Show Notes

Evie is a Canberra-based Asian Australian who is passionate about health, wellness and all things conscious living. A yoga teacher in many of Canberra’s wellness studios by dawn, a mergers & acquisitions lawyer throughout the day, and in between until dusk, she somehow finds time as a wellness blogger for online lifestyle hub, The Fashion Vault as well as the honouree title of Youth Member on the board of the Australian Red Cross, Evie offers her remaining hours on weekends as a volunteer for the homelessness and human rights sectors!

In this episode, we talk all things stress, the benefits of yoga, what is gut health and her experiences with the Australian Red Cross. Evie was generous enough to share her tips for balance, gratitude and loving your body, too! I hope you enjoy this easy and relaxed chat between Melbourne and Canberra :)
