Morgan believes that...
Yoga is not meant to help you touch your toes or achieve that 'Instagram worthy' arm balance.
Yoga will not make your body flexible unless your heart and soul are also ready to be stretched.
Yoga can heal you if you are kind in the practice journey. Yoga is for you if you are young, old, agile or stumbling. Yoga is for you if you are 'fit' or unfit, fat or thin, tall or short.
Yoga is for you if you have two legs or none; alongside a small-group of amputee students, Morgan has developed a program of yoga for amputees generously funded by FindingYourFeet.
Yoga has helped me to heal from anorexia and exercise addiction. Through gentle body awareness developed over many years I was able to get my mind and body back into healthy rhythm.
My name means 'dweller by the sea' and I enjoyed 14 years of living on the banks of the Tay River at its mouth on The North Sea in Newport-on-Tay Scotland, however much of my soul resides in Stockbridge Massachusetts where I currently reside. Upon my move across the Atlantic to Stockbridge, I took the opportunity to explore jobs and activities I otherwise would have never pursued. I sought opportunities to 'get outside' my comfort zone, challenge myself and take on roles and responsibilities not related to my education or professional training. In turn, I learned the techniques of organic horticulture, gained a certificate in Horticulture from the Berkshire Botanical Gardens, achieved a professional Ski Instructor (PSIA) Level-I qualification, coached girl's track and field and made lasting friendships with both the people and environs of Western Massachusetts. My time in Stockbridge continues to teach me to seek out discomfort because it can teach you so much about yourself, your responses, your relationships and who you want to be.
