Angel delves about how he found yoga after discovering he was HIV positive. In this intimate and riveting talk, we get a glimpse of Angel’s journey in how he grew stronger and succeeding in living a life he loves as a dancer and yoga teacher.
Angel and I met in 2015 through the Yoga Journal Business of Yoga with Laura Beth Brown. The three of us came together to form our little New Jersey Mastermind group. Being the least experienced yoga teacher of the three, I found Angel to be inspiring in that he is an “extreme” yogi. I personally think of him as like a “Redbull” yogi. He’s taught naked aerial yoga, and can probably do any advanced inversion and arm balance you can think of. But deeper than poses, his story has taught me that sickness or cancer or any debilitating situation you find yourself is only the beginning to something much brighter. Your inner will power and motivation will help you crawl out of any hole you find yourself in.
