Flow Yoga Team
Our team that makes the studio such a fabulous place to practice yoga.
Megan (Griffith) Cartier
This year, Megan will celebrate her 13th anniversary as the owner of Flow Yoga. Seeing this amazing, thriving community that she has helped foster gives her an incredible sense of pride, excitement and happiness. The practice of yoga has been a huge passion that she always wants to share with everyone around her.
She is grateful for all of the incredibly talented teachers who share their bright light at the studio and for the wonderful 40+ support team who help to make the studio such a fabulous place to practice yoga. Additionally, she is infinitely appreciative of all the Flow students whose energy and presence make the studios very special places to cultivate increased happiness and good health.
Megan loves to practice and teach yoga as a means to help transform her own life and others – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Her studies have spanned the globe with talented and inspiring teachers, including the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Yoga); Rodney Yee (Iyengar Yoga); Bikram Choudhury (Bikram Yoga); and Doug Keller (Anusara Yoga). She has also completed teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, Kimberly Wilson, and Tim Miller.
She believes that yoga is one of the most powerful ways that a person can nurture the following characteristics in their being: a strong and supple body; an open and joyful heart; a peaceful and focused mind; and a deep level of restfulness paired with a heightened sense of vitality and well-being.
A life long learner, I hope to always be evolving personally and in my practice. I started practicing yoga at my gym in November 2012 and at the suggestion of another student in my gym class, took my first yoga class at Flow on February 14th 2013–a deep stretch class with Billy Koch that forever changed my life and got me hooked on yoga.
Yoga has changed the way I interact with myself and the world around me in the most amazing ways. On a daily basis, I aspire to bring a warmth and feeling of home to the studio, whether that’s through my interactions with our lovely teachers and wonderful energy exchange participants or with our inspiring students. I also strive to bring positive, fun, calming energy to the studios. Balance, patience, kindness, staying grounded and learning to act rather than react are huge influences on my management style. I love that my job requires me to live a life where I am practicing my core values on a regular basis.
Having journeyed from student to energy exchange participant to co-manager, I feel a deep connection and responsibility to our yoga community and a strong desire to give people the same positive experiences that have shaped my life. My journey has been full of growth, happiness, challenge, acceptance and love. Yoga has become a way for me to stay connected to myself when life gets crazy, and I continually learn so much about myself through my practice, whether it’s nailing my first arm balance or not being able to bend as deeply in forward fold as I could the day before. Yoga has given me courage to face my fears on and off the mat and to find confidence in myself.
Front Office Manager
Back Office Manager
I think back to the first time I came to practice at the studio. I remember walking up the stairs in Leesburg and just ‘knowing’ I was supposed to be there. The energy of the space was so profound that it just felt right be a part of it.
Now, I help out with the ‘behind the scenes’ action items. It’s really interesting to see how my time at Flow has transitioned. First, I was a student, then front desk support, then a participant in teacher training, then a teacher AND assistant manager…and now a back-end resource! I guess I am meant to be a part of Flow and Flow is a part of me.
