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!

Change Your Habits Tap into Your Potential

We all form habits as we go through life. Yoga teaches us that even our good habits keep us from growing spiritually. This is because habits are by definition an attachment to a pattern of behavior, or a form of dependence. So a key principle of yoga is to break our both our mental and physical attachments. This includes not just our attachments to material objects (like needing chocolate to be happy), but also attachments to only seeing things in one way or repeating the same thoughts over and over expecting a different result, which by the way is the textbook definition of insanity. Yoga gives us a chance to examine our behavioral patterns and realize that our habits, even the good ones, keep us stuck. Only then can we begin to break those attachments to allow true spiritual transformation to begin.

Alex Levin puts it like this, “habits allow us to not think about what we’re doing . . . giving us the illusion of ease. When we are under the illusion of ease, not thinking about what we’re doing. Breathing the same old way, moving the same old way, thinking the same old way we check out of the present, out of happiness itself.”

This constant alchemical experimentation allows you to find your best Yoga. The yoga that teaches it is possible to change the old paradigm and instead choose happiness in a new way every day.

You change your habits and all of sudden you see yourself, your potential, your life in a whole new way. And the changes we experience in how we think go with us way beyond class. The ripples are deep, extraordinary and long-lasting.

This is what lies at the heart of the best Yoga teachers. They want to help facilitate this #AlchemyofYoga, the changes that YOU want in your life. And I am convinced we can make amazing transformations a three week 200 hour teacher training with the right facilitation and support.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life, Silvia Mordini

What is Biggest Surprise about Yoga Teacher Training

The biggest surprise about #yogateachertraining?
How emotional it is.

The #alchemyofyoga is the art of self-discovery which demands us to show up and face our truth. This is emotional.

YTT is a whole lot less about the flexibility in your Asana and so much more about mental flexibility.
.
If you’re a little afraid. That’s good! That honesty will make this experience life changing. Walk in and face #ganesha heart open.

The only way is thru.

❤️What is #AlchemyofYoga?
Chapter 2:1 of the Yoga Sutras sets forth how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works: “Tapas svadyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga,” which is translated to mean that yoga helps us transform our #HAPPINESS on three levels: Mental Alchemy, Physical Alchemy, Spiritual Alchemy.

Alchemy of Yoga’s Heart Medicine Scholarship

Alchemy of Yoga is whole-heartedly devoted to the art of self-study. When a yogi feels called to step into the deeper world of self-study, we never wish for finances to impede this path.

A 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training requires a significant investment on several levels — not only the financial consideration, but also the commitment of time + resources.

The investment is in yourself and it yields transformation on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual planes.

Alchemy of Yoga is unique from other teacher training programs in that it goes way beyond mastering yoga poses. While you will learn a great deal about asana, it is truly a journey in self-discovery. The role of Silvia Mordini and the rest of the Alchemy team is to provide the inspiration into this self-inquiry and hold space for your growth in a way that is true to your authenticity.
