Slow Flow | Open

Carolyn Royce

Carolyn and yoga fell in love following a lifelong swimming career. The physical practice of yoga came naturally and helped her regain physical strength, reinforcing the connection between body and mind, and bringing an element of balance back into her life. In 2013 she completed her 200-hour RYT to deepen her practice and pursue her love of helping others. Trained in Vinyasa, meditation, pranayama and assisting technique, she places an emphasis on being a student before a teacher; learning and cultivating a personal practice in order to translate knowledge authentically to her students. She feels a strong connection to the ocean and appreciates the beautiful unannounced moments of meditative clarity that are brought about when surrounded by nature. Carolyn is committed to helping others cultivate a joyful and authentic life, no matter their unique path, finding peace within themselves. Carolyn is also a proud representative of AcroYoga as a JAMbassador, helping cultivate an inspired community based on love, sensitivity, and play in the Wilmington, NC area.

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.

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.
Slow Flow is a Vinyasa based practice that helps students develop awareness of the yogic breath while synchronizing movement. This class offers a slower pace which is nice for new students to take time in learning the poses and alignment, and offers advanced students time to explore variations. Slow flow helps to build deep transformational heat within the body while working strength and flexibility. One will leave feeling centered, calm, and connected.
