OUR TEAM


MARGOT
CO-FOUNDER, BOARD MEMBER, TEACHER

Yoga is Margot’s first choice for integrating brain function and body action for the health and vitality of both. She teaches integrated, moving vinyasa flow yoga to all ages and experience levels. Her students often comment on the quality of her voice and how it helps them find a peaceful space for their yoga practice. Her gateway to yoga was recovery of whole body fitness after a significant ski accident and subsequent surgeries. Recovery is not linear and she had many stops and begin again moments on her path to having a regular yoga practice – this makes her very understanding of others with similar stops and starts to their exploration of yoga. Margot brings her scientist curiosity and knowledge with her to the yoga mat and uses brain research and trauma informed yoga practices to help her students find relief, confidence and calm in their practice. Margot is the daughter of a veteran and teaches to this population out of appreciation for their service. She is a co-Founder of Comeback Yoga, has been teaching since 2014 and is active on the Board of Comeback Yoga in every imaginable capacity.
