Fall 2019 Instructors 

Karen Shelley began practicing yoga in 2005 as a way to integrate a healthy balance of movement and stillness into her life. Today, she delivers this balance to her students through studio classes, global yoga retreats, and private lessons. Her initial training as a yoga teacher was at Kula Yoga Project in New York City. In addition to yoga as a moving meditation, Karen is passionate about the benefits of more therapeutic practices and is certified by San Francisco's Judith Hanson Lasater to teach Relax and Renew® Restorative Yoga.

After stopping collegiate swimming, Megan Meyer was looking for a new form of exercise that would be helpful for both her mental and physical health. She took her first class in 2007 and was sold. Her practice continued to deepen throughout graduate school, and she (finally!) completed her yoga teacher training with Carolina Yoga Company in 2019. Megan currently works in science communication at a nutrition and food science non-profit and tries to weave in evidence-based wellness into her classes. Visit Megan’s website to learn more.  


A Physical Therapist for over 20 years and a yoga teacher for 12 years, Laura Terry teaches with a liberal sprinkling of (easily understandable) anatomical explanations of the benefits of yoga as a movement practice. Her classes offer modifications and adaptations to allow the practice to suit your body and energy level. She is passionate about using yoga to heal the body and to counteract the busyness of life, one breath at a time.
