About Afsha and Bloom   arrow

Afsha MalikHi, my name is Afsha, the Slow Coach! I am here to assist you in perfecting the art of “slow”. I love to use gentle movement, massage, breath work and sound vibrations to help you relax and befriend your nervous system. The body is self-healing and learning how to slow down will take it into a state of healing

 I founded Bloom to promote long term health through a gentle,balanced heart-based approach to wellness focusing on positive mindsets and self-awareness.

My career in fitness has always been about constantly striving for balance and energy  in life through movement.  My approach is wholistic, health and energy based.I am mostly interested in how to use movement to make my own life and the lives of my students better and to improve the physical experience of life. To me, movement and exercise enables a change that allows living a more balanced, compassionate and fulfilling life.

At Bloom the focus is on creating an environment of balance in the body and mind, which then enables the body to do what it does best – HEAL.

I have expanded into Sound and Vibration Therapy (tuning forks) and  Oriental hand and face massage. Both these therapies work on the energetic and fascial aspects of the body.

I created Bloom to be a motivational, educational and advisory package all in one.I work with indivduals and organisations to empower people either through education.
