Megan Bello is the studio owner and a full-time yoga teacher. She holds a B.S. in Divinity from the Nizhoni School for Global Consciousness. Before she became a full-time yoga teacher, she was a personal counselor and traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe giving workshops on spirituality and personal growth.
Megan took a keen interest in the human condition at an early age. At 14 she began practicing yoga asanas and pranayama and found that a regular practice led her to experience greater health, well-being, self-confidence and self-awareness. In 1996, she began teaching regularly at her college and discovered her life's work of sharing yoga's benefits with others.
Megan is deeply grateful to have found her current teachers Geeta S. Iyengar and Manouso Manos. She has also studied in depth with Anna Delury, Sri H.S. Arun, Karin O'Bannon, Faeq Biria, Gabriella Giubilaro, Carolyn Belko, Paul Cabanis and many other gifted Iyengar yoga instructors.
Megan has traveled to Pune, India two times where she has studied with B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta S. Iyengar and Prashant S. Iyengar.
Megan is E-RYT 500 certified through Yoga Alliance and has over 40,000 hrs of teaching experience. Megan's classes emphasize dynamic precision in bodily alignment. In her teaching, she strives to be clear and to inspire students to move beyond self-imposed limitations and discover greater awareness and joy in their lives.
Megan currently teaches yoga at Orange County Yoga Studio, Better Living Yoga, and Yoga Works Laguna Beach. She is part of the Teacher Training at OCYS and the Advanced Teacher Training through Better Living Yoga.
