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.

Connecting To Divine Inspiration Through The Crown Chakra

Connecting To Divine Inspiration Through The Crown Chakra

September 4, 2019

This episode brings the seven-episode series about chakras to a conclusion.

Brooke Baudot returns again to provide her expertise on Sahasrara, otherwise known as the crown chakra.

Sahasrara is the lotus of one thousand petals.

We each have a lotus flower that is unique to us, and it is the essence of who we are. Nathalie says that a helpful meditation practice is to close your eyes and begin to imagine your lotus flower.

Journaling questions about your unique lotus flower:

How does it look? How does it feel? This flower is continuously evolving.

Brooke reads the balance characteristics of this chakra, and Nathalie jumps in to stress how important the ability to question is. The two then discuss why finding a connection is crucial, no matter how you refer to it.

When you tap into a frequency that is so clearly tied to the seventh chakra, you can allow other people to participate in it. If you have access to this type of frequency, it is your duty to share it with others. This is what Nathalie has devoted her life to.

You Are Your Authentic Brand

You Are Your Authentic Brand

February 28, 2019

 

We all have our own brand.

It’s so far beyond just, for example, a logo. From Nathalie’s perspective, your brand is an expression and an extension of who you truly are, and that’s what this episode is about.

Hopefully, you have chosen your brand, and it has not chosen you; you are not riding along on a belief system that you have agreed to but is not yours.

In this episode Nathalie goes through ways that we can create from our own self, and while some of those methods may not always be comfortable, they will remove unnecessary energies that are around us. This allows us to get closer to our true self.

Once we do find the connection with who we are and discover what we want to share with the world, Nathalie encourages us to do just that.

We also hear about how relationships can change when we are finding out best self.

Your Are Your Authentic Brand by Nathalie Croix

 

I could tell you to look at others in your field and see what they are doing... I've heard this many times before.

I just don't believe in that.

Not only I have never looked at what other yoga studios are doing, I always went as far as not wanting to know. Not wanting our studio staff to tell me during teachers meetings etc...

The reason behind this is because I feel I am here on this planet to share from my own unique experience.

I want to be me.

As Oscar Wilde says " Be yourself; everyone else is taken."

You are unique and we need you exactly as you are.

How would you feel if everything was red in the world?

Boring.

Thank God, we have many colors ! Yay

That's your brand.

Your brand is you.

Everyday you express your brand. With the words you use, the clothes you wear, the colors you choose.

 

Your social media is an extension of you.

 Journal on these questions and ask yourself while creating your brand / logo / website, etc...

Who Am I ?

What are my favorite colors?

Favorite yoga practice ?

On the mat?

Off the mat?

What is your legacy?

What do you want to say to the world?

Who are the top three people who most inspire me from any walks of life ?

Why do they inspire me ?

Inspiration is very different than wanting to find out what a competitive business is doing so you can duplicate.

.... which many people do just that.

It's just not my way.

I disagree with that way, because It will not feel authentic.

I am here to ask you to think outside the box.

Authenticity is the most important because it is at the heart of your Soul.

Inspiration can lead you to who you are.

I believe the reason why we get inspired by some is because, they, or " it " are representing a version of ourselves and by seeing this in someone else or something else it is simply a reminder of who you are.

Like going back to source, soul family.

Here are some journaling questions for you....

What lights up your day?

What words better represent you?

Remember your favorite day on Planet Earth , how did that feel to you?

Can you go back to that feeling?

Create from that sacred space.

Create more scared places, experiences in your life.

Every day gives you the opportunity to discover yourself.

Use all of the above and create from this place of authenticity -

You will find your brand !

Once you do, please do us all a favor and share it with the world.

You will inspire others to become a better version of themselves.

Remember the world needs you exactly as you are.

Stay open to new ideas, stay open to growth.

As time passes your brand may change, evolve or even transform into A NEW YOU.

I have seen this many times.

Embrace it.

The only constant is change.

The people in your life who love you will allow you to become who you are at every moment in life, even if that means they have to set you free.

Not free in a way that you don't honor your commitments - no, not like that.

Above all I am loyal to my commitments.

See the more you allow someone to be who they are, the better they will show up for you. Not only they will show up as a better version of themselves but they will cherish you more.

If they truly love you they will welcome the new you and overtime they will begin to understand you more and perhaps even be inspired by you.

Maybe, just maybe, you will remind them of something so special and precious deep inside them that has been lost.

How beautiful life can be when we allow flow in our lives and the lives of those we love.

When that happens, don't be afraid to show up to the world as the new you.

Be you.

Change your logo if that's what feels right.

Change it as many times as you need.

Keep your feet on the Earth, as you look up to the skies.

 

Daily Exercise :

Look at the mirror / look at yourself for ten seconds and say out loud " I Am Beautiful"

 

Let your light shine !

Every choice we make brings us closer to the light or further from the light.

As Gandhi’s famous say “Be The Change You Want To See In The World”. As with everything in life what you get is what you put into it.

Another famous quote I love is “If You Want To Make The World A Better Place, Take A Look At Yourself & Make A Change “.

Dive in all you do. Commit. Grow.

Is not always easy, but necessary.

You are the light.

To all my tribe members out there - Thank You - for stepping into the Fire & for trusting me as your guide. I see the light in you & I know that because of you the world is a better place.

It’s quite the honor we get to journey together.

Your Soul Shines Bright

#38 Yoga Tradition with Melanie Fawer Going Back To Mysore

#38 Yoga Tradition with Melanie Fawer Going Back To Mysore

September 23, 2018

Today’s guest is Melanie Fawer, an ashtanga yoga teacher who is certified by Pattabhi Jois. We hear about how her first trip to India made her fall in love with yoga, in part due to the differences she saw in it there compared to the US. That first trip to India was in 1994, so we discuss the changes that Melanie has seen in yoga since then.

 

Melanie teaches Mysore style yoga. She shares with us why it is so special to her and what exactly makes it unique. She continues to be impressed at how genius the style is. Then, we learn about the usefulness of led classes and other inspirations that Melanie draws from. Because ashtanga classes are sometimes taught incorrectly, we hear about this causing some people to falsely dislike it. A proper class takes a lot of observation from the teacher.

 

Only internally can we truly know when the next level of evolution needs to happen, which causes Melanie to share how we can find our true potential. It’s important to have a support group, but Melanie feels like she hasn’t had that foundation until about five years ago. Related to this, she offers advice on what to do on the days that feel gloomy.

 

An important aspect of Mysore style is connecting with one teacher; going to different studios and teachers may lead to selling yourself short. Melanie discusses this and points out what to keep in mind when starting Mysore style yoga.

#25 - Keep The Fire Burning with Angela Kukhahn

#25 - Keep The Fire Burning with Angela Kukhahn

February 6, 2018

Angela Kukhahn joins Nathalie for a discussion all about yoga! Yoga lovers, especially teachers, will not want to miss this one. Nathalie and Angela talk about being a yoga teacher, tools and techniques developed along the way, and more.

As yogis and yoga teachers, we’re always growing and evolving. Our views on what was right at one point in time can easily change, and often do, over the years.

Angela shares what inspires her to inspire others while teaching and how to address the individual in a group setting.

We hear about the use of props like blocks, belts, and blankets. Props bring many benefits, although some people have concerns about their use. Is it right to want to stick with some yoga traditions from the past, or is it okay to evolve and accept the use of props?

Social media provides great opportunities to connect and share information. Angela tells us about the growth of her Instagram account to over 80,000 followers, the dedication involved with running such an account, and even how to deal with periodic negative comments.

Everybody is on their own spiritual journey, as yoga teachers, we can only share our own experiences and aim to create the best scenario possible for students to experience their own journey.
