I've got your back!
This is your time to be rooted in your authenticity, get to your core,
to stand your ground, get strong & awaken your inner power.
Join my mind-shifting, body shaping, habit-forming Quest
12 weeks to the strongest, fittest and
most creative & courageous YOU!
Nobody does you better
My promise? To have your back,
as you develop your clarity and congruence, optimize your strength and skills, become resourceful and resilient so you can be fully engaged with your whole-life-vision to face any situation, courageously.
To live life on your terms... unapologetically.
During uncertain times, we can feel even more vulnerable, alone, and out of control.
It takes a real leap of faith to take charge and make a change, and it is always most scary to take that first step on the journey from where you are now to where you want to be, embracing your unique and meaningful potential.
Trust me on this, you are not alone. I know because that is what my clients tell me. As high-achieving, over-giving, passionate, talented, smart and beautiful women,(and I mean that on a deep level), from the outside looking in, it is difficult to think that the following statements are what they have told me. Let me know whether some of the following resonate with you too.
By now I guess it would be fair to say that your emotional & physical wellbeing and your Me-time is suffering or non-existent?
You struggle with feelings of vulnerability, physical and emotional scars have manifested into chronic pain and tensions?
Maybe it's an illness, injury, or a loss you have suffered? Held traumas have you feeling numb and bruised at the same time?
Have you sabotaged your sleep, your weight, your fitness, your health, even your relationships?
You are anxious and uncertain, not sure which direction to take for your business, career, love,... life... you need to make a change but stuck because you can't truly figure out your deep passion and next move?
Or you are often overwhelmed, the ultimate self-critic, can't kick the procrastination cycle... stuck in paralyzing perfectionism? No wonder, you have too many distractions stealing your sleep, your focus, flow, and purpose?
Years of negative speak from regret, betrayal and disappointment have your self-worth and self-trust eluding you? All part of that procrastination/perfectionism struggle isn't it?
Have you actually been battling with some or many of these for years and the past 8 months faced with COVID has amplified it all?
If there is resonance with any of the above... then I am here to support you.
My offer is to coach you through a personalized transformational journey to your essence, your authentic space where you arrive with compassion, genuine love and accountability.
Not only is it my deep desire but I consider it my divine calling to support women like you through your sacred time of reflection, realization, release, resolve and renewal.
So this is my official invitation to you to apply to be one of just a few amazing women
on my exclusive Mindset & Movement Quest called,
This is an opportunity to pause...
to take a breath...
Close your eyes and just take a long slow deep breath,
and set an intention to be all that you can be.
Should you choose to accept my invitation, your mission is, within the next 12 weeks to;
Re-energize every cell in your body through deep Pilates core connecting, mind body work. Learning to love and trust your strong, flexible beautiful body, having stamina to do whatever YOU choose.
Learn complete self-awareness and nurture your self-compassion to regain your sense of self-worth, igniting your inner power to accomplish your deep desires. While normalizing living with ease and pleas(ure), in complete self-love
Integrate Mindset & Movement tools & habits to get in and learn to stay in the best Spiritual, Physical and Emotional shape of your life so you can move forward into your next legacy-defining actions and simply rock your world,...
Yes my dear, all of this while developing unwavering self-integrity, unshakeable confidence,
What is a ‘Quest’?
def (noun): a search or pursuit made in order to find or obtain something:
So, what is that ‘something’ for you?
I propose the SOMETHING that we have to choose is ourselves.
To make the commitment to go within, heal ourselves and celebrate our talents,skills and latent power.
No more victim-mode ladies, no more self-criticism, no more regrets and should-haves, no more excuses.
From this very moment I want you to proclaim this... say it out loud!!!
I promise to:
Know Myself - Care for Myself - Love & Honour Myself
So here's how this plays out. I commit to doing this personal work with each of my clients, my Questers, I work 1-to-1 and within a small group with a handful of committed action-oriented serious high-achieving women ready to set out on their divine mission to be all they can be, to experience the transformations and make the changes they need and want.
It is an up-close and personal adventure and in-depth journey with my full support.
You see the thing is, I know that so many outwardly amazing and inwardly beautiful, hard-working women sacrifice their entire being for and because of others, for work, for other people's priorities, because of other people's judgments and old stories! Yes, they leave nothing for themselves. I am sure you know a few women like this, like you maybe?
What I know for sure, whether it's job commitments, parenting, intimate relationships, your social circle, work colleagues, or your pursuit of recreation and wellbeing, so many women just struggle to get the balance and resolve to stop the overwhelm and exhaustion. You see if you are not self-aware and then congruent with who you are, what practices optimize your overall wellbeing and can stay on track, then true happiness and an innate sense of calm and joy will always elude you.
This is what my Quest offers you.
Please, don’t be led down the empty-promise paths of overnight success and trends.... lasting real change is a journey that you must take ownership of, not a prescription, but a process. Don't listen to voices whispering at you from the past,
yes, those same ones that always hold you back. Don’t allow destructive sabotaging mindsets and fears to take up space in your beautiful brain… because, trust me, if you are ready to take this journey with me... ease, pleasure and total sense of wellbeing, calm and courage are all within your reach!
"When Carla announced her quest I was immediately intrigued. I had hired coaches before but Carla far exceeded my expectations. The first trait which struck me besides her obvious glowing smile and positive energy was how attentively she listened to responses to her carefully selected questions, formulating ideas for areas of concerns while seamlessly reframing self-defeating thoughts. I left that first call energized but somewhat naive about how much she would push me to be my best self. She is supportive, encouraging but tough. If you set a goal with her you better be serious because she will follow up and hold your feet to the fire. So come prepared to work.
So many areas of my life that have improved, not only did my diet and overall health improve but even my marriage, and finances improved."
T. Astaphan, Psy.D. Clinical psychologist / Mom-In-Chief

12 powerful transformational weeks.
When does this take place? This Quest is a hybrid 1-1 personalized coaching program with continuous enrollment.
Questers work through a 12 week planned journey but there are a couple break weeks for Questers to enjoy public holidays and take time for deeper reflection. It is a highly bespoke program.
Here are some more details of what we will cover together and the benefits you will experience.
"Carla, this quest has made all the difference! I now have an elevated consciousness about my body, soul, and spirit as a wonderful movable feast. Wherever I go, I can meditate. Wherever I go, I can exercise. Wherever I go, I can write my morning pages. Wherever I go, I take myself with me, and that includes my light, my LOVE, and my commitment to becoming, over and over again, the best version of myself.

Making the CORE Activators your default mode:
Being Core-Centric is about placing ‘anchors’ in your daily life; intellectually, emotionally, and physically, that can trigger you to get back to your CORE values and commitments. When faced with a challenge, fear or memory that threatens to destabilize you again, you can ask yourself, 'Am I @MyCORE? Centred, Optimized, Resilient & Engaged'.
Ask yourself these CORE questions…
Am I totally Centred? Am I approaching my life and wellbeing or situation with Clarity and Focus, am I internally motivated, and totally congruent with this mission or decision? On track with my Vision/Legacy.
Some trigger words may be: Clarity, Focus, Creativity, Compassion, Congruence, Caring
Am I Optimized at this moment, equipped to excel? Am I optimizing my movement, hydration, nutrition, mindset, rest, professional & recreational practices, processes and routines so I am equipped to face today or this situation? I am prepared for this?
Some trigger words may be: Strengthen, Amend, Revise, Tweak, Develop, Refine, Purify, Cultivate, Enhance, Improve, Hone
Am I being Resourceful? Have I gathered all the resources and support systems to be successful with this task or situation? Do I have what it takes to see it through to the end, if not, what else can I do and put together?
Some trigger words may be: Inclusive, Cooperative, Team-player, Leader, Grateful, Energized, Flexible, Responsive, Expansive
Am I Engaged? Am I being congruent with my values and personal commitments while being in tune with those around me who matter and who need my expertise, love and contribution? How am I showing up for my ‘Circle of Impact’?
Some trigger words may be: In-tune, Intentioned, Committed, Contracted, Empowered, Energized, Steady, Purposed
Generally, ask yourself, am I developing radical Resilience while being compassionate so that I am confident in my adaptability, self-reliance, and self-worth?
"This Quest sends me shopping in my soul."
Dr. H. Thomas-Lake - CEO HillTop Ethics
Why Do I want to support you?
Because, trust me, I feel you, I know you, I know right where you are, because I have been there too. I too have had to climb out of some very dark places, each time having to deepen my resolve, reorient my purpose with an entirely different plan. I had to reinstall my conviction and reclaim my power even my identity. You see most people just look at me and see a colourful, extroverted bad-ass, 'take-no-prisoners' Carla, but let me tell you, I have been through my piles of crap too. Too much to talk about here, but I have been in similar painful paralyzing situations like you. I have felt it, excruciating pain and injury, felt loss and lost, violated and exploited, betrayed, used, and discarded.
So trust me when I say, I got your back on this one... I really do.
I will give you my most recent story, you see, very much like we are today in this COVID-19 Pandemic time, just under 3 years ago, I got a rude awakening that brought back up all my past... I found myself living in circumstances that had me facing a very different uncertain reality that I hadn’t prepared for. Natural disaster, I experienced a devastating hurricane, one traumatic and emotional experience after another followed, loss and devastation of property and business, personal or professional challenges, fear, real fear for my physical and emotional being. Total and complete overwhelm, despair, and shame. It's like I was judging myself from every angle, while faking it, pretending like it was all just fine while drowning every lonely dusk and sleepless stormy night with alcohol in a house with no security or roof. I felt paralyzed, couldn't exercise, no dry space, I couldn't run, too scared to face the haunting landscapes (and I have been a runner for about 40 years)..., talk about being flooded with stress hormones and over-eating the wrong foods only to gain 11 kilos in 5 months? I was up to my heaviest adult weight, that I had only been at once before the day after I delivered my son. I couldn't think straight, angry, shocked, lost... basically, overall 'I was a f***ing hot mess'! (excuse the french, but I just don't know how else to say it).
But thank God, I got a break, took a step away the moment I found a window of time and glimmer of hope. I found my trusted 'toolboxes', shook myself hard, and realized that something just had to give! So I got some emotional support, established reliable professionals, hired a business coach, started taking care of myself and exercising, rolled out my Pilates Mat, started running and painting and writing poetry again... Hill running for 2 hours was like I had tasted heaven. The freedom, the sense of stamina, and inner strength, it all came back to me. I was back in business, teaching, and coaching again, and yes, within 4 months I had shed those 11 kilos!
The thing is, it was familiar, I had made similar journeys personally and with clients and friends quite a few times before. Whatever you are struggling with, the fact that you are also experienced, accomplished, and talented you do have what it takes to get back on top of your game, but even better! This time, the game you choose will be played on your terms… I know you know that too, so please, do not doubt yourself, your abilities, and your will. When you find that self-compassion and have someone to support you and help you uncover your truth and potential, it works. I know it I have done it.
To be honest, as I said before... it is downright paralyzing, I know it is...
and that my dear, is WHY I created this amazing Quest.
It's delicious, it's juicy, it's creative, it's physical, it's intellectual, it's spiritual, it will be emotional.
It's a hybrid of experiences that I know will take you to and through some divine spaces
you need and you will love.
So what do you say? Let's do this together?
"Thank you for sharing, yesterday, the challenges you’ve had to overcome. It makes us see even more what a phenomenal woman you are. I can see for sure, your focus on wellness and going into the body is the key..... to connecting with the innermost divinity."
T. Astaphan, Psy.D. Clinical psychologist / Mom-In-Chief
"I would recommend anyone to you - especially those who may lack confidence in their own ability
and are at a point that they really need a supportive push by a strong focused accomplished woman.
But if one is looking to have their ego stroked - you are NOT the coach for them."
