Meditative Restoration

This class is taught by:

Robyn Raines

Robyn became the owner of Whitetop Yoga in 2017--believing both in the practice and community it creates. First introduced to yoga fifteen years ago, she has used her practice to work toward better life balance and is amazed by its ability to create space and time.

A southwest Virginia native, Robyn moved back to the region ten-ish years ago to work in the arts. Last year she completed her Master's Degree in Natural Resources from Virginia Tech's Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability. Currently she is the Center Director at Southwest Virginia 4-H Educational Center.

Robyn is looking forward to completing her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Vira Bhava at Whitetop Yoga in 2018.

As the owner of Whitetop Yoga, she is excited to support gratitude, mindfulness, and intention with the local community and visitors to the region.

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.

This summer series offers a multilayered restorative practice. Robyn Raines will create each practice with a themed meditation to accompany the postures. Each week will have a different focus with guided visualization and poses that support that focus. 
During summer, we often find that we put all of our energy out and fill every minute of the long days. This series gives you the opportunity to rest, digest, and renew. 
We believe that meditation and restorative yoga compliment each other by giving physical postures to encourage relaxation of the body as well as a guide to encourage relaxation of the mind. 
Feel free to come to one or all of the classes in this series! However, if you do come to all 5 you are eligible for our Series Special of 30 Days for $30.
