My name is Angie and I am the creative mind, open heart and free spirit behind Leaf + Lotus. I’ve been living a natural lifestyle for over 10 years now and I know the power and magic that comes through the practice of yoga, eating real foods, meditation and self-care. I am super passionate about sharing my knowledge on yoga and wellness and providing practical tools to teach you how to live a lifestyle that empowers you and makes you feel good.
I believe in the magic of yoga and wellness so much because of what it has done for me in my life. A little over a year ago while living alone overseas I fell into a deep depression that I couldn’t see my way out of. I was ashamed to reach out to anyone because everyone knew me as a positive, vibrant person and I felt embarrassed at how I had let myself slip into this dark place.
I got inspired to practice yoga again after watching the movie, “Awake,” about an amazing yogi from India named Paramahansa Yogananda that brought yoga to the west. Yoga became the one thing I felt excited about and with baby steps I began to reconnect to my true self and the light started to shine through the cracks of that dark space. I started to fall in love with food again, cooking and eating well. Taking baths and caring for my self. Over time, I was able to find a beautiful balance of physical health, peace of mind and spiritual connection that I’ve never experienced in any other practice.
Yoga in unique because it offers the space to discover strength in vulnerability, have compassion for short comings, and teaches us to see ourselves as worthy of love no matter what. It gives us grounding when our minds are dominated by thoughts and space to flow in a rhythm of movement where those same thoughts disappear. It becomes a space of refuge from the craziness of both the outer and the inner world. It’s therapy…and with it comes so much healing.
If learning how to include the practices of yoga and wellness into your life is something that interests you, I would love to connect with you over a session.
