Welcome to the Blog.

Apparently, you don’t need to be a writer to write a blog, which is just as well because I’m not a writer; I’m a Pilates Teacher (and a Pilates Studio owner).

This is where I'll try to add another layer of understanding of what we do, how we do it and at times some shorter items of random thoughts and/or reflections.

✨Get Your Power Back✨

Published on 5th Jan 2021 at 14:00 by Efrat (Aoife) Kahanov

Hi Everyone,

I know things are hard right now and you might be feeling tried of this whole Pandemic stuff. Being stuck in a third lockdown is not what we wished for ourself. 

I hear you.

If you're feeling powerless and less "sparkly" at this moment I wanted to let you know that there is a way to get your own power back, and for that you need two things:
A) Realise you have your own power and B) Take ownership of your power...

But I’m jumping ahead of myself.

Let me start from the beginning - -

Power is energy. 

It is the inherent ability to 
Do things 
Direct things 
Create things, or
Influence things
in order to get what you want. 

We all find ourselves in situations where we feel incapable of doing, directing, creating or influencing things in order to get what we want. 
We all find ourselves under circumstances where we feel out of control, disempowered and at the mercy of others and/or a reality.

You might be feeling like that right now.

Now, power, in and of itself, is amazing. 
And you have it. 

In life there are, for sure, elements that are out of your control. 
I’m not disputing that for a second. But, I want you to understand that you do have the power to choose and that no-one can take away your free-will.

I'll say it again:


Power is NOT about changing things that you
cannot control. This IS about getting your own
to choose.
Getting your power back so that you can deal and
with the reality in a way that supports you and,
by proxy, helps everyone around you, specially the
people that you love and care about.

Let me explain.
All people or situations can do is put pressure on you. 
Nothing and nobody can take away ‘choice’ by itself – only choices!

Situations can put pressure on you to choose between “follow, comply, take part” OR -  not to.

Even if you comply, that is because you’ve decided to use your free will to choose in favour of what appears to be the lesser of consequences for you – i.e. what you think and believe is the “right” thing to do.

When it come to our situation with the pandemic we live through I’ve made my choice to comply and follow the restrictions and guidelines. It was (and is) MY choice. No one “made me” chose that way.
And because I chose what I chose A) I full heartedly believe this is the right thing to do. B) I full heartedly own that choice.

Owning my choice is ME taking my own power back and acknowledging it.

I have not chosen the situation we’re in, but I choose my action.
And with that power + acknowledgement in my hands I am not going to waist time, or energy, arguing with the situation I’m in.

We have the tendency to tell ourselves “They made me do it!” or “I HAD to do it, I didn’t have a choice!”.
The truth is no-one made you do anything and you did have a choice - only you chose to comply, to follow, to take part. And yet I see so many still arguing with themselves about that choice for the pure reason that you think that’s no what they want.

The outside pressure to choose can be immense – your life or the life of your loved ones are at stake – but no one, I say NO-ONE and NOTHING can take away your ability to choose for yourself (unless you’re dead or in a coma).

And now I can say again: 

Power is Energy.

I you’re still feeling powerless I have a workshop that will help you find your energy and get unstuck both physically (getting rid of stiffness, heaviness and even reduce pain) and connect your body on a neurophysiological level (Body-Brain). 

Happy to help you in any way I can.

As always, Much love, Aoifeღ
