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

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.

Lisha Megginson instructs the following:
  • Open Yin ($12)
  • 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.

  • Yoga Nidra
  • $79 | Members get 20% discount
    Yoga Nidra is a form of self-inquiry from the teachings of yoga said to induce deep relaxation throughout the body and mind, eliminate stress, overcome insomnia, solve personal and interpersonal problems, resolve trauma, neutralize and overcome anxiety, fear, anger and depression, as well as enter deep meditation in order to unravel the mystery of life. A regular Yoga Nidra practice will teach us how to stay connected to a state of well being, so that no matter what comes up in your life, you know how to connect with the part of yourself that is always at peace and at ease.

    Starting this practice with 10-15 minutes of movement in order to bring your consciousness into the body, Yoga Nidra is traditionally practiced in a supported supine position. Through guided meditation you will observe and welcome various aspects of your waking existence, starting with the most dense form, the physical body, and then moving on through more subtle layers, such as breath, feelings, emotions, beliefs, and joy. Throughout the process you will discover and connect to the aspect of yourself that is always peaceful and at ease.

    There will be space for integration and sharing as a group at the end of each practice.
