"As a yoga teacher myself, I appreciate quality instruction. I can assure you that you'll get that from Angela. She is trained in both Pranakriya Yoga and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga. The combination of styles makes her extra sensitive to the needs of pregnant women and mothers of infants. I watched her focused care with her own body in adjusting her practice in my classes when she was pregnant with her daughter. Coming from the perspective of being a young mom of two little ones helps her to understand the challenges of the physical body as well as the emotional and spiritual bodies during this sensitive time. I would not hesitate to recommend Angela as a strong, insightful yoga teacher to anyone, of any age or gender. But I am especially delighted to recommend her in teaching, guiding, mentoring young mothers through prenatal yoga."

Nathan's practice and the stories he tells to connect the mind and body changed my life. He encourages and challenges at the same time. He brings meaning to every breath and every pose. I feel the world differently since I took my first real breath in his class several years ago.
