In 2003, she fractured her spine while training her horse. In the three years before she found Bikram yoga she experienced a lot of pain left over from her injury. She tried all sorts of pain relief methods, none of which worked until she found Bikram yoga. Angela Patrick has practiced Bikram yoga since 2006 and has taught since the spring of 2009. In 2016 she obtained her Inferno Hot Pilates training.
