Meet Carla

It all started with me wanting to be an actor and this led me to leave home at 18 and travel overseas where I lived and partied as a backpacker/actor for three and a half years, my fun yet dangerous adventures had led me through 49 countries experiencing what this world really offers.

When I landed back in Australia for the first time in a long time, I was so lost, I was just moving through the motions –totally drowning in the daily grind? And on the inside, I knew I had more to give. This led me into opening and running two successful business an award-winning franchise, Anytime Fitness which I built from the ground up, and I foundered Happy Hot Yoga again growing from scratch (which believe me has taught me so much).

But again, I didn’t realise but I was caught in this treadmill of life, the endless daily grind doing what needed to be done and it was spirituality that saved me. I had a huge shift that reminded me of what life really is and what true happiness is all about.

The day I chose true happiness and joy was the day I became a master of my own life and believe me I’ve learned a lot along the way. And I’m still learning (and yes, I still get it wrong many times – I am human).

Help Carla Give Back

My mission is to help remind and show others  that happiness is a conscious choice and we all can be find joy no matter what we are going through.

Let’s get one thing straight - we all deserve to be happy!

I love sharing all of it here with you, in my presentations at events, on my podcast, in my book or at a yoga class or on retreat.

In my downtime if I am not travelling you will find me reading in the sun with a coffee and my puppy Shazza.

It is my dream that every human being lives a happy and joyful life and finds moments to laugh and smile in amongst all the ups and downs of this journey we call life.
