Meegan Haley

While she was born and raised in upstate NY, Meegan considers Colorado home. She has lived in CO for 22 years, the last 10 in the Gunnison Valley. Her yoga journey started in 2001 when she was introduced to the Bikram hot yoga series. Over the years, her practice expanded to include Power Yoga, Ashtanga, Restorative and Iyengar yoga. In 2009, she moved to Denver for a 9-week 200-hour teacher certification in the Bikram-style yoga series. When she returned home, she started teaching in Crested Butte and in Gunnison. She soon realized that her full-time teaching job in the schools and teaching yoga in the evening proved to be too much. Her yoga career was put on hold. In the summer of 2013, she taught the Bikram series once again at Yoga CB in Crested Butte. Over the course of the 2013/­2014 year, she yearned for a deeper understanding of Yoga and what it means to live as a Yogi. In May 2014, she embarked on a life-changing journey to Mysore, India where she lived in an Ashram for 5 weeks, training for a second 200-hour certification in Traditional Hatha Yoga. She is humbled and honored to bring Hatha Yoga to the Gunnison Valley. She looks forward to sharing the wisdom and practice bestowed upon her. To breathe, relax and have awareness of the body is the true experience of yoga.
