MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS
Each of our regularly scheduled instructors pictured below are independent entrepreneurs at the top of their respective fields. We recognize that by working together in close partnership, we're able to build community while maintaining our unique businesses, and reach more people than we'd be able to alone. Make sure to check out our instructors private practices, linked in their bios.
We’re always open to adding new, holistic-minded instructors to our lineup. Extend your reach within our community, network with like-minded business owners and market your own services! Meridian Integrative Wellness is built on the foundation of education and empowerment, so make your class fun, inspiring, and educational; we want your attendees to go away with knowledge and skills to do whatever you're teaching on their own. Plan to teach a hands-on, interactive class (most evening classes are about two hours) and we'll handle the tough stuff: registration, marketing and support. If you're an entrepreneur interested in teaching in our gorgeous classroom, contact us to apply
