Rebecca Warfield

Rebecca could not be more excited to teach at Longwave Yoga—the very studio in which she received her RYT 200 and 300 certification under the guidance of Lexi Paulos. For many years, Rebecca intermittently explored various styles of yoga, by way of her modern dance and ballet training. However, Rebecca took a hiatus from dance and yoga to pursue a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature and a career teaching college English. It wasn’t until she was searching for alternative forms of therapy that she discovered the expansiveness of yoga’s capacity to heal.She believes the vehicle toward learning, awareness, and healing presents itself in many forms. For her, the most valuable lessons have come from literature and yoga, for both require us to explore and analyze the facets of our own truth. Rebecca knows from experience that yoga affords the practitioner mindfulness, choice, empowerment, challenge, and strength—on and off the mat in the mind, body, and spirit.It is Rebecca’s hope that her students are able to recognize their own potential through their practice. Her classes aim to offer choice and the exploration of student’s personal yoga journey. Becky 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.

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.

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

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.

This class will offer a well-rounded practice that includes meditation, pranayama, sun salutations, and fluid movement between postures.
