What makes Megan an Acro SuperHero?
I like to say that I am Tiny & Mighty. I love to share Acro as a way to unlock the incredible potential stored in everyone, with a strong belief that people can lift each other up - physically, emotionally, and energetically.
Megan's super powers as an Acro Teacher:
My favorite thing about teaching Acro is helping people discover that something which seems impossible can actually be possible. By fostering open communication with others, (safely) pushing our limits, and supporting each other, we can create Acro magic together!
What type/style of Acro does Megan teach?
When teaching, I focus on the fundamentals - connection, stability, and communication. I enjoy teaching beginners and spreading the joy of Acro to as many people as possible. I most often teach the L-basing style of AcroYoga and love to incorporate creativity and playfulness into my practice. With that in mind, Same-Size Acro is one of my favorite ways to teach and play.
Megan's current Acro offerings:
I host weekly jams in Davis, CA. I offer privates, and teach Acro workshops in Davis and Sacramento.
What to expect from Megan's classes:
Students can expect to learn new skills, refine their practice, and laugh a lot while feeling supported, inspired, and safe. Students can also expect glitter.
How does Megan incorporate social justice themes into their Acro offerings?
Learning how to be an effective spotter is one of the most empowering aspects of Acro, because it allows us to keep our friends safe and progress towards our goals. In the same way, we can find ways to support and "spot" each other in our daily lives. "I got you" is one of the best things to be able to say and hear, both in Acro and in life. When we see injustices occur, or notice people that need our help, we have the opportunity to lift each other up and offer support to those who need it most. I emphasize support, spotting, and open communication in my Acro spaces and partnerships. By looking out for ourselves and each other, we collectively build a sense of community, and can see each other as fully human and deserving of respect and love.
When I discovered Acro, I watched my dreams take flight. I am endlessly grateful for the many positive ways that this practice and community impact my life, and it's my passion to share this joy with others. I received my Teaching Certification from the Acro & Social Justice Teacher Training in 2018. The experiences from my Teacher Training have made a lasting impact on my life, and continue to inspire me in the paths of teaching, learning, and growing.
