MEGAN MARIE GATES.
Whether I am rolling out my mat, rolling in the dirt or dancing ecstatically, I feel more connected to my heart + creative spark when I am in motion. Coming from a long-time background in theatre and dance, the fusion of creative + yogic arts guided me to deepen my love of these practices with greater sense of the Sacred; helping me find my voice as a spoken word poet, sound worker, meditation guide + yoga teacher.
I teach a fusion of movement + sound alchemy; working with vibrational + motion medicinals for activated creativity, health and embodiment. I am wildly inspired by the pulse and cycles of nature, storytelling, tantric philosophy, hatha vinyasa yoga, dance + shamanic practices. An ecstatic nomad, my travels throughout the world greatly have influenced my every move, effected deeply by traditional + indigenous music, movement and world cultures.
My connection to Spirit and to Earth supports every little word + little shimmy that comes out of me.
With deep ties world-wide, my current resting place is split between Prince Edward County + Toronto where you can find me galavanting in the fields and forests; offering up movement, writing all the poetry, making all the music + planning all the adventures.
