Hello Friends! I'm Grace Millsap (she/her), and I'm 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 me onto a mat for the first time, I kept coming back for the peace, clarity, and overall joy I gained from the practice. 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. Since then, my heart has been set on fire, and I've completed over 1000 hours of training in Yoga and Ayurveda, taught over 3000 hours, and created a unique Yoga teacher training school. In 2017, I 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, that was featured in Yoga Journal. My classes include the weaving of tantric technology with a focus on breath and presence. When not teaching, you can find me with my nose in a book, plotting new ways to disrupt the status quo, lounging with my teenager “puppy” Fizzgig, and soaking in the goodness of the many waves of life.
