This year I choreographed, performed and produced a sold out show which highlighted artists of color via dance and live music #InMySkin317
Initiated my first #HealHerWorkshops tour which also sold out but more importantly were some of the most beautiful, powerful and inspiring days of the year. .
Celebrated 8 years of teaching weekly #AfroHipHopDance classes!
Practiced vulnerable creativity by sharing clips of raw, impromptu, improvisational performance art on IG, which is huge for me because I usually only share things that are more polished and orchestrated and I wanted to push myself in this way so we out here winning as #TatiMoves. .
Practiced loving my husband better and persevered thru the most challenging time of our marriage. More on that later. .
Found a way to support my family thru some major tests + take granny to a bunch of full day doctors visits during the busiest work time of the year. .
Also started planning a women’s healing retreat in Bali for fall of next year which I’m super excited about!! #SheHealHer
I have a really good feeling about 2019. Like it stirs me up in the best way. Whether you’re feeling down or hopeful about the future, setting goals or setting intentions to not set goals, I pray we find more peace in our hearts and rely on each other more. Here’s to experiencing an abundance of joy, love, creativity, soul nourishing experiences and dreams fulfilled. Thanks for sharing this journey with me. Much love fam 💓🙌🏾

Sometimes I dread corporate gigs. Even if I’m presenting on a topic i feel passionate about they feel nothing like my #HealHerWorkshops. They are usually filled with folks who didn’t sign up for what I’m offering and it’s never fun to deal with a room filled with resistance. But when it goes well and folks show their appreciation and enthusiasm from the experience it can be so rewarding. And even more rewarding when they’re more receptive than you expect them to be and they walk away feeling good and inspired. That’s really all i can ask for. It doesn’t always go that way. But I’m just the messenger co-creating with community and we all play a role in what we experience together. So here’s to pushing ourselves past our comfort zones and being open to what’s on the other side of that - the other side of being brave, curious and vulnerable.
How I feel about my recent #HealHerWorkshops .
Nurturing my callings is one the greatest things that brings me joy. I notice I’m not as overwhelmed by the atrocities of life because focusing on my role in the greater world web, however small that may be, keeps me grounded and moving with purpose. But just to keep it 💯 I’m also exhausted. Please don’t call me for two weeks. This week I’ll be prepping for a private full day workshop and next week I’ll be sleeping 😜 cuz #selfcare 💗
so grateful and humbled by today’s Heal Her Workshop which was the last one of the season. the timing could not have been more perfect after such an intense, political, emotional week. i strongly believe we are birthing the promise of a new tomorrow and as we know, birthing pains can be extremely painful and often times feel unbearable. keep breathing. take it slow if you need to. these social contractions are simply part of the process but we will survive our personal and collective trauma by supporting each other. please reach out to your people and spend quality time with loved ones. find gatherings of like minded folks and healing spaces that speak to you. feel the pain then find healthy ways to release it and then go breathe some more. how can you recharge how can you nourish yourself when you feel depleted maybe you need to be alone for a while but please remember to return to community when you’re ready. there is so much power, transformation and unifying solutions when we come together, plus we’re living in a time where we truly need each other, perhaps more than ever before. i know i do which is why I’m incredibly grateful to the women that showed up today. thank you for trusting me to hold honest space for you. thank you for showing up for yourself and other women who need what you got to give - those spiritual gifts that are filled with so much courage, wisdom and love. you became a healing balm to many wounds that had been cut open. let’s keep the magic, conscious support and tender love flowing, however that may look to you 💗💫 #SheHealHer #HealHerWorkshops #WeGonBeAlright
Still feeling high vibes from facilitating a #movementtherapy workshop this past weekend at Sage Sistahs LA Conference -Celebrating The Aging Journey. Holding space for mindbody connections, joy and healing in a way that seems to give back tenfold is a blessing i don’t take for granted. And you know I had to sneak in a little #AfroHipHopDance cuz that’s how we do! .
Btw there are 4 Thursday night classes left in 2018 + our 8 Year Anniversary class with live drumming is coming up on the 25th! Can’t wait ❤️💃🏽
Not everyone is going to get you, support you or encourage how you move in the world. Show up anyway. Embrace the parts of your existence you were taught to be ashamed of. .
You were not created to mold yourself into other people’s definitions, hopes and false interpretations of how you should be. You are not responsible for their reactions, judgements or criticisms. You are only responsible for trusting your truth.
You don’t need to fluff your feathers or show off your magic tricks to prove you are worthy. .
Step into your power. Step into your truth. Step into your light. You were created to show up exactly as you are. .

Thank you to all of the beautiful, brave women who healed with me this weekend and over the past couple of months in my #healherworkshops. I am seriously in awe of your strength, resilience, vulnerability and feminine power. Also, I am such a better woman because of you 🌺
Shot out to the folks who traveled from Orange County, San Diego and Chicago! — From Princeton to New York - From Nashville to Atlanta. Y’all keep inspiring me to trust this calling and explore ways I can continue to support you 🙌🏾
Speaking of, I’ve added a second LA date for the waitlist folks, which means this next workshop is already half full + I’m capping the number to 19 women instead of the usual 25 cuz we’ll be using a smaller space. .
Next workshop will be at a lovely healing arts studio at @cocoonsantamonica, October 7th, 10am-5pm. Visit TatianaZamir.com for more info & to RSVP! ❤️
My LA workshop is officially SOLD OUT! Thank you 🙏🏾 I may be adding a second date to the calendar if enough women are added to the waitlist. Please let me know if you’re interested in attending 🌹
I am excited! I am humbled. I am grateful
I used to wake in the middle of the night gasping for breath. I was sure these night terrors were remnants of ancestral trauma. Every time I screamed myself into a sitting position and every time I saw images of white hoods with torches burning fire around my house. On top of the night terrors, I have always struggled with falling a sleep. A couple years a go I discovered that amethyst is one of the stones that helps with peaceful sleep. Out of all of my baby crystals I just so happened to own two large amethyst. I began sleeping with them next to my bed and I kid you not, I never had a night terror again. except for that one time I was traveling and forgot to pack them. I honestly thought that maybe it would help a little, but i’m still blown away at how this power stone has supported me and transformed my relationship with sleep. But that’s not it’s only superpower. Some of its properties include:
✨Mood support: promoting a calm, balanced and peaceful state .
✨Enhances psychic and intuitive abilities
✨Provides protection and supports the release of addictions .
✨Facilitates meditation and communication with ones guides/angels .
✨Supports healthy communication such as active listening/receiving ideas as well as expressing ideas/emotions .
✨Helps with difficult decision making .
✨Supports the immune system .
✨And the list goes on! May you get some good #crystaltherapy if working with these gems resonates with you. Because this particular stone has special meaning to me in addition to its healing properties aligning with many of my intentions, i have been incorporating amethyst in my #HealHerWorkshops
✨Btw LOS ANGELES 9/15 Workshop is SOLD OUT! I may be adding a second LA workshop to the calendar soon. Please let me know if you’re interested in attending 💜✨

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom. -Anais Nin
Healing is not always fun, easy or beautiful. In fact, most of the process can be very hard, ugly and seriously painful. Still, you don’t have to do it all alone. There is healing in being mirrored. There is healing in community and sisterhood. There is healing in remembering that others share your same struggles and there is a way thru - on the other side of your pain. And the pieces of truth and joy you pick up along the way begin to renew you from the inside out. Settling into your eyes, your smile and the way you move in the world. May we remember that our thorns serve to protect us and continue to bloom, blossom and be beautiful 💐 .
This Sunday is the last to register with one of the early bird specials for Reclaiming The Body - Trusting The Healer Within. Visit link below for more info and to reserve your spot: ✨TatianaZamir.com✨
#SheHealHer #HealHerWorkshops #WomenInBloom
Word! Who wants to join me There’s a few days left to register with an early bird special for my upcoming women’s workshop on Reclaiming The Body - Trusting The Healer Within. We will partake in a variety of soul nourishing exercises which include movement therapy techniques designed to heal from present life struggles as well as ancestral trauma. We know from the science of epigenetics that we carry generational pain from our ancestors. The good news is, we can do something about it. Not only so we can feel more liberated in our own spirit-bodies, but also to lesson the load for our children and future generations to come. It’s deep work. It’s powerful, effective and there’s a spot with your name on it if you’re ready for some conscious, transformational healing. Trust me when I say you are not alone, “We Got You!”
For more info and to RSVP visit: www.TatianaZamir.com
WHEN: September 15th, 10am-5pm
WHERE: Crenshaw Yoga & Dance
Rest your bones. Replenish your spirit. Revive your intentions. Reconnect with your authentic self. Reclaim your body and trust the healer within. .
These are just a few things that happen in my #HealHerWorkshops. Facilitating these last two workshops in Atlanta and New York has reminded me just how important this work is. That we truly need each other and there is a certain type of soul awakening, connection and transformative magic that is felt when women come together, especially to experience conscious healing. .
While LA is my home base, I am averaging only 1-2 intensive healing days a year that are open to the public. Los Angeles, don’t miss this opportunity if it speaks to you. There are 2 weeks left to register with one of the early bird specials! Visit TatianaZamir.com for more info and to RSVP 🌹
i held space for 50 women in one week in two different states. i did this while having some deep personal struggles i had to suppress so i could show up for them with all i got. but then i was able to continue my own healing in the workshops because these women went in so deep that they took me with them. i cried their tears and they cried mine. but we also laughed, danced and uplifted each other energetically and physically. i left with endless gratitude in my heart and i will continue to celebrate these unforgettable moments, because it’s these special moments that remind me why I’m alive.
Los Angeles you’re next! Join us for a special intensive healing day led by yours truly. Early bird specials are available until 9/9. For more info visit: TatianaZamir.com ✨✨✨

When women support each other incredible things happen — I am breathing in this mantra because it couldn’t be more true. I am overwhelmed with awe and gratitude for the healing that happened in this space. Thank you NY for showing up with so much vulnerability, honesty and wisdom. This was a powerful group and I’m still processing the strength, commitment and love that circulated within and around us. Incredibly grateful to be a vessel for this work ✨💫

After lots of travel, 3 hours of sleep, and starting my cycle the morning of the workshop i wasn’t sure how i would hold up. But it’s crazy how your body will push through and become a vehicle when you’re in your purpose. And I’d do it all over again to experience the magic and transformation that happened in this Heal Her workshop. So grateful to be creating spaces that allow women to strengthen their trust in other women and themselves. •
Atlanta you were so receptive 🙏🏾 Even the ones that came in with a stank face left with hearts wide open. Thank you! You healed me just as much as I hope to have healed you. What a powerful group of womyn 💓🙌🏾 #SheHealHer •
NY you have a few hours left to register with one of the early bird specials. See y’all Sunday 💫 #HealHerWorkshops
ATL Heal Her Workshop is officially SOLD OUT!!! I cannot wait to co-create healing magic with so many powerful, amazing womyn! .
✨NY early bird specials are available until this Sunday 8/12 ✨LA y’all have a couple more weeks to jump on board but i don’t recommend waiting till last minute to reserve your spot ✨✨✨ For more info and to RSVP visit TatianaZamir.com .
As an entrepreneur there can be so much risk involved in making decisions without guaranteed results. But I’m committed to following my soul’s calling and I’m incredibly grateful when the Universe responds with a resounding yessssss! #SheHealHer #HealHerWorkshops #WombTangClan
We need spaces where we can decompress, move freely and feel comfortable in our skin. Spaces where we can express ourselves creatively and tap into the magic that desires to flow through us. Spaces where we can play, have fun and also go as deep within as needed in order to clear the noise around us and connect with that inner knowing that brings true peace of mind. Spaces where we can really be ourselves and allow our authenticity to vibrate out through our pores. Giving everyone around us permission to breathe easy and let love connect us to something greater than ourselves. My hope is that these upcoming Heal Her workshops will be that type of space that encourages so many wholesome womyn to get exactly what they need to support them through life’s challenges. Perhaps this type of space is exactly what you or someone you know is longing for and could benefit from being supported in this way. •
Atlanta + New York + LA - Early bird specials are soon coming to a close. If finances are the only thing preventing you from enrolling, please reach out and we’ll see how we can support you 💜 For more info and to reserve your spot, visit TatianaZamir.com 💫

We have stories in our bodies we can heal through movement. Stories that have caused us pain. A pain we can learn how to set free.
Heal Her is an experience where we can tap into our whole being - mind, body, heart and spirit - through intentional exercises, including my Movement Liberation Technique. .
It's a space where we can feel supported, uplifted and grounded in who we are. Where we can be immersed in the beauty of the feminine. .
Whether we have danced since childhood or never before - We can embrace our unique design and truly love the body we are in -- as we move ourselves into freedom. #SheHealHer

I’m grateful to be circling back to these offerings which are near and dear to my heart. To those of you who have been reaching out about upcoming workshops, thank you for your patience. It’s been a while since I’ve opened these back up to the public as I’ve been getting a lot more private work over the last year and a half, facilitating workshops and retreats with other organizations. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve grown a lot and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been learning. Looking forward to reconnecting with my community of artists, healers, activists, mamas and all womyn who desire to connect deeply with themselves and be supported by other like minded souls.
I recommend signing up for my newsletter via the website so you don’t miss out on this opportunity: TatianaZamir.com. Save the date for now and stay tuned for more details 🌸
My office this week + 6 THINGS .... inspired by @nikkiblak but she does it better 🌹
1. This week I got to co-lead a retreat via an organization called A Thousand Joys. I usually facilitate holistic healing arts retreats with the Joyful Heart Foundation so there's definitely a theme happening here 🤗
2. We had a digestive physiologist as our chef and a massage therapist who teaches hip hop chi gong. Just a taste of our diverse, amazing team.
3. I saw a mama and baby deer right outside my tea house - twice 💕
4. The first activity I was encouraged to do by my boss was to swim in a healing mineral salt pool to bond with participants. Uhmm, yes please!
5. While some of y'all may think we're just over here having a good time, I continue to discover just how deep and profound this #healing work is. Our research has been trickling in from Georgetown University and the results are mind blowing! I can't wait to share them with you once they're published.
6. I am incredibly grateful for this dream job and all of the beautiful experiences that come with it. Shot out to my boss, co-facilitator, friend and gangster word smith Sherisa for always believing in me, pushing my work forward and creating healing spaces I get to participate in. I am in deep #gratitude 🙏🏾
We've prepared a seat for you. Placed gifts on your bed. Sprayed the rooms with sage and well wishes. Set intentions and sang your praises before even meeting you. This week will be soulful. This week will be sacred. This week will be special, because it always is. #HolisticHealingArtsRetreat #Day1 #WomensWellness #JoyfulHeartFoundation
We already know how to serve others. How to give away pieces of ourself that don't belong to nobody else. But today we remembered our true selves. Remembered how to receive. How to be loved and supported in a sacred way. How to be more vulnerable, more powerful and certainly more than enough - as we explored various ways to #love ourselves into communal #liberation. Today was something #magical ✨Thank you ladies!!!! My heart is so full ❤❤❤
It was an honor to work with such a high caliber of amazing women today. I continue to be inspired by your glory and reminded of how important these types of healing spaces are. Spaces that awaken us, empower us and encourage the feminine to thrive. Thank you ladies for being so fabulous, simply by being you! #nofilter #purebeauty #purejoy #SheHealHer #HealHerWorkshops
One of the ladies missing from the photo is @mumumansion cuz she took the pic. Thanks boo!
Totally forgot to take a group photo of tonight's healing workshop, so I share my tired, grateful eyes instead. Thank you ladies for trusting me. Thank you for trusting each other. My heart is full ✨💖✨ #SheHealHer - Link in bio 🙌🏾
Bliss is helping me bless these very special chevron amethyst crystals for tonight's workshop participants. This stone has many healing properties which includes relieving stress, enhancing peace of mind, increasing self discovery, courage and also assist in the recovery of addictions. Let the healing begin ✨🔮✨ #SheHealHer #HealHerWorkshops
As if the results of the election didn’t stir up enough turmoil - now, with the holiday season upon us - many of us will also be processing family dynamics and #foodaddiction, which often times triggers insecurities around #bodyimage. There is a lot to digest emotionally and physically.
So many people are afraid, nervous, angry, fearful and sad - and they have a right to be. These feelings are important and are part of the human experience. My question is, do you have healthy ways to process these emotions to help prevent body pain and disease Could you use more tools to activate your joy and keep you on an intentional path
It can be hard enough to process your own feelings and experiences, but some of us have an even heavier emotional load to carry. As an #empath, there was a time I was more receptive to getting physically ill from feeling other people’s pain and emotions. I’ve learned and created some awesome techniques that have helped protect my energy and keep my mind-body practice in alignment. I’d love to share these resources with you and practice #HealingThroughMovement. Lets gather all the wise women we know and shower each other with the healing balm of love, sisterhood and ancient wisdom ✨🔮🙌🏾 #SheHealHer
