500-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

I have been practicing yoga on and off for about 15 years. I have an avid personal practice and I have enjoyed many different types of yoga. My certifications include the 200 hour certification through YogaWorks, mini yogis ® yoga for kids Foundation Training and Jane Austin’s Mama Tree Prenatal Yoga, Level 1& 2. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Studies.For me, teaching is about sharing your love of yoga with others. Meeting students where they are ad watching them progress is amazing! I love teaching yoga to kids as well. They are full of such pure energy and joy – watching them try out each pose with such enthusiasm and so little ego makes me smile. Yoga has taught me to slow down, take one day at a time and to make time for myself.


 Megan Kommer

200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher
kommer2015july0285From her first class on the shore of a Hawaiian resort while whales breached in the background, Megan knew yoga would come to the forefront of her life at some point. She certified with AFAA in 2000 and intermittently taught group exercise and spin since then.  For 10+ years she sporadically practiced yoga, mainly Iyengar, until she embraced Vinyasa Flow in March, 2013.  Her aging body failed to respond to the intense cardio workouts she had previously enjoyed so she switched gears and started practicing 5-6 times a week, mainly under Hazel Finch.Through recent travels she’s had the opportunity to practice in New York City (Manhattan and Brooklyn), Chicago, Alexandria, VA, Puerto Rico, Pittsburgh, PA, Los Angeles, Costa Rica, Hawaii and Portland, OR.  She loves the aerial and SUP classes she’s taken. In the winter of 2015, Megan completed the first 200-hour Power Vinyasa training at Just Be Yoga and is excited to share her passion!

She fell in love with Yoga and became intrigued with the way Yoga improved her focus, concentration, and mentality as well as its heart healing powers.

Yoga created light within the darkness. On & off the mat, yoga was a life changing way of being. Tamalyn wanted to share her passion and love for Yoga so she made the decision to get her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yogaworks.

Gina Myer grew up in majestic Utah enjoying the outdoors- skiing, rock climbing, golfing, hiking, ice skating and playing soccer.  Later on she enjoyed pushing the limits of her endurance competing in sprint, olympic and half ironman distance triathlons, as well as many road and trail running events. She turned to yoga as a means of injury prevention as her body was beginning to feel the wear and tear of age and intense physical activities. Through yoga she found a deeper connection to her mind and body and it became an integral part of her life, helping to calm her overactive “Type A” mindset and bring a sense of balance.  Gina loves the intensity of challenging poses and balances equally to the stillness in seated breathing and meditation.

Rachel’s personal practice started thanks to an invitation from a friend to meet at a yoga class.  By the end of that class she knew that she had stumbled upon something that would change her life. What started as a purely physical practice has led her on a path of self-discovery, self-love and mind-body awareness. Rachel’s desire to learn more resulted in her getting a 200-hr yoga teaching certification in 2009 as well as her personal training certifications through National Academy of Sports Medicine and Aerobics & Fitness Association of America, Pilates certification through SCW Fitness, and TRX Suspension training certification. Through her classes, Rachel hopes to help others discover the many benefits of a yoga practice while focusing on the breath and body alignment.
