Angela Jervis-Read E-RYT 500 has been immersed in the world of yoga since 1998. She stumbled upon the science while seeking out a way to manage her chronic back pain. Within a only a few months of practising her physical pain and attitude towards life had shifted dramatically. It was at this time that she realised that her mission in life was to spread the magic of yoga around the world.
Known as a pain specialist, Angela’s intuitive nature fuels her ability to manipulate the relationship between mind and body. She holds a private practice in Toronto, where she works one-on-one with people suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, arthritis, repetitive strain injuries and other mental and physical discomforts. Compassion and kindness define her approach.
Sought out by studios around the globe, Angela leads international teacher trainings, retreats and workshops in the both the yin and vinyasa traditions.
Angela has an incredible depth of knowledge across yoga philosophy, anatomy, asana and how to teach yoga, and she is passionate about sharing this with others. Angela truly believes that being a yoga teacher in this day and age is a very important task, and one that must be taken seriously. Good yoga teachers have the power, and the potential to spread peace and calm, as well as triggering inspiration to be a better person. This, and much more, will feed into our yoga teacher training course.
Inspirations both and on and off the mat are: Jeannine Woodall, Hali Schwartz, Sarah Powers, Tom Myers and Rishi Sudhir of the Sampoorna Yoga School in Goa – India. She makes her home in Toronto with the love of her life and her two sweet dogs.
