ABOUT MITRA

Our goal is to create a network of survivors in order to uplift one another and normalize experiences. It is our hope that if a survivor can see the beauty, strength, and wonder in other survivors, that it will help them see those qualities within themself.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Angelica Lopez (she/her/ella) 
500 Hour Registered Yoga Facilitator

Angelica is a Puerto Rican, CSA survivor from Holyoke, MA. She was drawn to the beauty of yoga early in her life. The practice helped her find strength which helped her survive an abusive upbringing. In college while struggling with grief, she came to understand the healing power of yoga. After a decade of committed practice, Angelica decided to pursue yoga teacher training in order to assist others in finding tools to help and heal themselves. She graduated from a 200-hour yoga teacher training program in January 2020. She has since completed several trauma-informed training programs with various organizations and recently completed her 300-hour yoga teacher training with the Ignite Yoga & Wellness Institute.

Angelica offers trauma-informed, strengths-based, flow yoga using philosophy, movement and alignment cues to help her students find their sense of agency and empowerment within.
