Strong mind, healthy body, nourished spirit
The most precious resources we have as women are our mental and physical health. At Travel Play Live we realise each of us are individuals, with different needs, desires and goals for our health & wellness. To live a healthy & active life , we believe you do not need to conform to the carbon copy blueprint of what healthy means to the world, but to live YOUR best life. We will help you discover what being empowered, healthy and strong means for you.
Our goal here is to provide a place where any woman who wants to live an active and adventurous life, no matter where their health and fitness level is in at this point in time, can be assisted with relevant and up to date wellness and training information.
A place where you understand that loving, enjoying and looking after your body has nothing to do with ego, and everything to do with health, gratitude, awareness and intelligence.

It’s no secret that I am passionate about promoting the journeys and stories of adventurous women. It is indisputable that we draw inspiration from the endeavours of others, and this inspiration is often the catalyst for growth and goal setting in our own lives. Recently, however, I can’t help but notice a tendency within myself and others to leap into adventures that were perhaps someone else’s dream, not our own.
