Life is Full of Setbacks – How to Remove the Roadblocks to Your Happiness

by Silvia Mordini Dukha, the bad stuff, happens to everyone. We must stop feeding our stress phobia thinking we are trying to eradicate the bad stuff (fear, distrust, suffering, armoring, rigidity, contraction, defensiveness, aggressiveness, resentment.) The real obstacle to spiritual practice is thinking that to be happy we must be stress-free. Obstacles are not the problem. Life is full of setbacks, traffic jams, heartbreaks and roadblocks. It is our reaction and hostaging of energy that is the real block to our happiness. Learning how to stress successfully is the answer to staying Zen. Dukkha impacts us on all levels: 1. Physiologically – arises from overtaxing our nervous systems, constant fight or flight response. 2. Psychologically –this comes from a feeling of separateness. We withdraw to a point where we experience…

The Importance of Community in Yoga

by Silvia Mordini Truth: My favorite part of yoga is community. The coming together of humans of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, ages, interests to share the same experience. That’s why I go back everyday as a teacher and as a student. And science tells us that being in a healthy community is good for us.

Therefore engaging with others trying to think happy thoughts helps us create happy thoughts as well. Positive energy creates and attracts more positive…

7 Tips for New Yoga Teachers

By Silvia Mordini Back when I was a new teacher, none of the social media measurements had existed to pressure competition and comparison with other teachers.

Here are seven psychological and emotional pitfalls that stand in the way of genuine success in teaching yoga and how to overcome them: 1. Competition Stop torturing yourself by comparing yourself to other teachers status updates and fancy asana photos. Put an end to trolling Facebook and Instagram for reasons to be offended. Look to these outlets for…

Meditate the Right Way

Spoiler: There is no WRONG way to meditate! Meditation comes in every kind of shape and size. It is called a practice because it is simply that — a practice. We are human, and the chatter of our minds is sometimes inevitable. So, the practice of meditation, instead of aiming to clear our minds, it helps us to focus our minds. Meditation is a choice! While practicing, you make the choice to come back to your present, to come back to your breath, to come back to whatever you are doing in that moment. The actual sitting down and just being with yourself is where most people stop. They believe there is some right or wrong way to be still. Truthfully, that’s just your ego’s way of trying to tell you you’re not…
