“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde
Being who we truly are, in a world where we are conditioned to be a certain way from the day we are born, isn’t easy. If it was, the world might be a very different place.
When we were young children, we were truly ourselves. What you see is what you get with them. Children are connected to themselves as well as the world around them. They respond to everything life offers with wonderment, excitement and pure joy. However, it is also when we were young that we learnt about the world we live in – the family we had, the schools we went to, the friends we played with, all had a part to play in how we developed.
One of the favourite coaching questions to ask a client is “what made your heart shine when you were young?” – from this they can start to create a picture of where their true self lies.
For me, it was dancing and listening to music. However, I wasn’t a flexible child, so the splits were never something I could do, plus I was a bit clumsy and shy – not the best mix for a potential dancer! So, I never pursued my dream. I never felt good enough.
One of the many reasons I developed Let’s Shake & Flow is because of the above. A Movement Meditation where there is no routine or choreography. A space where we get to shake off old emotions, relax our bodies and connect to ourselves all at the same time. You don’t have to be a dancer to Shake & Flow – all you need is you!
And then there is Yoga Nidra – one of the most beautiful meditations I have ever experienced. Having an opportunity to lie down, wrap up in a blanket and even drift off to sleep (I’m now very used to clients doing this!) if the body needs it, is so calming. In this comfortable space of deep and relaxed awareness, you will find yourself peeling back the layers to discover your true self.
Independently, these two practices have the power to transform, through relaxation and awareness and connection. Put together the results are even more mighty! A chance to become more ‘you’ than you have ever been before!
Because, when we connect deep within, breakthroughs are set in motion. And we get to meet our True Self.

There is power in two, but coming from a family of three sisters, I know for a fact that there is incredible potency when we add one more. So, I am excited to bring about a new online event, co-created with the wonderful Leila Hassan, combining Let’s Shake & Flow, Yoga Nidra and Reconnective Healing Energy (RHE) in one event.
