The DT Barrie Twitter Talks series interviews downtown Barrie personalities, capturing the candid, the vibrant and the spirit of the downtown core. This month, we chatted with Ann Green from Bliss Yoga about staying fit, remaining grounded, supporting local and appreciating the ‘unexpected’ intersection between urban and nature that is the trademark of our downtown.
