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.

Amesha Whitt

Growing up in Big Stone Gap and later moving to the tricities area, Amesha calls Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee home. Her first yoga class was in August of 2014 and she knew immediately she would want to teach. She received her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training certification through Bristol Yoga and InnerSea Yoga in August of 2015 and has loved teaching ever since. Amesha believes that yoga is so much more than a physical exercise. It is a sharpening of the mind and a discovery of the spirit. It is a light shining on the Self and on All Things; a light she loves to shine on others through her classes.

She fully believes that yoga can improve any ailments – physical, emotional, or spiritual- for any person. Other than yoga, Amesha enjoys art, literature, traveling, and her clowder of cats.

Vinyasa yoga is a style of yoga focused on creating energy, freedom and vitality. Through the perfect balance of breath and movement, this flow style practice honors each individual and their needs.  Vinyasa yoga enlivens the body, allowing for optimal health of the mind and body.  All levels welcome.
