About The Teacher

Peggy Profant, E-RYT 500, and Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher, is a playful, passionate and adventurous spirit who is on a lifelong path of Yoga. She first discovered Kripalu yoga as a teenager and changed the course of her life in 1980. Yoga was her refuge during her academic years in college. Post graduating and working in the world as a Naturalist and Wilderness Therapy Guide, she dreamt of traveling in India to learn more about yoga from it's source. In 1994 she met her teacher, BNS Iyengar in Mysore, India who taught her the traditional forms of Ashtanga yoga. She returned from India with a new romantic interest in a traveling German man and soon started a family. They put roots in Arcata, California in 1997 when Peggy finally began to teach yoga. In 2001 she became interested in a more therapeutic approach to help her heal from injuries. She found Anusara Yoga and delighted in it's poetic yet scientific style of weaving meaningful heart themes into therapeutically aligned sequences. Peggy became a 500 hour Certified Anusara Teacher in 2004 and continues to study yoga therapy. A strong believer in the benefits of meditation, she volunteers to lead meditations after most classes. As a Certified Yoga Life Coach, Peggy is a thoughtful and encouraging mentor to many students and yoga teachers in her community helping them to bring the benefits of yoga into all areas of life. In addition to Yoga and traveling, being in her garden, in nature and with her family is where she finds her deepest joy and peace. Peggy founded and operated Om Shala Yoga for 10 years, and co-founded World Family Yoga leading family yoga retreats in Costa Rica. She has been leading workshops, retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings since 2004.
