Freedomspace focuses on overall well-being by providing information, services, and tools to improve life - physically, mentally, and spiritually. We believe that a more holistic approach to a healthy life is key, and aim to help individuals find options that are realistic and sustainable.

How Freedomspace started

Freedomspace was founded in 2013 by Tooshay LaTasha Bonilla-Padilla after going through a life-altering experience. Drug mulled in Bangkok Thailand at the young age of 20 yrs old and giving birth to her firstborn child there, Tooshay was given a death sentence later reduced to life and was required to stay in Thailand's worst female prison for 9 yrs. It was during this challenging time that she developed ways of coping and helping others all centered on Fitness, Dance and Art. 

Prior to her tragedy, Tooshay's life centered around these forms of expression, it was natural for her to use them as a way to make it through her most difficult life challenge. She was released from prison in 2003, and went on to obtain her Master's Degree in Health Education and is currently pursuing her Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Health Education & Promotion. She combines her experience, talents, and education with her passions in order to influence positive health behavior in others and empower them to live well. 


Freedomspace is a call to be in harmony with one's authentic self and make choices that lead to sustainable well-being.
