Megan Gance – Born in the birthplace of America, Megan hails from the east coast and brings an upbeat tempo to her classes. Her admiration for Southern California is genuine as she offers a refreshing take on community classes with a musical flow and an understanding of healthy alignment.
Megan began practicing yoga shortly after graduating from Penn State University and breaking into her advertising career in Philadelphia. She needed a new outlet and discovered the yoga community at the perfect time, using it as a way to harmonize with the craziness of her world. Pranayama was her first study into yoga and it taught the fundamental elements necessary to practice asana, which she is so fond of today.
Almost 7 years later, Megan completed her 200-hour Teacher Training at YogaWorks Santa Monica. She now lives in Playa Vista and aims to bring this outlet to others. She knows yoga has the potential to transform students and everything they encounter. Incorporating its philosophical roots as a way to practice yoga off the mat, she appreciates the journey even if the path is not always clearly marked.
Megan is a self-proclaimed travel enthusiast, word nerd and dark chocolate addict. You can usually find her bike riding with her husband around the beaches of Los Angeles or practicing her handstand.
