Our Teachers

Each Yoga Sol instructor brings her or his unique experience and perspective to class. We invite you to take a few classes and find the teachers that speak to you. We encourage students to explore our community and discover how yoga can provide different tools to help with life’s challenges. We’ve experienced yoga as a system that can support us in having a more balanced life and a more healthy body and mind. We are here to support you on your journey in health and happiness.

Megan Hall

Megan’s intention as a yoga teacher is to welcome you into a slow and mindful practice and to teach you to meet yourself where you are. Her intention as a yoga student is to continue meeting herself where she is, as she continues growing and refining in knowledge, understanding, and practice of yoga.
Megan began practicing in 2000 with an Ananda Hatha teacher. She began informally teaching that same relaxed style in 2003. Finding that her teaching style and personality were naturally yin in nature, Megan began learning and practicing Yin yoga. Megan has completed 72 hours of Yin yoga teacher training since 2011, and has been bringing Yin yoga to Columbia ever since. In 2014 Megan completed her first 200 hour yoga teacher training with Polly Sweitzer, right here at Yoga Sol. Then in 2017 she completed her second 200 hour teacher training with Liz Klug, also right here at Yoga Sol. In 2018 Megan attained her 200hr ERYT status with yoga alliance.
Join Megan for yin yoga or schedule a private or semiprivate class. Slow down and take time to meet yourSelf at Yoga Sol.

Lisa Harrison

Lisa turned to yoga for help in managing stress during a particularly challenging time. She was so inspired by the space her practice created in her own life for personal and spiritual transformation, that she earned her RYT 200hr certification in 2014 from 305 Yoga in Miami. Lisa’s goal as a teacher is to help others access the freedom and potential she continues to discover in her own practice. She views each class as an opportunity to hold space for each student and to walk alongside them as they embark on their own journey of observation, connection to self, and acceptance through the integration of breath and movement.

Sarah Sandkuhl

Sarah believes that yoga helps us access presence and strength, and in turn, recognize the subtle signals that our bodies and minds send to us, which usually go unheard. Slowing down and reconnecting with our breath is an important tool that allows us to take stock of how we are doing physically, mentally, and spiritually. This helps us to become our best selves, so we can be present in every situation. The process of moving with our breath leads to a calm that we carry off the mat.

Initially trained as a scientist, Sarah spent one year living in Bali and was introduced to the less physical side of yoga. That deeper practice led her to complete her 500 hr training at Radiantly Alive in Ubud. She brings with her a love Vinyasa and desire to share.

Anna Wilson

Relationship with the Natural World is the foundation of all of Anna's professional and personal work. One of her intentions is to provide an opportunity for remembering of one’s elemental, organic self. One of her goals in leading yoga and meditation is to allow your experience in the practices to be directly applicable to mindfully navigating (and savoring!) day to day difficulties, joys, and paradoxes. She believes through dedicated practice in mindfulness, we can illuminate our awareness to conditioning of the mind, heart, and body that limits both inward and outward harmony.
