"Practice, and all is coming."
Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
"My yoga practice has truly blossomed over the past few years because of Angela. Her teaching style invites everyone to the mat. She reminds us that yoga is truly for everyone because it meets you where you are today. I have been able to explore various poses and discover new things about myself. Truly a liberating experience!" ~ Toya
Certified through Yoga Works advanced training program in NYC (ERYT-500), and Pre / Postnatal through Prenatal Yoga Center in NYC, my style comes from the Krishnamacharya teachings and is influenced by the meditative flow and heat of Ashtanga yoga and the precision and stability of Iyengar yoga.
With an emphasis on intelligent sequencing, clear instructions of alignment, breath and core stabilization, I challenge physical awareness, stamina, flexibility and concentration, to create a dynamic practice. Teaching safely is a priority, I offer modifications and appropriate poses for all levels, giving students space while building confidence, a steady flow, a calm mind, and a strong presence. I encourage students to look beyond the physical and take the yoga state of being off the mat and into their life.
I am inspired to encourage and guide students to most simply, find their breath; one of the definitions of the word "inspire" is to breathe in air or inhale. I try to create a balance between working hard and exploring the mind / body connection.
I return to my own mat, continually seeking, questioning, exploring and unfolding through my practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and both the physical and energetic bodies. On my mat, I feel I can be the most honest and true version of myself; what inspires your practice?
