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 high-energy core-blasting flow that incorporates core work on our backs, but also from dolphin plank and side plank. There's also time in dolphin pose with forearm stand prep (you can move into forearm stand if you wish, yogis!) but our focus is the core for sure! Have two blocks handy so I can torture you a little extra! You're welcome! (I promise we are going to laugh and have fun, don't worry! Laughing is the best core work!)
Ready to fire up your core in all kinds of creative ways? Yes? Good! Grab a block and a strap and let's play! You may curse me a few times but I promise you two things: we will laugh together and you will get so strong from a practice like this! So, laughter and strength. Good, right? Let's do this!
Need something quick to open every major muscle group and get your breath flowing? Here you go! You can do this as a one-off practice when you're short on time, or you can pair it with one of my quick core blasts or anything else that strikes your fancy :)
Want some serious core work but short on time? Bwahahahaha. I only need 11 minutes to make you feel the fire. Do this as a standalone or pair it with one of my mobility flows. Pro tip for pairing: do this first, then the stretchy practice and you'll feel great!
How's your relationship with your hamstrings? Are y'all in love, or are you in a combative relationship? Do you respect your hamstrings' boundaries but wish things could go a little deeper? Do your hamstrings have trust issues with you because you're hard on them? What's the deal with you guys, anyway? Grab a couple of blocks (and maybe have a chair nearby if your hamstrings could use some extra love and patience) and let's get in there! We will move slowly and I'll give you plenty of options along the way. I promise if you breathe deeply and practice compassion, you'll end up with your most open hamstrings ever! Heaven! Enjoy, yogis!
19 minutes of awesome, right here. Serious core strengthening, breath-of-fire, outer-hip-opening, upper back strengthening and lots of fun upside down! Get ready to cross your legs in playful ways and discover strength (and muscles) you didn't know you had!
This is a creative hamstring, upper inner thigh, hip-opening, core-strengthening super fun flow with lots of handstand hops along the way! If there's anything getting you down, this flow is sure to shake it loose and lead you to your happy place. A thorough full-body flow in a short amount of time. Ready?
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!
