“Meditation and yoga is the anchor of my day”
Since stepping into her first yoga class in 1988 and her first meditation session in 2011, Meredith Fellowes has understood the benefits of mindfulness through yoga and meditation. That feeling of being alive, yet calm and filled with energy is what drove her to launch YogaMind in 2016. She believes firmly in the “practice what you preach” method and brings a unique and determined energy to her teaching.
With over 25 years of experience and training, owner Meredith Fellowes provides a combination of teaching and practice to make the yoga and meditation experience accessible and understandable to even her most beginner clients. Meredith does not 'practice' along with her classes, but 'teaches' from a deep knowledge base. She provides hands on instruction to help her students experience greater awareness and acceptance of their bodies, thoughts and emotions.
Meredith has well over a 1,000 hours of yoga training with various teachers across North America. She completed her first yoga teacher certification in 1992 and achieved her Anusara teacher certification in 2007. Some of her most recent trainings include:
- 2017 and ongoing: Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) Teacher in Training in the UCSD Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute (MBPTI)
- 2017: completed the MBPTI 6-day MBSR training program
