Meet the Owners

A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.

We are so excited to be in this journey together. The process hasn’t been an easy one but having one another to lean on has made it all worth the blood, sweat and tears. Follow us on this life changing journey. We can’t wait to add some more yoga to this beautiful community we call home.

Meet Meg….

Meg Pacella has spent ½ her life in San Diego, California and ½ her life here in Colorado. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and found herself missing the ocean and moved back to San Diego shortly after college. In San Diego she attended National University where she earned her Master’s in Special Education and Elementary Education. While studying to be a teacher she began her yoga journey in San Diego where she completed her 200 hour Core Alliance teacher training, sculpt teacher training and level 2 vinyasa certifications at Core Power Yoga.  Shortly after my certification was complete, she traveled the world with her husband David. Their travels took them to 37 countries and over 100 different cities. She stayed and immersed herself in different cultures around the world. In India they stayed at an Ashram where she learned various formats of yoga and received her certification in Ayurvedic Medicine. When returning to the United States she decided to pursue the Elementary Education path and worked as a Kindergarten teacher in Chicago, Illinois. She welcomed her first child, Guthrie in 2015 which brought the family back to Colorado to be closer to family. In 2017, they welcomed their 2nd child, Etta. While in Castle Rock, CO she has taught Special Education and 1st grade at Clear Sky Elementary. She hopes to bring her love for  kids into Peace Out Yoga offering a variety of kid’s classes and workshops. She is a fitness enthusiast and hopes to also add in some fitness elements to the studio through sculpt classes, health workshops and programs.
