Megan Grunewald became a RYT200 with Yoga Teacher Training with Laurel Hodory and Faculty in 2015. She came to yoga as a way to cultivate a deeper awareness of her own body. She has studied other movement arts since 2006 including hula hoop dance, poi, hip hop, jazz, and modern dance, and her experience with yoga encouraged her to pursue it as a way to incorporate healthy functioning and use of her body into her life as a movement artist. Megan is passionate about nurturing healthy bodies as well as a healthy planet. It was this passion that inspired her to complete a sustainable agriculture internship with The Green String Institute in 2012, an experience that strengthened both her spiritual and visceral relationship to the natural world. Megan’s desire to reduce her ecological footprint and find a path to personal health motivates her to eat a mostly seasonal, plant-based, whole foods diet. She worked with Luna Burger because of their dedication to creating relationships with sustainable Ohio farms, and she volunteers with Goodwill Columbus to plan and implement a garden-based life enrichment program for on-site residents. Megan practices mindfulness of the present moment, leading her to appreciate her own strengths and limitations. She incorporates her passions for growing and eating healthy foods into her life as a yoga teacher.
