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.
I've been teaching yoga since 2012 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.
