Yoga Lunch Break

This class is taught by:

Karina Wong

My yoga journey started back in 2013 when I began to practice at home using DVDs from the public library. It wasn't until I stepped into a yoga studio for the first time that I really fell in love with the practice. I loved the sense of community, acceptance, and support that I immediately felt. I was able to experience what yoga is all about, and every since then I have been hooked.
As a teacher, my goal is to share with students all the great benefits the practice of yoga brings to the physical body and the mind.
My teaching philosophy is very simple, if you have a heartbeat then you can do yoga! In my classes students will explore and become familiar with the connection the breath has with the body and the mind. I am here to guide and empower my students and let yoga work its magic. Can't wait to see you on the mat!!

I found yoga towards the end of my college career, at the point in my life I needed it the most. I attended my first teacher training in 2010 and began teaching in 2011. Over the years both my practice and my teachings continue to evolve as I study and practice this beautiful tradition. My intention for each of my classes is to hold space, to be fully present and to teach others to move and breathe in a mindful way. My classes incorporate breath work, flowing postures and meditation techniques to help reduce stress, increase energy and live a more balanced life. Each class is adapted to the needs of the individual students in attendance and modifications are given as needed. As a yoga instructor I strive to inspire others to live their best lives possible. Come practice with me to learn how to move, to flow, and let go.

My yoga journey began during a very cold, snowy winter in my living room with online courses through a local studio. As an endurance athlete, I felt trapped and anxious in this frigid, urban environment. It was then, that I discovered yoga not only satisfied my body’s desire for movement, but began changing my subtle body in amazing ways. When I have left the mat, yoga had called me back. My personal practice promises to ground and guide me through all of life’s challenges. I attended teacher
training out of curiosity and the desire to further develop my personal practice, but in a challenging and humbling way, yoga has called me to teach and spread its beautiful way of healing. My classes are rooted in a strong foundation of asana, incorporating the breath and meditation techniques for full integration of the mind, body, and spirit.

Chip Withrow

I have been a teacher for 23 years – almost half my life – of everything from driver education to middle school reading to golf to guitar to high school journalism to homeschooling an amazing 12-year-old daughter – and in November 2014 I became a certified yoga instructor.Yoga can be a powerful tool for clearing our path through this world – for being a non-judgmental observer, an active and joyous participant, and a shining light for others. I want to demonstrate that yoga can be practical and accessible, that it can ground you and elevate your senses of wonder and gratitude. My wish is that those who come to my classes feel that they can take their yoga off the mats and into their daily lives. And oh, yeah – let’s have fun in those classes, too! Because yoga has been such an incredible gift for my family, and I am delighted that I get to share that gift.

It has been just over twenty years since I first stepped into a yoga studio. Since then I have studied with many great teachers, from a variety of yoga styles. They have all shaped, and continue to shape, my experience and practice of yoga and meditation. I believe that breath and alignment are the most transformational aspects of yoga and rely on them for support as I make my way through this amazing life. After relocating to Fort Myers, FL from Philadelphia, PA in 2012, I was in search of a new yoga “home”; I found that home at Yoga Bird. I received my 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Yoga Bird in 2017. Although I consider myself a student first, I am honored and eager to share the dynamic tradition of yoga with others. My biggest source of inspiration is my three-year-old son, who is full of spirit, curiosity, and a playful approach to facing new challenges. May we all be that way on the yoga mat and in life. I am grateful to be a part of the Yoga Bird community and look forward to meeting you in the studio.
Give yourself a healthy break half way through the day. Yoga lunch break is a shortened all-levels asana practice. In just45 minutes, you’ll enjoy stretching, moving, and strengthening that will power you up for the rest of the day, without making you so sweaty you can’t go back to the office. Have a little extra time? Stay fifteen more minutes for an extended meditation.
