Julie Pelikan

Like many, my yoga practice began as a physical practice. Over time it has grown to become much deeper than I ever imagined. “The greatest journeys in life are the ones that answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask!” Unknown. I feel yoga has been that journey for me, and it is just the beginning! Yoga has changed my life in amazing ways. After a yoga retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica, I knew I wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. I completed my 200 hour Kunga Yoga Teacher Training at Wilmington Yoga Center with Noelle Cavanaugh and I currently am completing the WYC Teaching Internship and Mentorship.
My classes are composed of fun and powerful flows with a focus on connection to the breath. My inspirations are Music, The Ocean, Nature, Family, friends, my teachers and fellow students.

Angela David

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.

Marie Groover

Marie has been practicing yoga for more than 11 years, but has only recently come into teaching. She believes in the expansiveness of Yoga and its ability to meet anyone exactly as they are. She has completed two 200 hour teacher trainings, studying under Kristen Cooper, Lexi Hawks, and Mary Glackmeyer here in Wilmington. Currently studying with Mary in an apprenticeship, Marie is diving deep to refine her teaching, assists, and overall presence. Marie is inspired by those who live and love authentically. She works to stoke love and peace within all beings so that they might live genuinely, truly loving themselves and the world around us as well. Marie is thrilled for the opportunity to practice, grow, and teach with the community at Longwave.
Power Vinyasa Yoga uses mixed sequencing to build strength and flexibility through a vigorous flow. By linking together yoga postures through breath awareness and combining holds, intervals, core work, and balances, one will find this practice both challenging and transformative. The pace of the class can vary and each teacher tailors an intelligent sequence and playlist of uplifting music, to their own philosophy, offering diversity and creativity in each class.

All ability levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, options and specific alignment cues given throughout the class that appeal to all levels of practitioners. It is highly recommended that brand new beginner yogis partake in the beginner and /or basic level classes before joining an open-level class.
