Hi! I'm lia. now, where do i begin...

You see, I’ve been a paralegal, a professional dancer, and a digital brand strategist; I’ve studied art history, food studies and nutrition; I’m a certified Kinesiologist, GYROTONIC® practitioner, Zumba instructor and PADI Rescue diver; I love free-diving, surfing and being a digital nomad...

I guess I’m what they call a multipotentialite!

But the one thing that's been driving me throughout is the desire to 'LIVE MY WILD'...

 
 
 

For me, that means following my curiosity; living outside my comfort zone; responding to what moves my body and my heart; and striving to be the fullest, freest version of myself.

I'm now on a mission to help others do the same.

of course, there've been  breakdowns + breakthroughs along the way...

 

One of the turning points on my journey was when, after 8 years of competitive dancing in New York, I broke my ankle during an event, badly. Being the relentless spirit that I was, I got up and kept dancing. For months, I ignored the pain and kept pushing through, until my body literally began to shut down. Ironically, I was a professional dancer completely disconnected from her body.

Forced into a period of physical recovery, I started working in PR, which soon snowballed into the launch of my own digital branding agency, +ONE. Working with international brands and celebrities was incredible, but after a few years of moving at breakneck speed, my body started breaking down again, along with my personal life. Are you seeing a pattern here?!

i knew i couldn't keep doing this to myself... i had to stop. i had to listen.

 

And so began a period of healing and soul-searching. I packed up life-as-I-knew-it, and retreated to Thailand. It was there, in a state of numb exhaustion, that I said to myself, 'Lia, just focus on the little things that make you feel happy and light'. And so, I travelled, I explored. The ocean became my best friend. The Gyrotonic® Method healed my body, and Kinesiology restored my mind. I became aware of the negative patterns and beliefs that had been sabotaging my health and relationships, and I trained in some incredible healing modalities that transformed me from the inside-out.

 
 
 
I LEARNED THAT 'LIVING MY WILD' ISN'T JUST ABOUT PUSHING THE ENVELOPE AND LIVING ON THE EDGE. IT'S ALSO ABOUT LISTENING TO THE GENTLE WHISPERS OF MY BODY AND MOVING TO THE DEEPER RYTHMNS OF MY HEART. IT'S ABOUT BEING TRULY ALIGNED WITH BOTH THE SOFTEST + WILDEST PARTS OF ME.

today, I am able to do the things and go to the places that make me feel most alive.

 

That is what I want for you too. If you have a deep yearning for something more, or you're looking for a breakthrough in life, health, work or love, head over here to find out how we can make it happen! 

Love + Light,
