dance

I took this few weeks ago after the last Goddess Circle I held.

Goddess Circle is a workshop for women I created where it’s a loving and safe space you get to connect with your femininity, your body and your wisdom. It’s a space where you can soften, allow, let go and surrender ❤️ We dance, meditate and do breathwork together.

.

I held them at Buddha on a Bicycle in Covent Garden every month for 2 years for 6 women only. Now, I’m taking them to another venue with more space for around 10-12 women 😍🎉
.
.
Here are some feedback from the previous ones👇🏼
.
✨ “I have been to places and levels of emotions I have not been to before. You offered a safe and loving environment, so it felt secure to release.”
.
✨ “It didn’t necessarily turned out the way I thought it would, but it gave me exactly what I needed!”
.
✨”Allow yourself to let go and relax into it! Trust that you are held in a safe space.”
.
.
The next one:
30th May Thursday // 7-10pm
Unmind Space, Hackney
£25
.
Earlybird ends 22nd of May, Wednesday. You can book your place through the link below ✨

.
I’d love to see you there 😍
.
I love you 💛
.
.
(Also can someone tell me if there’s a way to record and play music on my phone at the same time? Otherwise I’m doing these silent breath dances 😃)
.

Here’s my celebration dance from Saturday! 🎉💛

In one week, I gave three big workshops as well as 6 coaching and breathwork sessions while being on my period.

.

✨ Release & Nourish (half day retreat breathwork & sound bath) with Jitka Janakieva
✨ Freedom Through Breath (breathwork journey)
✨ Love Your Essence (half day workshop into embracing your truth) with Faith Jones
.
I also assisted my gorgeous friend Lisa Li in her breathwork ceremony on Saturday.
.
Then I passed out a bit after coming home 😂
.
We mostly celebrate and honour tangible results which is important, but I also want to celebrate something intangible which is as important.
.
I used to go into overwhelm when I had a lot going on. This time, I took it one workshop, one session at a time and I enjoyed myself in this flow.
.
This is the thing. You’re always doing one thing at a time. When you think about aaaallll the things you need to do, of course you go into overwhelm.
.
When you only think and do the next thing, and not do anything else until you complete on that, then you find your flow. Then you go into the next thing, the next thing and the next thing. You have hold the big vision but focus on the next thing. Then it becomes a beautiful ride.
.
When you change the way you look at something, the whole experience changes. Overwhelm turns into flow. A lot going on turns into a big adventure. I’m especially celebrating this 🎉
.
What are you celebrating today?
.
I love you 💛

✨ I ALLOW ✨

Last week was one of those weeks that felt like a whole month happened in a week 😃

.

✨ Celebrating You, 7 week online course I facilitate, started! We had our first call with incredible women I feel honoured to know.
.
✨ My mum came to visit and joined the breathwork journey we held! She stayed for few days and we created a deeper sense of love and appreciation for each other 🙏🏼
.
✨ 2 women reached out to me wanting to work with me.
.
✨ Yesterday I held a Goddess Circle, workshop for women, an evening of letting go and reconnecting with yourself. I filmed this afterwards 💃🏽
.
All this happened while I was ON MY PERIOD 🔴
.
My life tends to thrive and opportunities seem to come to me while I’m on my period 😃 as I’m more receptive and allowing more. I basically don’t have as much energy to drive forward or even resist. It showed me I don’t have to be on my period to allow. I can receive and allow other times, reminding myself by saying, “I allow.”
.
When everything is flowing, I notice my Ego sneaking in with doubt trying to gain control, telling me:
- This is too good to be true
- Remember last time you were in flow, it all went downhill from there
- You can’t manage all this
.
Then I close my eyes and come back to my heart where I know I can have it all, so can you ❤️
.
Love you 💛

💃🏽 CONFIDENCE: BEING YOURSELF💃🏽

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 17.59.17.png

Video: https://www.facebook.com/isik.tlabar/posts/10160864658090300?__tn__=K-R

.

Confidence is owning all that you are and showing up in the world saying “This is who I am.” ❤️

.

One of the most common things I come across people say in sessions and workshops is in some form or another, “I want to be myself. Sometimes, I don’t know who I am.”

.

Confidence starts with being yourself. I don’t believe you can fake until you make it. People can tell that you’re faking it, they’re not stupid. And you definitely know that you’re faking it 😃 so what’s the point of that when you can start from where you’re at? Sometimes being yourself is being in silence. You don’t have to express your opinion about everything all the time. Or you don’t have to be loud to be or feel confident. No confident person ever tried to prove they’re confident anyway.

.

When you see someone being themselves, it gives you the permission to do the same in your own way. You might have heard this quote by Marianne Williamson, 

.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

.

It’s probably my favourite quote to date ❤️

.

As children we felt free, we lived in the moment. We didn’t worry about how we looked or what people thought about us. We were so busy being ourselves, having fun and enjoying the world. What if we kept that outlook on life? What if we didn’t doubted or questioned ourselves?

.

I saw ‘I Feel Pretty’ last week. I loved it so much that I watched it again. It’s about how we pressure ourselves to look a certain way, especially women, how we criticise ourselves constantly beating ourselves up. When we look at someone we can see what makes them, them, in their unique way but when it comes down to ourselves, we’re our worst critics.

.

✨ Who would you be if no one you knew existed?✨

Who you are is you, better than all the comparisons and shoulds because no one is you. No one has your face, your ideas, your energy, your creativity. Even if its a similar idea that is done before, it’s not you who’s doing it, your energy matters. 

.

✨ What would you do if rejection didn’t exist? ✨

.

Rejection is another thing. When it happens, we make it personal about us. Even if we knew deep down, that person wasn’t right for us, now on top of that you feel rejected, unwanted and unloved. The truth is it doesn’t mean anything about you, and it’s time to find someone who will cherish you for who you are.

.

Another thing is you don’t have to believe in yourself all the time. I definitely don’t. All you need is 1-2 cheerleaders by your side as a reminder of what you already know, deep down. They can be your friend, lover, your coach, someone that will tell you, “I believe in you. You’re a shining star and you got this.” And some days its you, telling yourself.

.

Here’s a process for you:

- Stand infront of a mirror and look into your eyes

- Keep breathing

- Think of something you like about yourself and say it to yourself out loud

- It can be small or big, physical or anything else. To take it to the next level, do this once a day every day for a week and see what you come up with 🤩 you might even hug yourself by the end of it 🌹

.

If you want to feel what it feels like to be yourself, with no judgement or shame, come do breathwork with me on the 20th next week. If you know what that feels like, come join anyway. Let’s go deeper, find parts of you that you didn’t know was there. And all you’re doing is breathing ✨

.

Make sure to book your ticket if you want to join, we’re half full now. Here’s the link to book:

.

You might get caught up in your imperfections and completely miss what makes you amazing until someone points it out.

.

So tag a friend and comment below. What do you love about them? What makes them, them? Let’s celebrate each other 😍❤️

.

Loads of love to you 😘

🌺 CREATING WHAT YOU LOVE NO MATTER WHAT 🌺

The beautiful women who joined us in the Awakened Woman workshop last Saturday 😍

.

In the morning my dear friend Amanda who was assisting and I arrived at the venue to set it up. I knew the code to the outside door, but downstairs doors were locked. I’ve been using this venue for a year and this never happened before.
.
So we can’t access the room. My first response is trying few codes, do everything to get in while my mind scans other options like changing venue etc, full on solution mode. Then eventually I get angry, I panic, cry a little while Amanda is searching ways to get in, holding her ground.
.
I knew cancellation was not an option so we had to get in. At this point, I delayed the starting time 30 minutes giving us enough time.
.
I contact few of my friends who use the venue in case they knew. Then we started calling the numbers on the flyers outside the venue as they use the same space as well, saying, ‘Good morning, this is a bit random but we’re in this venue trying to get in. Do you know the code to get in?’ 😂
.
One of them does!
.
He told us the codes are in a box in the kitchen. We found the box and the codes are in there. We put in the codes and they work! The only problem is, now the door is jammed 🙈 I break the door handle by accident, Amanda puts it back together 😄
.
We spent another 15 minutes trying to get in.
.
What happened next was unbelievable. We still don’t know how it happened...
.
Amanda stands there, in her mind she tells herself, ‘NO MORE!’. Then enters the code, pushes the door handle and the door opens! We stare each other in shock.
.
We go in, shake it all off, shout, scream, punch pillows, move, then we’re good to go like nothing happened 😄
.
It was a beautiful, powerful, intense workshop with huge release.. I loved every second of it 😍❤️
.
Afterwards we crushed at Amanda’s unable to move or speak properly 😂
.
It was an incredible day from start to the finish. In the first part of the day, I was talking about no matter what the circumstances are, you can have what you love. You’re not bypassing what’s happening now but you’re making a new choice in where you want to go. I gave this as an example. I was initially super angry at the venue organiser for not giving me the codes. I could have chosen to hold onto my anger or I could find ways to get in. I chose the latter one.
.
No matter what obstacles come your way, even at times things seem impossible, just decide you’ll make a way to get to where you want to go to and the opportunities will present themselves ✨
.
Thank you gorgeous woman who joined us last week!
.
Loads of love to you ❤️

💃🏽 GODDESS CIRCLE’S MAGIC IS BACK 💃🏽

goddess circle magic.jpg

It’s going to be a year soon since the first women’s workshop I ever did, Goddess Circle.💗 

.

The ones I was doing lately were beautiful, loving, filling up and but they didn’t have the magic they had way in the beginning. When you do something a lot, it can feel like a routine now, something which used to scare you is what you normally do now. So you might disconnect from it emotionally. I felt like that was happening.
.
2 days ago, I held another one and I got emotional before starting. I felt super grateful for doing this work, for my growth and for women who are showing up to feel, dance, imagine and release ✨
.
It feels like I’m back at that point of feeling pure joy and excitement for these workshops, just another level added with feeling more relaxed and more like myself.
.
I created this workshop because I wanted women to feel what letting go, surrender and being in your body feels like. When you feel it, you know what it feels like, you know what you’re looking for. If you don’t have that feeling you don’t know what you’re looking for. It becomes a reference point your body remembers. And it becomes easier to access it again because you know what it feels like now ❤️
.
Some words below from the feedback forms to share the experience women had which describes way better than I can:
.
.
“There was no fear/worry/anxiety. My mind stopped and I became just my body. I let my body talk to me and actually that’s the first time I felt love towards each part of my body. It took me to my deep, real self where only love and peace is talking.”
.
“It’s an opportunity to let go, release and reconnect with yourself in a warm, loving and safe environment of powerful women.”
.
“Illuminating. I experienced my’self’ in a way I hadn’t before.”
.
.
The next one’s on the 23rd April, Monday, 6:30-9pm in Covent Garden. 4 spaces left. Here’s the link to book:
.
https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3206323
.
They’re 6 women only, in an intimate and loving group which is one of the things that makes them special I feel like ✨
.
Any questions you have about them, please message me.

Loads of love to you 💛

🌀 DANCE YOUR WAY OUT OF SHAME 🌀

I’ve been quiet for nearly two weeks now. A lot has been going on, I was in a place where I didn’t know where to start sharing from, so I didn’t share at all 😂 I’m going to break it down for you all, about what has been coming up for me lately. Here’s the first one 💛

.

I was always ashamed of the way I moved and danced. As soon as I moved a bit sensual, shame would creep in. I would judge myself, worried how others are judging me too. When I first went to ecstatic dancing 3 years ago, I judged everyone there, I thought, ‘Omg where have I come to? These crazy people.’ without knowing that’d be the place I release tons of bagage each time, the place I meet one of my closest friend today and the place I hear my body’s wisdom for the first time.
.
After few times of going dancing, judgement towards myself and others went away. I started to get out of my head, come back into my body and allow it to do it’s own thing. I cried, cried and cried so many times. Now I go to 5rhythms every week which is movement meditation practice at the same venue, a beautiful magical church in Vauxhall. I dance most days in the mornings, in-between sessions, cooking or at night.
.
The other night, I was writing but the words were coming out from my head, there was no emotion in them. I decided to put on some psytrance, shake my body a bit, breathe, open my jaw, move a little, connect and film myself.
.
When I filmed this, I had no intention to post it anywhere. It was for me to see myself in my frustration and have compassion for myself. I watched the whole thing cringing, not wanting to watch it. I thought, I look weird. I felt embarrasment and shame, I allowed myself to feel it. Then I asked myself, ‘Who says dancing needs to look a specific way?’ It’s your dance and you decide how you want to move and you don’t have to explain why. And it’s ok to have these thoughts and feelings even when you’ve been dancing for a while now.
.
The same night after moving, I sat down and wrote 1,200 words in one go.
.
You can dance your dreams into your life and dance trauma out of your life. Your body has its own wisdom and if only you can listen to it and trust it just a little bit more, it has so much to say ❤️
.
To see yourself deeper and to be seen, follow these steps:
- Film yourself dancing, moving (if dancing is not your thing, it could be talking to the camera). Let your body move in any way it wants to move, there are no mistakes in moving
- Watch it yourself or even better, show it to a close friend of yours and watch it together
- See the beauty in you as you watch it. If you’re watching with a friend, you don’t need to hear their feedback, just allow yourself to be seen by them.
.
May you dance your dreams into your life 🙏🏼💙

I just had a mindblowing experience 💥

mindblowing experience.jpg

This incredible humanbeing cuchira (on instagram), she expressed her art again, her movmeant class. Thank you for being you, your art, your love and energy.. She's so real that it brings out the realness, rawness in everyone ❤️

.

At times I was on the floor, crying weeping, at times jumping moving around, connecting moving with others. I had a super honest time with myself, feeling everything I'm feeling, not pretending, just being with me.
.
You can't be one way all the time. You have so many parts of you. You have ups downs. Sad, sexual, happy, expanded, joyful, liberated, stuck, angry, shy, contracted, its all you. Because you're human, raw and beautiful as you are. You have your darkness and lightness. The darker you can go, the lighter you can get. The lightest people I met are the ones who went into the depth of their darkness and they're beautiful ❤️
.
I had moments where I was hugging myself and just felt pure love for myself. It's empowering you know, when you give yourself the love you always wanted from others, then you don't keep people around you responsible to love you. You don't resent them for not doing that. Because you're receiving all the love from you and if more love comes to you, its great its extra on top of it 😍
.
She was saying in the end, Go into forest, what would you do if no one existed? Shout, scream, whatever. Do that. What if you always did what you wanted instead of what everyone else wants?
.
As I'm writing this on the bus, I saw a sign says 'lighthouse'. It makes me remember, you know what you need. You're your own guide, your own healer. You know what to do for yourself. Allow yourself to feel it all, give yourself permission. When you go into the depths of that sadness, anger, shame that joy, whatever it is, you'll see that you're free and beautiful as you are✨
.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend in this 'kinda raining but not really' weather 😃🌧
.
Love you 💙
.
