HOW TO PICK A YOGA SCHOOL THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU. ❗️Reviews.
Most people choose the schools they are already familiar with but it’s always a good idea to check the reviews specifically what people think about the certification program you are willing to take. ❗️How much should you spend.
All schools are different and the price of the program may very. New schools may offer much lower prices.
Also, some schools may offer work trade. A few hours a week at the front desk may pay for your yoga certification. Don’t be afraid to communicate this with the owner if interested. ❗️What’s you favorite style of yoga?
What’s your favorite style of yoga to teach?
I’m all about power yoga classes, I love taking them and teaching them, but I never knew how much pleasure it is to teach chair yoga to elders.
Some certification programs are extremely narrow and teach very limited (or their signature) style of yoga while others offer a broad spectrum of styles for you to try and share with your future students. No matter what your personal style and interest is, it’s good to take a look at both. ❗️Start offering donation classes on your own.
I started teaching donation based beach yoga classes before signing up for the teaching certificate. I wanted to see if teaching was right for me. I paid 2 dollars for local Facebook add and 3 people showed up 😅 That was the start of my fully packed Saturday class at the gym. .

IGNITE YOUR DHARMA
For many folks, knowing what their purpose is in life is a murky subject, and as a result, so much of their energy is spent on the what’s and the how’s, not the actual “do’s.” ✨
If this is you right now, you understand, that not being clear creates a limitation similar to feeling imprisoned, and you are so ready to break apart those shackles!
The longer one is faced with this not knowing what their purpose is, or how to attain it, the more depleting it becomes to the Vital body. Confusion, doubt, fear and then eventually bodily sickness are some symptomatic responses. ✨
One of my favorite definitions of Tantra is “to move beyond your limitations.” Tantra is a holistic science that includes many modalities such as meditation and mantra, but did you know that it also includes Herbology? That’s my jam!! 🌱 ✨
It is in the realms of the flowers, Nature’s most showy revelation of particular patterns and energies (much like a mandala or yantra), where the mind and emotions can be shifted from confusion about one’s purpose to clarity. The flowers can also support our will when we have little of it, and our courage or motivation, when we need it. 🌸 ✨
This Wednesday (Feb 28 at 4pm pst) I am going to explain a little bit about the flowers in the realms of Tantra Vidya- the science of Tantra, and particular plants helpful for supporting one’s dharma. Specifically- Clarity Of Mind.
As Nature’s little gurus, you will learn which ones can help ignite the spark You Need, for fulfillment in your destiny. ✨

#fridayintroductions are a thing, right?
So I'm hopping on the bandwagon ~
3 random facts about me: •
> I'm terrified of spiders (even the littlest ones) & especially if they climb onto my body 🙅🕷️
> I'm a belly sleeper & sometimes, according to Ivan, I snore 🤷💤
> I grew up in a tiny town of 200ish people with not much around by way of entertainment but the trees and the lake. So, when I was a kid, you could most often find me monkeying around like that 🐒👆
*Must be where I get it from now 🙊
Happy Friday, friends ✌️
Stay classy xo 📸 @svphotograph
I’ve been feel’n, what I call my make-up, lately. 😏 I’ve been wearing it everywhere I go, even though it gets that awkward 👀on occasion. •
Made from a type of clay called gopi-candana, it is considered the footprint of divinity as well as a symbol of one who has taken initiation into a theistic Vedanta tradition.
Placed on one’s head (as well as 12 other places on the body), it symbolizes one’s dedication to to be used as an object in the hands of divinity. Having become exhausted with existence on the plane of exploitation, wherein one tries for one’s self-centered enjoyment only to be met with suffering; having also become exhausted with the plane of abnegation, wherein one renounces self-centered enjoyment only to be left with emptiness; one arrives to the plane of dedication, wherein one serves a beatific, ubiquitous, infinitely personal Reality (i.e. bae=Krsna) that includes and interpenetrates all being as we know it, and yet transcends it at the same time, leaving the soul with aesthetic rapture!
In the process of initiation, called panca-samskara or the 5 purifications, receiving the marks of the tradition are consider the second of the five purificatory acts. Externally, it comprises the marks you can see on the body (like my make-up). Internally, it signifies a turning away from worldliness to transcendence; from darkness to light; from death to immortality:
“Lead me from the unreal to the real!
Lead me from darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.” #upanisad#bhakti#bhaktiyoga#yoga#yogalife#yogalifestyle#spiritual#spirituality#vedanta#harekrishna

Feeling very grateful for my Friday students @whitemoonsylva that join me at 8am for our weekly all levels class. This has become such a refreshing and empowering experience, full of learning curves, laughter and time to try new things within an encouraging and supportive community. Feeling thankful and overjoyed with all the love, see you next week! Same time, same place & happy Friday! ☕️✨🌧
It was such an honour to spend time with 20 or so yogis , yoginis .. in the company of @markwhitwell who has the spirit of true personal yoga practice at heart . Sometimes i feel like a lone wolf so was humbled to see so many people and more switching on to self enquiry..tuning into your own inner wisdom and sovereignty and the knowing of..... you are perfect in this moment that you are a powerful beautiful expression of the universe .. the duality of male., female is made manifest as a oneness all steming from the one thing that completly binds us in this realm .....the breath .
When you can really pay attention to what your soul desires, you can eliminate anything in your life that makes you feel drained and debilitated and instead focus on positive thoughts and experiences that radiate with beauty and positive energy.
It's time to stop the habit!!

The light that yoga sheds on life is something special, it is transformative. it does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees. The moment I remember to breathe and connect to what’s real, connect to love, get grounded, get present, then everything has a way of sort of falling into place.
So, surround yourself with people who push you to do and be better. no drama or negativity; just higher goals and higher motivation; good times and positive energy. No jealousy or hate; only simply bringing out the absolute best in each other
📸 @lukegraeber my awesome teacher; amazing friend 🙏🏻
always remember that your present situation is not your final destination, from time to time, it feels good to remember how far we have come, it’s a way to recall why we started but don’t get stuck in the past, we have life in front of us, the best is yet to come. .
Don't be disheartened when things take a turn that you weren't expecting. Continue to believe; to strive, and one day you will find a way to continue, you learn, you grow.
Burning ever brighter; walking taller, stronger, wiser.
I don’t like showing my face coz I don’t like the way I look.
I’m not pretty, I’m not super awesome.
And Yes, I’m an underwear model but I just don’t like my face.
Me is ME! I still love myself;
life does not get better by CHANCE
It gets better by CHANGE, by cutting people out of my life, doesn’t mean i hate them, simple mean “respect myself”.
Not everyone is mean to stay.
Forget the ones that forgot you .
