Huntington Popin was born and raised in Mission Viejo, California. Her childhood home was rich in the arts and the pursuit of knowledge, and she has been singing and acting since from a young age. She went on to study vocal and theatrical performance at university, and has a background in improvisational comedy. All of these passions and experiences have influenced her distinctive teaching personality.
Being an individual who struggles with high functioning anxiety and depression, Margaret discovered profound relief through an interest in the study of the mind, and, in particular, the connection between the mind and the body. After having studied some of the work of Carl Jung and other pioneers in the field of psychology, Margaret wanted to take a further look back to the roots of some of their theories….enter in eastern philosophy and yoga!
Margaret is a registered yoga teacher at the 200-hour level. She trained at Blue Lotus in Raleigh NC, with emphasis in alignment-based Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin yoga. She has taught in Utah, California, and North Carolina, her current place of residence. In addition, she is certified by the Connection Coalition in trauma-sensitive yoga, and is eager to bring yoga to underprivileged communities. She is currently enrolled in Blue Lotus’ advanced yoga teacher training program.
Margaret’s teaching philosophy focuses on the heart. She encourages playfulness, empowerment, reverence, and groundedness so as to be able to connect to the loving divine that resides within all living things.
