Angela grew up playing sports and taught group fitness classes after college but thought she was entirely too intense for yoga. When the stress of her advertising job took over, she found her way to a yoga class. She knew that yoga was a good stress reliever for some, but felt totally awkward and unsuccessful in the pretzely and intimidating classes. Just when she thought yoga wasn’t for her, Angela’s mom insisted she would love her yoga teacher and took her to a Baptiste inspired class in Boston. Angela fell in love with the class and immediately dedicated herself to learning the practice to help heal her depression and anxiety. In 2003, she began teaching yoga and attended her first week-long Teacher Training with her now mentor, Baron Baptiste. In 2004, she opened YogaSport and dedicated her life to teaching others this practice.
“I love this practice because it’s for real people with everyday struggles. It’s not for the fancy, bendy or trendy (because I am definitely not fancy, bendy or trendy!); it’s for people who want to feel stronger, happier and more free in their bodies and in their lives. Every class challenges me in a different way, and unlike any other style I have tried, it feeds me mentally and has helped me grow into a person I truly love. With much tough love and lots of laughter, my classes will help you move through your life with more ease, grace and joy. If we are willing to put in the work, we have everything we need to make the changes we want in our lives. It really doesn’t get much better than this!”
