- About Us
Megan Doughty was raised a figure skater and athlete in Maine. She didn't become a dancer until her late teens. Upon moving to New York, she began performing throughout the city and initially sought out the yoga practice as a supplement for injury prevention and strength building. However, through the mentorship of TaraMarie Perri and the Perri Institute, Megan began to explore beyond the physical benefits of yoga and she continues to dive into its endless complexities and holistic practices.
Megan is a certified and licensed yoga teacher and Mind Body Dancer® teacher through the Perri Institute for Mind and Body and her yoga classes encourage expression, creativity, and exploration while teaching safe and productive alignment foundations.
In addition to teaching yoga, Megan is a professional graphic and interior designer in New York City.
All yoga classes taught by TaraMarie Perri and Mind Body Dancer® teachers are rooted in a safe, alignment-based, breath-focused, mindful-flow style and are appropriate for anybody interested in cultivating sustainable pathways of the body and mind. Classes are thoughtful and detailed, educational and expressive, as they flowingly pair energetic imagery and anatomical themes. New practitioners create stable foundations, experienced yogis refine and re-connect, and those in between explore and experiment within the range of your body and mind's remarkable capacity.
Performers, please note:
