Lexi Hawks

Lexi Hawks, E-RYT 500Hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher, is the founder and director of Longwave Yoga. Lexi’s teachings are rooted in her belief that the practice of Yoga is available to every body and help create a life of true connection and abundance. With over 10 years experience in her own teaching including private & public classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings Lexi has been dedicated in always remaining a student. Having traveled and studied extensively over the years, she holds immense gratitude for all her teachers and life mentors starting at a young age with dance, learning spirit through movement and the transformational yoga practices and studies she encountered as a young adult. Lexi continues to diversify her education to deliver classes that are both imaginative, fresh and intelligently sequenced. Her classes and teachings will take you on both a journey of the body, as she guides you through integrative movement that flows naturally from one posture to the next, and the spirit as she intricately weaves her intention through each class leaving you feeling connected, balanced and grounded. Her passion extends beyond the class as she finds true joy in guiding others to also become teachers. Since 2015, Lexi has been serving as the Director for the Longwave Yoga School’s 200 hour Yogic Studies and Teacher Training Program and is honored to co-direct the 300 and 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training Programs with Mary Glackmeyer and other senior staff at Longwave Yoga. Her biggest reward is not just in sharing her own knowledge of yoga to other students and teachers but when she witnesses those students and teachers come to realize that the light they find inside is of their own unfolding…
“Yoga is a gift to be celebrated and shared! Every moment, on and off the mat, is another opportunity to cultivate clarity and connection.” - Lexi Hawks

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.
Prenatal Yoga supports and nourishes the body, mind, and spirit during this special phase of a women's life.
