What Angela’s students say:


"Well... a special class for sure. On a physical level, Angela’s instruction is gold dust. On a mental level, the meditation techniques and beautiful atmosphere created, made me feel utterly at one. Ok, I filled up too! But so what? I was together as well though, and now feeling transformed. Immense. Thank you x"
