About Your Retreat Leaders
ERYT500 Yoga Instructor
Megan Schlobohm (She/Her) is the owner of Anderson Yoga Center, and a fellow Yoga instructor at the studio. Megan has been practicing yoga since 2003, and earned her RYT200 Certificate in September 2017. In January 2018, she purchased the studio and began shaping it into the vibrant, fun, life-enriching place it is today. July 2020, Megan completed an additional 300 hours of advanced yoga teacher training with John's Creek Yoga in Atlanta, GA, upgrading her licensure to ERYT500. Megan has a Master's of Science in Mental Health Therapy from Mercer University, and spent 9 years as a professional chef alongside her husband, Ernie, working on luxury yachts in the Caribbean.
Megan's main style is vinyasa-based, with a methodical pace; special focus on the breath; attention to safe alignment, and a positive message to take beyond the mat. Megan also teaches Gentle Flow, Yin Yoga, and Restorative Yoga, which are much slower and have a deeply relaxing vibe. In addition, Megan studies and teaches meditation, offering several guided meditation classes every week, as well as special meditation events. Overall, she seeks to help students find a lifelong, fulfilling, sustainable practice. You will often hear sound-healing elements in the class (chanting, koshi bells, crystal singing bowls), and her savasana will take you to another world with doTERRA essential oils. She also teaches Goat Yoga at Split Creek Farm in Anderson and Kid's Yoga, sharing even more joy and laughter with the community!
Megan holds her Reiki Master certification, and is additionally certified in Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra Meditation, and Thai Yoga Massage.
ERYT200 Yoga Instructor
Jen Fortin, E-RYT200, began her yoga journey in 2010 after the birth of her son. Yoga brought her a sense of peace and self discovery that she had never experienced before. Jen knew very quickly that sharing yoga with others was going to be her life’s passion.
While working on her personal training certification in 2014, Jen took a chance and added a Hatha Yoga teacher training to her radar. Quickly thereafter she began working with private clients for both yoga and general health and fitness. Jen was invited to work with the former professional soccer team, the Carolina Railhawks (now NCFC), focusing on yoga for athletes, including injury prevention, muscular recovery, breath work, joint health, and improved flexibility and mobility.
In 2015, Jen decided to take her yoga for athletes teachings a step further and embarked on studying with Sage Rountree in Carrboro, North Carolina, completing her Yoga for Athletes teacher training. Soon after, Jen continued to learn under Sage and her team earning her RYT 200.
In the following years, she has worked with various collegiate athletic teams and a wide range of individual athletes from Crossfit to golfers and everything in between. Jen loves to work with athletes, but has also been known to dive into teaching a fun, strength building power class; yoga for beginners; and wide range of yoga fusion classes including ballet barre, suspension trainer flows, balance board yoga, yoga with weights, and more!
