Karla and I met when I was only 8 years old. She started dating my brother and I very quickly gained a best friend and sister (even long before they got married). Fast forward twenty years of friendship, support through the good and the challenges, and a good deal of growing up and we found that we had more in common than ever.
I trained as a yoga teacher many years ago and was being pulled towards a path of self discovery and holistic wellbeing, while simultaneously, on the other side of the world, Karla was finding her way as a mother and going through her own personal growth training as a co-active and cognitive coach, and later as a Pilates teacher.
Our conversations evolved from the general catch-ups, to contemplations, inspirations from out trainings and the amazing world of health, wellbeing and transformation.
I was very happy on my journey as a yoga teacher in London, but Karla has other things in mind for us, she wanted us to join forces and offer retreats, sharing our knowledge and passion with others. I will admit, I was reluctant at first (they always say don't work with family right?!)so we tested the waters with some weekend retreats. After our second one I realized, it was perfect! The combination of being very different in personality and yet having the same vision and wanting the same for the students on the retreat was a beautiful match.
After the second weekend retreat Karla was driving me to the airport and I thought, I want to do this again, it was so much fun! So I said simply,'I'm in!'
When I landed in London 7 hours later I had a full business plan, retreat ideas and even design options… Karla and I then went about making this vision a reality and the rest as they say is history!
Thank you for being a part of this amazing journey with us!
