Megan Rader

I was born and raised in Chicago, where I began practicing yoga in high school. A friend took me to a beginner's class, and I was hooked right away. I completed my first 200-hour teacher training through CorePower Yoga in Chicago before moving to Seattle. I had no intention of teaching yoga before I entered my first teacher training, but I learned so much about myself and my practice during those months. I realized how much I wanted to share all of what I learned and continue to learn with other people. I deepened my understanding of yoga with two more teacher trainings in Seattle before moving to Grand Rapids. My classes are accessible and challenging, with a focus on safe alignment, strong breath, and pushing limits. I created Kula Yoga, because I wanted to bring a warm, welcoming, beautiful space and experience to my community in Grand Rapids. Kula is the spot where you can show up on your mat, just as you are, move through your practice, and spend time with your neighbors.

I am honored to facilitate the teacher training experience for yogis in and around Grand Rapids. After eight years in education working with elementary and middle school students, I've realized that teaching is truly my calling. I love to present the material covered in teacher training in fun ways that help solidify the information to those learning it, as well as make the information applicable to their daily lives. My teacher training groups stay small--I cap the number of participants to just ten--in order to provide each individual person the time and attention they need and deserve. By committing to small groups and holding our sessions in the intimate setting of the studio, teacher trainees forms close bonds that develop into true friendships. I'm humbled and blessed to be a witness to such journeys. Namaste.

Megan's Teacher Training was beyond phenomenal. I think her strength lies in her willingness to be honest and authentic. Megan was always extremely planned out, and filled the sessions with meaningful content. She made herself accessible to us as students, and was great at giving feedback. Furthermore, we have all learned a yoga flow that we can expand upon, which I am not sure is a part of all teacher trainings. To have this in my back pocket as a flow I know in and out makes me feel more confident to go out into the yoga teaching world. It also helps me have a clear idea of how to plan for classes. I am extremely happy that I chose to do the Megan Rader Yoga Teacher Training, and will forever be changed because of it! - Karolina DeLange
Megan goes above and beyond in her teacher training. This experience has been life changing and I am so honored I had the opportunity to learn under her. I have learned how to develop my own intelligent sequence, confidently speak to the breath, provide variations for poses, how to use props, how to cue, timing, music, history of yoga, and so much more. This TT was well thought out and executed perfectly. I highly recommend anyone to take Megan's TT, you will LOVE every minute of it. - Sarah Gow
Teacher training has enhanced my life in so many ways. I've grown professionally because my words are concise and I remain calmer under pressure. I have also grown in my physical practice and have learned to be content with how my body responds each and every day. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and am so grateful for the relationships that I have formed. I look forward to the future, but also don't want it to come to an end! Thank you Megan for transforming my yogi life :) - Natalie Jensen
