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.

Justin Wilson

Justin began his fitness journey back in 2013 when he decided to put down the McDonald's cheeseburger and pick up an apple and a dumbbell instead. Once weighing in at over 325 pounds, Justin has since transformed his life to a much healthier and wholesome one. After being a body builder for several years, he began to realize that physically he was in more pain than he ought to be, and mentally he was unsatisfied with life. Because of this physical discomfort and mental unease, yoga came into his life.
 
Justin began practicing in late 2016 and immediately fell in love with the practice. Yoga has brought him balance and harmony, peace and tranquility in all aspects of his life. He took a 200-hour teacher training beginning in the summer of 2017 and has since set a goal to be the best yogi and yoga instructor that he can be. Recently, Justin moved to Wilmington from his home in Hollywood, Florida. His only wish in life is to help others to become better versions of themselves physically, mentally, and spiritually.
