Me and my Journey…
Hello and welcome, my name is Tenille Samuelson and I am the heart and soul of ‘A Woman’s Wellness’.
Who am I? I am a mother, a wife, an instructor, an educator, a business owner, a cook, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and the kind of person who seeks the best in others and makes the most out of life. As women we are so much, do some much, can be so much. This is why we need to live a healthy life and look after ourselves. That’s how my passion in working in health and fitness has evolved… Through my experiences in trying to find balance, trying to fall pregnant, over coming injury, fatigue and stress. In helping clients get the most from life and feeling the best they possibly can.
My fitness and health career started at 17 years of age when I completed my first Pilates Course. Pilates was my choice of exercise as it helped support me through my dance career as a teenager while suffering from lower back and knee issues. Over the next few years I furthered my studies in Pilates doing everything from floor, Reformer, pregnancy, athletic conditioning and Injuries and Special needs training. At 21 years old, I graduated from Griffith University with a Diploma in Business, Event Management and Marketing and started my first Pilates studio, Pilates Elements. I devoted everything to my business and it grew quickly and an amazing community was created. I poured all my efforts and energy in to the studio and was so passionate in learning about the body and all areas of holistic health. I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing specialists in many fields from naturopathy, to acupuncture to physiotherapy to midwifery to Essential Oils. As with any business we have our ups and downs, and owning a health and fitness studio is a challenging industry to work in. You give, give, give and work odd hours and put so much energy in to others. As much as I loved what I did it took a toll on my health and body, as I started doing less for me and more for others. When my husband and I decided to start a family it was then that I realised how depleted my body was, how much I stopped caring for me and my health and the balance in life. I was only 26 years old. How lucky I am to be aware of my neglect and be surrounded by people who supported me in nurturing myself once again. It took a year of meditation, learning how to rest, practicing more yoga (especially Restorative Yoga), Pilates, Acupuncture and Chiropractic work to get my body back to good health and ready to conceive a baby. From this personal experience and seeing so many others go through the same my next business journey evolved….
After my experience through trying to conceive my now 2-year-old daughter Maeve (born September, 2014), I knew I wanted to specialise further in creating a business that supported a holistic approach for women. During this time I was fortunate enough to be surrounded and connect to some amazing therapists, specialists and teachers who guided me with the safest, healthiest and most natural ways to conceive. Through my experience I knew I had to share it with others and to educate that ‘preparation for fertility’ is the most important part when trying to conceive a baby. Also as it is an emotional rollercoaster for most women, positive thinking and working with a therapist who you trust and feel comfortable with is imperative. In 2015, I decided to further my studies in Yoga with Bliss Baby Yoga studying areas in Yoga for Women’s health (pregnancy, menstrual cycle, fertility, menopause, restorative Yoga).
It is with my collaborated teachings in Yoga and Pilates and the many holistic therapists I have learnt from over 10 years that ‘A Women’s Wellness’ was created. I hope our website can offer you an abundance of holistic and healthy information and techniques to help support you throughout your different stages as a women.
In Health & Happiness
