What’s a Dosha?

What’s a Dosha?

#Ayurvedic philosophy is grounded in the belief that the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) manifest in everything. These 5 elements are expressed in 3 Doshas which are a combination of 2 elements:

Vata = Ether and Air
Pitta = Fire and Water
Kapaha = Earth and Water

Join me #AlchemyofYoga YTT #teachertraining and learn how this #alchemy of #earth #water #fire #air #ether impact your life.

Each person has a unique combination of Doshas from the time of conception. Each Dosha has characteristics that manifest physically, mentally and emotionaly in our bodies. Ayurveda strives to balance these Doshas using a combination of lifestyle choices and diet.

Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training Program

There are many variables when choosing a teacher training program in general and even more so as a destination program in places like Bali or Costa Rica.

  • History of Program. How long has this program been offered?
  • Duration. How long does the program last? What works best for you, shorter length like 3 weeks and more intense study or longer period of 9 months or something in between.
  • Location. Where do you want to live while immersed in self-study that will serve you best. How will you be the least distracted? Living at home or a residential destination program?
  • Mission of School. Are you in alignment with the overall mission of what the yoga school offers? What is the overall teaching intention for the program?
  • Type of Yoga. Are you interested in only the asana and not meditation, mantra, or other sacred  practices (including energy medicine.) Choose wisely so it meets your expectations.
  • Size of Program. Do you learn best as one of 200 students, 40 students or fewer than 20?

Most of all think about what it is YOU want out of the program? 

ABOUT ALCHEMY OF YOGA:
If you want to only know how to practice and teach triangle pose then there are other programs that excel at that. If you are interested in your OWN self-development, for the best teachers are those that know their authentic selves, then we are a great fit! We have 11 years of history in offering our program 21 times. We continue to improve our accelerated learning methods to help our tribe members grow most easily.

Our focus is YOU. Not so much triangle pose.

We concentrate on the People part of our program. Of course you’ll get the techniques but its really the difference between emphasizing the person doing the pose or the pose itself as more important than the person. We choose YOU.

OVERVIEW OF ALCHEMY OF YOGA
1. EARTH: Foundational Alchemy – Rooting into Yourself & Manifestation
2. WATER: Emotional Alchemy – Tapping into Your Potential and Living in Possibility
3. FIRE: Physical Alchemy – Discovering Your Optimal Performance
4. AIR: Mental Alchemy – Unlearning the Obstacles to Your Happiness
5. ETHER: Spiritual Alchemy –Transformation into Living & Teaching Yoga

WHY CHOOSE ALCHEMY OF YOGA? We are Soulful & Sensitive
Alchemy of Yoga is unique from other teacher training programs. While you will learn a great deal about intelligent alignment and how to teach asana safely, our self-development program is first and foremost a journey in self-discovery. You will learn how to unblock the obstacles to your happiness by tapping into your greatest potential and living from your highest self.

How to Live an INSPIRED Life: Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, we will explore the vast resources related to How to Live an INSPIRED Life by focusing on the last three Niyamas or personal practices that comprise the Alchemy of Yoga. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

What are you? What am I? Intersecting cycles of water, earth, air and fire, that’s what I am, that’s what you are.

‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬ 200HR Yoga Teacher Training with Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

WATER — blood, lymph, mucus, sweat, tears, inner oceans tugged by the moon, tides within and tides without. Streaming fluids floating our cells, washing and nourishing through endless riverways of gut and vein and capillary. Moisture pouring in and through and out of you, of me, in the vast poem of the hydrological cycle. You are that. I am that.

EARTH — matter made from rock and soil. It too is pulled by the moon as the magma circulates through the planet heart and roots suck molecules into biology. Earth pours through us, replacing each cell in the body every seven years. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, we ingest, incorporate and excrete the earth, are made from earth. I am that. You are that.

AIR — the gaseous realm, the atmosphere, the planet’s membrane. The inhale and the exhale. Breathing out carbon dioxide to the trees and breathing in their fresh exudations. Oxygen kissing each cell awake, atoms dancing in orderly metabolism, interpenetrating. That dance of the air cycle, breathing the universe in and out again, is what you are, is what I am.

FIRE — Fire, from our sun that fuels all life, drawing up plants and raising the waters to the sky to fall again replenishing. The inner furnace of your metabolism burns with the fire of the Big Bang that first sent matter-energy spinning through space and time. And the same fire as the lightning that flashed into the primordial soup catalyzing the birth of organic life. Gaia Meditation by #‎JohnSeed‬ and ‪#‎JoannaMacy‬
