Aren’t You Tired of Being Perfect?

By Silvia Mordini While out walking last week, I saw a handwritten sign someone had posted on the sidewalk. It read, “Please forgive them, they are doing the best they can.” On the other side it read, “Everyone has something they want to be forgiven for.” This sidewalk philosophy was a great reminder of a lesson in Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements. The lesson is that we should always strive to do our best. And our best is going to change from moment to moment. Which is a very different idea that some people have regarding doing their best, and being perfect. Aren’t you tired of being perfect? So what is the difference between doing our best in a spiritual way and perfectionism? One is always the same…

AWAKE

You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup – #SelfCare First By Silvia Mordini I’m a recovering workaholic who used to be totally ignorant of my most valuable resource, my health. I wore my workaholism like a badge of honor. I was in constant competition with myself and didn’t even consider there was another way to exist. I was winning! But it came at a cost. I did everything “right.” I proved myself successful in the ways most people define success like making more money and fancy job titles. What happened next was not just one thing but a series of moments of enlightenment that made me realize I had everything I was supposed to want, but I wasn’t happy. One of those moments that woke me up was being in…

The Alchemy of Yoga Program: Key Questions Answered

4 KEY QUESTIONS I GET ASKED ABOUT ALCHEMY PROGRAM: 1. What Kind of Yoga do we Teach? We prepare students to teach intelligent vinyasa mindfully sequenced with an emphasis on breath, meditation, poses and a philosophical theme, which serves as the intention of the class.

What is your emotional and mental health worth?

Super Namaste! Silvia here, Alchemy of Yoga Founder. Let’s get really real for a moment. What’s your emotional and mental health worth to you? If you had to put a dollar figure on this. What would it be? Of all the things you invest time and money in where are YOU on that list? Sadly, for most of us we prioritize the health and well-being of our car as more important than ourselves. That doesn’t make sense to me. Does it to you? As always I’m going to tell you the truth. This is not a rehearsal for a better life. THIS IS IT. You are not in a trial run. You’re not going to be able to trade in your body for a newer model. This one is it….

SPRING Forward into New Beginnings

By Silvia Mordini Spring is quickly coming, starting March 20, 2019. On this day in the Northern Hemisphere, we have 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. Winter’s shadow moves on. Even so, a lingering bit of heaviness may remain, like the spring jacket you wear or the tiredness you feel in the air. It’s okay to acknowledge the darkness of Winter and see it as the fertilizer making our souls more fertile for the new beginnings of Spring. This seasonal transition serves as a reminder that we can only make new beginnings to the extent we appreciate the endings in our lives. To make a big change and begin again isn’t always popular. As you change yourself, your energy towards those around you changes, and if they…

How To Escape Scarcity Mentality, and Believe that You Are Enough

By Silvia Mordini I often meditate on trusting that I will have enough. Enough of what? Well, enough courage, enough inner strength, enough wisdom, enough energy, enough love, enough happiness, enough peace and yes, enough money. When life becomes intense, the prism of mental scarcity often grows and distorts your view. You start to think that you are going to run out. This feels real. However you cannot attract abundance if you think this way. Abundance and Scarcity are mutually exclusive energies. Do you suffer from what Stephen Covey describes as a scarcity mentality? Do you frequently have feelings of jealousy? Do you often compare with your colleagues, friends or family? Do you constantly measure what you have? Do you have any sort of loss aversion? Let’s find out how…

Come Home To Yourself

By Silvia Mordini When we’re at home with ourselves, we’re fully embodied. We feel grounded, peaceful and self-accepting. We’re less likely to worry. We’re not overly concerned about what anybody else thinks or says that isn’t loving, kind or helpful. Yoga is a way of coming home to this place. Yoga serves us as a “respite” from many of the concerns and responsibilities that can await us at home or work. Studies show us that little respites reduce stress, and help us approach life with a clear mind and a more open heart. Connecting with my breath, moving through skin, I traverse muscle and bone and wash up on the shores of my own being. –Julie Rappaport, 365 Yoga Daily Meditations To come “home” to yourself, first be aware of…

How To Form Healthy Habits That Will Last

by Silvia Mordini We all form habits as we go through life. When we realize that we are creatures of habit and that those very habits often keep us stuck in patterns we can finally begin to break unhealthy habits, only then can true spiritual growth begin. In order to change, we have to change something. When you look at what you want for your life direction, you may find that something has to change from the way you’ve been living. By consciously understanding which habits no longer serve you, then you are able to realize your best transformation. This is the basis of why a cleanse serves your best health. It renews your awareness of what you’re doing and not doing. If we want to develop healthier habits like…
