Probably the MOST random title for this blog post but I promise you it will make sense.
When I originally set up my events I didn’t want to be the only one speaking simply because not everyone was going to be able to relate to me because I haven’t experienced everything! I wanted people to attend to have someone they could listen too whilst nodding their head in agreement so I decided I wanted other speakers to come too. People who inspire me all the time and ones who I admire.
It took me all of 2 seconds to work out who I wanted to ask because sometimes there is just something about someone that draws you to them and these people are exactly that for me.
Over the next 6 weeks I will be sharing the details of every speaker/panellist and how I connected with them. I cannot wait to share these stories with you and I absolutely cannot wait to share the stage with them.
So…to introduce my first speaker…here goes…
Kaya Cansfield – @kayacansfield
At the beginning of the year I posted a video on Facebook of me attending hands down the worse spin class ever, over 70,000 people watched me ranting about bike seat sore booty but cutting a very long story short my friend Fiona saw said video and popped me a message inviting me to another class and promised me it would change my life. She wasn’t wrong.
Kaya was the teacher at this class and that was our first connection. Click here to read the full review.
Kaya was incredible! She literally made me feel so liberated and so excited..and yes this was all whilst exercising!
The thing I noticed about Kaya was that even though I was excercising (my most favourite thing to do ever 😒) she had this infectious positivity and I could not stop smiling. I almost felt ovehelemed with emotion because she made me feel so incredible with every word that she said.
I left the class and didn’t get a chance to talk to her and was asking my friend if she knew much about her. She told me Kaya was amazing (I obviously knew that now!) and that she had overcome a lot to be the positive inspiring person she is.
I was desperate to know more about her and went home to frantically stalk Instagram so I could find her. I started talking to my husband about it and was going on and on about ‘this amazing instructor’ at Psycle London. Trevor (who was actually listening for once) said ‘I know a girl who works there! Her names Kaya’ …my face (you can imagine) was a mix between elated because now I had a chance of contacting her and then a little bit psycho wondering how the F*ck he knew her! 😂
It transpires that they went to school together! I mean seriously…WHAT ARE THE ODDS! They are friends on FB and with a friend request and a few messages later and I was connected to Kaya.
She is everything I imagined her to be and more and with every post I read and every message we sent it pressed on my heart that I needed to have her at this event. She is exactly my guests needed, she was exactly what I needed.
Words won’t describe how perfect this has turned out for me and the universe truly knew that myself and Kaya had to connect to deliver what we plan to at this event. I am truly honoured that Kaya has agreed to be apart of #MyFatFunnyJourney .
I asked Kaya to write a little bit about her for the event and again – she didn’t disappoint. Here is what Kaya had to say…
‘I’m ALL about the good vibes and am a big advocate for self love and self worth, I truly believe thats why I am here, to pass on what I have learnt through life and promote the importance of self love. The most important relationship we have is with ourselves so lets look inwards, not outwards, embrace who we are and our vulnerability and spread it like wildfire, together ❤’
