I often get asked, where did Death By Lycra come from?
I had what some might consider the dream job working for one of the biggest organisations in the world; Google. I traveled the world with work, planned events, was surrounded by people constantly pushing boundaries and achieving enormous success. I was immersed in the “work hard, play harder” machine, fuelled by caffeine, cooling down with wine, and rarely slept. Sure, on the outside I looked like I was living my #bestlife
but behind closed doors I was burnt-out, stressed, anxious and sick.
Those years at Google are what might be considered by some, the highlight of my corporate career, I worked out all the time, ate all the ‘right’ foods and yet, I had never been sicker. After months and months of being unwell, seeing general practitioner and healer after the other, I ended up at the Sydney Centre for Digestive Diseases.
My body was no longer willing to silence what my mind had been numbing. I wouldn’t listen to the signs to slow down or tune in and so my body chose for me. I could no longer choose to ignore the signs.
It was from that place I knew I could no longer live this way. I had to start over. From that day, along with my own journey, I have studied copious courses on bodywork, mindset, healing and wellbeing, travelled the world to meet many experts in their field, read anything I can in order to better understand the human body, the power of the mind, the soul and our purpose in life.
Through my work as a certified wellbeing specialist, personal trainer, eating psychology and life coach, it became clear to me how overcoming obstacles, creating lasting change and stepping up as leaders in our lives and our businesses, requires a beautiful synergy of mind, body and soul exploration. A journey that goes beneath the lycra and the layers. A modality that covers cognitive, physical, energetic and spiritual wellbeing. A chance to release stagnant energy, trauma, face fears, rewire limiting beliefs and unlock the wisdom from within.
My work is about well warriors who are ready to take the journey back home to themselves. Those seeking to live in more alignment with deeper purpose and passion. 👣💕
