Meet Our Team

Dr Melody

Guest Facilitator

Since 2015, God has taken my background as a Doctor of Physical Therapy, combined with my coaching and mentoring skills as a Health & Life Coach, and led me to bring the message of health and wholeness in mind, body and spirit, by the power of Jesus Christ.

The purpose of Fit+Faith International is to empower and equip God’s Daughters in growing in their health, faith and life to blossom into who He created them to be.


Retreat Host

Transparent, warm, efficient, and friendly, Lauren enjoys planning and hosting each retreat to ensure the needs of all participants are catered to, and that the event delivers the kind of soul-stirring, restorative experience which she herself originally sought to find.

Lauren Harkness created Rise Retreats out of her passion for wellness of body and mind and a desire to create intentional time away for women to connect with God and themselves through community and mindfulness.

Le Pavoux

Fitness Instructor

Evelyn is known for her calming and centring teaching style and encourages her students to create stillness in their own hearts and minds in order to connect and reconnect to their faith or calling. “I find that it is when I am still, and the constant dialogue in my mind is put to the side, that is when God is most clear.”

Evelyn Le Pavoux is a RYT 500 qualified and experienced Yoga and Meditation Teacher based in Sydney.
