Meet Tsuya Ambassador Megan Webster. Teaching yoga gives her the opportunity to Make Others Better (MOB) everyday, which she simply loves. "Everything I do is with the simple intention of living my life in a way that will one day inspire Ella, my daughter, to make those around her better."

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from your students?
The most important thing I have learned from my students is to, literally, not sweat the small stuff. I am consistently inspired by my students, regardless of if they are newer to yoga or have established practices. One student in particular shared with me that he always feels that he can literally sweat out what is bothering him in class - and he reminded me of this one day when he could tell I was stressed out. It was such a simple, yet profoundly touching act of kindness.
What part of yoga ethics do you best identify with?
I love this so much! On any given day, I can identify with any and all of the yoga ethics, which are the Yamas and Niyamas. I most identify with the Yama principle of Ahimsa (non-violence) and the Niyama of Santosha (contentment). I also identify with Ahimsa and Santosha because I am, by nature, a fairly type A person, and I have, what my husband refers to as, a "stubbornly dedicated drive". I can be really hard on myself and my body, and, using the principles of Ahimsa and Santosha, I can remind myself to be kind to myself and to really take pleasure in my life.
Who inspires you to be a better person?
That's easy! My husband, Ned, and my daughter, Ella. Everything I do is with the simple intention of living my life in a way that will one day inspire Ella to make those around her better. Through his utter kindness and dedication to everything that he does, Ned really inspires and challenges me to be better in everything I do.
What’s your go-to post yoga snack or meal?
Well...If I'm being "good", I really adore a handful of almonds and a fruit of some kind (apples, clementines, and raspberries are my favorites)! But, I have to answer honestly, and say that I really, really look forward to a meal of veggie ravilois with pesto and a glass of Malbec. :)
What goals do you have for 2016?
I have lots! My top 3 are:
Be the best wife, mother and friend possible
Grow within my profession and bring yoga to as many people possible to create a soul-rockin' community in the process!
Get back to the practice of writing a gratitude list everyday. There is no better way to create a sense of gratitude in your life than to physically write down what you're thankful for!
