Meg Townsend loves breathing in life to its fullest potential by traveling the world, exploring her creative gifts through singing and writing, going on photography adventures, dancing in thunderstorms, and teaching yoga. She first awakened to the power of travel and began her lifelong journey of falling in love with the world when venturing to Spain, France, and Ireland in high school. In the winter of 2014 after spending much time reflecting on how she wanted to deepen her teaching offerings, she began curating and guiding international yoga retreats. It's the aspect of her work she finds most rewarding.....seeing travelers transformed through their bold explorations of inner and outer worlds. Highlights from her travels include:
Meg’s yoga journey began at age 16 when she convinced her PhysEd teacher that class time would be better spent doing yoga in the locker room rather than attempting to sharpen her skills at basketball. For the next ten years she explored different styles of yoga and became enamored with the practice. Meg was invited to take part in her first yoga teacher training in 2008 and in 2010, met the teacher that introduced her to her bright, inner fire: Yogarupa Rod Stryker. She is forever grateful that these teachings altered the course of her life and is committed to serving the Sri Vidya Tantra lineage of the Himalayas through her practice and teaching. She has over 800 hrs of training in Hatha Yoga, Reiki, and Ayurveda.
Paul Galloro is a miracle worker. A miracle is defined as a shift in perception from fear to love, and he has made this shift in his life many times. One of the biggest shifts in his life happened after closing his yoga studio, selling his car, and packing up his belongings, and embarking on a three-month tour around the world to visit Italy, Thailand, and Australia. “It was like my own personal Divine Comedy, but in typical Paul fashion, I didn’t follow the format” he says about his experience. “I straight away arrived in heaven, tripped over myself and plummeted into the pits of hell where every fear of mine was used to beat me to a bloody pulp, and then somehow I dragged myself into limbo where I lay battered and completely bare.” At that point, Paul had to make a choice – to fold, or to choose Love.
The difference between a tourist and a traveller, according to Paul, is one comes to see and the other comes to Love. Here’s a few highlights of his time loving around the world:
Paul’s approach to lifestyle and wellness goes beyond the physical and is grounded in Spirit and Love. Being a lover of movement, he has trained in everything from cardio conditioning and functional strength to Pilates, hatha/vinyasa, Kundalini, and therapeutic yoga. The essence of his teaching is the true meaning of Namaste, which is an experience of our oneness. He teaches from a place of Love – love for (your)self and love for others – and every experience will help you connect to the truth of who you are. Spending time with Paul feels like being wrapped in a warm hug and will leave you sparkling long after your time together is done.
