Meet Our Teachers
Megyen has dedicated herself to the practice, study and teaching of yoga since discovering its benefits and joys while recovering from three herniated disks. Her style of teaching comes from being injured. She knows firsthand what it is like not to be able to do many of the poses due to injury. Her philosophy on yoga has always been that it is YOUR yoga practice, not mine, nor your neighbor’s. Do what your body will allow at this moment for each moment is a different moment. Megyen spent six months in sunny California immersing herself in Bikram yoga teacher training. She came back to Ohio and began teaching in various sites throughout the community (and still does). While teaching yoga she began teaching exercise classes and is certified Silver Sneakers, Pilates, Barre, and group fitness instructor. She loves learning and is always taking small workshops to enhance her knowledge. April 2019 brought a new chapter in her life as she committed nine months to Kundalini yoga teacher training and is excited to bring Kundalini yoga to Zanesville. She has been a yoga instructor for over 20 years and attuned Reiki Master.
Megyen’s Yoga Room came about when the YMCA closed its facility on McIntire Avenue. Megyen’s Yoga Room was the first yoga studio in Muskingum County and has been in business since 2012. We pride ourselves in offering yoga to everyone in a relaxed atmosphere.
Carrie Turner is a trained In-House Reiki Master for Megyen’s Yoga Room in Zanesville, Ohio. She trained under mentor and Master (and friend) Deborah Newhouse. (Full Reiki lineage: Hawayo Takata in 1939 in Hawaii –> Virginia Samdahl –> Lile Lloyd –> Elaine Thomas –> Deborah Newhouse –> Carrie Turner)
Carrie originally delved deeper into the world of Reiki to learn how to self-heal herself and others in need. Reiki is a simple technique to relieve stress and pain and promote wellness. It promotes the flow of energy (chi, prana, etc.) and balancing energy centers (Chakras) in the body which in turn allows the body to function in a more holistic manner on the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual level.
Carrie utilizes touch therapy, crystals, color therapy, healing symbols, essential oils, Thai yoga massage, heated rooms, and sound therapy in her practice to assist in balancing energies in the body. Even simpler, her style includes relaxing light touch massage to create a pampering, soothing feel which makes the client feel extremely relaxed and assists them going into a meditative (or state of consciousness between waking and sleeping) state if they so choose. She has seen the power that Reiki has given her clients in taking back control of their life via keeping their energies in balance. Self-care (which also includes things like meditation, traditional massage, reflexology, yoga, exercise, and time in nature) is vital for a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
Carrie has also been a Marketing Consultant for Megyen’s Yoga Room since September of 2016, is active in workshop planning for the studio, and has created much of the permanent wall art. She is available for private Reiki sessions, Power Reiki sessions (2 Reiki practioners at the same time), group Reiki or Reiki/yoga workshops with Megyen Green, Reiki Shares with other practioners, color therapy sessions, Thai yoga massage sessions, and crystal/crystal grid information sharing.
