A Heartwarming Tale (from a Yogi Flight School Student)

Jul 27, 2021

At Yogi Flight School, we are dedicated to making an impact.

This heartwarming testimonial was sent to us by one of our members, and it was simply too amazing not to share!


"Hi all, this is a long post and an emotional one for me. While the breakthrough story challenge was going on, I wanted to write about my experience with YFS. I am not a video person, but I love to scribble down my thoughts. So finally, I finished writing up my breakthrough story.

There are two things during my life that I never realized I was lacking: fear and abundance! I’ve been a fairly independent and confident person throughout my life. I lost my dad when I was 6 years old, and my mom raised me and my two sisters on her own. We didn’t have the cushioning that other kids around my age back then usually had or even the comfort of two parents. I had to start being at home by myself at pretty young age, since there was no luxury of someone walking me home from school or picking me up late at night...

The Right Time

Jul 20, 2021

We tend to wait until the “right time” to do the things we want in life. 

When is the right time? Most of the time, the opportunities that are offered to us, the ones that really stretch us out of our comfort zone, don’t come at the right time. They come at the most inopportune, inconvenient, and least ideal moments. 

AND that’s exactly when we need to lean into them.  

It’s important, though, to understand yourself and truly be in alignment with your wants and needs. Why? Because opportunities for everything are everywhere, and if we just blindly go about accepting them all, we will be quickly overwhelmed and burnt out. 

Once we move into that place of self-alignment, we can stop postponing our lives. How often do we put the things that call to us off because “there’s time for that later?” 

LIFE IS NOW - we are not guaranteed a “later.” The only thing that exists is right now.

When we operate...

The Parents of Yogi Flight School

Jul 06, 2021

Yogi Flight School is grateful to be the home of so many Ninja Parents!

In this article, we asked for a group of volunteers from within our community to share their personal experiences of how participating in Yogi Flight School has impacted them and their children. We received an overwhelming number of parents raising their hands to help! So many, in fact, that we might have to make "The Parents of Yogi Flight School" a regular feature!

You will read about how busy parents find ways to work this practice into their routines and balance the responsibility that they have to themselves and to their children, as well as the unexpected "side-effects" that learning arm balances and inversions within our community has had on their lives.

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...

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...
