Meera Reid, SVA Owner, E-RYT 500
"Watch intensely, listen entirely, and you will learn constantly about loving fully" ~ Meera
Meera has been devoted to the path of yoga for over 17 years. Though initially drawn to the practice for physical fitness, yoga soon inspired profound self-inquiry, radical expansion, and a passionate engagement with life.
Meera’s deep commitment to community, and to inspiring transformation in those around her, led her to teaching. It is Meera’s sincere joy to share Sattva Yoga, as developed by Master Teacher Anand Mehrotra, whose wise teachings and loving presence taught her to trust her inner guide fully and live with graceful passion in all moments. It is Meera’s daily inspiration to share this practice, wisdom, and invitation to vibrant living with her students.
She is a E-RYT-500 and is certified to teach Sattva Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, YogaFit and Hot Yoga. She has completed advanced teacher training with Stefani Hoyt and Mandorla Yoga Institute; Master Teacher and divine inspiration, Ma Siddhi; and Sattva Yoga Founder and Master Teacher Anand Mehrotra in Rishikesh, India. Meera is a facilitator for THE BRAIN CLEANSE™ and is a certified Sattva Yoga Pre/Postnatal Teacher.
In each of her classes, Meera creates a compassionate and non competitive environment where all students are invited to celebrate all aspects of the unique human beings they are. Though the style of practice may vary – from high-energy Sattva journeys to soothing therapeutic flows to cleansing Kundalini sets – each experience with Meera is empowering, and invites a connection to one’s own divine inspiration and infinite capacity.

"I am a teacher.
My passion is teaching yoga.
As a yoga teacher, I hold space for students, inviting them to arrive completely, live fully and be wholeheartedly present.
I guide them to the understanding that there is so much more to yoga than the physical postures that tend to be the focus of classes here in the western part of the world.
The yoga sessions that I lead combine ancient yogic traditional elements with a conscious and mindful attention on proper alignment. Together we grow, evolve and transcend through the holistic practice of asana, pranayama, kriya, mudra, mantra, laya, sufi, ancient wisdom and meditation. Students are encouraged to develop a deep self-awareness and a sense of individual responsibility.
We explore the depth of all of these elements to create shifts within the body, mind and spirit.
It is my wish to passionately share my love of yoga and to inspire students to continue to commit to their practice and to come together as a sangha.
Always a student first, I am committed to deepening my personal practice with yearly travels throughout Canada, the USA and India, being immersed in the wisdom and grace of yogic life and studying with divine inspirations Master Teacher and Sattva Yoga founder Anand Mehrotra and Master Teacher Siddhi, founder of The Brain Cleanse."
