Leah Barthel

Leah joins the TWALK team as a Life and Wellbeing Strategist to share her experiences with others who may be dealing with the challenges life can throw you. 

Following a series of life events, Leah made a choice to create the reality she wished to see, and is driven to inspire and motivate others to realise their dreams and capabilities. 

To alleviate the pain she was experiencing from a series of tragic life events, Leah found Yoga which lead her to the path she is now on. In addition, Leah was then made redundant. Two weeks after that she had written her book, “A Gift Before I Go”.  She then asked herself “If I could pick any job in the world what would it be?”. The outcome was very clear. She wanted to be an Author, Public Speaker, Advocate for Organ Donation & Grief, Yoga & Meditation Teacher and most importantly an awesome Mum.
