"Be truthful, gentle, and fearless."

- Ghandi


 Angelica began practicing yoga in 2008.  Throughout the years, her practice was on and off with all the ebbs and flows in life. In 2015, she found her passion for yoga again, through a Vinyasa yoga studio in Sarasota. Wanting to share the same health benefits, both physically and mentally, she decided to complete her 200hr YTT (Yoga Alliance) at Heartwood Retreat Center in Bradenton, FL. Inspired to dive deeper and deeper, she is currently enrolled in a 300hr YTT (Yoga Alliance) and will complete all 500 YTT hours in April 2017. She is a Reiki Master and also holds additional certifications in Aerial Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Restorative Yoga, and enjoys teaching a variety of classes. Angelica hopes to powerfully and passionately guide and inspire students to gain peace and fulfillment within themselves and explore their creative potential on and off the mat.

Class Policies:

If you are not in the class by the start time, your place will be given to someone on the wait list. In order to receive a full refund for a pre-registered class such as one would do by signing up online, cancel at least 4 hours prior to the start of the class.  If you fail to cancel your reservation, you will be charged for the class or a class will be taken off of your package.

Ways to make the most out of your Yoga/Tai Chi experience:


Avoid eating right before your class, unless it’s a very light snack.


Avoid wearing perfumes as they can cause allergic reactions or discomfort for other students.


If this is your first time, we have some extra yoga mats available, but for extra joint comfort, please bring your own if you would like to double up. If you are unsure of what type of yoga mat is best for you, your instructor will be more than happy to make a suggestion. (There are affordable mats like Gaiam that are good. Jade is the best, but more expensive)


Bring a water bottle (and a hand towel if you think you’ll want one for sweat). Hydrate before, during and after.


Please arrive 5-15 minutes early  (If you are late, please wait until 10 minutes into class to enter, after silent meditation)
