About the Instructor:
Meredith began her own yoga practice over 15 years ago – first to get a little exercise and later to try to find sanity and balance despite a stressful job as a consultant. She stuck with yoga thanks to a welcoming and vibrant yoga community. Early in her practice she was drawn to an alignment-based school of teaching, connecting to a clear and thoughtful way of articulating poses, an invitation to participate fully and creatively in everyday life, and the fact that laughter on the mat was not only tolerated, but encouraged. She has continued to grow and share her love of the practice ever since. When her first son was born in 2013, she started to take infant, then toddler classes, and her family has continued the journey together. Meredith carries a sense of playfulness into her classes for both children and grownups, and is excited to share with students of all ages the joys and challenges that yoga reveals both on and off the mat.
Meredith is grateful to all her teachers along her path, particularly alignment-based instructors Desiree Rumbaugh, Christina Sell and Ross Rayburn who have influenced and inspired her. She completed her first teacher training at Willow Street Yoga (Takoma, MD) in 2006, followed by Level 1 and 2 Teacher Training intensives with Amy Ippoliti and therapeutics with Amy, Ross, and Jenny Otto. In addition, Meredith has completed teacher trainings for infants and children through ChildLight Yoga, LilOmm, and Tranquil Space. Meredith is the co-author of The Seven Women Project, which she wrote with her mother Karen McCullough. Meredith continues to practice with and learn from her teachers, friends, and family. She just can’t get enough yoga play time!
