Turning Point

The turning point for Kamala was at age 26, when Kamala broke her foot and ended her career as a professional dancer. That was the defining moment and the blessing which brought her to what she does today. Over 40 years, Kamala devoted herself to learning everything she could to support athletes to navigate the professional track–including 18 years extensive studies in India.

There is an elephant in the room. In a materialistic world, athletes are looking for materialistic solutions to stay on top and manage the stress. Unfortunately, these short cut drugs, whatever they may be and however they are ingested, whether to stay on top or to manage stress and pain…in the long run, this approach is not working for athletes.


As a mom who cares deeply about the well being of athletes and having also been down the track of professional performance, Kamala Nellen is passionate to bring Pro and Elite Youth Athletes cutting edge tools to successfully navigate professional sports. The Art and Science of Working IN for Champion Sports Performance™ is a 2 week program that is comprised of three modules: physical, mental and self-empowerment tools. These tools not only lead to top sports performance, they also create greater balance and greater resilience. Kamala’s goal is for athletes to be well-equipped and empowered. In this way, athletes can focus on the joy of performance!
