As an avid runner for many years, Angie eventually learned the toll that the sport had taken on her body. She developed sciatica nerve problems in her right leg. It hurt to run, drive and sometimes walk. Desperate to find relief, Angie took her first yoga class in 2002 and was amazed at how much more mobile she felt after just one class. After an on again, off again practice, she decided to deepen her commitment to yoga and enrolled in her first yoga training. She has since continued her training, completing her RYT 200, and has begun her study of Yoga Therapy. Angie has received training from Dr. Linda Rowe, author of “Yoga for your Back” and a Yoga Alliance Board Member, in the area of Yoga Therapy. She has also studied with Matthew J. Taylor, of the Matthew J. Taylor Institute and President of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Her desire is to introduce yoga to as many people as possible and helping them achieve balance in their mind, body and spirit through a regular practice.
