NAME: Angela Zawada

NICKNAMES: Zawada

I’M AN EXPERT IN:

Growing and harvesting Tobacco. Making Pierogi’s, and I can hold my own on a volleyball court and beach volleyball.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN (HOW YOGA CAME INTO YOUR LIFE):

I started yoga when I was playing volleyball at U of A. I was looking for an additional form of training that was still challenging but easier on my joints, something that would compliment the plyometrics and the Olympic lifting etc. I first found Bikram, which satisfied this and then discovered Moksha when I was visiting my family in Ontario and found this was an even more amazing fit. It was both challenging and accessible especially for an ailing varsity athlete.

FAVORITE FOOD: 

My mom’s Pierogi’s, Kale and tuna, however I’m guilty of devouring Tim’s breakfast croissant sandwich (I’m real)

WHERE CAN YOU FIND ME WHEN I’M NOT IN THE HOT ROOM: 

Walking my dog Brady, enjoying the outdoors, at the gym or at my computer

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN MY CLASS:  

I work with themes, which of course leads to playing with props with some laughs along the way!
