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 also a recently licensed massage therapist (LMBT#21407) - you can catch me at Okra Yoga and Massage beginning in November 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.

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!"

"Just wanted to reach out and express my gratitude for Grace and the vinyasa flow class she taught. Not only was the sequence engaging, challenging, and fun, but the way she wove in metaphors throughout class was on another level. On the last flow of the class, she turned us around, literally, and suddenly the flow we had been building for an hour felt totally different. Even though I knew exactly what to do, I was disoriented just by way of facing a different direction, which called me to bring even more intention and presence at the pinnacle of the practice (and therefore, greater reward from it). She said something along the lines of, “even when life turns us around, as it does sometimes, can we still find a way to create space and keep our flow?” It blew my mind at the time- both the concept and the way she so artfully illustrated it through the practice. It’s a full day later and I’m still reflecting and integrating all that I took from her class yesterday. By the way, my body feels amazing as well!"
