description
Angela Gallagher is the owner of North Joy Yoga, a yoga and meditation studio that opened in the spring of 2011 in Winston-Salem. Gallagher has practiced yoga since 1986, traveling and studying throughout London, India, Thailand, Australia, and the U.S. In addition to traditional yoga, she is exerpienced in active birth, pregnancy, and postnatal yoga. Prior to COVID-19, Gallagher was very active in the community, offering yoga classes for cancer patients, expecting mothers, and baby yoga at hospital locations. When the coronavirus began affecting the Winston-Salem community, Angela Gallagher opted to transition North Joy Yoga's classes onto online platforms via FaceBook and other modes of communication. In this interview, Gallagher discusses the transition to online classes and how difficult this was for her personally. Having minimal experience in online learing platforms, she had to adapt to her new way of teaching. She discusses the lack of personal contact that she experienced as a result of online teaching behind a tablet or computer. Gallagher also details how she continued to support community members, especially mothers, throughout the pandemic. The interview concludes with an uplifting message about remaining positive and healthy throughout COVID-19.
