Radical Self-Love & Self-Acceptance

My dear Global Yoga Community,

“Radical self-love and self-acceptance” is a powerful concept of embracing oneself wholly and unconditionally.  All of this is not new to us, but to put into action becomes a different story.
I recently read this quote and it touched me deeply, because it is simple and to the point.

“My arms grew tired from constantly reaching,
so I wrapped them around myself
and allowed them to rest”


Self-Love
Self-love involves nurturing a deep appreciation, care, and compassion for oneself. It means recognizing one’s worth, acknowledging strengths and weaknesses, and treating oneself with kindness and respect. Self-love involves prioritizing self-care practices that promote physical, emotional, and mental well-being. It also entails setting boundaries, saying no when necessary, and making choices that align with personal values and goals.

Radical Self-Love
Radical self-love takes the concept of self-love a step further by advocating for a fierce, unapologetic, and unwavering love for oneself. It challenges societal norms, stereotypes, and expectations that may hinder individuals from fully embracing and celebrating their authentic selves. Radical self-love encourages individuals to reclaim their power, embrace their uniqueness, and reject harmful narratives or standards that promote self-doubt or self-criticism.

Self-Acceptance
Self-acceptance involves embracing oneself fully, including both strengths and weaknesses, without judgment or comparison to others. It means acknowledging and embracing one’s flaws, imperfections, and vulnerabilities as essential parts of the human experience. Self-acceptance allows individuals to let go of unrealistic expectations and embrace their authentic selves. It fosters a sense of inner peace, authenticity, and empowerment.

Combining radical self-love and self-acceptance creates a transformative mindset that promotes inner harmony, resilience, and empowerment. It encourages individuals to celebrate their uniqueness, cultivate a positive relationship with themselves, and navigate life’s challenges with confidence and grace. Embracing radical self-love and self-acceptance can lead to profound personal growth, increased self-confidence, and a deeper sense of fulfillment and joy in life.

After all one can say it is a process! 🙂

Finding The Balance Of Strength & Flexibility

My dear Global Yoga Community,

After more than a decade of teaching yoga I am still meeting people saying “I am not good in yoga – I am not flexible or I am too stiff”. My usual response is “one more reason to start yoga”.
I recently came across these quotes and they inspired me to write about it.

“Flexibility comes from letting go of where you think you should be and embracing where you are.”
~ Deborah Adele

“Remember, it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go – what does matter is who you are when you get there.”
~ Max Strom

It comes back to the mindset in which you approach your
yoga practice.
Mental flexibility will become your strength on and off the mat. When faced with challenges or obstacles, with flexible minds we are better equipped to overcome them, find solutions, and maintain a positive outlook.
After all, a rigid mindset, pushing through barriers and constantly challenging ourselves physically and mentally will lead to depletion and some form of emptiness.

By achieving the balance between flexibility and strength in our body we find more comfort in the body, less injuries and a sense of
well-being.
Yoga is not about how flexible we are or what we can do. It is about doing it and making it a healthy habit in your life. Showing up for ourselves, becoming more and more aware of what our needs are and honoring it. Becoming authentic and the best version of ourselves.

You Don’t Pay Love Back; You Pay It Forward

@boanergesjr

My dear Global Yoga Community,

I don’t know if you saw the movie “Pay it forward” (2000); it is one of my favorite movies of all times.
Looking at the world today this mindset and forward thinking approach seems to me more valid and valuable than ever for humanity and to see it change.

“Our brains are wired for connection, but trauma rewires them for protection.”
~ Ryan North

So if we all overcome our traumas and tap back into our nature to connect with each other, we would live the change we want to see in the world.

People became to private, narcissistic and afraid to share their traumas. They are missing the magic that happens when light is shed onto the darkness by speaking about the wounds. When everybody would reach out beyond their comfort zone with simple acts of kindness and love, the world would feel a shift. It doesn’t need to go as far as taking in a homeless person, but maybe something you may have not considered yet or haven’t done in a long time for a someone you don’t know.
It starts with holding a door open for someone, let a car pass ahead of you, a friendly smile and word to a stranger.
This implies that we consciously see and acknowledge each other on the street, in the store or wherever else. That itself seems almost revolutionary these days.

This community is so kind and generous which is one of the reasons I love you all so much. You all are there for each other and the people around you.
Can we all take it a step further? Maybe you do already!

My Thoughts On The Month Of Love

My dear Global Yoga Community,

I don’t believe in one day or month of Love – ideally it is the driving force of our daily life!
It should be a guiding principle that influences our thoughts and actions throughout the entire year.

By making love a daily practice, it becomes a fundamental aspect of our interactions with others. It implies conscious acts of kindness, compassion, and understanding towards ourselves and others. If me are making it a consistent habit, it is contributing to a positive and nurturing environment.

By prioritizing love, we are better equipped to manage stress and respond to destructive forces with a more positive mindset.
It becomes a powerful force for maintaining mental and emotional well-being in the face of life’s challenges.
Recognizing that emotional and mental health are influenced by the daily choices and attitudes we cultivate, love becomes a fundamental element of our holistic well-being.


Two Heart Cells Beating

“If you place two living heart cells from different people in a Petrie dish, they will in time find and maintain a third and common beat.”
~ Molly Vass

This biological fact holds the secret of all relationship. It is cellular proof that beneath any resistance we might pose and beyond all our attempts that fall short, there is the ver nature of life itself some essential joining force.
This inborn ability to find and enliven a common beat is the miracle of love.
This force is what makes compassion possible, even probable. For if two cells can find the common puls beneath everything, how much more can full hearts feel when all excuses fall away?
This drive towards a common heart is the force beneath curiosity and passion. It is what makes strangers talk to strangers, despite the discomfort. It is how we risk new knowledge. For being still enough, long enough, next to anything living, we find a way to sing the one voiceless song.
Yet we often tire ourselves by fighting how our hearts want to join, seldom realizing that both strength and peace come from our hearts beating in unison with all that is alive.
It feels incredible uplifting that without even knowing each other, there exists a common beat between all hearts, just waiting to be felt…
~ Mark Nepo (The book of awakening)

The Mind Is Like An Intelligent Dog

My dear Global Yoga Community,

I have been working with my dog now for months on changing her behavior and I felt that I have come quite far.
As some of you know, it took a lot of patience, time, discipline, restrictions and being conscious about any signs that I receive as well as give.

The last couple of days I felt like going back to square one. First she ran away after she was searching for her food in the woods. The next day, she ran off while searching for her food. Today left even earlier and was even gone for an extended period of time. I started with her dealing with consequences on the 2nd day; like staying outside and no more food till the next day. It worked a few months ago in the learning phase, but this it didn’t have an effect at all.
To tell you the truth, it was and is pretty upsetting and frustrating, but I consciously tried to change my response to it, like laughing/being amused by her being so strong minded. I know she is testing me, trying to get away with things one more time. That’s what intelligent dogs do. And if you let them get away with it, the next time it will be even worse.

As I was sitting on a pile of rocks close to the car waiting for her, I was thinking to myself “that she is pretty much like how our mind behaves as well”.
When we decide we want or need to change something – the most obvious time is New Years and our resolutions. We start with a strong determination to follow through this time with the change of diet, working out every day, stop drinking alcohol or smoking. Then after a week or two we might slag here and there and then more and more. The mind convincing us of various reasons to go off track and soon all is out the window.

Dogs can sometimes be mischievous or attempt to do things they aren’t supposed to. How about if we would treat our mind like an intelligent dog and not let it get away with anything. Not let our mind engage in thoughts or behaviors that may not align with conscious intentions or desired outcomes. This could include impulsive or automatic reactions that go against our conscious goals.

The moment we thing we got it and we go with business as usual, it will throw a bigger or harder test at us to see how committed we are. So next time you are going through a change, you may think about your mind being a dog in behavior therapy. Instead of getting upset with yourself and beating yourself up, you might be able to laugh at yourself how it caught you off guard again 🙂
Then continue your journey in your new found spirit!
Consider smaller steps towards your goal that you can’t set yourself up for “failure”.

Using this metaphor, is an acknowledgment that the mind, like an intelligent dog, requires attention, training, and understanding. It emphasizes the need for self-awareness and the ability to guide one’s thoughts and actions consciously.

Resilience Of The Soul

@danielhannah

My dear Global Yoga Community,

The proverb “The eye is the window to the soul” always resonated with me. Which brings me to my main subject for this blog.
What does it mean to have a resilient soul?

A resilient soul typically refers to an individual who possesses the ability to bounce back, adapt, and overcome challenges, hardships, or adversities in life. Resilience is the capacity to face difficulties, trauma, or stress, and then recover from them with strength and grace.

A resilient soul is often characterized by a positive mindset, the ability to learn from experiences, and a determination to persevere in the face of difficulties. Resilience doesn’t mean avoiding or denying pain; instead, it involves coping with and growing from life’s inevitable setbacks.

* * *

When the soul’s immune system runs wild
Amygdala, hippocampus and somatic markers are helpful systems that work for us – or under certain circumstances against us. Because our soul is a developed system of conscious and, above all, unconscious programs. Just like our body, it must be fed with good food that the mental immune system can fend off the attacks of so-called psychological viruses. Experts such as the specialist psychologist for psychotherapy Dr. Hans Menning understand it as “penetrating harmful thoughts and feelings that have become lodged in us and cause us to ponder and make us unable to act.
Furthermore, Dr. Menning explains, “These are very powerful, often self-damaging programs; we often don’t even notice their intrusion, but once they are inside, they develop and control us. They often start with ‘you are…’ followed by a negative adjective and a reinforcement of what was said. ‘You’re chaotic, you always misplace everything!’ This seemingly harmless sentence has it all, it’s a classic psychological virus that can unfold and become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Of course, there are much more complex and subtle psychoviruses. We are exposed to attacks from a variety of viruses and are surrounded by ‘You must…’, ‘You shall…’ and ‘You must not…’. Ideally, we quickly leave these determinations behind us, but sometimes a virus takes hold and we ‘internalize’ it.”

Research shows, there are ways to stimulate the soul’s immune system, like the color blue. A blue sky has a particularly stimulating effect on our self-healing powers. This is because blue is the color of calm and serenity, embodied by water and sea, sky and horizon.
Brain researchers have discovered that the color blue has a particularly positive effect on the pituitary gland which regulates the entire human hormonal system. But blue is much more than that – it is one of the colors that particularly symbolize nature and is associated with a happy childhood. The fewer beautiful “blue” moments and the more dark experiences someone has had in childhood, the higher their risk of developing heart disease.
~ The immune system of the soul (Happi-Health 2/2019)

* * *

I think most of us are striving to be resilient. All forms of stress – physical, emotional or environmental, has an impact on our well-being. It’s a reminder that physical and emotional well-being are interconnected and intertwined, and the conclusion is taking care of both aspects contributes to a holistic sense of health, vitality and overall resilience. I am a strong believer that we always have the ability to change and reverse things in our life and in our body!
Let’s start with taking one positive action: Wear at least one blue item in class for the next two weeks 🙂

Interconnectedness of Transition, Change & Transformation

My dear Global Yoga Community,

Wishing you all Happy & Peaceful Holidays!
I have been contemplating lately about these three aspects that have had and big impact on my life over this past year. I think they have been a good guide for my “fresh” intentions.
As we all have our own process and life journey I hope this blog will resonate with you or inspire you in the way you set your intentions as well.


Transitions from one year to another, from one life phase to another, and from life to death are profound and inevitable aspects of the human experience.
*
Change is a fundamental aspect of life, and transitions represent the various phases or stages of these changes. 
*
Transformation goes beyond surface-level. It involves multiple changes that are integrated into a holistic shift while transition is the bridge between the old and the new in the transformational journey.

* * *

Transition, change, and transformation are not isolated events. They are continuous processes. Transition offers an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and the reshaping of one’s narrative.
While some transitions are joyous and celebratory, others may be challenging and require resilience and adaptation.
Here are a few key points to consider:

Inevitability of Change
Change is a constant in life. From personal development and relationships to career paths and societal shifts, change is inevitable. Embracing it can help us to navigate transitions more effectively.

Life Transitions
Life transitions encompass a wide range of experiences, such as moving from one stage of life to another (e.g., adolescence to adulthood, retirement), changes in personal relationships, career shifts, and more. Each transition brings its own set of challenges and opportunities.

Adaptability
The ability to adapt to change is a valuable skill. Life transitions often require us to be flexible, open-minded, and resilient. Developing these qualities can contribute to a smoother adjustment to new circumstances.

Growth and Learning
Transitions provide opportunities for personal growth and learning. Whether through challenges or new experiences, we can gain valuable insights and skills during times of change.

Psychological and Emotional Impact
Transitions can have a profound psychological and emotional impact. They may evoke feelings of excitement, anxiety, uncertainty, or a mix of emotions. Acknowledging and understanding these emotions is crucial for managing transitions and transformations successfully.

Support Systems
Having a strong support system, including friends, family, or professional networks, can be crucial during times of transition. Sharing experiences and seeking guidance can help us navigate the complexities of change and transformation.

Reflection and Planning
Transitions sometimes prompt us to reflect on our values, goals, and priorities. This introspection can lead to intentional planning and decision-making, guiding us toward a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

Cycles of Change
Life is characterized by cycles of change, and transitions are part of these ongoing cycles. Recognizing that change is not a one-time event but a continual process can help us approach life with a sense of adaptability and resilience.

Time and Phases
Transitions, changes, and transformations often have overlapping timelines. Transitions may be short-term adjustments within a longer change process, and changes may be part of a broader transformational journey.

* * *

In essence, understanding and embracing the interconnectedness of transition, change and transformation can empower us to navigate life’s journey with greater resilience, purpose, and personal fulfillment. Ultimately, they contribute to the rich and complex tapestry of our human experience.

Life Purpose

@Johnhain

My dear Global Yoga Community,

Did you ever ask you the question: What is my Purpose in Life?
In the last few months I saw what a difference it makes even for a dog to have a purpose. There were certainly times in my life where I felt like a dog without a purpose.

The purpose question came up quite a few times in my life and every time I found out something new about myself. A few months ago I signed up with Sirius Joy, an astrology site that recently they offered a course on 40 days of my Truth and Purpose. It is all very complex, but I definitely got many new insights and I am starting to understand my Self better.

* * *

“When you love what you are doing, you are not ambitious, you are not greedy, you are not seeking fame, because that very love of what you are doing is totally sufficient in itself.”
~ J. Krishnamurti (Bombay 5th public talk 24.02.1957)


One of the values in my life was that I want to do for a living what I love and I since it was a few things divided it up over a few things.
I believed when you do just one thing 100% it “kills” the love for it, because of the high pressure on it. I managed to live like this for a long time.
Now I feel at a cross road where I don’t know if I can maintain this way of living. I am certain there are a lot of people just like me influenced by the pre and after covid changes.
I am not sure yet what the answer is, but one things I do know is that our purpose is to shine, to be a light on this planet. Our purpose is connected to what we love with our whole being. How that plays out for each one of us is our individual process and life journey.

* * *

This is what I found in the net about life purpose, in case you are not sure yet or want to explore of you.

Determining one’s life purpose is a deeply personal and subjective endeavor. It often involves introspection, self-discovery, and a willingness to explore your passions, values, and beliefs. Here is some guidance on how one might discover it:

Self-reflection
Take time to reflect on your interests, values, and the activities that bring you joy. Consider your strengths, weaknesses, and the skills you enjoy using.

Passions
Identify your passions and what activities make you lose track of time. Your purpose often aligns with what you love to do.

Values
Determine your core values. What principles do you hold dear? Your purpose is likely to be in harmony with your values.

Impact
Consider the impact you want to have on the world. How do you want to contribute to the well-being of others or make a positive difference?

Feedback
Seek feedback from friends, family, and colleagues. They may provide insights into your strengths and areas where you make a difference.

Challenges
Reflect on the challenges you’ve overcome in life. Your ability to navigate difficulties might give you a clue about your purpose.

Experiment
Don’t be afraid to try new things. Experiment with different activities, hobbies, and experiences to discover what resonates with you.

Learn from role models
Look up to people who inspire you. Examine their life paths, values, and the impact they’ve made. It may provide insights into your own aspirations.

Professional alignment
Consider how your professional skills and career goals align with your sense of purpose. Can you find meaning in your work?

Evolution
Remember that your purpose may evolve over time. Be open to reassessing and adjusting your goals as you grow and change.

It’s important to note that finding one’s life purpose is an ongoing process. It’s okay not to have all the answers immediately, and your purpose may continue to unfold as you go through different life stages and experiences.

The Art of Balancing Giving & Receiving

My dear Global Yoga Community,

We always strive for balance in our life.
One topic that is not so much talked about, but is a big part of daily life, is finding the balance of giving and receiving.
For me it has been always easy to give while receiving has been a bit of a challenge.
The first time I became really conscious of my issue with receiving in all areas of my life, was through my journey with the Human Garage. This and the recent experience in my retreat in Morocco inspired me to have a deeper look into the possible reasons behind it. This is what I found and would like to share with you.

* * *
Balancing giving and receiving in relationships can indeed be a challenge, especially for individuals who tend to be more inclined toward giving. It’s essential to find equilibrium to maintain healthy and mutually satisfying connections. Here are some insights and tips that might help:

Understand the Importance of Receiving
Recognize that receiving is not a sign of weakness or dependence. It’s a natural part of any healthy relationship. Just as giving brings joy to others, allowing yourself to receive can bring joy to those who care about you.

Acknowledge Your Needs
Be aware of your own needs and desires. Understand that it’s okay to have needs and that allowing others to meet them fosters a sense of connection. It doesn’t make you a burden or less self-sufficient.

Practice Self-Compassion
Treat yourself with the same kindness and generosity that you extend to others. Acknowledge your own worthiness of care and support. Self-compassion can make it easier to accept help or gifts from others.

Communicate Openly
Share your feelings and concerns with those close to you. Let them know that you appreciate their generosity but may struggle with receiving. Open communication fosters understanding and allows others to support you in the way you need.

Start Small
If receiving feels uncomfortable, start with small gestures. Accept compliments gracefully, express gratitude, and gradually allow yourself to accept more significant forms of support or kindness.

Shift Your Perspective
Consider receiving as an opportunity for others to experience the joy of giving. By accepting what others offer, you allow them to contribute to your well-being and happiness.

Reflect on Your Beliefs
Examine any underlying beliefs or fears that may be contributing to difficulty in receiving. Addressing these underlying issues can help you become more comfortable with the idea of receiving.

Set Boundaries
It’s crucial to set healthy boundaries in relationships. Understand your limits and communicate them to others. This ensures that you receive in a way that aligns with your comfort and values.

Practice Gratitude
Regularly express gratitude for the kindness and generosity of others. This not only reinforces positive behavior but also helps you become more mindful of the support you receive.

Remember that finding balance is an ongoing process, and it’s okay to take small steps towards change. Developing a healthy balance between giving and receiving contributes to more fulfilling and sustainable relationships.

* * *
My magical yoga retreat in Morocco let me feel the fulfillment of this balance in depth. These wonderful group of people attending, created a precious space of love and kindness where everyone experienced a natural flow of giving and receiving. I am ever so grateful to all of you!

Season Of Change

@johnhain

My dear Global Yoga Community,

There are so many changes happening around us and most of them are very unsettling and stressful I find. To bring a change forth in this world we need to come back to
“The (wo)man in the mirror” as Michael Jackson tried to bring his message across already 35 years ago. It seems maybe more valuable then ever today!

* * * 
Autumn is a season that encourages change and reflection. The transformation of the nature during this time can serve as a metaphor for personal growth and transition in our own lives. The falling leaves and the cooler temperatures provide a perfect backdrop for contemplation and renewal.
There are a few ways we can embrace change and make the most of the autumn season:

Taking time to reflect on the year so far. What do I have achieved and what lessons have I learned?
*
Using the changing season as a motivation for what you want to change or improve in your life. Whether it’s personal, professional, or health-related, autumn can give you a fresh start to commit to positive changes.
*
Taking advantage of the beauty of the autumn colors and embracing the unique flow of this season by spending time in nature. Connecting in some way or form with the changing environment.
*
Autumn’s unique atmosphere can make it easier to be present and mindful. Consciously experiencing the senses like the crunch of leaves under the feet, diving deep into the colors around you, the crispness of the air on the skin and the special smell that comes with it.
*
Just as trees shed their leaves in preparation for winter, we can use this season to declutter our life. Letting go of things that no longer serve us, whether physical possessions or negative habits.
*
The holiday season is just around the corner.
Taking this time to connect with loved ones and strengthen our relationships. The warmth of human connection is a source of comfort and joy especially in the colder months.


“In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty. And that’s the way new leaves grow.”
~ Amit Ray

In embracing the unique flow of autumn, you can find inspiration and motivation to make positive changes in your life and appreciate the beauty of the season.
