Megan Burnett, ERYT-200
A devoted dancer and athlete her whole life, Megan has a passion for movement and enjoys sharing the joy and balance that dancing and yoga provide. She got hooked on yoga in 2006 and immediately started to see a transformation in her body, her dance training, and her life. Seeking to also empower others with the tools to find balance within themselves, she started teaching yoga in 2011 and has since guided classes and workshops in cities across the country. Megan's energetic and alignment-based teaching approach creates an endorphin-releasing practice environment. She is passionate about teaching healthy alignment and yoga 'from the ground up', which draws beginners and experienced practitioners to classes that are both playful and soulful. Megan is a trained yoga instructor in Rocket, Vinyasa, Power Flow, Prenatal, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. When not on the mat, she's with her son, romping outside, playing her ukulele or cooking (dancing!) in the kitchen!

Elyse Dibartolo, RYT-200
Elyse found her love for yoga after walking into a Rocket class post college in 2014. Movement was always a part of her life, having danced and been an athlete growing up. With both parents being Chiropractors, she values a healthy body and mind for happiness in life. Originally from the Jersey Shore Elyse spent her days going upside down at the beach. Her playfulness comes out in her classes where she encourages everyone to invert themselves once a day. Over years of consistent practice she believes yoga can strengthen your body and ease your mind. Her class gives you the opportunity to develop a solid Rocket yoga practice and challenge yourself.
Elyse is a dedicated Rocket student and studies under Rocket and Ashtanga teachers every year. You can also find her in the early morning in the Mysore room practicing Ashtanga. Her Rocket classes include Ashtanga inspired hands on assists and make you wanna dance playlists. She leads arm balance & inversion workshops in the DC area yearly and is a guest teacher during 405 YTT. Her motto for practice is "a backbend a day keeps the doctor away."
