Addie Jo Bannerman

When stress began to shadow my sense of self-love and doubt became an obstacle, I knew I needed a mental and spiritual transformation. Serendipitously, a friend invited me to attend a Core Power Class. I was new to yoga, but I knew the class would help with my fitness goals. What I did not know, was within one class my life would be changed. I not only learned about myself and my body, but I found a lifelong calling and an answer to the transformation I was searching for. To this day, I still view yoga just as I did after that first class: a gift. Yoga found me, and when it did, I embraced every step of the journey. The next step of my journey became giving the gift I had received to others.

Through Tamal Dodge's teacher training I received my 200 hour certification. In my classes, you will find yourself moving through sequences inspired by Sadie Nardini’s Core Strength Vinyasa. These sequences activate and utilize core muscles with each inhale and exhale. Combined with a variety of yoga postures (asana), my students enhance their strength, flexibility, and breathing. One of my greatest pleasures in teaching is watching my students discover how once difficult postures become accessible through dedication to their practice. I am honored to be there with them through every stage.

To me, yoga is infinite. Yoga is honest. Yoga is love. Yoga is where you find who you are. It is a journey of so much more.

I began practicing yoga several years ago. After taking my very first class, I knew I would develop a lifelong relationship with yoga. In winter of 2015 I had overwhelming clarity that I wanted to become a yoga teacher. That very same day, I enrolled in the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at my second home, Longwave Yoga. I have been so fortunate to learn from Lexi Hawks and Mary Glackmeyer, and recently completed an 8-week apprenticeship under the guidance of Mary Glackmeyer, where I studied the Jivamukti 14 Points, the Yoga Sutra, advanced assists, and much more. Being on my mat is where I feel the bravest and most self-accepting. My classes incorporate open-level asana, pranayama, and meditation. My hope is that all beings find clear self-awareness, stillness, and acceptance both on and off the mat, and like me, cultivate a lasting relationship to their yoga practice.

Yoga, for me, is the pathway to attain deeper Self-awareness through practice, presence, and patience. My first yoga experience was 'reggae yoga' classes in 2008, and I continued exploring studio classes with Sivananda, Dharma Mittra, and Prana Flow influences. On an around-the-world trip, I settled at an ashram in India where I completed my 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training from Yoga Yida Gurukul. Since then, I've earned my 500-hour certification through Integrative Yoga Therapy. Working with special populations cemented my belief that yoga should encourage healthy, graceful aging for an abundant life. The sooner we can identify our habits, the sooner we can re-pattern for optimization. Both the challenge and the glory of the practice lies in its continuous rediscovery so that optimization is ever-evolving! I've taught from Nicaragua to Indonesia, and I'm grateful to now teach in Wilmington where Mother Ocean inspires me everyday. In my classes, I emphasize alignment, breath work, authenticity, and playfulness. Variations are offered to encourage practioners of all levels.
Slow Flow Yoga is a Vinyasa-based practice that helps students develop awareness of the yogic breath while synchronizing movement. This class offers a slower pace which is nice for students to take time in learning the poses and alignment, and offers advanced students time to explore variations. Slow flow helps to build deep transformational heat within the body while working strength and flexibility. One will leave feeling centered, calm, and connected. The room will be heated between 85-95 degrees, keeping the body supple and promoting flexibility as it boosts the cardiovascular system.
