“Whatever you put around yourself, you will be the mirror of it. Surround yourself with things (and people) you love.” 

We are so excited to share our oh-so-amazing team with you. At the beginning of 2019, Morgan decided she didn’t want to go it alone anymore, that she wanted to create a posse of awe-inspiring women who will take Live It Active’s retreats to the next level. Come meet these awesome folks…

Meet Morgan

Chief Wellness Officer

LIA-Morgan-11Live It Active is owned and operated by Morgan Craig-Broadwith, a health and wellness specialist with a genuine passion for helping individuals become gritty badasses while ensuring they remain compassionate to themselves along the way (we can’t soldier on if we aren’t well, right?).

Her personal and professional journey compelled her to develop the Rejuvenation Retreat because she believes we need and crave greater connection to our work, our family, our community and our selves. She believe writing a Personal Manifesto is a key ingredient to leading a wholehearted life: a life of vulnerability, openness and courage.

Morgan’s background is psychology and exercise physiology, with a specific focus on psychological health. Throughout her career thus far, she has developed and implemented countless workplace psychological and physical health programs, initiatives and education sessions / workshops. She loves challenging the status quo, asking the big questions and incorporating the odd high kick into her presentations.

Morgan lives in Calgary, Alberta, with her husband, daughter and son. She received her M.Sc., Exercise Physiology and B.A. (Hons.), Psychology from Queen’s University. In addition to operating Live It Active, she works full-time in oil and gas leading the diversity and inclusion portfolio. As an Albertan from Ontario, Morgan spends as much time in the mountains as possible – hiking, meditating and exploring the great beyond.

Meet Caroline

Master Retreat Guide 

_JMH9540I’m so excited to welcome Caroline to the team. Our paths collided many years ago and as soon as I met Caroline, I knew she was special as heck. She’s the most calm, cool, collected woman I’ve ever met and I know this strength and energy will bring so much to our retreats. As a former equestrian and current nature-lover, Caroline’s deep connection to the natural world will undoubtedly strengthen our retreats and help take Live It Active to the next level.

For many years, Caroline watched Live It Active and was moved by the topics, the passion and opportunity to help individuals find and live their genuine self. She was flattered when asked to be a part of the team, and embraced the chance to influence how people reveal their grit and grace. For her, Live It Active demonstrated a perspective that we need to actively lead our lives – that we have a choice about prioritizing what is important to us; we have choice how we respond to our circumstances; and finally, we are active leaders in creating our best life.

Professionally and personally, Caroline has always enjoyed facilitating different human interactions. She believes progress is made through recognition of our unique starting points, styles and realities, and how awareness of our unique and others’ unique perspectives make us stronger. She loves the insights brought by group dialogue, deep one-on-one conversation, and allowing the time and space for deliberate reflection. She brings a calming influence and strives to build meaningful connections with and between participants.

Caroline lives in Calgary, Alberta with her husband, two young children and dog. She has her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Calgary and work full-time in Human Resources in the Oil and Gas Industry. She was born and raised in Calgary, and while she loves to travel, she’s a truly homebody for everything this beautiful province has to offer. She’s fortunate for so many role role models in her family and circles of friends – those that actively live their best life and embody grit and grace. 

Meet Tamie

Yoga Guru

Our paths collided at a previous employer – we were both active participants at the company’s wellness centre (yes, we were spoiled) and became fast friends over wine. Tamie has taught yoga (of all types) at all my Alberta retreats and her presence, participation and power is an essential ingredient to the day. I’m so glad she’s become our resident Yoga Guru.

Tamie discovered yoga in her early twenties and has been practicing ever since. There have been times in her life when she has deviated off the yogic path to pursue a trending fitness craze, but time and time again she’s returned to her mat to breath, ground and centre herself.

Leaving the corporate world in 2016, Tamie decided to take a leap of faith and begin her training. She completed her Yoga Alliance certified 200 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) training with Yoga Works based in California, as well as Yin teacher training with Stephanie Staniforth and feels, without a doubt, she is now on her life’s path; her soul’s journey. More recently, Tamie completed her Yoga Nidra training with Tanis Fishman, based in Calgary, Alberta. 

In her spare time (when she is not playing with or driving her daughter to her various activities) you can find Tamie running the Calgary paths or with her nose in a book; she is hungry to learn. As Aristotle once said “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.”

As a yoga teacher, Tamie guides and shares her passion and knowledge of yoga with her students, but her students teach her so much. After rejoining the corporate world in 2018 and then joining the Live It Active team in 2019, Tamie continues to strive for balance, a somewhat unattainable, but important life-long goal. How lucky we are to have her be a part of our team.
