Yoga Teacher Training Instructors

Meg - Yoga Teacher Training Instructor


Born and raised in Albany, NY by a lineage of school teachers – I came to yoga after years of self-destructive behavior, partying and heading down the wrong path in the fast lane. I stumbled into a yoga class at a gym attempting to “change my life,” and something just clicked with me there. I continued my practice for a couple years at the gym and local studios until I stumbled upon a teacher that brought me to tears every single class. Something was moving, shifting inside of me. I was going through some big changes in my life and yoga became my form of medicine and healing. After sticking with that teacher (thanks Elex for the years of crying savasanas) for a number of years, one day in class as we were prompted to set our intention, I knew I wanted to share this gift that was given to me through the ever-marvelous practice of yoga. I pursued my first yoga teacher training and was lucky to be able to teach for a while at some wonderful local studios. I soon after pursued a second teacher training, sprinkled with inspiring workshops and continuing education opportunities with master teachers nationally over the years. I am so lucky to have crossed paths with such wonderful teachers and numerous students that have opened my eyes to the intricacies and magic of this practice and encouraged me to continue expand my studies and stay ever inspired (and mesmerized!). Eventually along the way my husband and I decided it was time to embark on opening our own studio, Jai and the rest is history! One of my passions has always been building community and I am now able to nourish a community that is so special and important to me, my own journey, and with the hand of Divine Grace, the Capital Region at large.
Dustin - Yoga Teacher Training Instructor


In 2012 Dustin grew tired of a wreckless, carefree, partying lifestyle that accompanied him through the majority of his adult life. Feeling as though he had no other option he decided to take refuge in clean living. With a new diet underway, a budding yoga practice (under the tutelage of Meg Allen) and a new perspective on life; Dustin took the plunge to take a trip to the Mother Land of yoga, India. There he discovered that there was so much more to yoga beyond the physical practice that he had just embarked on back home. On this life-changing retreat, he also met both of his teachers, Raghunath and Sondra Loring, who he soon after completed his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with. Dustin inspires others through his story to take a different approach to their lives and their practices. He is living proof that change is not only possible, but can be fun and exciting. Dustin is forever grateful for this practice of yoga, which has now intertwined his love of travel and taken him back to India and other places like Germany, Mexico, and Costa Rica.


Mandy Koennecke, MS, NNP-BC, RYT-500
It was time to take better care of myself. With a background in martial arts, I was drawn to yoga as an ancient art, but the idea of going to a class was intimidating. With the encouragement of a dear friend, I walked in to the beautiful space. Finding my practice was like a breath of fresh air. In time, I was inspired to complete teacher certifications with renowned yoga teacher, Meg Horan at JAI Yoga School.

I invite you to embark on a journey of self discovery through insightfully sequenced classes with a comprehensive foundation in science infused with the love of bhakti yoga. Expect to move, feel, smile, and challenge yourself wherever you are in your practice with kindness and encouragement. Your yoga is waiting for you.

When I am not practicing asana, I enjoy family time with my husband and 4 children, painting, coastal vacations, and my work as a neonatal nurse practitioner.

Serving in gratitude for my teachers and community.
