In this extended conversation Sue and Andrew explore Ange the runner before delving into the benefits of yoga and Chinese medicine for runners.

Angie came into a deeper connection with the profound healing benefits of Yoga, meditation and awareness of Qi (energy in the body) while living in Japan. Yoga has helped her manage asthma, recover from a car accident, complete Tokyo marathon and on a deeper level, find balance between movement and stillness, will and surrender and home in heart.
Such experiences guided and inspired her to further inquire the path of healing, health and well-being.  So after almost 6 years living, exploring and traveling in Asia, she returned home to Auckland in 2008 to complete her Health Science Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) & Acupuncture, a diploma in Qi Gong and share Yoga and Asian ways of wellness with adults and youth.
?She offers over 8 years experience from her regular practice, sharing and studying Yoga in Tokyo, Beijing and Auckland.  Angie completed her advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher training in Vancouver, since having further studied and assisted teacher, Donna Farhi in Austin, Texas and Auckland, NZ.
