Not your average flow facilitator, Meredith is an asana evangelist. A self-proclaimed yoga geek, Meredith defines yoga as freedom through discipline. This philosophy guides her classes, which deliver intelligent and challenging sequences that focus the mind and nurture the soul.
A testament to the transformative powers yoga, Meredith’s own journey began on a whim. While taking an uncharacteristic break from her daily running routine, Meredith – a former NCAA distance runner and lifelong athlete – stowed her threadbare Mizuno racing flats in the nearest studio shoe cubby and embraced (by force of the positively-insistent wall placard) both the literal and figurative vulnerability of bare feet. What ensued were botched poses, ego bruises, and a severe case of emotional whiplash. It might not have been love at First Warrior, but it certainly was transformative.
A political professional for nearly ten years, she came to yoga with a decades’ old desire to help people, promote progress and impact change. In 2012, she relocated from Washington D.C. to Venice Beach to teach and study yoga full-time.
Meredith has a teaching style that is vigorous, yet playful. She blends the fire of flow with mindful alignment, balancing the physical demands of asana with the sanctity of the practice. Above all, she strives to keep each student intrigued by his or her own truth and potential.
A 500-RYT, Meredith completed her Advanced Teacher Certification with her mentor, Annie Carpenter. In addition to her training in the SmartFLOW™ Vinyasa method, Meredith continues to study Ashtanga and Iynegar traditions with master teacher Maty Ezraty. She is also trained in restorative yoga techniques and pre/postnatal modifications.
Off the mat, Meredith can be found binge-reading, joy-writing and beach-cruising Venice on her banana-colored bicycle. She loves recipe-free cooking and her husband Adam for putting up with it.
