Grace Millsap (she/her) is a lover of life, science geek, and passionate advocate for all forms of health, for all forms of people.   While physical well-being may have gotten Grace onto a mat for the first time, she kept coming back for the peace, clarity, and overall joy she gained from the practice. Grace spent 5 years in the fast-paced, and high-pressure, scientist world where she conducted research for UNC-Chapel Hill in the intersecting fields of nutrition, genetics, and neuroscience.  In 2013, she completed her first yoga teacher training, and immediately began to draw connections between modern science, and  yogic philosophy. Since then, Grace’s heart has been set on fire, and she has completed over 1000 hours of training in Yoga and Ayurveda, taught over 2000 hours in Charlotte, local and international retreats, yoga festivals, and created a diverse Yoga school to offer impactful teacher trainings.  In 2017, Grace co-created “Ethics in the Yoga Community”, a dynamic series that looks at the tough topics in the community through facilitated panel discussions and group practices to foster trust and connection, and was featured in Yoga Journal. Grace’s classes include the weaving of tantric technology with a focus on breath and presence. When not teaching, you can find Grace with her nose in a science book, lounging with her teenager “puppy” Fizzgig, and soaking in the goodness of the many waves of life.

What Grace's students are saying...

"Grace leads with heart in her deep stretch class, which makes for a marvelous yoga experience. Came back today to participate in this class again."
"Grace's class was so creative and playful - it was really unlike any other class I had taken. Thank you for having me - I'll be back!"
"I’ve been to a few of Grace’s Deep Stretch Yoga classes lately, both standard and heated. I play tennis and kickbox regularly and have found these classes really restore the body. She does a great job walking through the poses and mixing up her routine without neglecting the essentials. What I admire perhaps the most is that she provides a tranquil environment and genuinely integrates meditative/spiritual aspects to her yoga. I believe she is one of the best instructors I have found in Charlotte and highly recommend anyone to try one of her classes. Thank you Grace!"
