Lexi

Lexi Hawks, E-RYT 500Hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher, is the founder and director of Longwave Yoga. Lexi’s teachings are rooted in her belief that the practice of Yoga is available to every body and help create a life of true connection and abundance. With over 10 years experience in her own teaching including private & public classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings Lexi has been dedicated in always remaining a student. 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


Lexi instructs the following:
  • Warm Vinyasa l Intermediate
  • Vinyasa classes mindfully unite intention, breath, and movement. This class will offer a well-rounded practice that includes meditation, pranayama, sun salutations, and fluid movement between postures in a 85-90 degree heated room. The flow-like quality of vinyasa yoga guides the mind into a peaceful connected place, while the heat keeps the body supple and flexible. The intermediate class is sequenced for those with an established yoga practice of one year or more (or coming from another discipline that highlights body awareness and mechanics.)

  • Yoga + Surf
  • Join Longwave Yoga for this yoga + surf event where we will cultivate a unique experience of connection and interconnectedness with the body, mind, and Nature. Lexi and Brandon Hawks will initiate the evening with a centering meditation to synchronize with the ocean’s energy. They will then guide the class through an invigorating yoga practice focused on core balance for riding waves, as well as stretching the muscles necessary for paddling and springing to your feet on a surf board.
     

    After the yoga practice, you will receive land-based instruction about the fundamentals and etiquette of surfing, general wave knowledge, and water safety. Once in the ocean, our knowledgeable and fun surf instructors will guide you into and on the waves. Get ready to shred, yogis!

    Special shoutout to our community partner Sean’s Private Surf Instruction for providing a 2:1 student-teacher ratio so that everyone receives personal attention while surfing during this exciting event! We will notify the participants of the specific meeting point in Wrightsville Beach on Wednesday, July 12, by 5pm. The weather, tide, and swell will determine these details.
