Angela began teaching yoga in 2004 while obtaining her degree in Elementary Education. Having started practicing yoga herself to alleviate chronic back pain and symptoms of depression, she was able to begin living a life she didn’t even know could exist.
Angela has completed her 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training through Himalaya Yoga Valley, an internationally accredited yoga school in Goa, India. She has also completed her kid’s and Family Yoga Teacher Training through Rainbow Kids and has done additional training with Street Yoga, a non-profit that offers yoga to "at risk youth." This past January, Angela headed back to India to complete her 500 hour training with Himalaya Yoga Valley. Her 500 hour research paper was focused on, "Reconnecting Ayurveda and Yoga."
Teaching yoga to groups of all ages and abilities, Angela encourages students never to take their practice too seriously. She has lead workshops in Partner Yoga, Kids’ Yoga, Paddleboard Yoga, and Chakra Focus.
Angela can be found teaching fun and silly classes to preschoolers at Whittier Elementary in Ballard. She can be found teaching encouraging and light-hearted classes to kids of all ages at Sweat Hot Yoga in Fremont.
