AWAKE

AWAKE

Life is full of beauty.
I am a lifelong moment gatherer and beauty finder. It’s my nature to see the world around me with the eyes of my heart. Each day I ride my scooter in #Bali looking to collect as many beautiful visions as possible.

To be honest 99% of the beauty I discover I choose not to capture in a photo. I keep these treasures in my heart to share in conversation rather than in media.
I like to think if we are all paying attention to the beauty around us, we will always have the most amazing conversations. We can share our stories. ❤️
.
All that is required is that you purposely notice everything and everyone around you. I promise you’ll never run out of beauty to celebrate. 🙏
.
Just today I saw #smiles #frog #humblerice #fruitstand #jackfruit#frangipani #flowers #coconut #palmtrees #ceremony #pool #peace #blue#happiness
.
This is me on my scooter just living life awake. 😍

I don’t want to miss a thing! ❤️

3 REASONS WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CHANGES YOUR LIFE

3 REASONS WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CHANGES YOUR LIFE
.
Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for 200 hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives & expanding their consciousness into radical authenticity. The result is something beyond words. It is, as best as I can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga at its best. Chapter 2 verse 1 of the Yoga Sutras sets forth how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works. “Tapas svadhyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga.” Translated to mean that yoga helps us transform ourselves on three levels:
1. Physical Alchemy
2. Mental Alchemy
3. Spiritual Alchemy
.
You see when you get together in a Teacher Training #Tribe we are all like the Alchemist in his/her laboratory mixing ingredients. For us as yogis our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, our poses, our breath, our thoughts and the mixing it all together creates a different result every time. A Teacher Training Program changes your life. You wake up to the power you have to go into the laboratory of your life experience and mix the potions you want to create your best life going forward!
.
Here are 3 Reasons Why Yoga Teacher Trainings Change Your Life (and it’s Alchemy):
.
1. TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS FASTER…Something extraordinary happens while in a yoga teacher training program that breaks the bonds of ordinary awareness and expands the consciousness of each individual to a level that would otherwise would have taken years of ordinary living to attain. This acceleration of evolution is mystical, meaning that the explanation of the change is beyond logic and reason. The term from quantum physics,“quantum leap”, comes to mind. A quantum leap means “a phenomena where an electron orbiting the nucleus of an atom changes its position without having traversed the space between its old and new orbit and without taking any time to do so. As scientifically verifiable as this phenomena is, it is also on the order of a miracle, for science has no explanation how this effect happens.” This experience of waking up to the power of your own transformation fires you up to change the world. As Sri Swami Satchidananda says, “Yoga believes in transforming the individual before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to happen outside should happen within. If you walk in peace and express that peace in your very life, others will see you and learn something.” In a teacher training tribe you are learning at a faster rate exponentially. You feed off of one another’s passion and it makes everyone burn brighter. You are constantly being built up to reach higher into your best potentiality.
.
2. SELF-REFLECTION LEADS TO SELF-EXPRESSION…Self-Study known as svadhaya is really the heart of yoga. A 200‐hour program offers you a unique opportunity to make a deep commitment to learning more about yourself. The entire training community provides you honest, loving support from day one with complete inclusivity. Training programs are a safe haven: a nurturing sanctuary to engage in open‐minded self‐exploration. Teacher trainings are devoted to offering you an atmosphere in which freedom of self-expression, creativity, and passion for life are totally encouraged! In the 8‐limbed path of Yoga in order to effectively teach using your most authentic voice you can only teach what you know about yourself. Being a dedicated student of yoga for your own self study will help you learn better ways to take care of yourself. And once you know how to self-comfort you are able to express who you are into the world in a dynamic yet unpretentious way.
.
3. BREAK OLD HABITS...By taking a break from your daily life, unplugging from the pulls and pushes of technology and engaging in healthy activity (tapas) and conversation (self-study) while in the container of a teacher training program you are in an excellent environment to release unwanted habits. Some of these habits include detoxing the physical body through a lot of moving and breathing. You’ll do a lot of yoga poses! The letting go of mental bonds and ego provides an emotional transformation of surrender. When we surrender and feel safe then healing begins. Once relaxed we can see our old emotional paradigms emerge and the unhealthy mental habits which have formed as samskaras. From there the Spiritual Alchemy resets the internal dialogue to one of trusting the forward flow of grace. Also there is something very powerful about surrounding yourself with people who don’t know the encyclopedia of your past. They see you as you really are and your potential for greatness. This helps to reinforce your willingness to change for the better. Even upon finishing a teacher training program life long friendships are formed with like minded people who will support your growth and your new lifestyle choices. They will continue to support your spiritual maturity to show up fully and let go completely.

ABOUT SILVIA MORDINI, Writer, Happiness Coach, Love Alchemist
.
My area of expertise is as a connector. I am an enthusiastic friend gatherer who loves to discuss breathing, yoga psychology, poetry, music, movement, books, travel and philosophy. And I am a long-time love anthropologist and student of life. I am open to all suggestions and enjoy meeting interesting people, spiritual seekers, soul surfers and anyone who wants to hang out. I am especially interested in people who make me laugh and those who laugh at my quirky sense of humor.
.
My parents, Mama and Papa, inspired my love of movement and travel, saying that I learned to ski before I learned to walk. I stayed active with tennis, swim team, cycling, hiking, running, pom poms, and dance squad. But even with all that activity, travel has been my greatest influence and my first love. My Father, Enrico, was a pure adventurer and my Mother’s parents were serious spiritual seekers and healers. I grew up traveling all over the world with my brother and parents. That I love to show others the beauty of the world through Yoga Workshops and destination Yoga Retreats and @alchemyofyoga #teachertrainings shouldn’t be a surprise, since I was born in Ecuador and my Father is from Northern Italy, and English is my third language. So really my first yoga was travel. I learned how to connect to people and find the union between us. What we all have in common is the ability to laugh, to look for the good in any situation, and to choose love.
.
With over 11,000 hours of yoga teaching experience I make yoga approachable and inspiring for everyone. My focus is on bringing more fun to yoga with the hope that how we practice our yoga becomes how we live our life. As an Experienced Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and a lifelong athlete, singer, dancer, poet and adventurer, my style of yoga is Bhakti infused Alignment based Vinyasa flow. I’ve been practicing yoga over the last 15 years after being run over by a car as a pedestrian and using it to recover physically and emotionally. I have owned a successful and well-loved yoga studio for 10 years.

The First Ten Minutes are the MOST Important

Walter Mosley writes, “Every day we wake up is a good day. Every breath that we take is filled with hope for a better day, Every word that we speak is a chance to change what is bad into something good.” If you are waking up dreading the day, worried about the hours ahead of you and already wishing you could be done with it and back in bed, well, that’s a problem. The first thing we grasp upon awakening shouldn’t be our blackberry or i-device, it should be the most positive thought that guides our dharma. This singular thought, since our conscious brain can only hold one at a time, inspires the quality of the rest of our day through sheer enthusiasm. And yoga teaches us that what you spend the energy of your thoughts focused upon grows bigger.

DSCF9803The first ten minutes of your day are the most important. Whether you lay there and choose a mantra or positive affirmation, or make a point NOT to reach for your iPhone and check email it sets the course for the kind of energy you will attract. Manage your own mind as if your mind was a computer and you were setting up the OS to run in the background all day. We do that to make the computer run more smoothly. We can do that to make ourselves harness the power of our thoughts.

My routine is to say to myself upon waking: I love myself, I am love, I offer love, I receive love. Then I sit up and meditate 11-30 minutes. I can feel from that the most important thoughts I want to lead my day with from there.

And in the words of Robin Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, “You will wake up every morning with a limitless reservoir of energy and enthusiasm. All your thoughts will be focused on your definite objective. You won’t have time to waste time. Valuable mental power will, therefore, not be wasted on trifling thoughts. You will automatically erase the worry habit and become far more effective and productive. Interestingly, you will also have a deep sense of inner harmony, as if you are somehow being guided to realize your mission. It is a wonderful feeling.”

May I Marry You?

Dear Beloveds for the last 10 years I’ve been a celebrant, able to conduct legal marriage ceremonies. I specialize in crafting spiritual weddings for nontraditional couples.
 
One of the most important initation rituals you can experience as an adult is your wedding IMG_4153ceremony. The day will have 24 hours just like any other day. The most important part will be your wedding ceremony for it will “initiate” you into the sacredness of your marriage to one another. This is a Rite of Passage moving you from single to married. Through the exchange of your vows you will be launched into your promise to love, repect and cherish each other.
 
The perfect ceremony strikes the balance between personal expression and tradition. I recommend that you as a couple put your signature on the ceremony in the content and feeling but work within a basic ceremony structure. I will help you make your ceremony unique but not complicated. It’s also been my experience that the most enjoyable ceremonies for a couple are those that are simple and not overly long.
 
On your wedding day what I want most for the both of you is to be present to one another, breathe in every moment and express your joy. This day is your celebration. It is about you and for you. Have fun! May you and your marriage be blessed in all ways, always.
 
All my love,
Silvia Mordini
 
I will be available in Bali March 15-April 10; Tuscany, Italy April 10-June 30, Costa Rica July 21-Aug 30, USA Sept-Dec. And I am happy to travel to where you are too. Email silvia@silviamordini.com

The Power of Yoga and Writing by Silvia Mordini on Wanderlust

“Yoga stretches our mind muscle and teaches us how to connect with ourselves and accept the sense things make or make sense of things. Journaling gives us insight into our held patterns of behavior, thoughts, and feelings that may have kept us from experiencing our full potentiality or seeing things clearly. When we can’t make sense of things we restrict ourselves from uniting with our own true nature, joy!”

– Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach
