WELL HABIT WORLD TEAM
Founder of WELL HABIT WORLD,
Eva is at the heart of WELL HABIT WORLD. She’s a social entrepreneur who devotes her time and energy to developing the WELL HABIT WORLD. vision.
Her Wellness journey started in 1984, as a frustrated physiotherapist treating entirely preventable injuries in the workplace. She saw how quickly health improved and injury rates declined when bad work habits were identified early. Working with wellness principles to improve body, mind and connection directly transformed the work culture and the personal lives of these individuals. Eva founded Wellschool as a response to this.
She’s a qualified physiotherapist, teacher, environmental scientist, filmmaker and radio producer.
As well as this Eva lectures at RMIT University’s School of Health Sciences Master of Wellness program. She’s a Health Coach with Diabetes Victoria on the Life Program. She has been a fellow with the Centre for Sustainability Leadership, the School of Social Entrepreneurs and The Difference Incubator ‘Two Feet’ social business program.

Ethical Nomad Volunteers
Rather than our team just working together, we have also have a team of volunteers that live together.
WELL HABIT WORLD is run from a co-living home in Melbourne, Australia where we do more than just talk wellness, we get to test out our principles every moment of every day.
Our community attracts volunteers from all corners of our beautiful planet, and also includes our Airbnb ‘benefactors’ who pay for the joy of living within a wellness social enterprise experiment!
We support and peer coach each other towards wellness in the same way our curriculum would. We also invite colleagues to come and work in our Co-living work community.
Thank you to the many international volunteers whose curiosity, enthusiasm and awesome talent have built and designed our websites, as well as edited and written for our books and curriculum.
