Moving Through Stagnation ~ Tapas ~ The Fire Within

Moving Through Stagnation ~ Tapas ~ The Fire Within

October 22, 2019

Today we invite you into our Shanti Yoga Training School, as we dive into one of the many concepts of yoga philosophy and how it affects our life. Nathalie teaches weekly zoom sessions to yoga students and teachers across the Globe, today you are our guest. Welcome to our training school. 

Tapas is a big concept in yoga. Often translated as the “fire that burns within,” the discipline of tapas is one aspect that really resonates with Nathalie. She explains how the concept of tapas has assisted her through tough times.

The fact that we are alive, have a human body, have a consciousness, and have an awareness is quite a miracle. We should never take it for granted; it should always be treated as a gift. Nathalie says that when you see life in this way, you begin to be very grateful for everything that you are.

We all know somebody, or have been that person, who is never happy. They say they want something, they get it, but it’s not good enough. Nathalie reveals what to do if you’re in this mindset, including living in the present moment. Joy is a feeling that we can only have in the now.

Today Nathalie asks, what is it that’s holding you back? It’s time to rise above and move forward through the fire of your life. Sometimes our biggest failures are out biggest teachers, so surrender to the discomfort. You will come out as a better person.

#40 Being In Your Purpose With David Bianchi

#40 Being In Your Purpose With David Bianchi

November 24, 2018

David Bianchi - Hollywood actor and spoken-word poet.

He has appeared in over 90 professional and independent films.

David speaks about being a multi-faceted artist and about his soon to be released book. 

Nathalie & David met in third grade while attending Greengates School in Mexico city and later reconnected in Los Angeles, CA. 

We hear about how David was born with the genetic coding to be the artist and that knowing this allows him to excel in life; he says that people who aren’t in touch with their genetic or molecular gift often tend to coast in life. David talks about the process of discovering this gift and refining it. He also shares his tough school life, including being expelled from six high schools.

 

David’s book will be titled Pursue, Reach, Attain, Retain, Repeat and carries a significant message in its title to which he provides insight. The book itself is about looking at the stages of how to pursue our molecular-level gift and use it continuously. David then answers how to find out what our gift is and talks about when he realized he needed to make major changes in his life.

 David’s artistic mission is to effect people in a way that will leave them permanently changed. He wants to remind everyone that everything we need is within us. There’s nothing outside that will make us become wealthier and more spiritual people. It’s inside of us.

Quotes:

“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” - Aadil Palkhivala, Fire of Love

 

There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatsoever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others." - Martha Graham

About Our Shanti Yoga Teacher Training School :

Here is one testimonial from one of our teacher training graduates who is now teaching yoga all over the Globe :)
 
" My experience at Shanti Yoga Shala is very difficult to put into words because it literally changed my life. 
First of all, the way the opportunity to come train at the Shala was the perfect way to start what would be a beautiful journey.
I was looking for teacher trainings in the New Orleans area and I happened to come across a Vinyasa Teacher Training. which was exactly what I was looking for. At the moment I was in Panama (where I am from) and I immediately called Nathalie to book a spot and the training happened to be full. Luckily for me we had an immediate connection (over the phone!!) and she promised that if someone cancelled she would call me right away and because the Universe works in wonderful ways that is exactly what happened next. 
The day she called to let me know someone had cancelled was probably the happiest day of 2014!!
After that things just got better.
In a short period of 5 months my life changed. I had turned around the way I practiced, I had learned more than in the past 3 years of college, I was able to begin teaching in the beautiful space, and I became part of an amazing family , the Shanti Yoga Love Warriors. 
Nathalie and the whole Shanti Yoga Family are definitely a blessing and they were put in my way to help me grow and blossom.
The Shala became my second home while I was in New Orleans and I miss it every single day.
I recommend coming to practice here and I definitely recommend taking the Teacher Training if you wish to deepen your practice and/or teach.
As I said before, my experience at Shanti changed my life and I am infinitely grateful <3 
Namaste,
Aurora Brenes "
