Megan DeRosa is a teacher, researcher, and writer who has spent two decades exploring healing, wellbeing, and mind-body medicine. As a wellness coach and yoga therapist, her approach is grounded in graduate studies in holistic health and healing, a solid foundation in science—she’s a former NASA scholar and science writer—and advanced training in yoga, life coaching, and energy medicine. Her work has been featured in many popular publications and platforms, including Yoga Journal, Insight Timer, Yoga Anytime, Thrive Global, Elephant Journal, The Chopra Center, Yoga Therapy Health, and Inner Peace Yoga Therapy.

With an MA in Holistic Health and Healing, Megan conducted literature- and experiential-based research into modalities that support and restore wellbeing and wholeness. Her thesis—Golden Threads: Shared Themes in Holistic Health and Healing Modalities (Prescott College 2012)—uncovered a pattern of five inner landmarks that are essential to healing: letting go, moving toward balance, accessing inner guidance, expanding awareness, and experiencing empowerment. She’s also a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT), a registered yoga teacher (RYT500/E-RYT200), and continuing education provider (YACEP) with Yoga Alliance with over 1000 hours of yoga training, 30 years of practice, and 15 years of teaching experience. In addition, Megan has completed advanced certifications in life coaching through the Hendricks Institute’s conscious-living model, as well as energetic-healing certifications in Reiki. And, she has a solid foundation in science: She holds a BS in Integrated Science and Technology, was a NASA scholar, and worked as a science editor and writer for over a decade. 

Megan has a deep personal and professional understanding of mind-body medicine, wellbeing, and healing, and a gift for distilling modern science and ancient wisdom into simple, approachable teachings.
