About Surf and Soul: Surf and Soul was created in 2015 with the intent to connect the serenity of the sea with the Santosha (satisfaction) found when practicing yoga. Our aim is to bring peace and healing to the world by sharing our love of yoga with others. We believe that no two individuals are the same- therefore comparison and judgement (most of all from the self) do not have a place on our mats. In our practice there is only compassion, observation, and acceptance. Yoga is a way of life and a tool to help us understand ourselves more deeply. The goal is to spread the love of yoga in a safe, compassionate and inspiring way, while honoring the sea as our muse.
About Meg: Meghan Hanebutt is a Delaware-born wanderer, adventure-seeker, and soulful lover of travel, deep conversation, delicious red wine, foreign foods, and new experiences. She occasionally dabbles in blogging, poetry, and photography, which you can find here. She grew up spending her summers in Fenwick Island. She moved to San Diego in 2009 where she began practicing yoga on a cliff overlooking the sea. Her teacher’s pet potbelly pig, Clubber wandered in and out of the yogis’ downward dogs as they overlooked the Pacific Ocean. She was hooked. Since then, Meg has practiced yoga in North and Central America, Southeast Asia, in an airport in the Middle East, at 30,000 feet above sea level, online, beside rivers and lakes, and on top of volcanoes. Most recently, she has been practicing Ashtanga yoga in Palm Desert, California. Ashtanga is a yogic lineage steeped in tradition which greatly influences her classes today.
Meg began teaching yoga in 2014 in Guatemala and completed her 200-hour certification in 2015 in Bali with Santosha Yoga, a school descending from the Krishnamacharya lineage. The program’s comprehensive emphasis on meditation and pranayama as well as physical asana guide Meghan’s yoga classes. With Meg as your teacher, you can expect to experience a safe, compassionate, well-rounded, and meaningful practice based on the foundational principles of yoga, drawn from Ashtanga, Hatha, Restorative, and Vinyasa styles.
