After many years in the corporate world as a Leadership, Organizational Development and Operations Executive Angie is thrilled to bring her expertise in the business world to the Yoga and Barre industry. Named one of Charlotte, NC's "Top 25 Women Business Executives" she has a deep interest in coaching and mentoring others to achieve results. She believes in the transformational power of people working together and wants to expand yoga and barre to as many people as possible. After growing up in VA and attending college and graduate school in Richmond she is excited to return to her home state to open the first Hot Yoga Barre. Her biggest passions are yoga, travel, and animals. You'll likely find her constant companion, Lulu, who was rescued a few years ago sitting behind the reception desk of The Hot Yoga Barre from time to time. Angie was classically trained in ballet and started teaching group fitness classes when she was 16. Finding yoga was initially an extension of her athletic pursuits, but it wasn't long before she realized the amazing benefits not only for the body but for the soul as well. Angie completed her RYT200 at a Baptiste studio in Asheville NC and her Barre training through The International Ballet Barre Fitness Association. She has a wandering spirit and loves to travel and explore every chance she gets!
