Sharing some beautiful inspiration

Below is an amazing testimonial / review from Monique who attended the Zurakaro open day and inspired me greatly with her enthusiasm and can do attitude. I hope it inspires you as much as it did me.


Dear Andy, Mikey, Bhav, Niki and co. 

Brief overview:

Gloves, Pads at the ready for PowerKube sesh – worked on personal development&making a promise that I’ll throw the best punch in the whole wide world👊🏽🌍. Next treasuring an imaginary ball, feeling the vibes travelling through my arms from the roots of the ground we stand/sit on &repeat. Expanding my lungs inhaling & exhaling🌻🔥. Next 1 to 1 sesh skills&drills guarding&self defence work on structure & alignment releasing the tension within. To end this productive&inclusive event, transporting myself to a happy place. Feeling the warm, golden, healing light🕯🌈. Came home feeling better than I have in months. Still a long way to go but I’ve made the first step forward following the yellow brick road 👣💛. Drove my chair back&forth to the train station with my bearings still in sight&most importantly a bag full of goodies&treats to munch during my train ride back home 🚦🍫

Detailed :

Oh my gosh , where do I begin I really let off steam in your classes. 

When I went to a happy place I saw the Angels. My baby brother, my grandparents, my Massi (Aunty), my friends who have passed. All smiling at me. Just before I opened my eyes I honestly saw the light.

For an hour the class were relaxed and led by our wonderful coach to use our childlike imagination. And feel the roots on the ground rising up from soles of our feet to the crown of our head.

On loop the music played and led us on the road to feel the golden, warm, healing light.

Felt better than I have in months. And as I closed my eyes I felt myself well up. Rising above negativity, rejuvenate and restoring . Like photosynthesis

Coach used an example of heartbreak. And I thought of  …💔

The first session Adapted session ‘powerkube’ seeing our targets and my personal best. I couldn’t keep up with the rest as my punches were delayed. Mikey told me not to worry and took me aside to work one to one. And said even if my punches register just once on the machine that’s an achievement. And I’m welcome any time to join in free. Said I’m a good sport for being In front of people I don’t know and giving the activity a good go

Then tai chi class. Meaning passing the energy through our bodies. Using the top half of my body holding a treasured ball. Expanding my lungs and concentrating on breathing. Then transferring vibes from one arm to another. Pushing and pulling. Apart and together, good to memorise in the brain. At another visit the physio Bhav will work on my legs to suit me

Other classes I couldn’t manage, I was happy to sit and observe. So much info to digest and it was a learning curve for coaches as they’ve never expanded to special needs before. I was their guinea pig and proud to test out & shine my abilities. Everyone has room to grow and they’re an amazing Inclusive team. Looked after me throughout as there was no point me going home in between classes

And most importantly had yummy treats and goodie bag to go. Banana flapjack and choc energy ball. What a dream to eat. 🌸💪🌸
