Sunrise over the Wheat Field

Oona J. Meade


Oona Johanna Meade lives with the philosophy that ‘Life IS Yoga.’ She was born into a northwest community, on Vashon Island, Washington, where the community values the health of Body, Mind & Spirit as a whole. Oona was raised with parents who each had their own yogic practice, and from this inspiration, Oona practiced as a child.  She lost touch with her practice in her teen years, but returned during college, as she also returned to herself. Oona found connection in her Seattle yogic community by having work/trade positions at two different yoga centers. Through this, she reconnected & maintained her practice.  In 2004 Oona moved to Ashland, OR, where she took a position at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and found connection with the Yogic Community. In February of 2017, Oona decided to commit more fully to her yogic path, by receiving her 200 hr. RYT (Registered Yoga Training). This has allowed her to become a guide for this practice and pave a way for others to benefit in the same ways she has. Oona is also currently a yoga Instructor at Ashland Yoga Center.
