Mary Glackmeyer

Mary is a 300-hour certified Jivamukti Yoga Instructor and a 350-hour Swan River Yoga instructor. Mary's teaching is dynamic and transformative. Her education in anatomy, kinesiology, and yoga therapy combined with her “natural ability to capture your attention,” creates a unique setting for one to discover their highest potential. She co-created Longwave Yoga’s 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training and co-facilitates both the 200-hour and 300-hour programs. She also serves as Longwave Yoga’s Programs Director. Her classes are sequenced to spark our vital fire through yogic techniques like pranayama, asana, meditation, and chanting, building a steady and joyful foundation from which we can develop the strength, endurance and serenity that we need to walk courageously towards our Truth in life while enjoying every step of the journey!

Rebecca Warfield

Rebecca received her 200 and 300-hour certification at Longwave Yoga. For many years, Rebecca unintentionally explored yoga by way of ballet and modern dance. After completing a Master’s in English literature and teaching English at the university-level, Rebecca began exploring the expansiveness of yogic studies by way of both physical practice and academic study. Like language and literature, Rebecca found yoga is a vehicle toward one’s personal articulation of what it means to be aware and clear in the world. As a lifelong learner and educator, Rebecca believes that yoga can transform one’s life by recognizing his or her own potential. Rebecca believes there is no one-size-fits-all version of yoga and enjoys witnessing the practice take a personal shape within each person’s life both on and off the mat.

Kristen Nice

I began my relationship with Yoga in 2005 at a local YMCA while living in the Midwest. Originally looking for a way to de-stress, I soon realized the scope of potential lessons Yoga has to offer. In 2010, I felt an urge to deepen my commitment to my yoga practice and took a week-long retreat in Valle Crucis, NC. While at this retreat, the effects of taking time and space for oneself became clear, and I found a new stillness through my breath. I am certified as a RYT 200 in 2013 with Ashley Ludman and am currently in my second year of the 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training at Longwave Yoga in Wilmington, North Carolina where I live with my husband, Scott, and our dog, Della Lu. I have always traveled the creative path, spending time in painting, photography and jewelry as well as the physical expressions of dance, theatre, and even as a circus clown. In my life, I look to celebrate the details--the bits and pieces that make up our surroundings. As I express myself and share my discoveries through art and yoga, I hope to help others slow down and see the details that make up their lives.
Restorative Yoga offers the chance to unwind with a completely passive practice. Fully supported with bolsters, blankets, straps, and blocks, restorative yoga will gently and effortlessly open the body and mind to relaxation. This class is appropriate for all ages and levels, including those with limited mobility or injury. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to set up props and settle in.
