In the April 16 post, Wood-Tepperberg donned a one-shouldered cut-out zebra print swimsuit by Ronny Kobo. She showed off her fun and funky suit in a mirror selfie with pal Annalaina Marks. The wellness leader also posed on a bench in another snap with slicked-back hair as she flaunted her toned abs.

“At a place in my life where I only spend my time and energy with the people I love,” Wood-Tepperberg wrote in her caption. “Have to say - it makes life way more enjoyable. ✌🏼to people pleasing.”
