"Imagine a woman who honors the body of the Goddess in her changing body.
A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom.
Who refuses to use her life-energy disguising the changes in her body and life.
Imagine a woman who values the women in her life. A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.
Imagine yourself as this woman."
Patricia Lynn Reilly, 1995.

With a background in Theatre and Publishing and a lifelong exploration of moving her body in strong and dynamic ways, Louise brings a unique blend of skills that allows women to see the potential and strength within themselves.
A true empath Louise has been on a journey of self-discovery for many years which has now led her to create “Whispers of the Wild – a weekend for Women”. This Event is driven from a desire to produce a content and value-packed, accessible weekend for all Women wanting substance and seeking true connection with themselves and within a community.
Louise has always sought solace in the restorative powers of the natural world and its ability to ground, align and connect us back to ourselves. Her personal exploration of cold water therapy in mountain streams, winter oceans, waterfalls, and ice baths has had a deeply impactful influence on Louise and has driven her to share not only this natural, restorative power of water but so much more.
By combining her love of nature with her work leading a local, diverse community of Women on their own strength and fitness journeys with her “Strong Fit Mums” program, she has also led many women through a different kind of training with her distinctive “Wild Women” Fitness and Soul sessions.
Louise is committed to see Women experience connected and dynamic lives while they navigate the ever changing landscape of their female body.

Taryn cannot be with us for the April 2021 Event as she's due to have her 3rd child however, she will be contributing remotely to our intimate gathering. As a Women’s Physiotherapist specializing in Pre and Postnatal, Core and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy, Movement and Exercise plus Embodiment Therapy.
Quite simply, Taryn helps you to know and understand your body better, so that you can heal physically & emotionally from the inside out.
In showing you how, rather than telling you that you can't.
That when you are in deep connection with your body, your body will show you the way.
That you deserve to feel really, really good in your body.
Taryn’s therapeutic approach is a unique blend of holistic therapy. Think science meets soul!
Her study as a Women's Physiotherapist; experience as a Mother; passion and resilience as an athlete; daily dedication to movement and mindfulness, and her continued commitment to self-development, is what makes Taryn the therapist that she is.
Taryn’s passion is to help women to deeply connect with their physical body, to strengthen their mind-body connection and to understand their mind-body mindset so that they can feel at home in their bodies.
She says “To me, there is nothing better than witnessing a woman accessing her own's body's wisdom - however that may look for her.”

Fiona is a dedicated yoga student of more than 20 years. Having experienced what a yoga practice can offer in helping herself and others through life’s ups and downs, and wanting to share this gift with others, she embarked on yoga teacher training.
Fiona is now a registered Iyengar Yoga teacher trainee, training under a Senior teacher from Ballarat. Bringing her background as a Physiotherapist to her skills as a yoga teacher Fiona is able to provide you with a safe introduction to yoga or assist you with developing your practice.
More than anything Fiona hopes that on the weekend you catch a glimpse of the less tangible benefits of yoga; while yoga is often perceived to be all about the physical body it is in fact for the mind. Fiona first met Louise when their oldest children were in kinder together and is excited to contribute to the Whispers Weekend.
"If you can stand on your mat for yoga and you have available at least fifteen minutes, you truly are a lucky person. That alone is a priceless gift and a tool to improve your life, which not many have. With these thoughts have a sense of gratitude for what is available to you. Get to practice." - BKS Iyengar
Meghann is a mother, coach, writer and creator with over a decade’s experience. She works intuitively with clients to help them do the DEEP WORK that needs to be done for true authenticity and joy to flourish.
A huge piece of her work is unpacking and examining the powerful role that storytelling plays in our lives.
As a transformation Coach, Meghann leads participants through a process of identifying parts of the story they’re telling themselves (how does it shape their current reality?), taking a good, hard, honest look at the roles they’re playing (victim, hero, villain?) and how they can rewrite the script to empower and embolden themselves moving forward.
“What! You too? I thought I was the only one” kinda sums up the moment when a friendship was born between Meghann and Louise – a friendship that has forged something special for the Women of Whispers to experience!
