Angela Grace

In addition to master’s degrees in neuroscience and special education, I am a life long spiritual seeker. I have studied and practiced many, many years in a variety of schools of yoga, Eastern philosophy, Ayurvedic living principles, and Hindu mythology. Most recently I identify with Rajanaka yoga philosophy, a Tantric philosophy. My primary teachers are Douglas Brooks and Sarahjoy Marsh. My yoga training and practice have granted me space and quietness of mind enough to feel the rhythm and pulsation of life in everything and everyone around me. It is this pulsation that hooks me like a drug and draws me into the dance of relationship with life: the sorrow, the grief, the ecstasy, the passion, the work, the need, the trees, the being. This state I recognize as Goddess, and I celebrate with each passing breath. This state I recognize as God, and I celebrate with each passing movement. This state I celebrate with each interaction, each class.

Angela Grace, MS, ERYT500, C-IAYT

Angela Grace instructs the following:
  • Making Peace with your Body
  • Our bodies hold so much on our behalf: fear, anger, trauma, loss. And Wisdom. Yet we wage war with our body repetitively. We eat, drink, sleep, and exercise too much, or not enough. We don’t speak when our gut says to shout. We quell the urge to dance because our dance is too unique. Such acts muffle our internal voice of wisdom/intuition. Yet, we can learn to listen again. We can reclaim the extraordinary resources embodied in our physical form. The techniques of yoga offer an active path toward making peace with our bodies.

    Each session will include gentle movement, breath work, meditation, and discussion. You will learn specific techniques that you can practice at home. Discussion topics include the neurobiology of willpower and shame, viragya and abhyasa, self-care and self-indulgence, and the addiction cycle.

    This workshop is for anyone wrestling with harmful habits or body image issues.
