Angela's love for yoga originated in 2017 when she began attending weekly classes at a local studio in Cloverdale. She left each class feeling vibrant, energized, happier and even felt taller when walking and sitting. That weekly studio practice evolved further into a home-based practice, integrating a deeper understanding and importance of meditation and further understanding of what a yogic lifestyle is beyond the mat. With encouragement from her friend and yoga instructor, Angela became a Certified Yoga Fitness Instructor in January 2021 with American Fitness Professionals & Associates. Since then she has completed continuing education through AFPA, as well numerous workshops with Breathe For Change, an organization that focuses on creating an environment of well being in classrooms for educators and students alike. While attending one of Angela's classes, her goal is that students feel welcome and comfortable. Students can anticipate a practice that focuses on individual ideal alignment, creating heat from within the body and a flow that links breath with movement.
