Angela Blair

Angela was intrigued with the idea of hot yoga and in 2011 she purchased a groupon for her and her son. She was totally taken by hot yoga. In September 2012 Angela completed her 200 hour RYT training with Sacred Hot yoga. Angela loves watching as people find the connection between their body, their breath and their soul. She believes that yoga is for everyone and every body type ie: short, tall, big, little, strong, weak, flexible, and inflexible and she encourages her students to go where their body is able to go in that moment – every posture, in every movement can be modified.

Angela hopes that all that come to her class feel loved, supported, and safe to be themselves
