Get to know the Buddha Belly team


buddha-megMeg Hanisch is a co-founder of Buddha Belly Kids Yoga and is thrilled to combine her love of yoga with her passion for teaching children. She has been a classroom teacher, reading specialist, and literacy coach during the last seven years. She has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Roosevelt University Chicago and a Masters Degree in Reading from Concordia University. Nothing brings her more happiness than children’s literature and through this passion she uniquely incorporates storybooks into her yoga practice. It excites her to see the freedom of expression, creativity, and downright joy that yoga brings to children of all ages. Meg is certified to teach yoga for children through Rainbow Kids Yoga and she holds a certification in yoga with weights from Zen Yoga Garage in Chicago.

Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.
