Yin & Yang Yoga | Open


This class is taught by:

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 have always been drawn to great stories of adventure, courage, and triumph... Through my yoga practice, I  have learned the greatest story to tell is the one of self-discovery. Through my teaching, I hope to instill confidence, strength, and self-love in a strong and powerful, yet compassionate and vulnerable way, inspiring students to unearth their potential and tell their own authentic story. After a series of events that drastically altered my life’s path, I dedicated myself to a powerful, daily asana practice. This daily practice taught me how to navigate life’s uncharted waters with grace and humor and instilled in me a desire to share that strength and that story with others. Life brought me to Wilmington and to Longwave in 2015, where I immediately connected to the studio and all of the wonderful teachers. It is because of their support and love that I decided to enroll in the 200-hour teacher training under the guidance of Lexi Hawks and Mary Glackmeyer. Without a doubt, it was the best decision I have ever made, as it has opened the door for a lifetime of learning and doing what I love, teaching. As an instructor, I strive to always give others the love, positivity, and space to be their authentic selves and will forever encourage my students to seek self-discovery and to tell their authentic story.

Angela took her first yoga class in 2011 while recovering from an injury. As a nurse, she knew the importance of maintaining strength and flexibility during her recovery, so she thought she would give yoga a try. "I soon began to enjoy the many physical benefits, and became dedicated to a regular practice. In addition to physical injury, at this time I was also dealing with some significant anxiety and fear. Like many, I initially approached my practice as a workout, a form of exercise, but I soon began to notice a change in my emotional well being. This shift in perspective led me to a deeper exploration of the mind body connection that is yoga. As I learned to link the movements and sensations of the body with the mind and breath, I discovered how to truly be present in the moment. The practice of yoga has taught me to journey inward and examine my own true nature, allowing me to see the light within myself and others, leading me to an abundance of joy and freedom in my life off the mat.” Eager to share the gift of yoga with others, Angela became Yoga Alliance Certified upon completion of the 200 hour Teacher Training Program at Longwave Yoga in May 2015. "Yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, physical ability, or life stage. I look forward to sharing this beautiful, life changing practice with my students." Angela is currently completing the Longwave Yoga 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
Yin & Yang Yoga is equal parts movement and stillness. The yang portion of class focuses on movement and building heat through a continuous, steady flow of postures in Sun Salutations. Once the body is warm, the yin section of class focuses holding deep stretches to surrender tight muscles and connective tissue. The combination of yin and yang yoga creates a harmonious and balanced mind-body connection leaving you relaxed and centered.

Yin postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes with the support of yoga props. Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.
