuing her own yoga teaching career. She'll admit it: she giggled during her first om. Over a decade later she's taught on both the east and west coasts and practiced in several countries around the world. Yoga has profoundly impacted her life; she comes to her mat for fun, for guidance, and sometimes just for the quietness. In her classes you'll slow down so you can listen and connect with your body, with compassion, and with all that's around you. Connection is key; union is yoga.
Yin Yoga explores postures of stillness for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation. Sequences will target connective tissue: specifically ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine. When lengthening these tissues and releasing energetic knots, we increase our range of motion. Muscles account for about 40% of the resistance against the body's flexibility, while connective tissue accounts for about 50%. Students will receive one-on-one attention for modifications and prop positioning. Great as a therapeutic practice.
