Alex van Frank is a Mother, Wife, Sister, Auntie, Yoga Therapist and Teacher, Meditator, Mindful movement Instructor, Anti-racist and Indigenous Cultural Practioner.
Alex is called to the healing arts because there is a deep need in this world for listeners who are compassionate, caring, and skillful practitioners.
