Name: Angela Zawada
Nickname(s): Zawada, Zee
I’m an expert in: Growing & 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: Joey’s Mayfield (no joke), hanging out with my son Ty, 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!
