through the body, connect to soul

Slow Flow


This class is taught by:

Megan Piersma

ERYT500, YACEP & Founder of Deha Yoga
Megan found yoga in college in 2003 and has been consistently practicing ever since. Her practice on the mat has been incredibly fulfilling in that it requires a constantly shifting perspective of the physical body. But it was her practice OFF the mat that guided her to open Deha Yoga in February of 2016. Megan received her 200-hour training in 2011 and completed her 300-hour training with Semperviva Yoga College in Vancouver, BC in early 2017. She gives gratitude to the many teachers that have helped inform her style: Bernie Clark's Yin Yoga, Judith Hanson Lasater's Restorative Yoga, Gurmukh and Gloria Latham's Kundalini Yoga, Adyashanti's True Meditation, Clara Roberts-Oss and Janet Stone's Vinyasa Yoga, Shelley Christopherson and Dr. Katy Komenda's Sanskrit for Yogis, Tiad and Surya Little's Prajna Yoga Style and so SO many more. Megan pulls on many styles, sources and lineages in her classes and requires much of her students – that they support their bodies, train their minds and connect to their own personal source of power. You will sing, dance, shake, cry, move, learn, settle, surrender, breathe, laugh and allow. Megan encourages you to be unconditionally curious in all that you do.

Hannah Wagner

Hannah's yoga journey began the moment she arrived in Anchorage in 2013. Apparently finding a place to live or unpacking her car was not as important as going to a yoga class! Through the power of our Alaskan community, the idea of 'yoga' all of a sudden became less intimidating and more accessible to her physical body and mind.

Hannah's classes celebrate the ability to move and breathe as one, honor our uniqueness, and share our energies with one another. Embracing these ideas have allowed Hannah to develop a consistent practice and be comfortable sharing and being with her own vulnerabilities.Hannah ultimately practices yoga for mental and emotional health. To connect to a divine power that is much bigger than the physical and ignite that power within others as we learn and grow from one another. In effort to deepen her practice both on and off the mat, she enrolled in Anchorage Yoga Teacher Training in 2016. Hannah hopes to offer students a safe, insightful, unique expression of their body and breath in class. Embracing the power of vulnerability and unfamiliarity, with the ultimately goal of taking these principal teachings off the mat and into student's every day lives.

Hannah is a pediatric speech language pathologist in Anchorage and spends her free time hiking, gardening, and nurturing her bunny, Banjo.

Becky Michalski

For Becky, like most of us, yoga began as a physical practice almost a decade ago. She loved the challenge of asana and delighted in a fast-paced, fun, flowing vinyasa class. Over the years, her yoga practice evolved from primarily a physical one to one that is more nurturing, contemplative, and restorative. As a critical care nurse, Becky experiences first-hand the effects of injury, stress, and illness – which are profoundly traumatizing for the person, their families, and also their caretakers. Physically and emotionally, she began to feel overwhelmed in her nursing career. By slowing down and deepening her yoga practice, she discovered its powerful ability to heal and rejuvenate. It became an important part of a daily self-care ritual that allows her to be more present and compassionate with herself and when caring for others. This realization led to a desire to share yoga with others. Becky took a 200-hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training in Nosara, Costa Rica, followed by a mentorship with Kim Greeff in Anchorage, and Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga training with Judith Lasater. With this guidance, Becky has discovered a passion for teaching yoga that is accessible to all. In her classes, she hopes to share the healing benefits of yoga and to help you live better in body, mind, and spirit.
A deliciously slow-moving and fluid vinyasa class that allows you to find your own sweet groove.
