Silvia Mordini’s Top Ten Reflections for Yoga Teachers

  1. Anchor Imparo. At the age of 87 — after a lifetime of discovery, innovation, and creation — Michelangelo declared, “I am still learning.” As yogis, this is a familiar sentiment as we dedicate ourselves to life-long learning. It a reminder that our potential for expansion is never complete — and a mantra that Silvia holds close to heart.
  2. Be Kind. In practicing the first Yama, Ahimsa, as a cornerstone to you being, kindness is expressed toward yourself + all living creatures.
  3. Be Generous. Expand your definition of generosity to include wealth in all forms — be generous with your time, your intellect, your knowledge — practice with a spirit of abundance.
  4. Meditate Always. Even if you only have one minute — your mind, body, and spirit will thank you for time in stillness.
  5. Your Students Are On Your Side — and so is the universe! 
  6. Self-Care if Not Selfish: Take time for yourself — as Silvia says, “Self-love is the most advanced pose.
  7. Love Yourself.
  8. Love Your Day.
  9. Love Your Life.
  10. Ahem Prema. Always remember, “I Am Love.”
