Warm Hour of Power | Open


This class is taught by:

Rachel Taylor

Rachel, a 500-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, began studying yoga in 2006 while pursuing a degree in theater at Skidmore College in New York. Her first yoga class was designed for theater and dance majors as a way to enhance performance elements, but she was immediately drawn to the profound transformative benefits of the practice. Through breath and movement, Rachel started to uncover a stillness of the mind and a sense of empowerment that she strives to deepen every day, both on and off the mat. In July 2012, she completed the 200-hour teacher training program with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica. She completed the Longwave Yoga 300-hour advanced teacher training program in November 2016. Forever learning and always a student first, Rachel is deeply grateful for her many teachers who inspire her every day. Students can expect a unique and challenging vinyasa practice that incorporates an understanding of alignment, sequencing, and patience. Through a creative flow and a spirit of playfulness, Rachel challenges others to compassionately explore their own limitless potential.

”Through yoga, you begin to learn to accept life as it comes and realize that every breath is a gift and a new opportunity to create your own existence and happiness!” Taking a yoga class here and there, it wasn’t until a difficult life transition that Brittany fell in love with the practice. Never really feeling a strong urge toward any profession, one night after a yoga class, a strong sense of passion washed over her…“I want to be a yoga teacher!” About a year later, Brittany completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge, specializing in power vinyasa. “When I decided I wanted to teach yoga, the decision was made and I didn’t even flirt with the idea of, ‘What if it doesn’t work out?’ There was no question. I decided this was my path and the Universe delivered!” Brittany started teaching immediately after her training. Her intention in each class is to share the same joy and beauty that yoga has brought to her life, just as her teachers share with her. “There is no greater gift than to watch your students transform themselves right before your eyes.” Believing that happiness and love are the foundations for living a full life…you can expect a fun, light-hearted (and powerful) flow in Brittany’s classes. Brittany is also the studio manager of Longwave Yoga.

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.
This one-hour class is for the yogi on the go! Hour or Power is a powerful and playful style of yoga that links movement and breath. This class focuses on strength, balance, core, intervals, and stretching. You will leave feeling energized and a little sweaty! The room will be heated, 85-95 degrees, keeping the body supple and promoting flexibility as it boosts the cardiovascular system. 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.
