Angie graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Communication Studies, and a Cognate in Legal Studies. She worked in the Public Relations industry in the Washington, DC, area before settling in the defense industry. After going through a difficult pregnancy, and losing one of her twins, she decided to stay at home with her son. Angie found yoga that same year. She quickly realized that her mat was a safe place to continue to challenge her body and mind while being a new mom.
Yoga became her lifeline after recovering from breaking her Tibia and Fibula. Her practice significantly helped her recovery through two leg surgeries. She found that yoga gave her the strength and flexibility that she feared she had permanently lost after the accident. Coincidently, she began suffering from anxiety as a result, and found that being on the mat helped.
Angie later became a member of a rescue squad in northern Virginia, as a certified Emergency Vehicle Operator, but quickly found that line of work to be counterproductive to what she was continuing to pursue on the mat. Feeling a sense of failure after resigning, she took a leap of faith and become a certified yoga instructor. She obtained her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from the Loudoun Valley Yoga Academy and Yoga Alliance. She relocated to Gwynn’s Island in 2019.
“Words cannot describe what yoga has done for me, but if you join me on the mat, maybe you, too, can experience the magic of yoga. I welcome you.” Namaste, Angie
