Ok so you are here to find out more about me. So here goes
My name is Kay-Ann Ward, I was born in Jamaica, I am an island girl through and through.
I teach women how to awaken ignite and embody the fullest version of themselves through movement and expression. Basically I help you to embrace your inner Rihanna, Michelle Obama, Beyoncé all while channeling and honoring your connection to the divine source.
I’ve been dancing since my spirit came into this world and I’ve been teaching women how to connect to themselves for over 15+ years.
I am committed to helping you blossom so you can see, feel and embrace your full existence, your greatness that only you have. And trust me the world needs what you have to share.
Read below for more in depth details about me.
For many years I was so out of touch with who I am, what I was doing and living a life that was not very intentional. Though I was performing on stages, dancing in music videos I was struggling with believing in myself. I was struggling and I was hurting inside.
But it was suppressed. Every now and then I would create goals, accomplish them, yet I will self sabotage myself, not value myself so I was never really creating the break through that I needed to see and have in my life. I had suppressed so much of the pain and trauma that I had experienced growing up and in my early adult years. That if someone told me that I was living out of touch with myself I would have said NO real quick.
After having my daughter the doors of self discovery opened up wide for me, pulled me in and I haven’t looked back since. I could no longer suppress my pain, I could no longer live without being intentional, I could no longer be in and around toxic relationships.
There is so much more to my story. I will share more with you at different times during our connection. As I worked on myself oh so intensely I realized many things along the way.
I realized that what I’ve been doing for years in my teachings was important, however I needed to apply it to myself and I needed to be more intentional with my thoughts.
I was helping women from all walks of life to heal, connect to themselves, I was helping them let go of thoughts and beliefs that didn’t serve them, I was helping them feel and be more confident. I was helping dancers become fierce performers and teachers. I was creating shows and live events but never really believing in myself.
I was working hard on everyone else but not myself.
I needed to invest in myself. I needed to value my existence, I needed to see myself, not based off what I can do and my accomplishments but value and honour my spirit.
I needed to connect more to my sacred space, listen and honour the communication that flows through me. I needed to listen to the little girl in me. I needed to release stagnant and blocked energy that was sitting in my body. I needed energy to flow. I needed to say I deserve to receive happiness and pleasure. I needed to stop self sabotaging myself.
When I started to spend more time honouring my feminine and masculine energy. I started to experience the changes that I needed in my life. These changes impacted my personal healing and development. These changes allowed me to start shifting how I showed up for myself as well as how I showed up for my clients. My work shifted, I was now able to go deeper within me, which made me a better coach and student.
No this process wasn’t and isn’t easy, however it is worth it and it’s an ongoing process and journey.
My self work consisted of practicing dance, intuitive movement, meditation, mindfulness, writing and being one with nature. Dance and intuitive movement has always been the primary go to for me. It is what I use to activate my divine connection. I love to feel sensual and be sensual. I love to honour my feminine and masculine energy. I love to teach women how to access this divine energy flow so that they too can stand in their truth.
Dance and intuitive movement has always been the catalyst to do this. I’m a woman on a journey to explore and discover more of myself. I am creating spaces for you to also join me wherever you are on your journey. I am a vessel, the divine energy flows through me and uses me to share its message, teachings and energy with you. Like I said there is so much more to my story. I have many chapters that will be shared over time. I know you also have many chapters of your story.
