MASTER YOUR LIFE! - IS THIS SOMETHING FOR YOU?

Along my personal journey one of my greatest insights Ive gained is, that Im able to take my life OFF my shoulders and IN MY HANDS.

With given opportunities I create and I build it in integrity with my values and as a contribution to the world around me. 

Its really an ongoing process.
It's the greatest challenge, yet the beauty of life and essence of our collectivity - to discover our own individuality and suitably live it in the environment of all areas in our daily life. 

 

MASTER YOUR LIFE is exactly about this: a holistic personal development program. 

It’ll take you deep and transform your life long-lasting. 
When you allow yourself to do it. 

Developed by my dear friends and colleagues Rita Sambado and Rodrigo Maia de Loureiro in this 3-day program we'll together offer you Ashtanga Yoga, Meditation, profound Life Coaching and Healthy Food. 

You'll be ask to have a truthful look in all dimensions of your life, review them deeply, envision them clearly and plan steps to put them in action- in health & well-being, family, intimacy, spiritual life, social life, work and material world.

Im SO honoured to be able to guide you through your personal Ashtanga Yoga practice within this program. 

Rita and I, we share an unshakeable trust in this ancient form of Yoga and believe strongly in the implementation of its practice in this program. 

Because it fulfils essential tasks: 

Ashtanga Yoga will let you experience your sensations and examine your thoughts through your own body.

It’s different from just “thinking” them through with your mind. 

This unique practice simply but clearly mirrors your individuality, your way of acting and responding in life. Raw and honest. And yet, it’ll hold you safe and sacred. 

The daily morning practice opens you up, makes you aware and receptive for the following tasks in the program, which you want to engage from an inner place. Also, it clears you out before stepping into a new session. 

 

Take your life in your own two hands! 
This program will run from 6-8 October 2017 with 35% off the current value.

Get it for 390€ instead of 600€! 

Don’t hesitate when you’ve got the slightest tickle, thought or sense of doing it! 
It’ll be life-changing. 

When you need to take doubts or have last questions answered, please send an eMail to: rodrigo@eus-school.com. Rita and Rodrigo will reply promptly.

WRITE YOUR "LETTING GO LIST" FOR THIS SUMMER

Im a freak of lists, maps, drawings and writings of my insights, thoughts, ideas, dreams and experience in my practice of Ashtanga Yoga and life. Occasionally, I’ll go back there, read them through to have a reference to where I’ve come and how I got there. 

I noticed, it sometimes happens that I write around what I really want to say, feel and need to do. 

One of those “things” is LETTING GO. 

Im not going to write an article about HOW TO LET GO IN SIX STEPS. 
Id just like to share, what I figured. 

 

  1. It can be all sorts of, not only elements that are tangible, rational and easily visible: thoughts, self-talk, dreams, delusions, pattern, pain, people.
  2. It takes time to acknowledge. It needs to dwell within and be felt in order to get clear about what is what: For example: reality is what is and not the delusion on my mind; a pain, that Iv overcome; a dream that doesn’t fit anymore in the current vision of life. FEEL it! 
  3. Letting go arises consequences and a sense of a white space. You may call it emptiness but I prefer white space. Often, these consequences and this white space of unknown are the ones, that cause anxiety, insecurity and a feeling of not belonging and being protected.
  4. To know the vision of my life is essential: It helps me to surrender to the white space and let it fill with what servers best in this current phase. I find a good balance between action and surrender. 
  5. Courage and Curiosity are my great helpers to dare and take the leap: Courage makes me actually do it and curiosity inspires my joy of engaging and exploring a new phase of my life.
  6. Be gracious and grateful: how I say good bye is more important than the first moment, a thought occurred or a friend stepped into my life. The way of saying Good Bye truly reveals the dynamic of a self-talk, pattern or connection to a person. Letting go is as much as saying no to it as it is to say YES to myself and that Id love to do with respect, compassion and kindness.   

 

So, the other day I wrote me “Letting Go List” and very much felt without ground after. Lots of white space. Actually Im quite scared floating in it. Great thanks to my personal Ashtanga Yoga practice. It keeps reminding me, what it feels like to stay present in a position and just feel my breath and observe what thoughts, emotions arise. Without judgement. Without attachment. To then act upon my inner truth simply move on to the next pose. (If it was so easy ;)).

Gradually, Ive began to enjoy the white space and used it wisely to go ahead, to engage deeper in life and my work, to enjoy and feel adventurous, ambitious, young and open. 

An inspiring amount of wonderful reasons here, to write, draw, map your own “Letting Go List”! Share in the comments below, what you feel its ready to let go, why and how you did and are going to do it!

Summer is here! So, enjoy it with its lightness and sweetness of freedom. 

 

Talking about lightness: 
In August Zion and I will be travelling for two weeks.

NEVER BE YOU. PRACTICE YOU.

As a Yoga Teacher my personal practice and self-study have high priority. Together, they build the foundation for teaching. I believe, only what I have experienced, I am able to share within the tradition and to apply accordingly. 

Unlikely as it is often assumed, a Yoga Teacher actually lives as a human; someone also filled with darkness so the inner light may shine, someone also dealing with struggles and growing through them.

I am saying this, because November this year wasn’t really an easy month for me personally. Obstacle followed by obstacle. 

Funnily enough, words I wrote exactly one year ago, came across, while thumbing through my diary to look for inspiration, to look for answers. These are the words and they helped me through: 

 

Never BE YOU! PRACTICE YOU!
Observe.Live.Review.Change. 
We have the generous possibility of making choices - over and over again. 
In any given moment. 
For that, there are no mistakes. 
No completion. 
Just Learning. Letting Go.
This is Inner Freedom.
Fear channels into Courage. 
Courage leads to Action. 
Action is Joy.
JOY OF LIFE
