Angela Ewari writer, coach and advocate in the wellness industry
Why Running and Yoga? With a shift in attitude and a new perspective, Angela has been able to exceed her goals in running and life.
The Running Yogini adventure began after a 15-year hiatus from running after years of battling the cycle of injury and recovery through high school and college competitive racing. As a result of my research into health, wellness, fitness and athletic training, I was able to start running again. I accomplished my dream to run along the Mediterranean Sea by finishing the French Riviera Marathon and later that year completed the Pikes Peak Ascent followed by a repeat visit with my team to the Hood to Coast Relay. The lessons and skills learned through running and yoga are applicable to the pursuit of achievement in all aspects of life. I believe in the yoga philosophy you must take care of yourself so you may give and care for others.
As the director of my own business, I apply my entrepreneurial spirit, experience and understanding to the clients and communities I serve. Through writing, speaking and engaging community leaders shared stories instruct, educate and inspire people to believe our individual wellness and social wellness are woven together. As a running coach, yoga trainer and executive manager of social programs I’ve witnessed the intertwining nature of individual wellness and social wellness that mobilizes peers to make themselves and their communities better.
Angela is dedicated to developing partnerships believing collaboration promotes individual wellness and social wellness.
While serving in the nonprofit and wellness industries I’ve had the opportunity to be an advisor of operations, director of events and an officer on the board of directors. With over a decade of distinguished experience of success directing individual wellness and social wellness programs and events, I emphasize the importance of leadership, community presence and fiscal responsibility. I believe developing relationships with people leads to the promotion of mutual organizational and personal interests and sustains long-term success.
Writing is my forum to share knowledge, experience and opportunities to develop and promote wellness. I have been asked to be an expert contributor to Runner’s World Magazine, ecomii Food and Health Alternative and various publications. Advocacy utilizes established networks and representation in the community to continue outreach and growth. My committee and board service has included Special Olympics Colorado, Women’s Global Empowerment Fund and an appointment to the Colorado Governor’s Council for Active and Healthy Lifestyles. I thrive on opportunities to integrate with community partners and programs believing collaboration provides high quality experiences and services.
