Angela Goodwin

Angela was first drawn to Yoga because it offered a welcome inner sanctuary away from the stress and anxieties of hectic life. Angela has a first class BSc (Hons) in Psychology and enjoys exploring the similarities between Mindfulness and Yoga. Mindfulness increases awareness, clarity and acceptance of our present-moment reality by paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. This mindfulness approach can help combat anxiety and depression and is one of the underlying principles of yoga practice, which directs focus to the breath and body to provide a moving meditation. Angela believes that yoga is for everyone and understands that everybody’s journey is different and this individuality should be nurtured.

Angela’s classes have a relaxed, informal atmosphere to provide nourishment for the body and soul! Angela has been practicing yoga since 1998 and completed her teacher training with Brian Cooper (PhD) and Nichi Green in 2013. Angela is an experienced practitioner of Ashtanga yoga, studying with Joey Miles at Ashtanga Yoga Leeds, which has provided firm foundations for her practice of Vinyasa Flow yoga. Angela has attended workshops/training with internationally recognised teachers David Swenson, Tim Feldman, Esther Ekhart, Granville Cousins and Durga Devi.
