With an expansive background in movement and performing arts, I began my movement practice over 20 years ago, initially falling in love with movement which allowed me to enter a meditative state. What felt great in the physical form, became the gateway for a deeper emotive practice.
My practice started to fade when a lifestyle change shifted everything. Throughout my twenties I delved into one lifestyle extreme to another; from cocktail waitressing and lock-ins until 5am, to coaching 6am clients in an underground gym, it threw me into a tailspin. I was left feeling depressed, lethargic and with no joy towards movement.
After a mid-twenties burnout, I took some time out and travelled to Africa and Asia. It was only when I started to experience other cultures rich in movement and nature, did I have a lightbulb moment. The joy I experienced growing up came predominantly from two things; exploring and being in nature-rich environments and having a movement practice that demanded purpose and skill. It was the combination of these elements that made me come alive.
This is exactly what I was seeing in front of me, fit and healthy humans well into their seventies, moving with an exuberance and grace that I struggled to see in the western world.
When I started to study evolutionary biology, I finally understood the pieces that were missing in health were fundamentally down to the mismatch of our bodies not in tune with the environment. When these elements combine, there is a feeling of feeling completely alive and connected.
It is this that has driven me on my quest to delve deeper, learning from some of the world’s leaders in evolutionary biology, movement and nutrition. But what's been more important than this, has been the chance to fully embody these practices in some of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Now it’s my offering to give these lessons to you.
"You have encouraged me to breathe, move, be curious and appreciate. I can't thank you enough for teaching me to widen my gaze"
"Nala has bridged the gap between managing my injuries through a therapist and regaining optimal movement. It’s like stripping back everything I thought I knew to learn how my body should be moving."
