Hello Friends! I'm Grace Millsap (she/her), and I'm currently located in Charlotte, NC (Catawba and Sugaree land). My passions are rooted in science and equality, which inform my teaching of Yoga, and how I show up in the world. I spent 5 years in the fast-paced, and high-pressure, scientist world where I conducted research for UNC-Chapel Hill in the intersecting fields of nutrition, genetics, and neuroscience.
In 2013, I completed my first Yoga teacher training, and immediately began to draw connections between modern science, and Yogic philosophy. I study, and teach, from a long lineage that believes that life is inherently beautiful, and that the path of Yoga is a tool set to better navigate the many twists and turns. Specifically, from the Tantra and Himalayan Traditions of Sri Vidya. I am currently working on my massage therapy license with NCSAB - complete in August 2023.
My classes, whether restorative or flow, are infused with my passions, and quest for magic and joy.
When not teaching, you can find me with my nose in a book or researching random animal facts or plotting my next taco meal or simply sitting and watching the wind blow through the trees.
I am a student first, and humbled to call myself a teacher of Yoga. I honor Asana as one tool, of many. I am always willing to evolve and (un)learn.
Learn more about me, my social location, spiritual lineage, and my heart's commitment to my highest truth here.
