Biomechanics & Yoga
The roads Angie has traveled all lead, through the wondrous tangles of a life well and fully lived, to mind and body hacking, landing her in the perfect nexus here at Neurohacker Collective. Growing up in a circus town — the actual hometown of the Ringling Brothers — Angie found herself surrounded by jugglers and tight-rope walkers, strongmen and magicians, acrobats and ringmasters. Some of her best friends, with whom she spent many days exploring the wilds of Wisconsin or nights shooting bottle rockets at stars (occasionally Colt .45s at phantoms in the woods) were the grandchildren of Aldo Leopold, the famous conservationist and author of “A Sand County Almanac.” Her time there, near Devil’s Lake (more appropriately the holy Indian “Spirit Lake”) imbued her with respect for the outdoors and all living things. As a teen Angie began a long study of yoga and biomechanics in that same hometown but took her midwestern accent with her out into the world: joining the army, then going to India on pilgrimage, to Thailand for study with Chongkol Setthakorn, to Costa Rica and Oman and Morocco and Turkey and even Saudi Arabia hosting seminars and developing yoga experiences with her Mindful Integration partner Michael Watson.
Angie brings a business degree, paralegal and interrogation training, and a jack-of-all-trades, yes-I’m-a-mom-too, and holy-smokes-I-love-Qualia attitude to the shop.
