MY YOGA ONLINE: 5 REASONS SURFING IS THE PERFECT PRACTICE FOR YOGIS

MY YOGA ONLINE: 5 REASONS SURFING IS THE PERFECT PRACTICE FOR YOGIS

Thank you to my friends at My Yoga Online for publishing. Here is full article:

http://www.myyogaonline.com/healthy-living/personal-development/5-reasons-surfing-is-the-perfect-practice-for-yogis

I am a lifelong adventure seeker. As a child I wanted to live in the water and was always looking for my next fix. I was born in July under the water sign of Cancer, so my thirst for the deep blue came naturally. Further inspired by my parents’ love of water while growing up, I participated in any and all water related activities (the swim team, SUP, Boogie Boarding, and Snorkeling, to name a few).

In comparison to my lifelong love of water, my yoga practice is about 17 years old. I spent the first seven years of my practice solely dedicated to yoga and perfecting my craft, but then adventure came calling and a part of my personal and practice evolution changed to discovering new ways of practicing yoga in outdoor environments.  

This led me back to water where I discovered that surfing was my yoga.

ABOUT OUR FREEDOM THEME FOR MY BALI YOGA RETREAT

ABOUT OUR FREEDOM THEME FOR MY BALI YOGA RETREAT

In many ways, attending a yoga retreat is always a type of overall learning experience. You have time to re-learn the bliss of relaxation, set mindful goals, and rest and renew your entire sense of well-being. This retreat also provides you an opportunity to share, have fun and connect with other like-minded people. We will be using the book Light on Life by BKS Iyengar as our guiding principles. You will receive a 35 page booklet complete with personal development, stress management, transformative journaling and intention setting. More than anything you will have the FREEDOM to reconnect with the true joy of being alive! For some this is a profound experience with a powerful spiritual connection. For others it is a feeling of upliftment; others just ‘feel better’ and more positive about the future. For some it gives them the strength to face things they have been putting off for too long. You re-learn your power of choice. And the positive effects of taking a break of this nature usually last long after the retreat is over, often for months or forever. Many guests make new and positive choices and life direction changes which have a profound influence on their lives. This is the one of the advantages of participating in this amazing retreat program. Take to heart the words of John Wood from the book “Leaving Microsoft to Change the World” who writes, “If you are thinking about making some adjustments in your life my heartfelt recommendation is not to spend too much time thinking about it. Just dive in.” REDISCOVER HEALING, HARMONY & HAPPINESS TODAY! Wishing you courage to do so! Love and peace, Silvia & Jake

‎”Happiness is really freedom from unhappiness.” (Immunity to Change)

What does FREEDOM mean to you?

FREEDOM means a number of things to me such as:

  • Freedom to be happier than ever before
  • Freedom to try new things
  • Freedom to meet new people
  • Freedom to make happy failures
  • Freedom to not play it all so safe
  • Freedom to do the unexpected
  • Freedom to just see what happens

What gets in the way of our freedom?

Primary Fears

Fears related to our willpower exist within each chakra appropriate to that chakra.

  1. We fear having no authority or power of choice within our own lives, first within our tribes, then within our personal and professional relationships.
  2. And then we fear having no authority with ourselves, being out of control when it comes to our responses to substances, to money, to power, to another person`s emotional control over our well being.
  3. And finally, we fear surrender. The notion of letting go.

The Consequences of Fear

  • The most costly energy consciousness comes from acting out of fear.
  • Even when choices made from fear lead us to what we desire, they generally also produce unwanted side effects.
  • These surprises teach us that choosing from fear transgresses our trust.
  • We do not have to follow the choices others make for us.

How to Prepare?

1. Set your intention to attend this transformational retreat

2. Register to save your spot

3. Book your flight

4. Read the Light on Life & The Alchemist by Paulo Cuehlo

5. Practice meditating 2 minutes per day to prepare for this retreat

6. Practice journaling once per week to prepare for this retreat

7. Get excited to #GrowYourHappy!

ARE YOU FEELING WIRED, TIRED, OR LOST?

ARE YOU FEELING WIRED, TIRED, OR LOST?

Namaste, Ciao, Aloha!
Are you feeling wired, tired, lost or a combination of wired and tired? We all get overwhelmed with too many to-do's forced upon us by the "should" habit and not enough time. You know the feeling, where you're physically exhausted by the effort but can't sleep because your mind is going a million miles an hour. 

Or perhaps you're in that place of "I don't know." We can help. It's what we do best. Once you recognize the blind spots you can revise your intentions. This will give you the focus you've been lacking. On retreat we will help you explore your growth edges, take risks in trying new things, meeting new people, going new places. We promise with all our love to playfully push you to "Stretch!"

Let's declutter together & let us take care of you! Our September retreats are perfect for you to recharge, regain purpose & fulfillment.

Ask yourself:
-What are the biggest sources of stress in your life right now?
-How do they affect you?
-What costs do you pay for keeping things the way they are?
-Why are you allowing it to be like this?
-What 1 change could you make in your daily life that would create less stress?

Let's remove the stresses making us wired and tired. And let's regain alignment with our purpose. You deserve it, now.

Live, Love, and Thrive!
Silvia & Jake, Alchemy Tours

ASTROLOGICAL MEANING OF DAYS OF THE WEEK

ASTROLOGICAL MEANING OF DAYS OF THE WEEK

Astrological Meaning of Days

  • Monday : The Moon Monday is a moon day, and so we are dealing with emotions, moods, intuition and the shadowy side of life. Many people report Monday as the most challenging day of the week. It's no wonder, as the moon carries with it erratic and sometimes unpredictable energy. We can counteract fast fluctuations in lunar energy by taking note of the phase of the moon every Monday. This lets our logical mind know "where we stand" in a metaphorical sense Best tasks for Mondays: Meditation, dream analysis, quiet time, personal indulgence, rest, relaxation, sleep. See more symbolic Moon meanings here.
  • Tuesday : Mars Mars is an aggressive planet. In fact, its namesake in Greek myth was the god of war. Tuesday is a driving force in the workweek, and will auger a sense of productivity, competition, effectiveness, determination and completion. With these kinds of energies in the forefront, Tuesday is the perfect day for finishing long overdue tasks. Conversely, Tuesday is also a great day to start new projects. Best tasks for Tuesdays: Building strategies at work and in career, acting on new ideas, starting new projects, cleaning out clutter, exercising, finishing to-do lists or catching up. Check out more Mars meanings here.
  • Wednesday : Mercury Mercury is the messenger of the heavens. It facilitates clear communication, and carries new information to our awareness in extremely precise and effective ways. Mercury also augers higher perception too. I love the synchronicity of Wednesday landing in the middle of the week because it gives a pervasive sense of connectivity. In a way, Wednesday is the vital communications link to all other days - it's like the network server of the week (to use computer terms). Best tasks for Wednesdays: Communication of course! Catch up on emails, thank you notes, letters, phone calls, etc. Wednesday is a good day to sign contracts (that is, if Mercury is not in a retrograde) too. Mercury is also a beneficent energy for short travel, so plan your day trips accordingly. Get more Mercury meanings here.
  • Thursday : Jupiter A national survey of North American companies concludes Thursday is the most productive day of the week in business. It's no wonder, as Jupiter has a way of lighting a fire under us and getting us moving. Jupiter is the planet of enterprise and expansion. It's also an extremely optimistic planetary energy that can be felt all through the day on Thursdays when we tune into it. Best tasks for Thursdays include: Socializing, networking, marketing. Working with financial tasks such as the stock market or even checkbook balancing will lead to positive results in the long term when done on Thursdays while ruminating in Jupiter energy. Check out more Jupiter meanings here.
  • Friday : Venus We all know Venus energy, and when it comes to the symbolic meaning of days, Venus is a highly appropriate vibe for Friday, the traditional end-of-the-workweek day. Venus is about love, connection, belonging, comfort, sensuality and passion. If you think about it, the majority people who have traditional Monday - Friday workweeks tend let their hair down and really celebrate on Fridays (points for kicking off the weekend too). Friday is an all-around-feel-good day, replete with the energy of friendliness and kindness. Interestingly, Friday is also the most popular (romantic) date night too. Best tasks and events for Fridays include: Romance, romance, romance! Did I mention romance? Fridays are also perfect for expressing your love amidst friends and family. This is a great day for pleasure and appreciation, so trips to places that make you feel indulged, luxurious or pampered are good too (like a spa, salon, the movies, a jewelry store). Get more symbolic Venus meanings here.
  • Saturday : Saturn Saturn can be a stern energy and a real taskmaster too. This makes Saturday one of the most advantageous days of week because opportunity for productivity and completing tasks is optimal. Unlike Thursday/Jupiter however, Saturn isn't as jovial when working to get a job done. In fact, Saturdays are best put to use when we thoroughly plan for prevention. Preparing for the week ahead on Saturday will align our Saturn energies and bring about satisfactory results for each consecutive day in the week. Best tasks for Saturday: Housework, preparation for upcoming events, academic tasks like studying and homework, catching up on a backlog of work (I'm always working Saturdays :). Get more low-down on Saturn symbolism here
  • Sunday : The Sun Notorious throughout time and cultures as being a day of rest, the sun shines brightly on our Sundays with clarity, vitality and a sense of well being. This day is optimal for soaking up some social-warmth by being with family, friends and neighbors. It's also a perfect day to catch up on our rest and relaxation. The sun is all about radiance, sharing, expressing, expanding, illumination and growth. The sun is also about provision, as it insures the continuation of life as we know it. Therefore, the best tasks for Sunday include: Rest, relaxing, having fun with loved ones, gardening, grocery shopping, cooking and worship for the purpose of illumination. Get more illuminated about Sun Symbolism here.

WHAT IS INTELLIGENCE?

WHAT IS INTELLIGENCE?
In Latin, intelligence means "to choose between." It does not mean to simply think. 

Cognition is the process of knowing and includes both awareness and judgement. Cognition allows us to perceive in the present moment that at the heart of a situation is a Choice.

Do I of this or do I do that? 

Second aspect of intelligence is the property of will or volition. This will is sometimes called "conation" which is why we say in yoga that intelligence is both conative and cognitive. 

Will is what translates our awareness of choice into action. Hatha Yoga is the Yoga of Will.

BREAK FREE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT

BREAK FREE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT

The yogi wants to get off the merry-go-round of cause and effect. 

I will cultivate actions that are reaction free. 

I am not a prisoner of my past badness or past goodness. 

If we understand the relationship between samskara and karma, we can break the chain of causality. 

-Light on Life, Iyengar
