Angie Hay was introduced to yoga in 1998, and it was love at first Savasana. She was instantly amazed by the capacity for both strength and calmness she found in a body that often seemed weak and worried.Countless gym classes and DVDs later, Angie joined the 200-Hour Hatha Teacher Training program at Yoga on High.This course allowed her to broaden her understanding of both the mechanics of asana and the deeper reasons behind the mystery that happens on the mat. She has been especially grateful for assisting and teaching alongside wise woman Linda Oshins in her magical classes. Angie was as proud as she’s ever been of anything to graduate from the program in 2010, and is currently enrolled in 500-Hour Advanced Teacher Training
Angie’s other true love in life is Tribal Bellydance, of which she has been a teacher and student for many years. In 2002, she founded Sacred Shimmy, a combination of bellydance, live music (and occasionally fire) celebrating the power of life and creativity. Angie became a certified American Tribal Style® teacher by Fat Chance Belly Dance® director Carolena Nericcio in 2011. Her other movement interests include African dance, Bengali folk dance, Indian classical dance, and spinning poi.
In her diminishing free time, Angie has a love/hate relationship with travel, which has led her to Europe, Mexico, Borneo, Morocco, India, and most recently Istanbul, where she took saz lessons and watched dervishes whirl. She also likes knitting, riding her bike, listening to her boyfriend drum, and the public library system.
