Releasement Ceremony to Let Go

Blessings on this Full Moon.

In lunar ceremony last night in the largest sister circle I’ve ever been a part of we were asked to partner with someone and share what we are releasing to the Full Moon. My sister and I dropped in to the depths of our souls in seconds. We shared profound desires to dissolve obstacles to our happiness. We gazed into one another’s eyes and took turns holding space so we would each be seen. Letting Go to release old patterns isn’t easy, but together with over a hundred women we supported one another to surrender to the fire that which no longer serves us. Aho. Namaste.

Some of my Let Go List I share here:

I let go of the need to know why things happen.

I let go of what I don’t want.

I let go of repressed emotions.

I let go of the need to know the outcome.

I let go of the need to be needed.

I let go of extreme self sacrifice.

I let go of holding back.

I let go of being angry.

I let go for my need for approval.

I let go of displacement.

I let go of numbing out.

I let go of the details.

I let go of fitting in.

I let go of over controlling.

I let go of my worry.

I let go of my fear.

I let go of my guilt.

I let go of blame.

I let go of my resistance.

I let go of frustration.

I let go of negative thoughts.

I let go of needing to be acknowledged.

I let go of insecurity.

I let go of the old dominant story.

I let go of not being good enough.

I let go of the pain.

Slow Down

Ask yourself, what would taking really good care of myself look like today?
.
#HappinessRx: Your soul talks to you every day, but if you’re too busy, you can’t hear what it’s trying to say.

Listen closely and try these 5 tips to love your life more.
1. Slow down.
2. Practice taking 5 deep breaths right now.
3. Hold a glass of water in both your hands until the water becomes perfectly still. Then drink the water imagining it’s filling your body with stillness and peace.
4. Practice savasana. Only savasana as your yoga today.
5. Meditate on love. Saying to yourself slowly “I love myself, I am love, I am loved.”
.
Instead of choosing with your mind, try SOULECTING select with your soul.
Your soul always has you on easy speed. It wants you to be present and live #mindfullyinlove 💕

It’s easy to ignore the signs of going too fast. The sleeplessness can be pushed aside, at least for a while. The increasing anxiety remedied by numbing out or ignoring it seems to work for bit, until it doesn’t. The aches and pains, waking up and feeling worried already. These are no normal ways to experience life. These are your body’s way of saying SLOW DOWN. All we have to do is pay attention.

Get off the treadmill and get back on the natural pace of life. Relearn how to relax and just be with what is happening around you without needing it to go faster. You’ll find out it’s the remedy to love yourself, love your day and love your life!

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.

Passion Passport for Bali September 2018

Keep growing in Bali Sept 1-22, 2018!

RYT 200 hour @alchemyofyoga #yogateachertraining ✨

“Growing is the most important and essential endeavor that a human being can undertake. You can make money, you can be promoted or demoted in the world. Never, at any stage, is there certainty about what will happen to you in this life. However, there is one thing nobody can ever take away from you-the growth you attain through your own search for Self-knowledge. Furthermore, this growth and understanding become the foundation that sustains you through any and all worldly difficulties, and that allows you-whatever the form of your physical experience- to find in life a continuously unbroken flow of total well-being.”
— Swami Chetanananda

There’s Always a Story Change and Rebirth

“There’s always a story. It’s all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything’s got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.” -Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
.
The story 3 years and 14 weeks ago started as “I have to just keep going because I have no choice.”
I’ve inherited a mess. The explosion from the bomb being dropped in my life wasn’t my fault. I have to.
At some point I believed this story so much I convinced myself this was temporary. One month turned into one year and finally last year I stopped believing this story.
.
And so I changed it.
.
I quit.
.
Or at least I planned to quit as of today 30 June. 
.
Quitting felt like control. And so it was. But last new Moon to this #fullmoon I realized I could drop the old story and I didn’t have to quit it all, especially the parts that feel most like me.
.
I just have more work to do to tidy up the messiness so I can have closure on that part. Then I begin again.
.
This is me working on my 2019 Schedule yesterday here at Fattoria Lavacchio in my “office”.

THE Next Step to Growing Your Yoga Business

The Business of Yoga Retreats

Do you want to be paid to travel the world while changing people’s lives?

Does this sound like you? Travelpreneur, Yogapreneur, Wanderluster, Adventurer? Do you have a desire to change people’s lives (making a quantum leap in health and happiness) and have a burning message to share? Yes you can do what you love and get paid for it and get out of the studio taking your yoga on the road. Let me help you create your own business, control your income and have more freedom. I want to see you travel the world, change lives, and make a fabulous income.

The truth is not all Yoga Retreats are created equal. When I started leading retreats almost ten years ago, there were few others doing so. In the years since, the yoga marketplace is now chock full of yoga retreat options. Yoga retreats have become an increasingly competitive business. Before you lead a Yoga Retreat, here is the training you need to make it an easeful success for both you and your clients. Expect practical tools and a step by step approach to designing and promoting sold-out retreats. I’ll give you the inside track to creating a sustainable yoga business for yourself for years to come. Join me and learn how to take the next step to growing your Yoga Business.

About how I came to inspire others to embrace Travel & Movement.

Which came first? Travel or movement?

For me it would be travel although from an early age my parents tell me I could ski before I could walk, I danced formally and for the pleasure of it, and I was always doing something active Tennis, Swim team, Biking, Hiking, Running. But even so travel was my greater influence and first love. My Father, Enrico, was at heart a pure adventurer and my Mother’s parents were serious spiritual seekers.

I grew up traveling all over the world with my brother and parents from the time I was an infant. I guess the fact that I love to show other people the beauty of the world through Yoga Retreats and Active Vacations shouldn’t surprise anyone since I was born in Ecuador, South America and my Father is from Northern Italy near Modena, and English was my third language.

One could say being a citizen of the world is in my blood. And I learned from my Father, this spirit of Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha, to dream the impossible. I saw with my own eyes, touched and tasted new flavors, experienced new landscapes and as a result I learned about myself. Every time I traveled somewhere I came back different, I was changed and knew that anything was possible.

Do you know what you Desire?

“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”
#PauloCoelho #Alchemist
.
Ego Eradicator has been one of the most transformative exercises I practice from #Kundalini. It reminds me to meet my ego over and over. It serves me to see that I am the one doing the action but I am co-creating as a vehicle of the action as well as not getting attached to the outcome.
.
.
“You have the right to action,” says the Bhagavad Gita, “but not to the results of action.”
.
.
#EgoEradicator Posture Description:
This posture can be done in either easy pose or sitting on the heels.
.
Straighten the spine, pull in the chin and apply neck lock.
.
Lift the arms up in the air with a 60 degree angle between them, keeping the elbows completely straight.
.
Curl the fingers of both hands with the fingertips touching the pads at the tops of the of the palm, stretch the thumbs upward, pulling the thumb up and back – a yogic thumbs up sign. Point the thumbs inward and at a slight angle so that you could draw an arc above the head from thumb to thumb.
