If you’re like us, the holidays are over and the children are heading back to school, and life is settling back into a routine…we’d like to say a huge welcome back!! Kalila co-founders Kathy and Claire have been busy with their families in Canada and the UK as well as fitting in a few summer […]

Are you choosing the right exercise for your goal?

Just been to the gym and lifted weights for 30 minutes? Or perhaps running is your thing and you’re about to pound the pavement. Prefer to sweat in a crowd at your local zumba class or love the solitude of body strengthening pilates. Are you a sunrise yogi or a sun-down HIIT girl? Whatever you […]

It was a glorious 10-day trip to my hometown but, like most trips home, it involved catch-up dinners, catch-up drinks and, as I was helping my friend prepare for her wedding, it also involved bachelorette parties, pre-wedding decorating events and the […]
