Logan

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.

  • Ayurvedic Yoga | Open
  • Ayurvedic Yoga - Season/Dosha Descriptions

    Ayurveda is known as the science of self-healing and longevity. In the practice of Ayurveda (the sister science of yoga), the Doshas (constitutions) have a yearly cycle, which we experience as the seasons. There are three seasons in the Ayurvedic calendar, which coincide with the conditions of climatic changes. Approximately, in North America, we experience the following cycles:
    Kapha - Mid-February through May
    Pitta - June through September
    Vata - October through Mid-February

    More specifically, in the coastal Carolinas, the primary dosha present in the environment is Kapha, and we must always think of keeping the Kapha dosha in balance. In the Longwave Yoga Ayurvedic class you will be guided in a practice appropriate to pacify the predominate seasonal dosha, while always considering which elements are most dominant in the Wilmington, NC area.

    Pitta - June through September, pacifying fire and water.
    In Ayurveda, summer is known as the Pitta time of year. The Pitta dosha/season is the combination of the elements of fire and water. When a person tends to be Pitta dominant they can especially feel out of balance during the summer, but you do not need to be a Pitta dominant type to fall into a Pitta Imbalance. The goal of Pitta is to heat and transform; however, excess Pitta can accumulate in both the mind and the body and it’s the element of heat that tends to accumulate most during this time of year. When Pitta is out of balance, agitation, anger, rashes, or digestive inflammation can all result. In addition, a fiery Pitta imbalance can result in having excessive mental activity, leading to an overactive nervous system, or feelings of intensity or impatience. To combat those excessive Pitta tendencies, Ayurveda looks to reduce excess heat through a nurturing, cooling, water-like yoga practice. To pacify Pitta, the yoga practice will offer a temperate room (78 degrees) and a creative flow that includes postures that help move heat out of the body.

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