She is a 2004 graduate of the University of British Columbia's (UBC) Physiotherapy Program where she was the recipient of the Evert Boxtart Memorial Award in Physical Therapy.
As a young figure skater, and later as a rider in equestrian sport, Kamla began her appreciation of the science and art of movement at a young age.
While completing her first degree in UBC's Science Program, Kamla caught the fitness bug and became a group fitness instructor.
So began a 20 year involvement in the fitness industry in many capacities - Personal Trainer; Pilates Instructor; Health & Lifestyle Consultant; Fitness Columnist; Trainer of Fitness Leaders; Workshop Presenter; and Group Fitness Instructor.
Kamla opened her first Private Personal Training & Pilates Studio - Body Balance Studio - in 1999.
In 2001, Kamla wrote and published her book, "Smart Fat Loss - 12 Principles for a Lifetime of Health & Weight Control."
Since 2004, Kamla has worked as an orthopedic physiotherapist in the private practice sector. She is a past examiner for the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators and past Clinical Supervisor of Clinical Placements for UBC's Master of Physical Therapy Students.
For 10 years, Kamla worked in the Occupational Rehabilitation Setting which gave her a wealth of experience working with Sports Medicine Physicians and clients suffering with chronic pain.
In 2017, Kamla had the opportunity to work as a Quality Assurance Supervisor for WorkSafeBC's Health Care Programs. This allowed her to work closely with Physiotherapists, Hand Therapist's, Physicians, Occupational Rehabilitation Clinicians, and Massage Therapist's across B.C. Her experience at WorkSafeBC identified her love for inspiring other physiotherapists to have a powerful impact on both their clients and the profession. This lead Kamla to pursue her Master of Rehabilitation Degree through UBC.
In 2019, Kamla and her horse, Davina moved to the Netherlands to train with Olympic Silver Medalist, Coby van Baalen.
Kamla always had always intended to combine her unique experience as both an equestrian athlete and physiotherapist and as fate would have it, while in the Netherlands, Kamla met two physiotherapists who worked primarily with the equestrian population. There the seed was planted. Upon her return to Canada, now was the time to combine her two worlds and share her years of experience in both the equestrian and physiotherapy settings with the local equestrian community.
On a personal note, Kamla knows what it is like to be on the receiving end of the rehabilitative journey.
She has suffered a few major horse-related injuries herself, including a broken back (burst, compression & chance fracture of L2) which required emergency surgery; and ruptured the medial collateral ligament of her knee. Kamla had her share of minor injuries as well (fractured ribs, subluxation of a costochondral joint, to name a few...).
When the incentive is to get back on your horse (or ride through the injuries), there is no better motivation to develop an effective and efficient rehabilitation program!
These injuries all had major impact on the way Kamla practices as a physiotherapist today and all injuries are 100% healed thanks to a movement-based rehabilitation program.
