Being a teacher is not a job, it is a calling. Inspired by my father, a lifelong teacher and educator in New Jersey, I too received that call and pursued a career as a classroom teacher . All the while I was studying, practicing and teaching yoga, mindfulness and plant-based cooking as my side-gigs. All of my classrooms were infused with yoga and mindfulness… I was the vegan teacher that drank green smoothies. I started leading more yoga sessions in schools, developed yoga summer camps at local studios and started teaching to many children and families. It became clear to me that I could ‘do my own thing’, create a business, and extend these teachings to places outside of my classroom. Since that fateful moment, I have developed yoga and mindfulness curricula for schools throughout New Jersey, including Princeton University, where I co-lead The Yoga and Meditation Fellowship. I opened my first yoga school in Princeton in 2019, and have since transitioned it to a global virtual community.
In addition to weekly community classes, I offer private lessons, wellness coaching sessions, corporate mindfulness sessions, lead retreats and trainings all over the world and offer plant-based cooking classes that will support you in achieving optimal health in body, mind and spirit. I am committed to sharing the science of yoga in a way that honors the whole system and its origins, and am blessed to work in many amazing institutions alongside many great teachers. When I am not practicing, or sharing the practices, I enjoy time exploring nature, traveling, creating art and amazing vegan food, retreating, meditation and time with my husband and I.T. guy, Trevor. I am grateful every day to this practice for changing my life and I am honored and humbled for the opportunity to connect and share with you.

Angela is a gifted teacher with a way of gently flowing information into others in an absorbable understandable nurturing way.
Angela has been central to my growth and development as a Princeton student. I met Angela during my orientation week during my first year in September 2018. During the stressful time of transitioning to Princeton, Angela served as guiding force. I had never done any yoga before college, and it was Angela’s reminders to breathe and stay rooted in the present that allowed me to grow as a student and as a person. The yoga community at Princeton has offered a space where rest is encouraged, where reflection is prioritized over production, and Angela has held the central role in creating this environment.
Angela taught our cohort the philosophical underpinnings of yoga, my perspective shifted to be more reciprocal and spiritual. I learned tenets of oneness, non-attachment, and dharma – ideas that seemingly contradicted my Islamic upbringing. Nonetheless, the fellowship proffered a space where I could critically reflect on which ideas resonated with me. I realized that I allowed myself to conform to an “idyllic” model dictated by society, families, and religion; I robotically maneuvered life without dedicating time for self-contemplation. With my newfound mentorship, I could articulate (or at least begin to) the beliefs I wanted to embody and carry into the future.
