Meg Long

Meg Long began her 13 + years of yoga practice while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya. She found the meditative aspect of yoga helped to maintain her mental well-being while working with high risk populations in extremely stressful environments. Throughout her 14 years of successful work in Social Services, she has found yoga to be a strong foundation for staying motivated and determined. Her love of helping others through difficult times led to a transition into teaching, initially through trauma informed yoga for community members recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. She found not only does the meditative aspect of yoga help with emotion healing, but also with physical healing. Though the Hot 26 series, Meg was able to heal her torn rotator cuff without the aid surgery. She also works for the Wellness, Alcohol, and Violence Education program at NMSU and teaches several Public Health courses.
PS She loves the heat, hope you do to!
