Sign:  Libra through and through  Tunes:  Gaaahhhhhh! There's so many!! 80's New Wave, Indie, Alternative Rock, Hip Hop   Fave feel-good icon:  Jada Pinkett Smith & Tara Brach   Joke attempt:  What do you get when you combine Starbucks and a yoga class? I don't know, but there's probably a hipster close by.  Fun facts:  I studied architecture and somehow manage to bring that concept into my yoga classes. I was a serious competitive Rhythmic Gymnast until the age of 17 (the flexible gymnastics with the ribbon and ball, etc., NOT the tumbling, strength and flipping gymnastics). I’m now a self taught handstand junkie. I LOVE punk music, 80’s new wave and 90’s & 00’s emo music! Even though I was raised in Australia, speak with a skewed Aussie accent, and see myself as an Australian, I was born in America to two American parents and have lived here for 7 years. But seriously, I’m usually listening to podcasts on yoga or on optimising the human experience. I have around 700hrs of yoga training and that’ll jump up by another 100hrs by the end of the year. Im also a personal trainer and health coach. So yea, wellness is kinda my jam!
