About Meg

Hello, I’m Meg.

 

Welcome here.

 

Outside of my day job, I study, practice and teach Jivamukti Yoga.

I love working at the intersection of somatic psychology, yoga and activism. When I say activism, I mean all its forms; social, political, animal, climate and spiritual. 

 

My first experience of Yoga, a decade ago, changed the course of my life. Jivamukti Yoga has not only helped me manage the stress of modern life, it provides me with a means of intricately exploring my body and mind; their tendencies, capacities and limits.

Growing up I didn’t have a faith or cultural identity. Jivamukti Yoga continues to give me opportunities for communion with my soul and the world soul. I am incredibly fortunate to be a part of both a local and global Jivamukti Yoga satsang; a diverse community of ethical vegans and spiritual seekers.

 

A huge element of being a Jivamukti Yoga practitioner is our yoga-off-the-mat. The Jivamukti Yoga method has provided me with a roadmap to approaching activism in my daily life. All of my offerings, including Trauma Sensitive Yoga, iRest Yoga Nidra and Climate Community, are different expressions of my yoga-off-the-mat. These are all offered with the intention of contributing in some way, to the happiness and freedom of all.

Acknowledgement of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the sacred land on which I work and live, the Wadawurrung People of the Kulin Nation. 

 

I wish to extend this acknowledgment and recognition of the vast countries and cultures throughout this continent. I humbly acknowledge the Traditional Custodians' spiritual connections to land, sea and community. 

 

I acknowledge that their sovereignty was never ceded and that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to be traumatised by the pervasive impacts of colonialism today.

 

I apologise for the privilege I have enjoyed at the expense of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. I recognise our collective need for truth telling and deep listening.

 

I pay my respects to their ancestors, elders both past and present, as well as the emerging and future generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

 

I promise to be an ally and to honour the Uluṟu Statement of the Heart. 

 

Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
