MEGAN DELARUA

Megan started her yoga journey when a friend invited her to a yin yoga class in Spring of 2014. She enjoyed the physical benefits yoga had to offer and continued to take classes to add to her fitness routine. It did not take long for her to realize that yoga was going beyond the physical body; it was creating a body, mind, and soul connection. She was excited to share with others and often times invited her friends to take classes with her. She practiced yoga on and off for five years; slowly deepening her practice.  During the months of lockdown in 2020, she challenged herself to practice yoga every single day. The challenge soon became a lifestyle, and made it her goal to become a yoga teacher. She began her Yoga Teacher Training in summer of 2021 at The Lotus Pond. She graduated in December 2021 with 200 hours of YTT specializing in Hatha Yoga. In her classes she focuses on alignment, traditional poses, and breath with movement. She is excited to expand her knowledge in hopes that yoga will transform the lives of others, like it did with hers.

PEGGY FARRELL

Peggy Farrell experiences yoga as an invaluable path to maintaining physical, mental and spiritual health. While the benefits of asanas, or physical practice, are many, yoga’s profound benefits to the mind and spirit are equally important to her. She earned her academic degrees (B.A. and M.A.) from Michigan State University, and worked for many years as a medical journalist, gaining a deep knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Her career then focused on education, and she has taught in Hillsborough County Public Schools for 20 years. Her interest in yoga began with improving her cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health, but soon bloomed into a lifestyle that included mental and spiritual practice as well. Peggy completed her 200-hour training in Hatha Yoga at the Yoga Loft in Tampa, Fla. and her 300-hour certification from the Heartwood Yoga Institute in Bradenton, Fla., with a focus on yoga therapy.

ERIN BLANTON

Erin discovered yoga in the early 2000s at her local gym, and was fascinated by the asanas, energy flows, and the deep relaxation found through meditation. She practiced through college, feeling that the meditative space and body awareness were helping to manage stress and balance her world, though not quite understanding how. After teaching various group classes for several years, she felt compelled to bring a deeper level of wisdom into her instruction. By the end of her 200-hour RYT training at Karma Yoga, her practice felt infinitely expanded; she looks forward to spending the rest of her life exploring and sharing that yoga which occurs solely on the inside. Erin looks forward to integrating modern science and ancient wisdom in her practice as well as her instruction. As a scientist, she hopes to bring some skeptics over the fence and into the magic. After all, even the famed astronomer Carl Sagan said “We are made of starstuff.” She can't wait to bring the deep joy of yoga to others; in a society that expects constant productivity and discourages rest, there is nothing quite so rebellious as allowing space for restoration, relaxation, and healing. She ardently hopes to bring the idea that self love is not selfish to every class, and wants her participants to say “I deserve this!” with enthusiasm and ZERO qualifiers. Please join her - the rebellion awaits, and it's going to be a blast!

ANDREA CHEEKS

I first discovered yoga in college as just a way of exercising. However, it quickly became much more than that to me and I fell in love with the practice. A few years later I was signing up for a 200hr YTT program and completed my training at “Half Moon Yoga” in Medina, Ohio in 2015. Yoga has been such a positive influence in my life and I love to share that with others. My classes are accessible with opportunities to modify or intensify depending on your need that day. Just come as you are and do what you can!
