About the Instructor
Megan began her yoga journey at the encouragement of a friend and fellow musician in 2016 at B-1 Yoga in Dubuque. A longtime opera singer with local and regional ties to the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra and Madison Opera, she noticed an almost immediate shift in her vocal performance and, with piqued curiosity, decided to explore this new dynamic and its correlation to her instrument.
As COVID-19 put the kibosh on much of her scheduled performances in 2020, it also created space for her to complete her Yoga Teacher Training. Megan has since authored multiple articles on the connection between yoga and music for Classical Singer magazine.
Teaching at B-1 Yoga, Megan can be found leading traditional vinyasa classes, as well as helping yogis settle into a deep and meditative candlelight yin practice. When not on her mat or on stage, she also is the features editor at the Telegraph Herald, where she covers all things arts and culture, as well as oversees Her magazine.
