A BIT ABOUT MYSELF
Dedicated to Well Be-ing
My name is Angela Lexow and I am the owner of Spitfire Yoga & Bodyworks. I am a 200 E-RYT certified yoga instructor and a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner. I have over 75 hours of training in Myofascial Release. I have an additional 100 + hours of supplemental yoga education and continue to learn and gain hours of training through workshops, conferences and specific teacher trainings. Currently I am working on my 500 hour teacher training with Yoga Medicine.
I've been teaching yoga since 2013 and have taught at various studios, gyms, and corporate settings. I co-owned The Yoga Room at Fairlawn for almost 5 years. I currently co-own a new studio, The Yoga Space Topeka.
I have been active my whole life, through dance, soccer, coaching, and being a certified group fitness instructor. After the birth of my first son, I began having major problems with my back, which I mostly ignored. The day I found out I was pregnant with my second son, I also found out I had a bulging and herniated disc in my lower back. At 4 ½ months pregnant, I had successful back surgery. My off and on issues with my back are what brought me to yoga.
In July of 2021 I had a total hip replacement in my left hip from years of dance , sports and hypermobility. I will always have issues with my back and my hip joints, but yoga is a practice that is always changing and adapting to my needs. I fell in love with yoga because it is a challenge but one that is kinder on my body. The mind-body component is helping me accept the limitations I have but find there are many ways to challenge myself physically and mentally.
I strive to help my students figure out what works in their own body to feel good and be functional. I love to help people find ways to feel better in their mind and body - please contact me to set up a private or group yoga session, a myofascial release session, or a private Reiki session.
