About Meghan Gunther, LMT
Meghan Gunther, LMT offers Massage Therapy at InnerStrengths Jiu-Jitsu. She is a 2016 graduate of Newport Massage School - Seaside Academy of Ayuveda and Massage. Meghan was a student and an intern under Robin. She specializes in Swedish Relaxation Massage, Ayuvedic Bodywork and Myofacial Release. She has taken additional courses in Structural Energetic Therapy and has her Reiki Level 1 through Candace Rushton. She is a certified Ayuvedic Health Counselor and teaches yoga classes at InnerStrengths Jiu-Jitsu.
Meghan has been a student of yoga for 7 years. Intrigued and inspired by the classic text, Paramahansa Yoganada’s Autobiography of a Yogi, Meghan sought out a teacher of the Kriya Lineage. Through a series of synchronistic circumstances, she met Viriginia (Ginny) Williamson, who is a Kriya Yogi and Teacher in Port Charlotte, FL. Meghan is deeply grateful for her two year apprenticeship with Ginny and was certified by her to teach the ancient art, science and philosophy of yoga having been awarded Lithe and Easy Yoga’s Hatha Yoga I & II and Raja Yoga I certifications.
Meghan reflects on this start: “My first real yoga class was with Ginny, I took a seat on my mat and closed my eyes as she guided the class to go within and focus on our breath. Her instructions were so on point that my eyes remained closed through most of the class. My full attention was directed inward and my awareness heightened as my mind was instructed to follow the breath, noticing how it moved through my body, allowing it to guide me into and out of each asana. When, in that first class, Ginny taught me how to breathe; she gave me the greatest tool to use to meet mySelf and I knew that my study and practice of yoga would always be a central part of my life. I am forever grateful for Ginny, for her guidance, encouragement and friendship.”
In keeping with her classical training, Meghan tailors her classes to the needs and abilities of the students present, encouraging everyone to discover and enjoy developing their own yoga practice. She emphasizes developing a body-mind-spirit connected awareness, using the breath as the vehicle to guide this awareness. Having experienced the benefits of bringing balance back into her life through her daily Yoga practice, it is her joy to be able to share her love and appreciation of Yoga. “My aim is to teach and empower others to cultivate their own personal [Yoga] practice, so that it may act as a foundation for their personal growth and development to meet the goals they set for themselves.”
Meghan continues to study the art, science and philosophy of Yoga as well as Yoga’s sister sciences of Jyotish (Science of Light) and Ayurveda (the Health Science of Life). Within the last year and a half she has become a NAMA Certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor, and a RI licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Swedish Relaxation, Ayurvedic Bodywork and Myofascial Release. Meghan also holds a BA from Simmons College, having majored in International Relations and graduated cum laude in 2007.
