Angela’s classes will guide the students through a mindful moving meditation encouraging the them to find freedom of movement and expression through their practice. Her classes are energetic and soulful, focused on alignment, pranayama and meditation with a touch of playful energy "we take ourselves too seriously most of the time. I see our time on our mats, besides being a time of self reflection, as an opportunity to bring our inner child, our playful nature, out to play”.
As a yoga practitioner and instructor, Natalia focuses on the restorative, meditative, and energetic aspects of the practice.

She has created 9 restorative workshops inspired by the chakras, or energetic centers, and western psychology and leads them internationally .

I am an ERYT 500 Hrs. Yoga Alliance Teacher and Licensed Massage Therapist. l was trained in Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Nuad Boran (Thai assisted Yoga), but it was when I discovered Vinyasa Krama with Rae Indigo and United Yoga that it all came into place. It enhanced my teachings to deliver an intelligent class with wise progressions and smooth flow while exploring multiple directions of mobility that will keep you mindfully aware in practice.
I enhanced my sensitivity so I can deliver the class that my students need and the challenge that is appropriate for the level of each practitioner.
You can expect some new asanas, breath work combinations and a fun playlist to raise your vibration and experience a psycho-emotional uplift.
See you on the Mats.
Julie V has been practicing yoga for nine years and teaching for five of them. Her focus is Power Vinyasa yoga, with a strong emphasis in breathing and alignment. Empowering her students to lead with confidence and quiet strength, she enjoys watching them grow and expand their practice.
While she has traditionally worked with athletes —particularly those in the CrossFit world— Julie has started to shift her focus to highlight the power of breathing and presence in her classes. Always ensuring that the breath is tied gracefully to the asana, she emphasizes its connection to the pose. She loves to interweave thought-provoking words and narratives as she teaches to keep her students fully engaged.
On a physical and practical level, her classes will improve your flexibility, reduce muscle soreness and build strength. But her biggest pride comes witnessing the changes within her students, from mindset shifts to increased self-love. She enjoys working with all skill levels and always prioritizes proper alignment to ensure a safe practice. While she can be physically demanding, she is also highly skilled with relaxation and meditation techniques.
Julie is strong and energetic, yet always encouraging and empathetic. She loves to connect with her students beyond the mat, and always loves a good laugh.
