Hello, I’m Macala. I teach women to quiet their minds and calm their anxiety so that they can become present and enjoy their lives.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Like many women, probably like you, I went to college, started off in a professional career, and
eventually started my own company. In 15 years, I built something that most women would be proud of. But in 2017, what I built felt hollow. What used to fill me up, now left me with a feeling empty.
More often than not, I didn’t even have the energy to get out of bed. I was agitated, anxious, and often fell victim to the conversations running in my head. And then, I had an Elizabeth Gilbert Eat, Pray, Love moment. In the book, she wrote:
Hadn’t I wanted this? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life. So why didn’t I see myself in any of it? The only thing more impossible than staying was leaving.
To teach women how to manage stress and anxiety so that they can overcome burnout and feeling overwhelmed, while also helping them develop the ability to live in the present moment.
Where It took me
I realized that how I was living and working didn’t align with the woman I had become. And I knew I couldn’t stay like this. I had re-create my life to fit who I had become – afterall, my spiritual health and inner well-being depended on it. I began soul searching to find what was missing, and being able to fix what was wrong. After years of quiet study and self-guided introspection. In that, I fell in love with breathwork and other science (and soul) backed mindfulness practices.
I Wanted to Make Wellness More Inclusive For Women
And in my learning, I kept finding that many practices were time-intensive, trend-driven, or predominantly marketed towards young, white women who could afford expensive wellness culture products and services.
I saw the barrier to entry and decided to do something about it. I decided to create my own version of inclusive wellness, that focused on women of color, who were also over 40, and didn’t have time to go sit on a mountain.
Let’s Create Wellness That Works
Over the course of three years, I learned to use them to quiet my mind, and to thoughtfully look at everything. And before I think I consciously realized it, the anxiety stopped, the racing thoughts stopped, and the voices in my head went silent. The decompression and space it allowed was beautiful.
And now, I help other women achieve this. So if you’re a woman of color, over the age of 40, who’s stressed, tired, overwhelmed, and doesn't know how to stop, I invite you to explore and develop a wellness practice with me. It’ll be dirty and gritty, but it will be done with grace and it will be real.
The ability to enjoy the present moment with nothing running through your head? I can show you how to accomplish it.
