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!

This is a HANDS-FREE FLOW for times when you might be dealing with wrist, elbow or shoulder pain, or maybe you cut your finger while cooking, or you're dealing with any number of reasons you might want heat-building without upper-body weight-bearing! And if you think you can't sweat when you're dealing with an injury or other complications...think again!
A flow to open your shoulders, chest, upper back, quadriceps and hamstrings so you can play with backbends including Lord of the Dance pose and a little scorpion in your forearm stand! A strap and two blocks will be helpful! The peak poses may or may not happen, but that is totally okay. You'll get a beautiful flow and I guarantee this will free up your shoulders, chest, neck and upper back so you walk away from your mat with your heart wide open. (And of course, a strong core - hello elevated mountain climbers! ;))
If you feel like you're spinning lately, it might surprise you to know that a mandala flow can lead you right back to center!

Quick but powerful core, chest and shoulders class! All you need is 10 minutes and a good attitude, and you will be amazed at how fired up you will be.

If you're looking for a shorter practice that packs a punch, here you go! The hips get a lot of love in this flow, but so do the shoulders and hamstrings!

Sometimes the harder transitions can feel so out of reach! Angela to the rescue. Whether you're looking to develop better understanding of balance and counter-balance, what to engage when you're moving from an arm balance to an inversion or the other way around, or you just feel ready to start thinking about and exploring these things, this practice is for you!
