Angela first fell in love with MBB (and Ando) in 2011 when she owned and operated a local dance studio where Ando taught barre classes. As a client, she began noticing subtle shifts in her physical body and fell in love with the mind, body, spirit connection emphasized in class. Shortly after her love affair began, she started teaching fitness classes and finally joined the MBB team in 2013. Besides being a Mind Body Barre instructor, she is also a certified 200 RYT yoga teacher and is BUTI Yoga®, BUTI HotCore® & Sculpt, Poundfit® certified. Angela is a MBB Master Trainer, leading in-studio trainings as well as national certifications.
For Angela, it's all about spreading the positive message of Mind Body Barre and seeing her clients find strength, balance and peace.
Three words that best describe me: sarcastic, determined, optimistic
Three things you'd find in my bag: chapstick, healing stones, Swiss Army knife
I'm most proud of: my ability to take chances.
One tip I'd share with someone who wants to create a life of wishes fulfilled: Nothing is as scary as we make it out to be.
If I wrote a children’s book the moral of the story would be: in the words of Selena Gomez (and my Mom) "kill 'em with kindness".
In ten years I'll be... happy and healthy, surrounded by the ones I love.
My best kept health secret: don't take anything too seriously. You can spend your life hung up on counting calories and the number on the scale or you can treat yourself with kindness and love and indulge every now and again.
How I deal with what no longer serves me: yoga! lots of yoga!
The music you'll hear if you take my class: Bruno Mars all day.
The funniest thing that has ever happened to me: While visiting a friend in Washington DC, we were out late at a local watering hole. A few adult beverages were consumed and a group of us were out on the dance floor. I was wearing what I thought was a pretty sweet tube top with nothing underneath. As I was groovin' on the dance floor, a drunk guy crashed into me and as he was falling to the floor, he grabbed onto my tube top and took it down with him. There I was naked from the waist up, surrounded by hundreds of people with my shirt still in this stranger's hand. The worst part? Once the ordeal was over and covered up, I turned to my friends and not a single one of them had seen what had happened! All that excitement and not even one witness!!
The number one thing on my bucket list: I've thought long and hard about this. I honestly don't have a bucket list. Sure, there are loads of things I'd like to do in life but if all this were taken away tomorrow, I'd feel complete.
