Warm Hour of Power | Open


This class is taught by:

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.

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.

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.
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. It is highly recommended that brand new yogis partake in the beginner and/or basic level classes before joining an open-level class.
