Blog Archives - Inner Revolution Yoga Studio


January 19, 2018

Currently we are super motivated by some of our instructors. What I love about running a yoga studio is that I am inspired everyday by the guides that we have. When I hear stories of how yoga has changed their lives and see their passion to share this with others. This is what creates inspiration for me.

One instructor in particular right now is growing and expanding so much. She is using her teaching from India and trying new ideas to help a group of people shift into a higher vibration. She is moving out of her comfort zone and staying true to herself allowing her to be an exceptional yoga teacher.

What is the meaning of this word that is used in every yoga class?  Namaste, translated roughly, it means “I bow to the God within you”, or “The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you” – a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness.

This greeting is usually done at the end of every yoga practice with a bow towards yourself, towards others and towards the teacher. There are 3 places we can rest our hands while we bow. The first most common will be at our hearts centre in a prayer position. This represents the love and compassion for oneself and the connection to your higher self or GOD. The second hand position is prayer hands at your third eye point or middle of your fore head. This space represents the connection to your intuition and flow of energy. The third hand position again in prayer hands can be at your mouth. This represents the connection to speaking the truth.

Another way we connect to these three spaces:

  1. Third Eye point: I see the truth
  2. Mouth: I speak the truth
  3. Heart: I am the truth

A wise proverb from a Buddhist monk. Do not get attached to things that feel horrible. Do not get attached to things that feel amazing.

Feel each experience for what it is. Be happy to have that experience and move on.

Todays blog is a reflection blog:

How do you connect to your voice? Do what you say and how you feel match? When we begin to connect our voice with how we feel be being to connect on all levels. When we form strong connections these bonds become hard to break. Are we forming positive connections? Are we reinforcing positive feeling back into our bodies?

Mantra is a word or sound that is repeated over and over to help keep the mind in one place.  Mantra work is great for children. Children learn to tune in to their word. This word represents the concentration of their mind and can help them tune into the present moment leaving any anxiety behind and creating a new vibration of focus and calm.

How do we shift and change the world? This is a question I have thought about a lot. Since I was a small child I was convinced that I could help change the world. The first phase was me not fitting into the norm, average box. The second phase was me becoming a teacher. We need to educate students on how to change the world. Every job should create a positive shift towards making the world a better place. How can we all contribute to making our earth, our world a better place?

Our momentum to shifting is increasing. Our ability to save time due to new technologies, collaborations and communications has allowed us to spend more of our time on other things. If we choose positive shifting learning experiences and education we can exponentially shift. Creating high jumps in consciousness and connection.

We are reading a book on abundance and it talks a lot about exponential growth in areas like information, communication, technology,  and education.  For our next blog it is key to understand what exponential means.

What does exponential mean?

It means the rate of increase becomes quicker and quicker as the thing that increases becomes larger. For example if we exponentially speed up the time it takes us to learn something new, then every time we learn something new it takes us a shorter amount of time. We are then able to absorb and download more information.

For example:

1-2 pieces of information

2-4 pieces of information

4-8 pieces of information

8-16 pieces of information

16-32 and so on…….

One of the ways we can exponentially speed up our rate of learning is to shut off all the noise that is not creating a higher frequency. Then we begin to shift exponentially.

Some examples of external noise might be;

Social Media

Cell phone

TV

Radio

News

The keys to unlock your heart:

  • Trust in the process: In order to live and follow your heart one of the key tools is to trust in the process. Let go of expectations and how you think it should go and trust.
  • Practice mindfulness: Part of the heart experience rests in the present moment. In order to be present, one must practice. Mindfulness is a wonderful way to work on moving more into the present experience.
  • Speak with your highest self: Our voice is a very powerful tool. Think before we speak negatively or judge others. Allow our words to be positive vibrations of our heart.
  • Collaborate with heart centered beings. Find those around you that are living from the heart and tribe up with them. Allow your tribe to grow and expand with others following their hearts.
  • Follow the path of least resistance: As easy as this sounds many of us like to stay in resistance. The resistance seems familiar and known to us. We fear the unknown and many of us believe that life is this way, negative, hard and full of resistance. Once we begin to move away from this path and move toward a more fluid heart centered path everything begins to open and flow.
