Angela Moreira was born in Brazil and moved to California about 13 years ago. She fell in love with yoga immediately. Since graduating from Yoga Teacher Training in 2010, Angela has done extensive advanced training with Judith Lasater in Restorative Yoga. The stilling and quieting effects of Restorative Yoga inspired Angela to travel to the Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. The Kopan Monastery is steeped in deep spiritual practices based in the Buddhist tradition. While living there, Angela followed a life of introspection and meditation. The experience of Angela's profound meditation journey brought her to study with Sarah Powers, whose teaching method is one of the precursors of Yin Yoga, which interweaves Yoga teachings with Buddhism, Psychology, and others traditions. Angela currently teaches yoga in studios and corporate fitness centers.
