Dandapani first learnt how to use a Mac, build a website and design while living as a monk in a traditional Hindu monastery on Kauai. (Yes, I know what you are thinking. Cool monastery! You are right about that.) He has carried the philosophy of living a balanced life to New York City where he lives and coordinates this team from. Dandapani also conducts workshops on meditation and yoga around the US and abroad.
Well, it kind of all starts in Japan when Michael took a job teaching English. Needing something to do between classes he taught himself basic web design. Upon returning to Australia he managed to get a job as a web designer having only built one website.
Many years and websites later, Michael has expanded his design skills to include much of the electronic and print publishing worlds. His definition of a good day is one in which he gets to play with at least 3 different Adobe products. We should really take him outside more often.
Mike has been working with Internet technology for over 10 years and has been practicing yoga for almost as long. His goal is to bring what he's learned from yogic teachings into the business world. This means helping clients identify their technology needs and providing clients with thoughtful solutions to those needs. When he's not sitting at his computer, Mike can be found teaching yoga or enjoying the wonders of Colorado.

Muni also worked as an artist, designer, writer and editor for the international magazine, Hinduism Today. His writing focused on yoga, vegetarianism, meditation and ayurveda.
Arun grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, immersed in the sights and sounds of cultural and religious family events, where he would soak up the South Indian rhythms and street beats in a childhood that led him to end up studying at the Conservatorium of Music in Perth, studying contemporary percussion and Latin jazz. Arun has played for artists of the calibre of Michael Franti, Jeff Martin, and acclaimed London beat maker Mark De Clive Lowe.
Arun performs regularly around Australia and when not on the road he provides Actinic Designs with custom music and sounds for their various projects.
