Rise and Shine Flow


This class is taught by:

Christina Gomez

Christina started practicing yoga in her early twenties.

She had always struggled with flexibility and was intimidated by yoga at first but once she started attending classes, she fell in love.

While Christina originally started yoga to improve her flexibility, as time went on, yoga became so much more to her than flexibility or a good workout.

Being a perfectionist she had struggled with anxiety in the past, especially when she was in graduate school.

Yoga has taught Christina to live in the moment, not worry about the past or future and to leave behind things that no longer serve her.

We are often our own worst critic, yoga teaches us to be kind to ourselves and to love ourselves despite our imperfections.

Christina completed the RYT 200 yoga teacher training program through Bristol Yoga and InnerSea Yoga.

She is constantly excited to teach and share her passion of yoga with her students.

Christina hopes yoga will improve her students' life and well being as it has done for her.

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.

The golden hour for yoga is definitely first thing in the morning when the mind is quiet and impressionable.  Set the tone for your day with this medium intensity flow.  Class includes meditation, intention setting, core work, standing flow and backbends.  Perfect way to start your day.
Pre-registration for this class is strongly encouraged.
