Anna Hawkins

Anna was born and raised in Houston, Texas and moved to Abingdon in January of 2016 for a one-year work assignment. She quickly fell in love with the mountains, small town living, and the incredible Whitetop Yoga
community and found herself asking her company if she could stay indefinitely. She enjoys rock climbing
at Hidden Valley, wakeboarding and paddle boarding at the lake, and participates in Toastmasters in
Bristol.

Anna started practicing yoga in Houston in 2014 with hopes to nail her scorpion pose and get the perfect
yoga booty. It wasn’t until she started practicing at Whitetop that she discovered that there is so much
more to yoga than the physical asana practice. She began to find peace throughout her life as a
reflection of her yoga practice and couldn’t wait to learn more. She completed her RTY-200 with Julie
Rutherford and Vira Bhava Yoga in 2017 and is very excited to share her love of yoga with the community.
Anna is known for her contagious smile and energetic, joyful personality all of which you can expect to see shine through her classes. Be warned, these qualities may rub off on you when you attend a yoga class with
Anna.

Tamara McNaughton

Although she didn’t know it at the time, Tamara stepped on the path of yoga in 1992 when she took a Buddhism class in college. The winding journey of the next twenty years took her through experiences like living without electricity for a couple years; road tripping the country; voraciously reading eastern, shamanic, and quantum philosophies; studying Brain Gym and Touch for Health; experiencing Rebirthing; working with youth; and farming. She apprenticed on her first farm in 1996 where the demands of farming’s physical labor yoked her to a practice of stretching and connecting with the earth and seasonal rhythms. In 2012 Tamara graduated from Neighborhood Yoga Teacher Training taught by Valerie Midgett and Kelly Golden to whom she is ever grateful.
Tamara grew up in the country outside Washington DC and left for college in 1991. She began studying Buddhism and sporadically practicing meditation in 1992. Her world was forever altered and enhanced from her solid Christian upbringing. In college she studied Anthropology which gave her the opportunity to learn and celebrate spiritual and worldly belief systems of the civilized and primitive. She lived without electricity and pursued advanced studies in Touch for Health and Brain Gym, learning about the meridian system, the wisdom of the body’s rhythms and more. She apprenticed on her first farm in 1996 where the physical labor of farming required a practice of stretching her body and connecting with earth’s natural rhythms. The combination of all these things would later come together in her practice of yoga. In 2012 Tamara graduated from Neighborhood Yoga 200 hr teacher training in Boone, NC taught by Valerie Midgett and Kelly Golden to whom she is ever grateful. Kelly reappeared in her world in Abingdon in 2017 with Vira Bhava 300 hr training. The path was ripe for Tamara to take her practice deeper still. Tamara spends most of her time at TNT Farm N Greenhouse in Meadowview where she grows organic transplants and vegetables and grass fed beef. Her asana practice is one of tender power, flowing and holding poses, mindful of alignment, and gently infused with intention and philosophy. Let’s practice, walk the path, and grow together.
 

Maggie Fuller

Maggie Fuller is an enthusiastic newcomer at Whitetop Yoga, and an avid student of life. After years of searching for something- something for herself- Maggie finally committed to her yogic path at the beginning of 2015. Later that same year, she completed her 230 hour teacher training through InnerSea and Bristol Yoga; it completely transformed her from the inside out.
Maggie's personal yoga journey opened her eyes to all yoga really had to offer: allowing her to keep discovering her true, authentic self, as well as building the foundation from which she has learned to love and accept herself. This deeper connection and newly found love is what brought about her desire to teach and share her practice.
As she and her journey continue to blossom, Maggie has also realized yoga isn't just about what you do on your mat... It's more about taking the tools of yoga OFF the mat, into everyday life: learning to take your time, breathe, stay present, and cultivate a mindful awareness in all that you do. The literal definition of the word yoga is to yoke, to join, to connect. Yoga builds the connect to the body, breath, mind, and ultimately the connection we have to ourselves and others.
As a yoga teacher and Reiki (energy healing) practioner, Maggie's ultimate hope is to create a compassionate, supportive space for others to know the comfort of self love, and to help others find themselves, their own unique path, and recognize their natural, radiant light. Her goal is to see students go from human beings doing yoga, to humans BEING yoga.

As stated in the Bhagavad Gita, "yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self."

Maggie firmly believes that yoga is for everyBODY, and provides variations, modifications, and gentle hands-on adjustments to assist students in their own individual practice. Just as every person and their path is different and distinct, so is their yoga practice... and that is something beautiful!

This 45 minute class is a quick shot of easy movement and relaxation in the middle of your day.  Perfect to refresh during your lunch hour.
