About Megan

Megan DeRosa, MA, C-IAYT, RYT500, E-RYT200

As a yoga therapist, I share movement, mindfulness, and lifestyle practices that facilitate healing and improved wellbeing. My intention is to help people move, feel, and live well.

With a knack for sharing both ancient wisdom and research-backed tools in an approachable way, I empower students to experience more ease, joy, and connection in everyday life. 

My work is supported by over 1000 hours of yoga training, more than a decade of teaching, a master’s degree in holistic health and healing, and certifications in Reiki and life coaching. Twenty-five years of yoga practice and a solid grounding in science also guide my methods.

I studied biotech in college, was a NASA scholar, worked in science journalism, and am a published author of a science-education book. Because of this influence, I’ve naturally explored yoga and holistic health through a scientific lens.

And, I’ve explored yoga through a personal lens. Yoga’s most powerful, meaningful benefits emerge through experience. A subtle alchemy transpires when we integrate yoga’s practices. We let go of old habits that no longer serve us. Tune-in to our inner landscapes. Awaken our own deep resources. Become more engaged and present in our daily lives. Heal and thrive.

Many people first learn about yoga through its physical practices, but a common misconception is that it’s all about stretching or movement. In fact, yoga therapy can help people who can’t move at all, as well as active individuals.

The yogic model of health is unique because it addresses every aspect of life rather than considering each body part or system separately.

Yoga therapy is a safe way of working with the natural capacity of your body and mind to optimize wellbeing.

A general public yoga class can certainly ease everyday aches, pains, and mood complaints. But a yoga therapy session goes much further because it is tailored to the individual.

Yoga therapists have in-depth training to help them assess and keep their clients safe. They work with you to address your specific goals while considering any limitations you might be experiencing.

The practices your yoga therapist recommends could include…
