SUP Yoga | Open


This class is taught by:

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.

Britt Butcher

Britt came to yoga in 2001 seeking freedom from injuries as a collegiate athlete. The asana practice was a natural fit for her having spent more than a decade of her youth as a competitive gymnast. As Britt’s practice evolved, so did her appreciation for her improved physical health and her newfound emotional and spiritual awareness. Britt teaches a variety of classes including vinyasa, beginner and yin yoga. She received her 200-hour certification from Pure Yoga NYC in 2010 and is currently completing her 500-hour certification with the lovely leaders of Longwave Yoga. Britt’s classes are challenging yet playful and guide practitioners toward establishing a subtle strength, inside and out. She loves sharing music that inspires her and aims to lift spirits through sound. Her intention for each class is to hold the space for her students to find whatever it is they are seeking in their practice and to enlighten them with new possibilities. She has the deepest gratitude for her teachers Kay Kay Clivio, Erica Mather, Lexi Hawks and Mary Glackmeyer.

Logan Wagenseller

Yoga has opened the door for a lifetime of learning, self-discovery, and an opportunity to do what I love, teach. Committing to daily practice has taught me how to navigate life’s uncharted waters with grace and strength and instilled in me a desire to share that same sense of personal power with others. My yogic journey has encouraged a deeper connection within, and a better understanding of my relationship to what exists around me. It allows me to walk a bit softer in a hard world, and gives me peace in knowing that I am capable of creating the life I desire to live. As an instructor, I strive to always give others the love, positivity, and space to journey closer toward their own Self discovery.
I am currently 1-year in to Longwave Yoga’s 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training, a 2-year program that provides me more insight and knowledge than I ever imagined.
Through training and teaching, I hope to instill in students confidence, strength, and self-love in a strong and powerful, yet compassionate and vulnerable way, inspiring those around me to unearth their truest potential and tell their authentic story, always.
Enjoy the bliss of mother nature and take your yoga practice off land and into the water!
 
Briefly review the fundamentals of paddleboarding and water safety on land and then join us in the water as we warm up with a paddle to a pristine "floating yoga studio" in the Intracoastal Waterways of Wrightsville Beach. Surrounded by nature, we will flow through a complete yoga practice available to all levels. SUP Yoga helps to build core strength and integration while cultivating awareness of the true present moment.
