About Angelica Lopez, RYT-200
Angelica (she/her) is a Puerto Rican survivor of childhood sexual abuse from Holyoke, MA. She was drawn to the beauty of yoga in her early teenage years. Although this helped her find strength within, it wasn't until college while struggling with grief that she understood the healing power of yoga. After a decade of committed practice, Angelica decided to pursue yoga teacher training in order to assist others in finding tools to help and heal themselves. She graduated from Yoga Sanctuary's 200-hour yoga teacher training program in January 2020. She has since completed several trauma-informed training programs with various organizations including The Veterans’ Yoga Project, Yoga 4 Cancer, Transcending Sexual Trauma through Yoga, and The Prison Yoga Project.
Angelica offers trauma-informed, strengths-based, flow yoga using philosophy, movement and alignment cues to help her students find their sense of agency and empowerment within. Her goal is to treat people like people, always trying to make space for Every Body to connect with themselves and perhaps with the community.
