Megan Pintus

Megan Pintus has spent the last 8 years living in various places, but has found her home in Abingdon, VA — in a large part thanks to Whitetop Yoga. She began her yoga journey in college when she practiced Bikram yoga in Washington. However, her hunger for deeper spiritual knowledge led her to explore various types of yoga and philosophy with little satisfaction. Megan, a naturally curious, competitive, and impatient person, had her first taste of peace at Whitetop yoga 2 1/2 years ago and has since been studying the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga with the WTY community. Megan found that yoga has been a safe place to ask big questions, explore the ability of her body, and continue her journey of falling in love with the world, her community, and herself.

Megan recently completed her RYT 200 hour with Katie Silcox and Julie Rutherford in Tantric Yoga — Tantra meaning ‘a method of expansion’, moving from your limitations to your full potential. Tantra believes in growth from all experiences and that demonizing any part of life is to reject the divine. This lineage utilizes asana, pranayama, and visualization in guided meditation to connect to the divine through the 5 senses. Tantric yoga focuses on harnessing Shakti, the force of creativity and change, in order to move through the world with more confidence and contentment, transforming day-to-day experiences into a cause for blissful celebration.

She completed her RYT 200 at Whitetop Yoga with Vira Bhava Yoga. Megan is extremely excited to share the tools of mediation and yoga as a way to find stillness and connect the breathe with the mind and body. Through this practice, one can learn to deal with stress, treat his or her own health, and find his or her true voice. Heal. Megan invites you to come find your breath and find the health benefits of yoga and meditation.

Have you been trying to incorporate more mindfulness into your yoga and your life? At Whitetop Yoga, we believe meditation is as important as the physical movement of yoga. 
 
Often people think they are 'not good' at meditation because they have trouble emptying their mind and sitting still. What if your mind did not need to be emptied? We believe the mind is a powerful tool and meditation is more about directing the mind rather than shutting it down. 
 
During these meditation classes, you will learn the science behind why and how meditation works as well as practical tools for you to try at home!
 
Learn the powers of partnering the physical yoga practice with the practice of meditation!
