Meet Meghan, Our Newest Kerala Volunteer!

How lucky we are to have another amazing Kerala Volunteer starting our program in November!  Meet Meghan: A Yogi, outdoor adventurer, and kid-at-heart!


Hey there!
My name is Meghan Kramer and I am so excited for this wonderful volunteer opportunity in Kerala, India. I am a 21 year old student studying education, as well as a certified yoga instructor and adventure enthusiast. I am an avid hiker and yoga practitioner who loves being outdoors. You can find me on the beaches in the summer, and the mountains during the fall, winter, and spring. I was born and raised in the small town of Ramsey, New Jersey, and have never traveled abroad. I am looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone and exploring such a unique country as India, all the while gaining a valuable and enriching teaching experience.


My passion for teaching started at a very young age. I grew up in a close-knit neighborhood full of children, where my favorite game was playing teacher. My mother is also a teacher and as a result, has had a big influence on my love for teaching and helping others. I have been surrounded by kids my whole life and take pride in the fact that a large part of me is still a child at heart. Being raised alongside four other siblings has shaped me into the kind, generous, and patient person I am today.
Teaching Yoga is another passion of mine. I received my certification through Garden State Yoga in Bloomfield, New Jersey June of 2014. Getting my yoga teaching certification has deepened both my love for the practice and teaching. There is so much that I enjoy about teaching; seeing the growth of my students, helping them achieve and overcome obstacles, and most importantly having the chance to inspire students to be the very best version of themselves.
I have years of experience working with children, from babysitting, to working in a day care, to assistant teaching at Bogert Elementary School in Upper Saddle River. Kids are awesome and they truly inspire me. Nothing beats the rewarding feeling of working with children and learning from them as they learn from you. I cannot wait to teach these children English through yoga, dance, art, and just having fun!
I am beyond excited for this opportunity, and have literally been counting down the days. I am so excited to meet the kids, engulf myself in the Indian Culture, share my passion for yoga with the children, and make them smile each and every class I share with them.

All the best,
