Megan Mulrine, the founder of Yogatrotter Academy, is a yoga instructor at the E-RYT 500+ level who has trained more than 600 yoga teachers in Bali during their 200 or 300hr YTT programs.
Megan specializes in teaching the spiritual roots of yoga, with classes that are interwoven with stories, legends, and deep spiritual intention. After living in Japan for three years learning Buddhist meditation and teaching yoga, Megan has now resided in Bali since 2016, where she practices Hinduism and studies with Balinese priestesses and healers.
Her passion is bridging the gap between eastern mysticism and the western mind, by helping her students recognize their own sacred nature through their personal wisdom and self-study (svadhyaya), regardless of religion or culture. Her popular course, The Gods of Yoga, which teaches the stories of the Hindu pantheon to yoga teachers so that they better understand why yoga poses are named after the Gods, has been dubbed the "golden bridge" by Hindu yoga scholars.
