Welcome to Veggie Vinyasa! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m Angela, yoga-lover, veggie enthusiast and mama to one adorable toddler.
These days I post fun pics of yoga, veggies and toddler life on Instagram. I teach Baptiste-style, Yin and teen yoga at Grow Yoga in Galloway, New Jersey. During the summer I teach yoga to children and adults at Belhaven Lake RV Resort in the Pine Barrens. I am passionate about natural health and choosing organic as much as possible. I’m crazy about Pangea Organics!
I started this blog to connect with like-minded souls after finishing my first yoga teacher training in 2011 at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia.
Since then I’ve moved to New Jersey, had a baby, gotten married and found an amazing community of yogis at Grow Yoga in Galloway.
Finding my community took a few years and a lot of effort. I started a Facebook group (South Jersey Crunchy Moms), attended meetings (La Leche League and a new mom support group), hosted play dates, threw parties, attended church and chatted with everyone I could on my lunch break at work. Along the way there were awkward friend dates and even a few no-shows at local parks, but I just kept putting myself out there.
Hard work and luck landed me a meeting with Tara at Grow Yoga (arranged by one of those Crunchy Mamas). It was love at first latte, we hugged and Tara hired me. I am forever grateful. Before I became part of the Grow community I spent my days in New Jersey dreaming of my next trip out of town. Now my husband can’t believe it when I don’t want to leave.
I share this story to empower you to follow your dreams. My dream was to have a local community of friends where I could feel loved and supported. I also dreamed of teaching yoga at a studio.
My dreams continue to grow. Now I aspire to empower others to follow their dreams. I hope to mentor beginning teachers and be a part of future teacher trainings. I dream of someday facilitating wellness retreats. I also want to teach yoga in a public school setting. I truly believe the sky is the limit!
What are your dreams? How can you empower yourself? Where can you find support?
