Angela's love for yoga began in 2003 after a car accident challenged her to find a way to rehab her knees.. Successfully rehabbing both knees her curiosity grew, realizing the powerful healing properties of yoga. Her interest led her to enroll in the Teacher Training with Yogaworks. She was drawn to this program because of their emphasis on anatomy, alignment principles, and proper sequencing. She was fortunate to have been paired with the very well respected, much loved, 'teachers teacher' Annie Carpenter as her mentor. She is now a strong believer as well as a student of Annie's "smart flow" yoga; a strong vinyasa flow yoga style that brings together intelligent sequencing with emphasis on safety, and proper alignment. This type of yoga strengthens tones and tightens the body, focuses the mind and allows the body to open in a safe and logical way.
Angela's classes are playful, fun and sweaty vinyasa flow sequences. Much more than simply stretching and strengthening, yoga enlivens and awakens every cell in the body creating muscles that work together harmoniously. Regular yoga practice improves posture, relieves stress, creates powerful core strength, and integrates the body and mind creating wellness in all parts of your being. Angela constantly strives to offer her students fresh perspective, creativity and inspiration in their yoga practice. She invites you to join her in a fun expressive exploration on your mat!
