 Paula Janse van Rensburg

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared
to what lies within us
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)

Founder and director of the Dial-a-Picnic group, Yoom Wellness and Business Women Collective, a mompreneur with a passion to help others live their best lives!

She is an eternal optimist filled with so much hope, even in the most trying times. Life has not always been easy but it sure has been magical in every sense. From a very young age she served as the emotional and spiritual anchor for her family, learning to support and guide people through very traumatic and challenging situations.

Paula has inspired many staff during her years in corporate and as the franchisor for Dial-a-Picnic South Africa she has supported many budding female entrepreneurs in launching their own businesses and achieving success.

Mindfulness and meditation has formed part of her daily practice and inspiration for the last 16 years.

With a passion for mindfulness and wellness her focus areas are breakthrough coaching, mindfulness in corporate and women in business.

“My goal is to move people from despair and being stuck to being liberated, free and happy!”

Leigh Carnell

Childhood scars, failed relationship, the stress and pressure of the workplace, climbing the corporate ladder and even the challenges of day to day life, led Leigh on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. Through this journey, she discovered that all she could change was herself and that changes everything.

Over the past 10 years Leigh has explored many aspects of self-development and healing and discovered that the common thread in her life and the lives of family, friends and clients is our limiting beliefs. Many of which stem from our childhood through negative speech, often resulting in the lack of self-confidence and belief in ourselves. This holds us back from being the best version of ourselves and living our best life.

Leigh is a Certified Soul Coach®, PSYCH-K Facilitator, Reiki Practitioner and meditation guide. She takes an integrated holistic approach in her coaching and healing through establishing a Mind, Body and Soul connection.  She works with adults and children to discover the beauty, magic, passion and potential in their lives.

Every day is a new day and a new opportunity for you to decide how you want to show up. An opportunity for you to embrace all that you are and all that you can be, divinely guided by Grace and Love.

If you’re ready to begin that Journey into yourself, then let’s take your Soul on a Journey and discover the magic that lies within…

Our deepest fear in not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are we not to be?
Marianne Williamson

Elana Edwards

“You are what you believe and if you do not believe in yourself then who will?”

As a business owner and entrepreneur for the last 20 years, Elana Edwards witnessed the effect that a lack of self-belief, self-confidence and feelings of unworthiness can have on individuals.

In the past 20 years she has helped many women acquire much needed skills to improve their quality of life and to fulfil their dreams, be it professional or personal.

Not only is Elana founder and owner of Riverside College but she is also a parenting coach as well as a certified Soul Coach and PSYCH-K facilitator.

As the mother of two, Elana realised early on what the challenges were for individuals and parents who want to live their dream whilst making a contribution to their community and it was for this reason that she chose to become the guiding light for those who also want to make their dreams a reality.

Apart from assisting adults to overcome their challenges and to become the best version of themselves, Elana also works with children – offering a safe space of healing and transformation for children who struggle to perform academically or integrate socially.

“Once you have reignited your light, your passion and your purpose, everything just comes together and nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams.”
