Megan Leigh- RN, ERYT, Director
Megan is the creator of Lalita Yoga. She travelled with Ana Forrest as her lead assistant in the States, UK and Europe. Megan created Lalita Yoga by integrating yoga with her training in energeics with Rosalyn Bruyere, and Anodea Judith. She opened Chichester Yoga so that she could share her work and bring world class teaching to upstate New York. In her private sessions she combines Lalita Yoga with energetic healing, and Somatic Experiencing. Megan also teaches in NYC, Brooklyn and Rwanda.

She began her yoga journey as a student at Bard College in 1998, and through her practice is gradually becoming more able to make sense of life on this planet and the intricacies of being human. She finds that the practice of yoga teaches her to stay balanced, open, and joyous, as she strives to act with love in every situation. These situations usually involve cookie dough, handstands, and her three rapidly growing children. Her classes are informative, exploratory, and fun, and designed to leave students feeling nourished, balanced, rejuvenated, and empowered. Her teaching style is light-hearted and playful, and incorporates both intelligent vinyasa flow and held postures with detailed breath and alignment instruction to help students develop stronger connection within themselves through movement and concentration. Selena has been teaching for three years and is trained through the advanced level, 500 hours.
