My name is Kayla Robertson and I'm a producer, qualified yoga teacher, recovering perfectionist and the host of All Being Well.
I’m also a wellness enthusiast turned real wellbeing expert, after delving head first into the expensive and time-consuming world of wellness to improve my quality of life.
For many years I struggled with depression and severe anxiety, and if you asked me how I felt back then I would have said "numb". Or perhaps "shame". Or "nervous self-loathing".
Today that's not the case. I'm happy. I laugh a lot (in fact, I’m known for it). Most days I feel well.
I’m grateful for the self-care practices and lifestyle changes that I made - some major, some minor - that focused on my personal wellbeing and allowed me to reach this point. I discovered yoga, meditation and mindfulness (and a good therapist) and personal wellbeing practices and their ability to heal.
However it isn’t simple - with soaring rates of mental illness we’re seeing the explosive growth of the wellness industry - and untried, untested and unproven methods alongside it. As products like activated charcoal and crystal-infused drink bottles fly off the shelves, it’s difficult to navigate myth from medicine, in this $3.7 trillion dollar market.
I know that my search for wellness is not unique. Collectively we share feelings of anxiety, stress and overwhelm, and feelings of “is this really it” or “should I be doing more” or “is this enough”. I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone to feeling this way. So many of us do. Privately. Secretly. Deep within our hearts.
In response to this, I’m determined to research the tried and tested practices that can support our wellbeing - tangibly, realistically, sustainably - that allow us to flourish as human beings. This space has been lovingly created (and curated) to translate this information to you - and our beautiful community of listeners here at All Being Well - to introduce you to the tools you need to flourish.
In 2019 I’m kicking this up a notch and going all in. I’ll be launching The Wellbeing Project that dedicates 12 months to diving head-first into the world of lasting wellness - creating the New Year’s Resolution that together we’ll actually keep.
It won’t be focused on diets or day-dreams or short-term goals that are forgotten by March, but on developing real wellness habits that allow us to create mindful and meaningful lives. Together we’ll explore yoga and meditation, focusing on our purpose, self-care, goal setting and navigating wellness fact from fiction.
This space is my invitation for you to join me, and the wonderful All Being Well community, in prioritising real wellbeing.
Come and join us to thrive.
