Glenda Mackie

I am a 500RYT yoga instructor and dance teacher/choreographer. I am passionate about somatic practices that encourage us to care for the body, mind, and spirit. Movement has been my primary form of expression and experimentation for decades! As a teacher, I create a safe environment for learning and personal discovery. I encourage my students to listen to and honor the teacher that lies within, breath by breath, on and off the mat.

Full Bio

Techniques I teach/provide:

Vinyasa, Gentle and Slow Flows, Restorative Yoga, Teen Yoga

I've been at Evolve since:

Years ago I took Carson’s class when her space was in the 5 points area! I even taught briefly in that space.

When I'm not teaching at Evolve, you can find me: 

Study, meditate, long walks, dance and choreograph, gather with special humans for yummy foods and drinks and singalongs!

My favorite thing about teaching at Evolve is:

I am always grateful to be part of a community of people who value health and well - being.

My morning routine is:

Look outside, move around in bed to loosen the joints, water and probiotics then 1 cup of Joe and some foods. After, I scurry out to teach OR check the planner to confirm the day’s events!

I'm inspired by:

Time in nature, good conversation, the arts, quiet time and trying/learning something new.

Best advice I've received:

My mother used to say, “The only way out is through”. I love this and do my best to breathe my way through whatever arises.

My favorite quote:

“Your fragility is also your strength.” Pina Bausch

Side note: My daughter has a tattoo of this quote on her forearm <3!
