Angela was first brought to the practice of yoga as a way to begin healing from injuries endured as a competitive athlete. Not only did she find relief in her physical body, but she began to find a deeper, more subtle healing occurring in her mind and spirit. This deeper sense of healing is what led Angela to India in 2011 to study the science of Yoga in the Sivananda Tradition. It was here that she began the more subtle practices of pranayama, pratyahara, kriya and meditation. She was also guided in a form of asana, Traditional Hatha Yoga, which was intriguing, inspiring, and profoundly different from the yoga she had been practicing in the West. After returning home from India, Angela continued her profession as a classroom teacher, always imbibing her classroom with myriad yogic wisdom and practices. All the while, Angela continued her individual sadhana, eventually creating the space and opportunity in her life to yoke sadhana and service. In 2016, she returned to India to study Ashtanga Yoga. It was here that she delved even more deeply into her spiritual practice, beginning to study Ayurveda, and continuing her comprehensive study of the Bhagavad Gita. Another trip to India in 2017 led her to her Guru and even deeper into the wisdom and studies of Vedanta. Angela’s understanding of dynamic movement and energetic anatomy is paralleled by her commitment to her own sadhana. She aims to share this ancient, healing wisdom and to continue to grow in her devotion, love and understanding of Yoga and the world around us. Students find her offerings sincere, authentic, challenging, accessible and comprehensive. She hopes to meet all practitioners exactly where they need to be met in their own practices. She offers her deepest love and most profound gratitude to the many teachers who have guided her on this path. It is by their Grace alone that she is.
