Episode 40: Living Your Yoga - Angelica Lopez

Angelica was drawn to the beauty of yoga in her early teenage years. However, it wasn't until college while struggling with grief from the death of her brother and a history of sexual trauma at the hand's of her father that she learned the healing power of yoga. After a decade of committed practice, Angelica decided to pursue yoga teacher training in order to assist others in finding tools to heal themselves. She is a graduate of Yoga Sanctuary's 200-hour yoga teacher training program. She has also completed teacher training certification programs with the Veteran's Yoga Project, Yoga 4 Cancer and Transcending Sexual Trauma through Yoga. She is currently enrolled in a program with the Prison  Yoga Project. Angelica uses movement and alignment cues in her classes to help her students feel a sense of agency, embodiment and empowerment. She currently teaches at Yoga Sanctuary (Community, BIPOC & Spanish), Breathing Space (where I teach public classes and bring yoga to people in recovery homes and prisons) and Bienestar (a program through Umass that offers wellness classes for the spanish speaking community). --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/steven-opalenik/support
