Samantha teaches alignment-based vinyasa yoga with an emphasis on finding the middle path during practice and in life. She teaches on average 18 classes a week that vary between corporate yoga, private yoga and group classes at YogiVibes.
She has been practicing yoga since 2008 and teaching full-time since 2014. She is an E-RYT 200 and RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance after receiving her initial training at Wilmington Yoga Center and then her 500-hour training with Cyndi Lee.
At the heart of her classes are community and playfulness. Her students get to know each other, build relationships and have fun while moving, sweating and breathing together.
E-RYT 200, RYT 500:
Jessica McGovern, RYT 200, started her path to Yoga upon reading Eric Schiffmann’s ’Moving into Stillness’. Taken as an avenue to connect and, perhaps more accurately, re-connect with the body, mind, and spirit, Yoga has proven to be a transformative experience.
After several years of home practice, extensive research into the teachings of Iyengar, David Coulter, Desikachar, Yin and Restorative schools of Yoga, she completed her 200-hour training with Yogaworks under the tutelage of Sarah Bell at Triangle Yoga Shala.
Jes believes that Yoga does not need to be constrained by one particular method or style but, rather, by synthesizing (and continuing to incorporate new knowledge) one can maximize the benefits of many different avenues to achieve internal harmony.
Maile Wilder attended her first yoga class at age 6 and yoga has since been a sounding board during difficult times, joyous times, and all the times in-between.
Maile completed her 200-RYT through Wilmington Yoga Center in 2017 and is now continuing her Yoga Education at Asheville Yoga Center towards her 300-RYT. In conjunction with ground-based yoga, she is also an AntiGravity instructor.
Maile believes in meeting each individual student where they are in their practice; Compassionate yoga for all skill levels and life stages.
Off the mat you'll find Maile enjoying coffee, reading, spending time outside, or renovating her 1977 Airstream.

She continues to be an advocate in the community for continued education in these areas, knowing that those who practice yoga regularly are less likely to exhibit chronic mental and physical health problems.
