Restorative Yoga | Basic


This class is taught by:

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!

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.
