How are you beautiful?
You know that feeling when you fully and finally complete a project that you’ve been working so hard on, for so long, and that you love so much, yet that’s been so challenging and resistance-full at times?
This is how I’m feeling right now.
Grateful. Satisfied. Proud. Excited. Inspired. Uplifted. Transformed. (excited to rest!)
I’m also feeling a lot of mudita.
This is one of my favourite words in the Yoga tradition. It roughly means, sympathetic joy, or the pleasure that comes from delighting in other people’s well-being.
Tomorrow at Pure Flow Yoga, we celebrate!
It’s the last day of our Yoga Teacher Training here in Koh Phangan, and we’ll be having a well-deserved graduation ceremony celebration for this incredible group of teacher trainees.
I am truly in awe of the perseverance, hard work, dedication, progress and transformation I’ve gotten to witness and experience this past 4 weeks.
It’s not easy to keep showing up, day after day, for 4 weeks of 8 hours a day, 5.5 days a week, saturating ourselves with new information, powerful practices, and ongoing invitations to step outside of the comfort zone…
Atira and I have been truly blown away with joy and pride these past few days as we’ve witnessed and experienced our students gracefully, powerfully, and beautifully step up and into the role of teacher, sharing yoga classes with the world for their first time ever. Truly amazing.
The feeling of mudita for our students is strong. We are so happy for these beautiful people to be moving into the world with more self-trust, self-love, confidence, skills, passion and purpose.
Please send them some of your love if you feel inspired..
When was the last time you felt mudita or sympathetic joy?

Drishti: Find your Balance in Life by Nadia Moon

Good Harvest – Clocks (Coldplay) – Live Session
Such Pretty harmonies. Such a lovely song.
Sorry to bother you, but do you say “sorry” too much? What to say instead
This is great. As a Canadian, I have the tendency to over-apologise. When we needlessly apologise, says sociologist Maja Jovanovic, we end up making ourselves small and diminishing what we’re try to express.
This word “sorry” has been coming up a lot on our teacher training, as the trainees dip their toes in to the waters of teaching. We are all noticing how often this word slips out, and one of our students Mirco, shared this awesome article with us.
This is part of TED’s “How to be a Better Human” series.
