Meredith Wilson, MS CCC-SLP, Co-Owner
Speech-Language Pathologist, RYT-200
Meredith is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher for both children and adults. Additionally, she is a licensed speech-language pathologist in the state of Georgia and holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence through the American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She completed her yoga teacher training through My Vinyasa Practice and expanded her knowledge and experience under the guidance of Ren Wilson, RYT-200 (see below). Yoga came into her life when she needed it most after years of struggling to find balance and a calm mind through the constant stressors of life. Working out and maintaining a strong physical body was a regular practice for Meredith, but it wasn’t until she began immersing herself in her yoga practice that she learned how to control her breath and her mind. As a speech-language pathologist working for a large agency and in the public schools, she was fed up with juggling large caseloads and the never-ending paperwork demands that served as barriers to truly giving her patients the time and energy that they deserved. She began to see the benefits of a regular yoga practice in her own life and wanted to bring those same benefits to her speech therapy patients and to her community. Through yoga, she has found an inner peace on and off the mat. Meredith learned the power of presence and mindfulness and now wants to share the tools she learned to help others lead a more peaceful and centered life. She teaches a Vinyasa style yoga that welcomes creative, meditative and intelligent sequencing, which in turn helps students reset their movement patterns and rewire their brains to think more creatively and clearly. Vinyasa yoga has helped her develop strength, grace and trust, and a far better relationship with herself.

Ren Wilson, RYT-200, Co-Owner
Ren has had a passion for health and fitness throughout his life. His fitness background includes weight and resistance training, yoga, cardiovascular training, boxing and kickboxing, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He discovered yoga and meditation in 2010 after suffering from a leg injury while training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Yoga practice became a regular part of his daily life and naturally transformed into a way of living. Through his daily practice, he recovered from his injury and became fully immersed in studying yoga. He came across the teachings of Peter Marchand of Leela Yoga where he participated in various workshops including mantra meditation, pranayama, and other aspects of Tantra. Through these teachings and years of personal practice, Ren went on to complete his 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Talapoosa Center of Inner Arts where he studied under Karen Sifton, a nationally renowned yoga teacher specializing in Hatha yoga, tai chi, and meditation. Ren specializes in various styles of Hatha yoga, including Vinyasa, meditation, and pranayama. His style is centered around bringing strength, flexibility, and balance to the mind and body.
