Hot yoga: a view from inside

Hot yoga: a view from inside

DSCN0318I'd like to share an inside secret with you:

Being a hot yoga teacher is endlessly surprising. Some days you tap into a depth of wisdom you didn't even know you had.

The other day, a dear student came to my hot yoga class, despairing.  I let her vent just a bit before gently explaining how Law of Attraction brings you more of what you focus on, so NOT talking when you're upset might be the best strategy right now... and she asked>

"Are you saying that I should just put my head in the sand and ignore what’s going on around me?”

Not at all, I said. But you can reframe it: you can be appreciative that you are experiencing so strongly what you don't want, so by contrast you can instantly know what you do want more, and then talk about that. Once you do, Energy flows back through you and you will know what steps to take to get to where you want to be.

We are living in interesting times.

The chaos you may be feeling internally now seems to be expressing itself externally in changes around us; some wanted and others, not.

How will you navigate through it all?

"When you take the time to become fully aligned with all-that-you-are before you attempt to offer your action, you are so much more powerful."

Now is the time to learn to be grounded within yourself, to deliberately react or not, to keep moving towards what you want your life to be and show others how to do the same.

Now is your time for Riverflow Hot Yoga Blissful Warrior Teacher Training

You already love hot yoga. You see the changes it has made in your body, and sense the deeper impact it can have on your life. Here's why:

"In the absence of negative emotion—and therefore allowance of complete alignment and communication with Energy—your physical body can reclaim its balance and recover from any imbalance."

  • What if you could go deeper, faster?
  • What if you can learn how to deliberately turn towards what you want in a life you came here for?
  • What if everything you learned about living your life .... is backwards?

You may be ready to be  making a difference in other people's lives by doing something you believe in and love.

Or maybe you want to go deeper, just for yourself

These two things are not separate.

"There is a Vibrational relationship between the physical Being and Energy. In the absence of the hindrance that is caused by resistant negative thought, that communication stays open to clear, up-to-the-moment, keeping your physical body at peak and perfect performance."

What is Riverflow Hot Yoga Blissful Warrior Teacher Training?

It's not like anything else.

  • It's hot yoga from  anatomy to asana to the underlying energy and its impact on your body and mind
  • It's the philosophy of yoga and its relevance in your life today
  • It's about chakras and koshas and energy balancing 
  • It's about developing your presence
  • But mostly, it's an opportunity to be open to what's inside you, to take a good look at the life you're living, use your own guidance system to steer you.

It isn't easy...but it is simple.

"Learn to use your Guidance System and any moment you’re off track, you’ll feel it. Every moment that you have stepped away from your Energy, you’ll know it."

Some of our FORUM topics may surprise you - they not seem related to yoga -  money, relationships, parenting - but are very much on your mind and in your life and therefore, a powerful part of understanding your yoga.

Riverflow Hot Yoga Blissful Warrior Teacher Training is unique:  we meet twice weekly live and mostly ONLINE - no need to travel in order to take this far-reaching journey.

Every Riverflow Hot Yoga Blissful Warrior Teacher Training is different. Each group of trainees brings a set of needs and desires and we will address them, together.

I’d like to just zap you with this experience instantly, so you could forever feel certainty that you are both perfect as you are and always expanding; if I could give you all this with a wave of my magic wand, I would.

But like hot yoga itself,  you must do this for yourself.

You must learn to appreciate where you are, even where you've been, to truly know that all of it is necessary in order to fully allow the expansion of you, that ultimately takes you home.

You can't get it wrong, and you'll never get it done; that's the fun of it.

Yes, you are here to have as much fun possible; and fun is more available than you can imagine.

Riverflow Hot Yoga Blissful Warrior Teacher Training is about learning to prioritize doing whatever it takes to make yourself happy in every moment - and why this is so important.

"Is this easy? No. If it was everyone would do it! But it is easier than being miserable for even one more day." - Mary Myers 

"Am I really experienced enough, spiritual enough, am I really ready  to be a hot yoga teacher?"  you may think to yourself

Never mind what you think.

Focus on what you want and let that be the basis of your life.

And know that being happy is the answer to every question.

  1. Oh, this is very new, I have never thought that online YTT is possible. Usually, it is such a big deal for everybody – the commute from one place to another one. I guess, many types of trainings could be offered online these days. You have very unusual topic such as parenting. I have never seen them in the schedule of Yoga schools, but this is very serious since many of us are parents of young children.

  2. I will never tire of hearing this post and things of the like. With this weeks Plurk exercise to journal every “I Can’t” and find a way to make it an “I Can”, this blog is a great reminder of the benefits awaiting you by just having a positive outlook. We have the power and you’re right, it isn’t easy, but it’s so simple.

  3. Nice blog. I really love the title of blog, Thanks for providing the list of yoga forms. I am also in touch with a well known yoga teacher his name Dr Sushil Yogi, He is providing the yoga teacher training in Rishikesh

  4. I had no intention of becoming a hot yoga teacher but it’s interesting how much I am sharing my experience with others when they ask. It’s been so easy for me to talk about it so maybe, just maybe, teaching is in my future. I can’t believe I am even writing this down.

  5. I remember reading this before deciding to enter the training program, thinking: “that’s really deep, I don’t think it’s for me…I just want to be really good at poses”. Re-reading this now, it’s all so simple and has started changing my life, which I didn’t even know I wanted to do. I so wish for programs like this to be available to children, teens and adults in a regular curriculum (in schools).
