Megan's teacher training was an excellent life & yogi experience! Taking this training has reinvigorated my passion for yoga.

I'm forever grateful to Megan for how much she has helped me grow as a yogi and person. Megan will always be a friend, instructor and mentor.

Megan's Yoga Teacher Training was beyond phenomenal. I think her strength lies in her willingness to be honest and authentic. Megan was always extremely planned out, and filled the sessions with meaningful content. She made herself accessible to us as students, and was great at giving feedback. Furthermore, we have all learned a yoga flow that we can expand upon, which I am not sure is a part of all teacher trainings. To have this in my back pocket as a flow I know in and out makes me feel more confident to go out into the yoga teaching world. It also helps me have a clear idea of how to plan for classes. I am extremely happy that I chose to do the Megan Rader Yoga Teacher Training, and will forever be changed because of it! -Karolina D.
Megan goes above and beyond in her yoga teacher training. This experience has been life changing and I am so honored I had the opportunity to learn under her. I have learned how to develop my own intelligent sequence, confidently speak to the breath, provide variations for poses, how to use props, how to cue, timing, music, history of yoga, and so much more. This TT was well thought out and executed perfectly. I highly recommend anyone to take Megan's yoga teacher training, you will LOVE every minute of it. -Sarah A.
Yoga teacher training has enhanced my life in so many ways. I've grown professionally because my words are concise and I remain calmer under pressure. I have also grown in my physical practice and have learned to be content with how my body responds each and every day.

Thank you Megan for transforming my yogi life. -Natalie J.
