Lakia Meaden

Lakia has a deep passion for travel, nature and Yoga. Her journey into healthy living started in her early 20’s when she had a special needs son who required extensive care. She found that western medicine didn’t always hold the key to healing. She began a hunt for other healing modalities to help her son and found the ancient healing practice of Reiki, acupuncture and herbalism. She became a Reiki practitioner in 1999. The journey to healing had begun!

Her first introduction to Yoga happened in High school gym class. She found it fascinating and in her twenties joined her first yoga class in Chula Vista, California. Like many she practiced yoga by attending random yoga classes here and there. Until eventually she knew she wanted to take her Yoga teacher training!

She moved to Norfolk Virginia in 2020 and found the place she wanted to open her first studio space! Lakia is now sharing her love for yoga daily at her bay front studio in Norfolk, Virginia. Her studio space welcomes all levels of yoga students and hosts many types of classes. 

Her teaching style is challenging, yet accessible. By pairing breath with movement, she guide students through creative, flow-based sequences while offering insightful alignment cues and modifications. Along with teaching many styles of yoga she also hosts workshops, private session and curated living coaching program. 

She prides herself in creating a safe space for all to enjoy, learn and practice. Her passion for yoga and the amazing community of loving yogis around her has created a scholarship program that launched this year. Creating opportunity for those in need brings her peace.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). 

Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
