A year ago yesterday, my dad died from heart attack.

.

Yesterday I chose to spend the day by going to a 5 hours dance, Ecstatic Soul session.
.
I created the altar which was about prayer and intention. It was about showing up and courage. It was about how unstoppable you are when you focus on what you want to create and how playing small doesn’t serve anyone. It was about how creation happens in cycles just like nature, blooming then letting go, letting go of old version to become the new version who will receive the vision.
.
There were quotes on the altar, here’s one of them that I love👇🏼 You can swipe to read them all.
.
“You’re never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true.” - Richard Bach
.
It also had Turkish delight to be eaten during or after the dance 😍
.
.
These 5 hours dance sessions have been so deep and healing every time, this one was particularly deep.
.
I felt what it feels like to hold your prayer and let go of it, let go of how you want it to look like and surrender to it.
.
I felt my dad’s energy on the dancefloor and danced with him. I thanked all the men in my life and all the lessons I learnt through their presence.
.
I felt and moved through heartbreak. It is very freeing when you allow yourself to feel an emotion without making it mean something about you.
.
I looked up at the church and remembered the dances I had there in the last 3 years. Friends I met on the dancefloor, connections I made, frustrations I had, love I shared, joys I felt and how I surrendered and let go again and again on that dancefloor. Versions of me died on that carpet and versions of me emerged. I’m so grateful for that church ❤️
.
“You will always be fine.” is what I heard when I looked up. It was a deep knowing and certainty. “You’ve come far.” I forget how far I came.
.
There was a moment where I looked at 5 Rhythms with Ajay Rajani & Nikki Ashley, feeling so incredibly grateful for them to having created this sacred space of remembering who we are, connecting to what matters to us and choosing love ❤️ Thank you so much for everything you both are and everything you give so generously 🙏🏼
.
We had food together after and it was so nourishing to sit on the grass and talk, listen, connect for hours.
.
Thank you everyone who was on the dancefloor 😍
.
I love you 💛
.

So happy to have given a women’s breathwork & movement journey last night 😍

.

Here is some of the feedback 👇🏼

.

.
✨ “It was an amazing experience, nothing like I’ve ever experienced before. It really allows you to be and to feel. I think it is something that everyone should try.”
.
✨ “Amazing way to get out of the mind and into the body. Beautifully held space. More please.”
.
✨ “Natural way of releasing emotions that are holding me back and great way to connect with my inner self.”
.
.

This space is becoming one of my favourite spaces in London to give workshops 😍

.

Thank you Amanda Dutson for filming me after the workshop 😘

✨ FEEL IT TO RELEASE IT ✨

Thursday morning, I woke up with bit of sadness. I did my usual morning journaling, meditating and working out.

.

Then I sat down to work. Sadness was still there. Whenever this happens now I learnt to allow it. If I don’t, it builds up and I feel numb overall. I had two choices:
.
✨ Repress it and feel flat all day
OR
✨ Allow myself to feel it fully and let it move through me
.
I also had stuff to do. A lot is happening and growing in a beautiful momentum in my business at the moment. Sitting down and feeling wasn’t convenient.
.
I have a grief playlist I put on and cry whenever I feel even a tingling feeling of grief coming up. I put it on, I made sounds, I cried, I punched pillows, I shouted into pillows, I shook it all off. After 5 minutes of that, I was laughing. By the end of the first song, nearly always, I’m free of the grief, feeling even better than before.
.
That’s all my body and emotions needed, 5 minutes space to feel.. Then I felt ready to rock the day. I had two meetings, beautiful connections lining up, amazing support coming my way and dancing in the evening.
.
.
When you move & breathe, you feel more. Anything you didn’t allow yourself to feel in the past comes up, especially in breathwork. As you allow the emotions to move through you, you feel lighter, freer and more alive, connected to your divinity ✨
.
Next week’s women’s breathwork & movement journey is all about this. A safe and loving space where you can move through your emotions, release, let go and surrender ❤️
.
There are LIMITED SPACES left. I’d love to see you there. I dance with you too and then guide you through a breathwork journey 😍

Dancing with the sunset 🌅

Two dances I went to this week have been beautiful ✨

.

I learn so much through dancing, with myself and with others. Especially with others, I see where I’m aloof, where I’m needy, where I’m people pleasing, where I’m in my head, where I’m not clear with my boundaries. It reflects instantly all around me.
.
I notice and bring my energy back to myself. I give myself what I want to receive from others in my sovereignty and in my power. In that place, I know I’m safe because I can hold myself. Its very loving, freeing and empowering.
.
I partner up with myself, my inner masculine and feminine dance together. I feel whole and complete. I see everyone on the dancefloor as whole and complete, all unique and beautiful in their own way.
.
I love you 💛

💛 NEW WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT 💛

Few weeks ago, when Amanda Dutson and I held a shamanic yoga & breathwork journey, it happened to be all women. It was very sacred and beautiful ✨

.

By the end of it, it was obvious to me to start holding women’s only breathwork journeys. .
Sooo here it is ...
.
... women’s breathwork & movement journey 😍
.
.
Bit like Goddess Circle 2.0 😂 Similar in a way but deeper and a bigger group. I won’t hold Goddess Circles anymore. I changed and expanded a lot since starting them. So it feels true to let them go and start this. You can only take others as far as you've gone yourself ❤️
.
The venue is gorgeous loft with big windows 🙌🏼
.
It will be 12 WOMEN ONLY 🔥

I’ve heard from few women that they feel safer around women when doing breathwork to let go and surrender. If this is you, this workshop is for you 🤗
.
It’s also super healing to see and to be seen as equals amongst women and to go deep into a journey teaching one another ❤️
.
I’m super excited for this! See you there 😍
.
I love you 💛

Dancing with the ☀️ and 🌳 today

I started reading Sweat Your Prayers: Movement as Spiritual Practice by Gabrielle Roth, the creator of #5rhythms 🔥

.

I’m 5 pages in and am already crying.
.
.
✨ “I danced till I disappeared inside the dance, till there was nothing left of me but the rhythms of my breath. I entered another universe, shifted into a new dimension in which there were no boundaries; everything was energy and I was just a particle riding the universal wave.”
.
✨ “I feel my soul in my body when I dance, when I make love, and most times in between. I know that to reach the light we first have to travel into the heart of darkness. After all, isn’t light created out of darkness?”
.
✨ “I believe we each hold a spark of original light of creation within us. I’ve seen it light up people’s faces and bodies when they dance. In a thousand ways it has been revealed to me that God is the dance and we need only to disappear into the dance to liberate the sexual, creative and sacred aspects of the soul.”
.
.
I go to the Sweaty Thursdays for 5rhythms, 7pm at St Peter’s Church every Thursday. You just turn up, no need to know how to dance. The dances in the church will continue until the end of October. Come join before then, let’s dance together 🙏🏼
.
💛💛💛

I was going to go to the forest to dance and film.

I saw the weather and thought, “Nah, I’ll dance in my flat instead.” 😃

.

Last night, I randomly thought of the movie Les Choristes. I haven’t thought about it in years. I love this movie. It’s a story of some naughty French kids loving singing in a choir being taught by an incredible heartfelt teacher who really believes in them. 

.

My dad loved the movie and I remember him listening and humming to the soundtrack. I put the soundtrack on. Last time I listened to it, I was with him. I allowed myself to miss my dad and had a good wail to it. Then few other losses came to me like a trail following one another. I followed them and cried my eyes out.
.
15 minutes later, I was laughing. I love seeing over and over again how grief is so close to joy. They’re like sisters. You think they’re the opposite but they’re so similar 😊 When you go into one of them fully, you circle back to the other one.
.
I’m grateful I can see how every moment is passing. I still hold on and try to keep the highs sometimes. I know it will go, its natural for it to transforms into something else so I make a video of me talking to myself reminding of this time, I journal about it and I enjoy it while its there. Then when the lows come I know that will go too, so I don’t get too caught up in it.
.
I surrender to it all ✨
.
I love you 💛

I had a such a beautiful, restful and soft day today in nature 🍃

It was so needed after holding 2 breathwork journeys since Friday and going to a big dance 🔥

.

I feel like my Soul has grown a little bit more this week 🙏🏼

.

Take time out to just BE. Whether its taking a bath, walking in nature barefoot, floating, laying in the sun. Whatever nourishes your heart. There are always things to do, but there’s always time to rest in the awe of this moment ✨
.
I still get a little nervous filming myself dancing and playing around in the forest but I’m getting better at smiling at people walking by smiling back at me 🤗
.
I love you 💛
