This is the second installment in our series about the instructors and yoga teachers at the studio.
For those of you who have had the pleasure (although it may not feel like it at the time!) to participate in one of Angi's fitness or kettlebell classes, you know how much effort she puts into her class design. Everything is logcal; fun and progressive-the results she has helped produce in those attending her sessions is obvious!
Angi began training in October of 2009 with the Yoga and Wellness Studio as a way to get back into regular exercise and to meet new (and old) friends upon her return to Ontario. Prior to 2009, Angi lived in beautiful British Columbia, where she attended yoga, running clinics, and played several team sports, as well as coaching youth sports.
Over the initial course of training with Yoga and Wellness for Life, Angi fell back in love with regular training and with the encouragement of Darlene, took her YMCA Group Fitness Certification in August 2010, specializing in Strength Training.
Since then, Angi has taken several courses including her Kettle Bell certification in November 2010. One of Angi's 2011 New Year’s Intentions is to get her personal training certificate as well as get back into running in the spring.
The best part of being a fitness instructor is seeing the changes in the people in our classes - not only the physical changes, but the change in attitude that comes with being healthy inside and out as well as the confidence that comes with improved ability.
Angi's focus for the Yoga and Wellness for Life studio is to bring a positive energy and interest to those who want to gain strength and balance out their training program with strength focused exercise.
