Ruth Meagher

Phone: 862-208-9465 Anniversary: September 15, 2001

Ruth has been working in Education for over 20 years. She began her career with a Montessori Diploma and then pursued a degree in Art and Education at the Roehampton Institute of London. Before the birth of her first child, Ruth travelled extensively throughout Asia and Africa with her husband, working in schools in Nepal and Zimbabwe. Travel exposed her not just to diverse cultures, religions, yogic and meditative practices, but also opened her to the endless possibilities of the human spirit.

Ruth moved to the US in 2006. Using her educational background she taught in high school and elementary schools in Brooklyn, providing individual support to children who were struggling to reach their full potential. At this time she began her yoga practice and participated in a 200-hour Vinyasa training. She went on to complete her 300- hour teacher training at Yoga Montclair in January 2014.

She is grateful to have had the opportunity to be trained and Certified in Grounded Kids Yoga with Cheryl Crawford and Amy Haysman. She began teaching kids yoga classes at Yoga Montclair in 2013, and has expanded the program to include Yoga Summer Camp and Family Yoga. She combines her passions of teaching and yoga to create a safe and secure place where children can empower themselves with their actions, become more confident and connected, and elevate their sense of who they are in this world.
