WHAT IS MUDDY FEET YOGA?
A giant and happy HELLO to you!
We are a team of high-vibing, fiery, caring, and kick-booty humans and we are so freaking excited to get to know you! Our intention with Muddy Feet Yoga is to bring more people to yoga by eliminating the intimidating stigma about what yoga is or isn’t. We teach to all bodies, our specialty being those needing a push to break down walls that keep them from living their best life. Our passion is growth, as we believe that the all too familiar stagnation and plateau-ing that we find ourselves in is the beginning of the end of joy and inspiration. We know that wherever YOU are, we can meet you there, and help you get on the path to where you want to be by way of physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. Growth and accomplishment on your mat will bring you growth and accomplishment off your mat. And we know, because we live it.
Muddy Feet Yoga was born from a desire to bring yoga and yogis outdoors. We lead river tours on tubes, camping retreats, goat yoga, and other amazing adventures for those who love yoga and don’t mind getting down and dirty. We believe that life can be simpler and better when we whittle it down, get back to nature, and connect with ourselves. With the addition of our new hot yoga studio and home base, we aim to further our reach with accessible, high-quality yoga classes that focus on what’s important: self-love, community, fun, and acceptance.
Join us in our nonjudgmental, non-competitive, nurturing community for yoga that isn’t pretentious, full of itself, or otherwise too stuffy. We make friends here. We hold space here. We love you here!
No negative self-talk.
No being mean to yourself or others.
No harassment of any kind.
No sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any other non-inclusive baloney.

Owner Muddy Feet Yoga
MEET MEGAN ROBERTSON
Get ready for ballzy transitions, limitless self-exploration, dismantled barriers, and just a doggone good time. Attend one of Megan’s classes or trainings, and you’ll feel supported, accepted, challenged, and inspired. Megan brings a fresh and positive perspective to yoga in Iowa City. Equipped with a passion for helping and a knack for recognizing and emboldening others’ strengths, she lives by the mantra that “people do as well as they can.” She provides tools needed for people to do and be better, happier, and healthier and her fervor for no judgment builds a laid-back experience in which YOU feel powerful.
Megan Robertson was a yoga practitioner for years, silently yearning to be a yoga teacher. But barriers inherent in the student/teacher relationship, combined with a distorted sense of what “yogic” really is, kept her from believing she even COULD become a teacher. And fearing she wasn’t “good enough” kept her from even trying. One day, after a long and lovely practice at then Zenergi yoga studio, instructor/owner Lisa Scaglione approached Megan and said “you should take yoga teacher training. It’s just, in your bones.” Megan immediately signed up. It was all she needed. Someone said “You. I see you. You’re worthy.” Megan taught yoga at her beloved Zenergi and also opened a studio in her living room soon after becoming a yoga teacher. Though things weren’t yet wildly successful, Megan was definitely in her element. Shortly after that, Megan created her 200-hour power vinyasa school and began training teachers, paying forward the favor that Lisa, then Zenergi owner, had given to her. Not long after, Megan began working for nationally revered yoga school, Wild Abundant Life, leading their 500-hour teacher trainings. At this point, Megan had created Muddy Feet Yoga and had left her 15-year career in human services. She was all in.
In Fall of 2018, Megan bought a yoga studio… and guess what! It’s that same studio where it all started. The first studio she ever stood up off of her mat and actually taught yoga, the first studio where that amazing and inspirational woman showed her she was worthy.
Megan and Muddy Feet Yoga bring to YOU an accessible, non-competitive, safe platform from which you can work through the things that hold YOU back. Megan, and her hand-selected team of INCREDIBLE, passionate, and dedicated teachers are here for you.
