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!)

FIND HER AT TALALLA:

Getting salty in the surf, creating dance moves with the staff, downward dogging in the shalas or boxing on the beach.

Growing up in country Victoria, competing in Basketball, Tennis and Gymnastics, Lauren’s love for Pilates came when she moved to Melbourne to start a career in TV, as a way to release stress in a demanding profession.

A health scare in 2010 prompted Lauren to rethink her lifespan and start prioritising her health. In 2011 she took up studio pilates as part of her rehab from brain surgery. Talalla Retreat is a perfect fit for Lauren, having worked as an instructor and wellness facilitator at Thailand’s leading detox retreat Phuket Cleanse.

Growing up in a very sporty family, Jess has always loved keeping fit and being active.

After realizing that fitness was more than just something she enjoyed doing in her spare time, she chose to turn this passion into a career.

Jess’s approach to fitness and wellbeing comes not only from the physically but also from the mental side, as she is a strong believer that ‘the body achieves what the mind believes’.

Jess loves travelling to new places and meeting new people and learning as much from these experiences as possible.

FIND HER AT TALALLA:

In the studio or the ocean. If she can’t be found it’s because she’s off on an adventure somewhere.
