Monica Sevigny

Through an invitation to a local class, Monica began her journey with yoga in 2010. She was inspired by the grace of her teachers and fascinated with the exploration of the internal world the practice of yoga offered her. The values she learned through various yogic techniques, including, asana, pranayama, self study and chanting soon permeated off of her mat and into the details of her life. Certified as a 200 hr Yoga Alliance teacher, through the Kunga School at the Wilmington Yoga Center, she feels fortunate to have the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with others. Her intention as a teacher is to provide a space where her students are encouraged to explore their bodies, breath, and spirit at a level they consciously choose. She hopes to inspire her students to unleash the joy that springs from following their own intuitive wisdom and heart.

Genevera Miller

Genevera studied in an eight-month 200-hour teacher training program with Frances Murchison that focused on mindfulness and the eight limbs of yoga. What began as a way to find reprieve from the busy word turned into a toolbox for living well within the world.

Genevera believes that one’s true essence is lighthearted and loving. As such, practitioners in her class can expect playful sequencing and dialogue. Genevera invites self-inquiry and exploration in her classes. And she gives opportunities for students to cultivate the wisdom to know the difference between effort and ease. Genevera believes you are your own best teacher, and as your guide, she will offer options, allowing you to choose your own path within the practice. Moreover, Genevera sees yoga as a reflection: how we practice on our mats is how we live our lives. To transfer the teachings on the mat into everyday life, Genevera offers mindfulness and meditation techniques in her classes. Genevera invites you to come fill your cup and learn new tools for living well and spreading peace in the world!

Logan Wagenseller

Yoga has opened the door for a lifetime of learning, self-discovery, and an opportunity to do what I love, teach. Committing to daily practice has taught me how to navigate life’s uncharted waters with grace and strength and instilled in me a desire to share that same sense of personal power with others. My yogic journey has encouraged a deeper connection within, and a better understanding of my relationship to what exists around me. It allows me to walk a bit softer in a hard world, and gives me peace in knowing that I am capable of creating the life I desire to live. As an instructor, I strive to always give others the love, positivity, and space to journey closer toward their own Self discovery.
I am currently 1-year in to Longwave Yoga’s 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training, a 2-year program that provides me more insight and knowledge than I ever imagined.
Through training and teaching, I hope to instill in students confidence, strength, and self-love in a strong and powerful, yet compassionate and vulnerable way, inspiring those around me to unearth their truest potential and tell their authentic story, always.

Alyssa Winfield

I was first drawn to yoga in 2007 when I saw my friend hold a flawless scorpion pose. Coming from a dancing background, I was immediately hooked on the physicality and acrobatic aspects of the asana practice. It wasn’t long after starting my yoga journey that I realized how much yoga went beyond the physical postures. Every day I am amazed how yoga has transformed every aspect of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I truly believe that if every person practiced yoga, the world would be drastically different. With this belief, and my desire to share my passion for yoga, I completed my 200-hour teacher training from Asheville Yoga Center in 2016 and am currently working on my 300-hour teacher training at Longwave Yoga. As an instructor, I try to bring joy and laughter to every class and encourage my students to try new and challenging things both on and off the mat. My mantra: Do the yoga - Be happy - Make the world a better place.
Basic Yoga introduces the foundations of a vinyasa yoga (movement and breath) at a slow, mindful pace. In this class, practitioners can expect to unite movement and breath while learning the foundational concepts of a yoga practice. All levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, options and specific alignment cues given throughout the class that appeal to beginners and those refining the basics.
