Holy Ship!!: Gina Turner Does Yoga With Diplo in Australia

While you were still recovering from a NYE filled with booze and bad choices, Gina Turner kicked off her 2012 by spinning music at sunrise and teaching househeads asanas on the decks of Holy Ship!!. 

Catchy moniker aside, Turner is one of the bigger female names in popular electronic music. Upcoming, she has a collaboration with John Roman that she says she's "really excited about," another with Yolanda Be Cool, and a Nouveau Yorican track release party in February. The New-York-to-Boston-to-L.A. DJ and former radio personality was wrapping up a four-week tour in Australia when we spoke with her about her recent wedding to Laidback Luke, this year's Holy Ship!!, and yoga with Diplo in Sydney.
