Celenie Seidel – Fashionista Foodie

There were a variety of driving forces behind opening the studio, but we really wanted to see if we could answer this question: Can you slow down, be calm and stay connected in a fast-paced city like Melbourne? We know personally, anecdotally and through research that meditation and mindfulness, as practices, can help us …
