As we move through the daily hum of our existence, most of our time and thought patterns are simply about the day to day. Rarely do we have time or space to dive deeper into those bigger questions- Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Am I living the life I am meant to be living? Am I happy?
One of the silver linings of 2020 was that it allowed us time and space to ponder these types of thoughts a little more. People all over the globe took advantage of the plethora of online courses available and self development was something that we were able to prioritise and invest in a little more than usual.
As humans, we are designed to evolve and grow. Our trajectory through life isn’t meant to stagnate. However, life does its best to trap us. We find comfort and stay there. We find a place to nest and decide we no longer need to know what flight tastes like. We hit a plateau, sometimes not even realising the fact until years pass and by and we look back with hindsight. These moments of stillness, nesting, stagnancy- they may not be unpleasant, in fact, often their comfort is what is alluring about them. However they pull the veil over our eyes as to what is truly possible. They take away our ability to see our full potential that remains just out of reach.
Self development work honours our need and thirst for growth, expansion and change. It requires us to shake our foundations and look beyond what is right in front of us. It reminds us that we CAN dream bigger and that we don't need to settle for something that isn't one hundred percent true for us.
Self development work can come in all sorts of guises. Often it is working with someone privately or in a group environment. It may have to do with career, relationships, health, or any area of your life that you are wanting to focus more energy on and create positive change within.
When we dedicate our time and energy to growth and development, incredible things begin to happen.
We are our own greatest critics and sometimes we need to get out of our own way and see things in a new light to really spark that ‘ah-ha’ moment that inspires us to take those first steps towards change. Self-development encourages us and guides us to be in alignment with our true nature. When we are in that space within, we have boundless energy and unlimited belief in ourselves and what we are capable of.
It's easy to make goals and have dreams. The real work comes with actioning these goals and dreams and bringing them to life; taking them off the written page and into reality. Maybe you're wanting to eat a healthier diet, deepen your yoga or meditation practice, have more meaningful relationships, start your own business, reconnect with yourself on a deeper level, prioritise self-care, find a like-minded community, amp up your fitness or nurture your mental health.
At Zenko, it is important to us that we are supporting you not only during class, but throughout your life outside the studio alos. That is why we are so passionate about offering you courses, trainings and immersions that invite you to dive deeper.
In 2021 we are stepping into new ground as we grow in new ways, spurred on by our desire to help you to do the same. This year we are focusing more energy on supporting you on an individual basis, and our community at large.

This is perhaps the most opportunistic time in our lifetime to stop, reassess and reinvent ourselves. We have the invitation to really get clear on where we are and where we want to go. Now is the time to pause, learn, absorb, listen, find clarity, and then, take inspired action. Now is the time for you to shine.
Too often we live life in default mode, cycling through our habitual habits, patterns and routines without questioning their validity. In this way, we can go for years not living up to our highest potential. You are here to do great things. 2020 taught us that we can pivot and change, that we are creatures designed for adaptation and rebirth. It would be easy to settle back into our previous ways, but what a sheer waste that would be.
Listen to the call within you. Say yes to self development. Prepare for a journey that will empower you to be the version of yourself you have always longed to meet.
