I’ve had massive energetic shifts and awakenings recently and I wanted to share an aspect of life, of experiencing Earth school that is a top key for embodying your greatest power, and that is to really let yourself feel the feelings. Your first thought might be “I totally do! I do that already.” and while you might be letting yourself feel to some degree, many times our habits and patterns of numbing or distracting ourselves so we don’t have to feel certain ways comes from our subconscious. And it is only after you really let yourself become aware and see... Get the full story


Earlier this year SERENE created a wellness pop up at BANDIER in NYC, a space in the city where we were all encouraged to slow down in the city buzz! I got to travel to NYC for the first time ever. I came to see the vibe and get a feel for what is going on across the pond. I left a week later amazed, inspired and feeling like I needed to move there immediately! One of my greatest moments that week and something that will stay with me for a long time was attending a yoga class taught by... Get the full story


Grief doesn’t flow in a linear manner, nor does it pre-warn you. No, grief hits you in the face like nothing else, and you can’t hide from it. It can come unexpectedly, anywhere and at any moment and when it does you cannot hold it in. It has only been two weeks since my mother passed away, and I missing her more and more every single day. In the beginning I was just a bystander in a safe bubble. I watched people cry and wasn’t fully aware of what was going on. But now, the painful realisation that my mama... Get the full story


The paradox of life coaching is that your coach needs coaching just as much as you do. I learned that a few weeks ago when I took part in Handel Group’s Design Your Life Weekend. It wasn’t something that was expressly stated, rather it was embodied by our head coach Laurie Gerber. She made it perfectly clear that she is an imperfect being and indirectly invited us to accept our own imperfections by being so unapologetically Laurie. There is so much to say about what I learned and how I felt in my 2 day foray into The Handel Method,... Get the full story

​A few months ago I started hearing about Biet Simkin, one of the coolest up-an-coming meditation guides and voices coming out of NYC. I was intrigued by her style and the unique way that she connected to art, music and meditation. So when I was connected to her via email, I knew that I needed to take the chance to have a real dialogue about meditation. Below are snipets of our e-conversation: ​Millana: ​A couple of years ago I had a life changing spiritual experience, for a few months that followed meditation was terrifying because I would go very deep,...

Our friends at Bella Kinesis are starting a new campaign called “Give it Another Go” focused on encouraging women who have been discouraged by early life attempts at sportiness in school to try again…to give it another go!  I can relate to this – in high school I told myself I was terrible at basketball but recently played a game just for fun and had a blast!  We put so much pressure on ourselves as young people to be the best or be talented right away when having fun and being healthy should be the focus!  Bella Kinesis are having a...
