Angela discovered an early love of movement through aerial dance and Yoga, and after many years of performing and choreographing she discovered Pilates and loved the graceful, intuitive yet challenging nature of the movement. Angela’s Pilates style is intuitive and focused, and she coaches her students to a deeper awareness of movement and strength, moving beyond functional training and toward integration and awareness of the whole body. Angela loves to combine many different modalities that she’s learned practicing Cranio-Sacral technique and Core Energetics. In her spare time she enjoys cooking and eating good food, performing on stage, singing and playing guitar and soaking in the amazing arts and culture scene in the city.
