Meredith joyfully teaches yoga and practices massage therapy since 1992, and is delighted to offer Hatha yoga classes and workshops, as part of this studio’s new venture.
A very early interest in metaphysics through Edgar Cayce studies, and nutrition, lit a fire for natural wellness, and manual healing therapies as natural adjuncts to training horses.
Later, after traveling to the Hawaiian Islands to study Lomi Lomi massage, and associated esoteric healing techniques, a new career blossomed into what is now Meredith’s Dharma… helping others grow more comfortable in their skin.
She feels extremely blessed to have studied with renowned teachers of different therapeutic modalities, beginning with Dr. Donny Epstein, founder and developer of Network Chiropractic and Somatic Respiratory Integration. His quantum physics approach to healing turned on a switch that fed Meredith’s voracious appetite for more information on healing the spine and nervous system, and improving physical movement and overall wholistic health.
While devotedly following Aadil Pahlkivala, founder of Purna Yoga*, and, Tias Little, founder of Prajna Yoga*, for the past 20 years, a host of masterful yoga teachers and practitioners inspired Meredith on the yoga mat, including, Lillah Schwartz, Patricia Sullivan, Rodney Yee, David Swenson, Sara Powers, Donna Farhi and many others.
Primarily Certified in Purna Yoga*, emphasizing integral completeness of yoga, ancient philosophy applied to modern life, utilizing alignment based Iyengar style asana, plant-based nutrition, Savitri’s Heart Centered Meditation* techniques, and Lifestyle, Meredith has accumulated over 2500 hours of master teacher training.
Her ability to therapeutically assess, and teach people about their injuries, while skillfully and compassionately guiding on the mat, is sweet and profound. She is a teacher of teachers and beginners alike where all levels are welcome.
Preserving classical yoga lineage and mythology, including using Sanskrit terms, telling story, and practicing ancient chants, colors her lively classes.
Meredith maintains a private practice in Naples, her home since 1999.
Other passions include hiking, biking, paddling in Nature, flowers and organic gardening, travel, Art, continued learning, while spending time with family, and friends, her little dog Happy.
