From Your Mat to Your World

Jun 15, 2021

The beauty of a yoga mat is that it is a safe and separate space from the rest of the world.

Here, you can begin to break down and tear apart the beliefs that you’ve created about yourself. At Yogi Flight School we refer to these beliefs as our stories. 

Our mats are our mirrors. The way that we approach our yoga practice is often the way that we show up in our lives and in the world. 

For example, when you are struggling to nail an arm balance, inversion, or even one of the more common yoga poses that you’ve been working on for what feels like an eternity or perhaps are simply unable to do that day, how do you respond? 

  • How do you talk to yourself? 
  • Do you spiral into a frenzy of frustration? 
  • Do you get angry with yourself and allow it to spill over to those around you?
  • What is the story that you are telling yourself about yourself?

When things don’t happen as you expected them to in life - when you don’t reach your goals in the...

Yoga Ninjas Over the Age of 50

Jun 08, 2021

Yogi Flight School is the proud home of well over 100 yoga ninjas over the age of 50, who are achieving their goals of arm balances and inversions every day.

In this week's featured blog post, we are thrilled to highlight 5 of these brave ninjas, eager to share their wildly individual and unique stories with you!

These women are some of the most active members of our private Facebook group community, posting their own progress, but also a consistent source of encouragement and support to the other members of YFS. We are forever grateful that they've found their way into our program and into our hearts.

...and it's not only women that make up our group of Ninjas over 50-years-old - many of our male members are also within this age group. You can meet some of them in our Men of Yogi Flight School blog post from last week!

They are living, breathing proof that age is just a number, and that no matter where you are in your life journey, you can achieve things that you never thought...

The Men of Yogi Flight School

Jun 01, 2021

Yogi Flight School is a safe place for people of every demographic to learn to nail arm balances and inversions.

Yogi Flight School is the home of a vibrant community of supportive, encouraging, and motivational individuals from all over the world.

The men of Yogi Flight School continue to inspire us each and every day to break through our own limiting beliefs that tell us, "You can't do that," and shift our mindset to, "I CAN and I WILL do that!"

They show us that no matter your gender, age, level of strength, experience with yoga, or history of physical ability, you have the power to do amazing things with your body. All you need is the right people guiding you, a strong support system, an open mind, and the willpower to keep trying.

Don't take it from me. Read on to hear from the Ninjas themselves...


 

Hi! My name is Isidoro. I’m a 57-year-old dental technician and before joining YFS I’d been practicing hatha yoga for 3 years.

Around Christmas of 2020, I saw a...

Yogis Takeover Mexico!

May 05, 2021

What do you do after over a year of restricted travel? A yoga retreat in Mexico!

 

Imagine that you are slowly easing into a wakeful state. Your head is resting so softly on fresh linens that you wonder if you might, in fact, be floating on the clouds. Before you open your eyes, you taste a salty breeze as it caresses your cheek, and hear birds serenading each other just outside of your cabana. Your body is still tingling sweetly from your yoga practice the afternoon before, and you’re filled with excitement for the hiking trip to a private, hidden beach that lies ahead of you today.

 

Now imagine that you don’t have to imagine. You can actually be LIVING this experience in just a few short months from now!

 

Soul Tribe Adventures is offering a week-long yoga and adventure retreat in Sayulita, Mexico in July 2021 and there’s no place you’d rather be!

 

If you are looking for a get-away to one of the most beautiful places in the world...

The one thing that makes all the difference

Jun 19, 2020

Over the past two weeks, we explored my 6 C’s to creating transformation that sticks…. we’ve made it through 5 so far: Connection, Consciousness, Choice, Courage and Commitment….which brings us to our final C:

COMMUNITY.


Making real, lasting change in your life is hard.

Choosing to change habits, our BELIEFS, the things that have kept us comfortable (and small) for all these years is a tall order.

I don’t know about you, but I fare much better when I’m on a journey with others and have people to talk to, lean on & share experiences with.


I thrive when I know there is someone who will notice when I fall, and who will help pick me up.

If you’re struggling, feeling alone, isolated (how could we NOT feel isolated right now?) it’s up to you to reach out and find a community that can be a sounding board, a crash pad and a safe space.

COMMUNITY creates the following:


- ACCOUNTABILITY. Saying you want to make changes is one thing. Community...

What are you committed to?

Jun 13, 2020

Over the last 2 weeks, I've shared with you parts of my 6 step process to creating transformation in your life.

I've loved receiving feedback about where you are in your process - the journey of living authentically and creating a future we love is a journey best walked together - thank you for sharing!

So far we've talked about connection, consciousness, choice and courage - and while all of those things are necessary, without COMMITMENT, nothing sticks.


Commitment
isn’t just about deciding to do something and doing it no matter what - though that’s certainly part of it.

Commitment is deeper than that.

It asks you to dig into your heart and really ask what’s important to you.

It asks you to connect to your WHY - to your vision.

To remember why you are making the choice to change.

It asks you to believe that YOU ARE WORTHY of creating a life of significance, and to continue believing, especially when things get rough.

The first step is asking yourself: "Right now,...
