CAN YOU LIVE YOUR NAMASTE?

CAN YOU LIVE YOUR NAMASTE?

By Silvia Mordini

We must Namaste everyone!  My parents had my brother and I traveling from the time we were newborns to places all over the world. From that experience I learned that everyone is fundamentally alike.  Regardless of geography people all want the same things:  we want to be happy, loved and peaceful.

As a result, even before I knew yoga, I was trying my best to “Live my Namaste”.  

Now, as in then, this requires recognizing that all people deserve respect.  In effect if we are living our Namaste it means we are unlocking the love and respect in our hearts to include everyone. Isn’t the whole point of yoga to see not that which divides us but that which brings us together?

So what does Namaste mean? Well, “Nama” means bow, “as” means I, and “te” means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means “bow me you” or “I bow to you.”  It is a gesture of pure compassion and recognition: that we bow to the true self inside each one of us. To me Namaste is harmony, remembrance and respect.

Namaste as a harmony:  It strikes the perfect chord.  Having grown up in a musical family and having played piano and clarinet for 13 years I have always felt music was a blessing of realizing harmony.  Yoga like being in a chorus or a band or any sort of tribe helps us to work together as a beautiful symphony.  We feel this symphony of the body when we practice poses (asanas).  And just like playing a musical instrument the more yoga you practice the more efficient you get.  Over time you feel the harmonies.  No single player more important but everyone is equally important. This is a nondualistic view of life where we acknowledge that everyone is valuable in their own way and we all contribute to make wonderful music.

Namaste as remembrance:  Wolfgang Von Goethe writes, “Remembrance of what is good keeps us high in spirit. Remembrance of what is beautiful is the salvation of the mortal man. Remembrance of what is dear will be happiness, if it remains alive.”  In class, or even by yourself, when you unite your hands palms touching think to yourself Namaste and it helps us remember to remember how amazing life is!

Namaste as respect: It is a respect for our breath, for the preciousness of life itself.  When we share this with another we are demonstrating that we are one, engaged with this breath despite our diversity. A great example of this definition is found on Wikipedia.

Namaste from Wikipedia, freely adapted and edited

We can perceive the unique thread that connects us all with the Universe, and all its Beings along with the source of that interconnection. Accepting Oneness, we are accordingly receptive to knowledge that comes to us in the form of examples, advice, and direct teaching. One may awake to the wisdom that opens our eyes to new worlds of possibilities.

When we assume everyone we meet is special and unique in its essence we should always show to all people the same generous level of kindness, care, compassion, and understanding without any thoughts of self-interest or ulterior motives above paying respects wholeheartedly, the way we live our daily lives has an enormous impact on those around us.

Instead of clinging to what separates us, Practicing Namaste enables us to feel less alone in the world. We begin to understand that we must treat all people for what they are, family. We are one with the cosmos whether we realize it or not. Practicing ONENESS we gain consciousness of the more subtle aspects of our being, with the ultimate outcome being a complete identification with the light body.”

In order to live our Namaste we must come together to Namaste everyone. It is not just something we say before or after yoga class, it is a way of living life with a deep intention of respect, remembrance and appreciation that promotes harmony in the whole of the world. Love yourself, love your day, love and Namaste your life! Silvia

Love is All You Need Alchemy of Yoga

The truth is picking a yoga teacher training program is hard. There are now so many program to choose from. This isn’t a bad thing, there is a perfect program for you. I have always been clear alchemy of yoga isn’t looking for everyone. My intention is to selectively seek those who I can help, those I can inspire. Let me tell you about the program because I don’t want you to wonder if this is the program for you, I want you to be enthusiastic in choosing alchemy of yoga FOR YOU.

If you resonate with yoga as more than just the physical practice. Yes there is Physical Alchemy absolutely you will gain knowledge to instruct the poses and pranayama. But there is also Mental Alchemy, this ability to remove the obstacles to your happiness. Finally, there is also Spiritual Alchemy, and this program unashamedly admits to being “spiritual.”

So if anything I say in this video resonates and peaks your interest then lets explore the possibility together. So if you’re still wondering…

1. Is Alchemy of Yoga for ME?
2. Are we a good fit?
3. Is now the right time?
4. Is this the right destination?
5. Am I ready? 

Yes if Authenticity and JOYFUL self-confidence in living your Dharma sparks joy because that is “what Alchemy of Yoga offers you.”

3 Minute Meditation to Set Intention

The sound track to this video uploaded yesterday is a 3 Minute Meditation to Set Intention
.
Consider how you want to live?
Take a few moments to ask yourself “what is my intention for today?”
.
Take a moment to think of your intention as an internal sense of direction. Find it in your body and quiet your mind. Next bring your thoughts to that place of inspiration and possibility, your intention like a magnet drawing to you all the opportunities, teachers, support and anything else you may need to achieve the outcome you seek.
.
#Manifest your BEST Life. Live with Intention.

I hope you enjoy this new video 🙂 And if yoga teacher training is one of your intentions then feel into it.

I See You

I see you.
You see me.
We are #onelove
.
The beauty of namaste. I see you and you see me and together we can be our possibility. 🙏
.
One of my greatest joys is to make the invisible world visible. To feel or hear the whispering of another persons heart and see their ideas as real. To live with faith in the potential you have to bring forth that which is forming and make it visible. To believe in what others can’t yet see. And when I share what I know and someone recognizes the purity of my intention and sees me as real, I feel blessed.

What I do to Prepare to Teach my 27th Yoga Teacher Training

2 words: Fast-twitch Muscles.

I offered my first Yoga Teacher Training in 2005. This is my fourteenth year living out my dharma in this beautiful way. And tonight I am editing the 27th version of our alchemy of yoga teacher training manual. I’ve not spent this much time enhancing, evolving, growing, improving anything else as much as I have this program. It is the culmination of my life’s work.
.
Behind the scenes in preparation for our April 1-22, 2018 Bali Teacher Training is a team of amazing Soul Sisters on line every day creating, answering emails, clarifying, discussing, deciding every single part of what is an incredibly curated experience of Sacred Learning. Without @emilyperryyoga and @ferrahchinoyoga along with what feels like life long support from Christina Russo, and contributions for years from Laura Hand and Sarah Erter none of this is possible. As well as the technical upgrade on our NEW www.alchemyofyoga.com website developed by #alchemyofyoga alumni Greg Love owner, founder of www.anydev.com
.
What you may not know is before every teacher training I take a look at how old everybody is that’s attending, which this time ranges from 23 years old to 58 years old, pretty typical for our program. And every year as the 23 year old or even twenty year old engages their personal hero’s journey in this program I get a year older. Therefore I have to personally work harder to go through what I call “Yoga Teacher Conditioning”. Each year for the last 13 years I have to do more to prepare physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I am right now in training to give my all as a Teacher Trainer.
.
I love it because I want to give my best to everyone that has put their trust in me to fly across the world for this is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in places like Bali and #CostaRica. I take this responsibility very seriously. And it is the greatest honor of my life. Each student I have the joy of spending 200 hours with I hold in my heart forever.
.
In these days of corporate #yoga and Yoga Influencers with 1 million instagram followers and big budget sponsorships I don’t have any of that.
.
What I have is experience, 26 graduated classes of Love Alchemists endeavoring to live out our Mission to #teachpeace to a world that needs it more than ever. This teacher training/mystery school is an offering of love from my heart to your heart to the heart of the universe.
.
And yes this is my #Yogi #Spin bike with two #malas and some OM energy as I get stronger and stronger to be the crucible and hold space for 24 beloved members of our kula in 10 days.
.
I love my #dharma and I love this life!

The Four Agreements for Happiness

“The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves”
Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz serves as a foundational philosophy for creating authenticity, love, and happiness in your life as you step into the seat of awareness. In practice, these seemingly simple agreements have far-reaching implications that serve as a lens to our thought patterns & behavioral processes as you study the self. In essence, the agreements help you “break those agreements that come from fear & deplete our lives” while engaging in the active process of lifelong transformation. Not coincidentally, these principles align beautifully with yoga philosophy as a complementary practice founded in self-love.

The Four Agreements CHANGED MY LIFE.  It is a quick yet deeply insightful read that you are bound to revisit — each time revealing increased clarity as you move through the waves of life. The book is on the required reading list for my alchemy of yoga teacher training program because I believe in it so much. The Four Agreements can be purchased new or used for under $10 on amazon.com, otherwise check your library!
