I am so glad you are here! If you have landed on this page, there must be a good reason.
Maybe you are just looking for a little inspiration in your life. Or maybe you are ready to make some ginormous changes and you need a little (or a lotta) guidance.
Whatever the case may be, I am here to help you.
Here is a little info about me…
- I am fiery, passionate, and stubborn as hell (My maiden name is Barrese, so I blame my Italian heritage).
- I am certainly not your typical yogi or wellness coach, which is partially why I am very good at what I do.
- I get it. I am not enlightened and never have been (and I am certain I never will be).
- On the outside, I always looked like I had it all figured out. And that my life was just perfect.
But, I have a few, not-so-perfect and not-so-pretty secrets about my journey…
In my early 20’s, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I was on anti-depressants to help get me through a really tough time. I got laid off from my job, was in a city that I hated and moved to for a guy (who I was no longer with), and I felt completely lost.
In 2004, I was lucky enough to realize my dream and start my own business, YogaSport. A couple of years later, I was just two months away from getting married, when my fiancé up and left. Yep, just like in the movies. I felt embarrassed, heartbroken, and utterly devastated. I was also financially broke and almost closed my yoga studio.
After my second child, Zoe, I felt totally out of control, exhausted, and always on edge. My doc put me on anti-anxiety meds to help me figure out how to navigate 2 businesses + 2 babies + 1 husband + 1 aging kitty + 1 anxious rescue dog (who is, of course, on Prozac).
Oh, and me, who I almost always forgot (or never had time) to take care of. I often felt so overwhelmed, overworked, and under-rested that I couldn’t get myself to practice yoga, meditate, or do the things I knew were good for me.
What got me out of my spiral? In each stage of life, I found a teacher, mentor, therapist, or coach to help me get out of my rut and back into the life I knew I was meant to live. Over the years, I have had incredible yoga teachers and mentors and business coaches to help guide me and, most importantly, let me know that it’s OK.
I really do get it.
As a fellow working woman, I know what it feels like to have expectations (ahem, often self-inflicted) of perfection and the need to do it ALL.
But, I am fortunate enough to have been surrounded by healthy, inspiring, and growth-minded individuals for the past 15+ years.
The practices of yoga and physical exercise, mindfulness, decluttering, time-organization, and a commitment to self-care have changed the course of my life for the better, and the course of 1000’s of student’s and client’s lives.
I don’t often believe in fate, but I do believe that sometimes we land exactly where we need to be.
You are in the right place for help, inspiration, and support.
If you are interested in working 1:1 with me, my approach to change is tailored to each person because we are all different. I will help you figure out what does work for you and help you make it stick.
Email me to set up a free Clarity Call and we will discuss where you feel stuck and what you can do to start living from a place of inspiration TODAY! If a program is more your style, Spark is the place to start. Read all about it here.
Life is good. But why not make it GREAT?
Why not wake up with a feeling of inspiration, energy, and freedom every day?
I know I am a better business owner, manager, wife, and mom when I take care of myself.
I am here to help you take care of yourself.
Because YES, you deserve it.
Oh, and P.S., perfect is B.S.
“In the ten years that I’ve known Angela, she’s infused my life with grace, laughter, and love. In today’s world, it is becoming increasingly rare to come across people who put their words into action, turn their dreams into reality, and practice what they preach. Angela is one of those rare people. While I have been fortunate to have worked alongside her, I am infinitely more fortunate to be able to call her my friend.” – Samantha Mabry, Author

“Angela is an inspiring, thoughtful and brilliant coach. She listened to me, helped identify what I needed to work on (even if I had no idea at the beginning of the session what that was!) and broke it down into small manageable steps. After every session I came away with clear goals to take me to the next level. It gave me an incredible sense of empowerment, knowing each week I was working to make my life better and become a more authentic person. Angela showed me I can tackle anything that comes my way. Thanks Angela.” – Rachel
