I'm Zahra
Embodiment Facilitator, Social Worker and Doula-in-the-making

I guide women in the journey back to their bodies, their innate wisdom and their radiant feminine essence through women's circles, workshops and 1:1 coaching.

I hold a vision for a world in which every woman is connected to herself

A world where every woman feels at home within her body

A world every female body is honoured

A world where every woman uses her powerful voice to create sustainable change for mother Earth

Will you join the movement?

All you have to do is start with yourself, and you've come to the right place to do exactly that.


My story

I have a Dutch mother and a Moroccan father and grew up in Amsterdam. I currently live in a small village with my partner Tolde and our son Malcom, drinking too much tea and cacao in front of the fireplace. Right, now that we have those basics out of the way, let's dive right in because perhaps you are like me, not a fan of smalltalk...


I was 17 when I was hospitalised, diagnosed with a psychosis. Living in my head, letting my fears and other's judgements rule my life, had quite literally made me go crazy. I lived out of touch with my body and my inner guidance system. I was always worried about peoples opinions, ruled by perfectionism and feeling insecure. This got so bad that my brain couldn't handle it anymore. This crisis was my turning point.

Fortunately, I received great help and recovered quickly. This event started a long journey of self-care and finding my way back to myself.Inspired by the guidance I had received, I studied to become a social worker, passionate about helping others with similar struggles. But quite quickly I discovered that I didn't feel at home in the regular (mental) health care system in the Netherlands. 

By then I had discovered yoga, meditation and mindfulness, which of course, changed everything for me. It was the missing key in my work as a social worker. And so I decided to go my own way and combine the two, that's how my business was born.

Ever since I have been helping many people, mainly women, through yoga, embodiment and mental health classes,1:1 coaching sessions, group mentorships and retreats, both on-and offline in the Netherlands, the Canary Islands and Sweden.
