Today I have the esteemed pleasure of sharing space with one of my favorite inversion homies, Brett Parker. We talk about her path that has made her an amazingly creative and unique teacher, how she went to a circus school to increase her inversion skills and the importance of community. I have had the pleasure of working with Brett on many different workshops and trainings. She has her own brand of charisma, that may be channeled through Cardi B. Whatever she's doing, it's working. ~Obeisance~ Connect with Brett Parker Instagram I @grlbrettyoga Website I www.h3yoga.net Connect with Adam Riehl Website I AdamRiehlHealing.com Facebook I facebook.com/adamriehlhealing Instagram I @adamriehlhealing Youtube I youtube.com/user/adamriehl/videos Email I firstname.lastname@example.org Another Podcast by Adam Riehl I Zen and Not Zen Adam Yoga & Sound Baths I beoneyogastudio.com I blissyogastudios.org Subscribe and Share Anchor Breaker Google Podcasts Apple Podcasts Pocket Casts RadioPublic Spotify --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/adam-riehl7/support
