SHIVA REA MEETS A PRAIRIE YOGI



Taking in a Shiva Rea class has been on my bucket list for many, many years. Coming from the Canadian prairies, it isn't often that yogic sages come to pay us a visit. So when planning my Wanderlust Colorado schedule, Shiva Rea was on the top of my list. DJ Fabian Alsultany accompanied Rea, offering musical vibrations for the entire space. 

“Meditation is like being a drummer of consciousness.” Rea told the class as each yogi synchronistically tipped back into downward dog. Throughout yesterday's vinyasa flow class, Shiva Rea's voice softly reminded us repeatedly throughout our practice to feel our asanas from the beginning, middle, and the end.

She explained this to basically be the definition of vinyasa.

“It's any cycle that really follows that complete arc. It's deep in our biology, everything is wave motion, it has a beginning, middle and an end.”

After class, we had the chance to speak with her and she completely embodied everything I imagined: grace, beauty, deep knowing. I remember sitting directly across from Rea at the end of her class. They say that yoga is a reflection of yourself and I couldn't help thinking that this is what I want my reflection to look like.

Rea also shared her thoughts on meditation, connectedness and the challenges finding these in urban centres.

“I've been teaching vinyasa for over twenty years and it's always a challenge, especially in urban centres, to bring people into a natural rhythm. There is this connectedness that we're focusing on. The meditative state is a state of rhythmic entrainment and when you're disconnected from the rhythm, meditation is impossible.”

Not only has Wanderlust Colorado been an amazing adventure, I've also knocked off another goal on my bucket list. As we share our last day of Wanderlust Colorado I encourage you to take a look at your bucket list and cross something off of it. Set your goal, experience it and enjoy a beautiful life.

10 TIPS FOR NEW YOGA TEACHERS


YAY! You’ve just graduated from your first teacher training program. Now what?!
Here are some tips to keep in mind as you launch from your teacher training program into the Seat of a Teacher:

Be a student first and foremost.

At one point in your experience as a yoga student, there was a moment of inspiration where you were curious about what a yoga teacher training was all about, right? Otherwise, you probably wouldn’t have taken the course in the first place. Whether you wanted only to deepen your practice or to spread your wings and actually teach yoga, your practice served as your inspiration. Let it continually do so.

Keep learning.

The moment you stop learning, you stop investing in your education, you stop dedicating time to your practice, you lose it. Inspiration will dissipate - quickly. Make time. You gotta get on your mat and sweat a little - or a lot. Go check out a new teacher or a different style of yoga and attend some workshops, trainings, yoga festivals or yoga conferences. Advancing your education will develop your teaching and translate into value and confidence. The moment you stop investing in your own transformation, you will be less effective at being an inspiring teacher. It’s simple: when you stay inspired, you will inspire your students.

Clarity is key.

Clear, simple, straightforward teaching and language is timeless. New teachers often feel compelled to exude their authenticity with innovative sequencing, fancy philosophy or creative language, but this all takes practice to do in an artfully and intelligent way. Use your presence and your voice in an authentic, confident, clear and direct manner. As your teaching unfolds so, too, will your unique expression of the art of yoga.

Keep it real, yo!

Speak to your students the way you would like to be spoken to. Use real, authentic language, even if you choose to incorporate Sanskrit or philosophical terms and concepts. No one wants to hear that breathing through their third eye will help them levitate or that if they embody the essence of a snowflake they will somehow be further enlightened. Ensure your instructions reach your students and give people real tools they can practically apply using real words, yo.

Less is more.

Life can already be complicated; yoga doesn’t have to be.
Don’t feel like you have to say everything you know about every pose. Offer enough guidance and then give the students space to be. Say what needs to be said to get your students into the pose with healthy alignment, cue the breath and (if appropriate) mention your theme and that is all. Allow for the experience of yoga. Remember: silence is golden.  


Teach, teach, teach.

Teach as much as you can, whenever you can, wherever you can. Experience is one of the best ways to grow as a teacher. Crappy classes are gonna happen AND amazing classes will, too. The best teachers are the ones who make mistakes and who learn in the wake of their failure. When classes don’t go according to plan, reflect on what went well, what you could do better next time, and then let the experience go. Trust yourself, trust your practice and like Pattabhi Jois says, “Do your practice and all is coming.” Just as you practice your practice, practice your teaching.

Be prepared . . . to be spontaneous.

Have a plan but be prepared to deviate from it and cultivate the skill to go with the flow so that you can best serve your students by teaching who is in front of you - which may not be appropriate to what you had originally planned. One of the defining features of life is spontaneity - a great quality for every yoga teacher to keep in her back pocket.

See the Divine in your students. 

See your students as whole, spiritual beings not body parts and techniques. Humans are multidimensional - and you never know what your students are bringing to their mats. Remember this when a student approaches you or when you approach your students. This is particularly important when offering students hands on assists. Ensure to observe the big picture of what your student is trying to achieve instead of zooming in on them and “fixing” their pose. Look for the good in your students and teach in a way that brings makes them shinier! Uplift and empower every student so that they walk off their mat feeling brighter than when they started their class.

Be authentic.

Put yourself into your teaching, teach what inspires you about yoga, teach from your experience of yoga, share yourself with your students. Nuff said.

Take on an attitude of gratitude.

Be grateful to your students for coming to class. The fact that your students are taking time out of their day to come to your class, pay their hard earned money, listen to what you have to say and be guided by you as a teacher is a blessing. And as one of my teachers, Chris Chavez, shared with me: “every student is a gift.”

Respect & Serve

Treat your students how you would like to be treated. Challenge your students, but be mindful to avoid pushing your students beyond their abilities to where they may be injured. There are numerous ways to challenge your students in safe way so that they feel empowered instead of defeated.
Remember that teaching isn’t about you. You are there to serve your students in the highest capacity that you can offer. Keep in mind:


”No one is ever really taught by another; each of us has to teach him/herself. The external teacher offers only the suggestion, which arouses the internal teacher who helps us to understand things.” ~Swami Vivekananda

WHY SEANE CORN LOVES VINYASA - WANDERLUST



ARTICLE ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR WANDERLUST JOURNAL.

Seane Corn is the embodiment of an independent woman. Corn's Vinyasa class at Wanderlust Colorado was a packed house, and she took inspiration from the recent Independence Day in her signature Vinyasa flow practice. She inspired the class to think about what independence means, and reminded us to appreciate the freedoms that we enjoy simply because of the country we live in. In the final Vinyasa sequence, Corn encouraged the class to send love to military troops, regardless of our personal feelings about war.
We got to sit down with the yoga legend after class, and despite having fans all over the Wanderlust Colorado grounds, Corn seems to effortlessly keep her ego in check.
“I come from roots that keep me grounded. If I made any of this about me, my Jersey girls would put me in my place,” Corn laughs.
With the intention to use her platform of yoga for social activism rather than personal gain, Corn wants to help inspire more activists in the world through the self-reflection process of yoga.
“The practice of yoga is one that asks us to know ourselves and engage in a process of self-reflection and self-awareness every time we get on the mat.”
Corn, a social activist since she her teenager years, is using her platform of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism across the world.
“In my youth I was an activist, but the rage I carried with me made those efforts misdirected at times. It was through the discovery of yoga that I was able to work through my pain and resistance and come to access my hope and faith.”
Corn has teamed up with Toyota for the Wanderlust Festival season to raise money for her charity. Until the end of summer, Toyota will donate $3 to Off The Mat and Into The World for each Tweet & Instagram (reTweets count too!) with the hashtag #ToyotaGiving.

A SIMPLE TRUTH

In this life, there is one simple truth that I have learned, and it can be applied to so many aspects of life....

You get out what you put in. 

It's as simple as that.

If you want love - Give love. To everyone. Be loving

It's amazing what happens when you begin to lead with your heart rather than your ego, when you give love without expecting anything in return: you become surrounded with the love you've created.


If you want to be richer Put money in the bank.

My father, a wise man and a financial planner, would always say: "it isn't about how much money you make, it's about have much you save." If you have an empty bank account at the end of each  month, it doesn't matter if you're making $50,000 or $100,000... you're not getting any richer. Live beneath your means, spend less than you earn, save what's left, and watch it grow. Drive your car until it runs into the ground, live in a home that's just the right size for your family, cook at home, don't buy what you don't need or can't afford. Don't look rich, be rich.


If you want better friendships Be a better friend. Listen intently. 

Don't gossip or speak behind your friends back. Listen. Really listen. Treat your friends as you want them to treat you. Understand that we are all human and we all make mistakes. Treat them to a coffee or cocktail or yoga class once in a while :).

If you want a good body - Put good into it. Eat good food. Drink H20.

Let me precede that by good body, I mean a body that feels good. Good bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Put good things into your body: lots of fruits, veggies, and compliments. Stay hydrated and you will feel lighter, your skin will look brighter.  Treat your body with love and respect - even the parts you wish were different - and accept and love it for all that it is and isn't.


If you want respect - Be respectful. Respect others. Respect yourself. 

Respect, like love, cannot be demanded from or coerced out of people; the best way to get it, is to give it. It is virtually impossible to be able to treat others respectfully and have others treat you with respect when you don't respect yourself. Start there.

If you want a better relationship - Be a better parter. Love selflessly.

If you wish your partner would write you love letters or drop off sweet surprises for you at work. Do those things for them. Show your partner how it is you want to be loved rather than demand it. You want them to want to do those sweet things for you- not because you told them to. Do sweet things for them without expecting anything in return.

CHANGE YOUR MIND. CHANGE YOUR LIFE.



About ten years ago, word on the street was that Vinyasa Yoga, also known as Flow Yoga, was the IT thing to help people access inner wisdom and find true happiness. While I was skeptical of yoga and what it was all about, I was open to the possibility that if my breath and body moved as one then just maybe my life would align and get into the flow as well. 

And so I jumped into the flow of Vinyasa Yoga.


While so many power yogis simply want their asanas kicked into great shape, I ventured to yoga with the intention of breathing a little easier. I sought out courage in warrior poses, stability in tree pose, freedom in backbends and peace in lotus pose. They say in yoga, when the outer body is still then the mind can begin to slow down.

For me, my mind would race about everything that I need to accomplish before the end of the day and throughout the week, silently reminding myself to call my Grandma, to pick up toilet paper on the way home, remember to get Dad's Father's Day card in the mail ... stop it, I would tell myself. Concentrate on your breath. It's speeding up. Slow down. Inhale. One. Two. Three. Exhale. One. Two. Three. Positive thoughts. Why can't you do that? Blessings! Count them! Think happy thoughts. Fresh air on a warm summer morning. My wedding day. Go there. Now!


What's this yoga thing really all about? Oh, right: to feel good. To breathe easier. To be happy.

Eventually, I discovered a tiny corner of yogi in me when I realized something unusual happening. My life was transforming: a sense of balance and joy began to infuse every day – even if was a fleeting moment. I felt happier. I wanted more. With an aura of inner calm and clarity, it seemed like the most natural progression to sign up for a Yoga Teacher Training.

yoga teacher training, yoga public, winnipeg yoga, yoga friend, om,
Erica and her most recent group of 200hr Teacher Training Graduates in Winnipeg, MB


I showed up with a yoga mat slung over my shoulder, a pair of lululemon pants hugging my butt, a soy matcha latte in hand, and an attitude that I could save the world and make a difference in people's lives – even though I had NO intention of teaching yoga ... ever.

I was experiencing so many benefits from my yoga practice (yes, I could breathe easier!) that I wanted to learn more. If my asthmatic symptoms were under control, what else could yoga do for me?

Yoga Teacher Training is more than just a yoga class; it's a journey into personal transformation and evolution. Not only did I come to a deeper understanding of yoga while exploring my commitment to healthy living but I also found my voice and am able to articulate myself with greater clarity and grace. I won't deny that it's an emotional experience. It is dramatically empowering, career-enhancing, life altering, and it allowed me to catch a glimpse of my true potential in every aspect of my life. 

A decade later, and five teacher trainings under my belt, I am now a certified yoga teacher that teaches classes, workshops and - you guessed it - Yoga Teacher Trainings around the world. Not only is my life - and my teaching - charged with positive energy, confidence, and compassion but my entire life lite up and everything just seemed to have fallen into place. Amidst my experiences on the mat, I have learned to own my experiences: the good; the bad; the beautiful; and the ugly. I have learned that life is a blessing and that less is more.


While I'm still on the quest for eternal happiness, I attribute my cheerful, regular-girl aura with a back-to-basics attitude to my longstanding dedication to Vinyasa Yoga - the new wave of minimalism that simplifies life rather than complicates it. 


I guess that's what they mean by feeling in the flow.

BODY + SOUL IN TUNE WITH BODY BY VI






My life was run by food: when was I going to eat? What was I going to eat? How could I convince my husband to take me out for dinner.” Karly Vialoux, a busy mom who runs a home daycare and commercial cleaning company, reflects on her life before the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge.

At 24 years old, after unsuccessful attempts with diets and programs like Slim Fast and LA Weight Loss, Karly found herself at her heaviest at 5 feet tall and 152lbs, since she had her baby Landen. Shortly after her 24th birthday, Karly started the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge.

I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Same with everyone in my family. We have a weight issue. I needed to find something that worked, that I could work into my lifestyle. I set the goal to lose 30 lbs in 90 days,” Karly explains.

Karly's coach and Body By Vi coach Orest Serwylo said that her initial goal may have been aggressive, but could see how much she wanted to gain balance for herself and her family.

The Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge promotes healthy eating and weight loss by replacing two meals a day with a Body by Vi nutritional shake that is full of protein and nutrients, cutting out sugars and processed foods, and eating a balanced meal for dinner. The flavour possibilities for the shakes are endless, and Karly enjoyed hers with almond milk and frozen berries.

You're putting good stuff into your body and it fuels you with good energy,” Karly says of the way she began to feel once she started her road to reaching her goal.

So here we are, 90 days later... Did she do it?

This is the first time that I have genuinely found something that worked. I almost reached my goal and lost 27 pounds!” Karly exclaimed, smiling ear to ear. “I am so happy, I am just over the moon.”

Since her 90 Day Challenge, Karly is not only happier, but she has found the courage to head back to the gym, a place she once avoided due to rows of mirrors she had to face, and loves group classes including hot yoga.

Now I have my regular nutritional shake before the gym. I want to be fit and active. When I started this, it was about losing weight. Now I just want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have more energy to play with my five year old Landen now. I don't want to stop that.” Karly says of maintaining the Body By Vi program and healthy lifestyle after the 90 day challenge.

I want to be able to go camping and fishing. I want to be a fun mom.”


Your Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge could be about taking your practice to the next level by building and maintaining leaner muscle. Better nutrition can help focus the mind and help balance your body. Body By Vi is a special blend of three proteins that is low fat, low sodium, low sugar, gluten free, and heart friendly with 25 vitamins.

It tastes good, and more importantly, it works. Mentally and physically I just feel amazing,” said Karly.

A Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge isn't simply for weight loss, there are programs for weight gain, training for your fitness goals, or even to help you get the most of your next 30 day yoga challenge.

Any questions for Karly about her successful Body by Vi journey can be emailed to karly.beavis@gmail.com. To learn more about finding your balance with Body by Vi or to create your own 90 Day Challenge, contact Orest Serwylo: orests@shaw.ca

A BALANCED LIFE IN DES MOINES


What brings the vice president of a private equity firm to quit his job on Wall Street and open a yoga studio in Des Moines, Iowa?

Balance. Both on and off the mat.

The lifestyle Adam Geneser had managed to maintain until 2008 was incredibly stressful. Eighty-hour work weeks were typical and travel would often pull him farther away from home.

"It was crazy. Just crazy," said Adam.

After making the decision to move to Denver in hopes of slowing down, Adam and his wife Stephanie packed their bags one last time to Des Moines, where the couple first met.

In 2008, Stephanie began her yoga teacher training and Adam had become her first student- or practice dummy, as Adam puts it.

"At first I thought it was too expensive and a waste of money," said Adam.

But something clicked for him. Soon after, Adam began his yoga certification training with Core Power Yoga. The high school sweethearts left corporate America for good and opened their own yoga studio: Power Life Yoga.

"It's a great place to raise a family. The community is awesome here. " said Adam.


The move couldn't have come at a more important time for the Geneser family. Shortly after, Adam's three year old niece, Hannah, died in a tragic accident. A window screen gave way and she fell out of the window.

"It really put things into perspective for us."

Adam's brother and sister-in-law started a charity on Hannah's behalf to promote the general cause of childhood safety - with special emphasis on window safety - through public awareness and educational opportunities. Adam also runs donation yoga classes where all of the proceeds go towards The Hannah Geneser Foundation.

Adam, a lululemon ambassador, credits yoga and the Des Moines community as a big part of getting through such a tragedy.

"My brother, Hannah's dad, practices here nearly every day. People have been so supportive." said Adam.

Now, Adam and Stephanie are planning to open a second studio in Des Moines. Eighty hour work weeks are a thing of the past. The couple now have a one-year old son that is always around the Power Life Yoga studio.

"He thinks he runs the show around here." Adam laughs.

6 WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR RISK OF 'THE BIG C'



Cancer – the scary word we all know too well. One in three people will get ‘the big C’ in their lifetime. ONE IN THREE. It comes in all forms, all stages, all severities – none of them fun to have, none of them fun to watch. These staggering numbers can change for the better if we start taking better care of our bodies. After all, your body is your temple and you only get one, so if you want it to take care of you, you must take care of it. If you can, you must.

Let me please preface this article with the fact that there are numerous contributing factors to consider when talking about cancer and cancer prevention. Your genetic or heredity influence, environment, daily exercise, stress management – all come into play. This article is with regards to nutrition – a few tweaks and changes everyone can make to their daily eating habits can help cancer patients stay strong to fight and truly make a valiant effort in cancer prevention. I should also state that my knowledge on this subject comes from a passion for health and nutrition, daily research and reading on the subject, and evidence I have personally witnessed – not from being a doctor. With all that said, let me introduce you to the Alkaline Diet.


Chow down on an anti-inflammatory diet.

Fill up daily on leafy green and root vegetables, onions, garlic, herbs and spices, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, avocado, mushrooms, cabbage, beans, lentils, peas, nuts and seeds. Two or three pieces of fruit a day are great, and olive oil might just be your new best friend. A small amount of non-gluten grains, a serving or two of clean and organic fish, poultry or eggs per week help bring that inflammation down. Raw is best for your fruits and veggies preparation. For more details, Dr. Andrew Weil (one of the leading experts in the world on integrative medicine and someone I admire from here to the moon and back) provides everything you need to know here - http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02012/anti-inflammatory-diet


See ‘ya sugar!

I know – this is immensely difficult to do! Who doesn’t love a piece of cake, a chocolate bar, some candy here and there? Let’s remember the 80/20 rule when it comes to your health. If you are making healthy choices 80% of the time, and 20% “not so much”…you’re doing great. Work that split up to 85/15 and eventually to 90/10…you’re golden! Sugar really does wreak total havoc on your body – from suppressing your immune system to promoting toxins, it really is the devil of food. Try to find substitutes to shake that sugar craving – stevia is an incredible healthy substitute to sweeten everything, dark chocolate and raw cacao nibs are delicious, or fresh or dried fruit can curb that sweet tooth craving. You can do it, I promise!


Peace out” gluten.

Gluten causes inflammation. Inflammation promotes cancer. That’s it in a nutshell. So avoid high-gluten grains in pasta, cereal, bread, muffins, cakes, crackers and cookies. There are tons of healthy alternatives on the market today so get out there are try those! Yummy in your tummy!


Bye-bye dairy.

Take it all out - and not just the kind from the cow, or ‘without lactose’. Again – this inflammation factor is hurting you on the inside! But not to fret – again there are so many terrific alternatives on the market these days. Almond milk and rice milk are my personal favorites. There are cheese, yogurt and even ice cream options available to substitute. So remember – you’re not taking everything away, you’re adding in goodness. That is really important to remember when making changes to your lifestyle and your nutrition. It’s not about what you will lose, but rather what you will gain.


Oil up with these hot little numbers - olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil

Organic when possible, always cold-pressed and natural, these oils are naturally anti-inflammatory which can sooth and heal cancerous or pre-cancerous cells. Plain and simple.


Whatcha drinkin’?

I feel its pretty wide-spread knowledge that alcohol consumption is not great for your body. High–sugar fruit juice – a close second. The best thing to quench your thirst? Warm or cold lemon water is ‘the man’ when it comes to something to wet your whistle. Vegetable juice, especially carrot and beet juice, green, sage, peppermint and ginger teas are also fabulous.

The Alkaline Diet might seem like a lot of change to some at first glance. There are a few important things to remember.

First, knowledge is a key first step. Are you going to throw away everything in your cupboards and start living a completely strict diet over night? Heck no! So pick one or two from the above list and bring them into your daily routine. Eventually you’ll be able to add them all…but take your time to get there. Don’t feel rushed. Do it because you want to and you will feel better because of it.

Second, the 80/20 rule. Believe me, my diet is far from perfect. But I try to make conscious choices that are good for my insides. To be healthy. To live a long, energetic inspiring life.

Lastly but definitely not least, think of what you will gain rather than what you will lose. Yes, you’re losing gluten, sugar and dairy. But you’re gaining energy, health and life. When you remember the gain, it truly is an easy trade off.
