Ember's Teachers  >  Neasa McHugh



class schedule
Neasa’s love for yoga began in her hometown of Dublin, Ireland when she took her first Bikram Yoga class in 2010. She was initially drawn to the practice for weight loss and fitness but even after her first class she realized that it had a lot more to offer than physical benefits. As she began to feel the transformation yoga had in her life she felt inspired to share the gift of yoga with others. Soon afterwards, she began a work/study program at her local Bikram studio where she would practice every opportunity she had. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear” ..this was certainly the case in Neasa’s story when she took Vinyasa Flow classes with John Merideth at Ember during one of her many visits to her long distance beau. She later moved to Georgia and trained under John's expert eye for 6 months in the art and science of Ashtanga based yoga which she incorporates into her classes. She received her 200 RYT in Aug 2014.

Neasa now lives in Woodstock with her husband David, daughter Katie and fur baby Levi. Her classes combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. Her aim is to help her students achieve balance in all areas of their life through yoga. Limitations are not an excuse to not do yoga, Limitations are the reason to start!
