Born on the West Coast of Australia, Jenna found herself enjoying the outdoors, sun and sport from a very young age. After hitting ‘burn out’ in her previous career as a senior video producer, she transitioned into the health and wellness space and followed her love for mind-body + soul connection. Deep diving into how to create a more balanced ‘life’ she found herself teaching and running retreats in Australia, Bali and Sri Lanka before deciding to base at Talalla. She finds the fun and enjoyment in self-development, taking a very open approach based on learning, allowing and sharing experiences. She believes getaways can be the best time to reconnect and reboot with the self (and others too!)

Mandy grew up in country Tasmania where she has developed her strong connection and love of nature.
Growing up Mandy, like many women, had low self confidence and poor body image. After University she was propelled to compete in female body sculpting. At the time she didn’t realise that this was just an excuse and a way for her to change her body that she thought “wasn’t good enough”. This led her to change her career to personal training and nutrition guidance.
A near death experience and total burn out (not treating her body, mind and soul with the love it deserves) led Mandy to her own path of personal and spiritual discovery and healing. She now uses her skills and knowledge to guide other women to come back to a place of self love and inner peace through personalised coaching, workshops and retreats.
FIND HER AT TALALLA:
In the water practising her surfing or simply enjoying nature, teaching yoga and pilates, laughing a lot and writing her book!
