I TEACH BECAUSE I CARE

2017-kauai.jpeg
January 2017 – sunset yoga Kauai, Hawaii

Seven years ago I attended a yoga retreat where I set an intention to manifest my dream. After being led through a process of inquiry and, making a declaration in the present tense, I simply wrote “I am a yoga teacher.”  Four days after my retreat I was invited to sub a yoga class, although I had not yet started my yoga teacher training (I was a certified fitness instructor.)  It didn’t matter, I taught anyway, rocked the class, and I began my path as a yoga teacher.  Was that coincidence?  Abolutely not!  There is power in putting out energy for what you want, and what I asked for was a “job” which allowed me to connect to my sacred path and support others in walking in their sacred footsteps.  Duh! Yoga!

My teaching path has led me more towards the spiritual aspect of yoga, through the physicality of flowing and holding yoga poses (asana.) When I teach from my heart, and see my students, I sense  I am in my greatest flow when I connect to why I really teach: I teach because I care. I believe in namaste: May all beings be free of suffering.   I’ve experienced my share of suffering, and in life, suffering happens…shit happens.  Yoga, meditation, and rewiring my brain has taught me to sift through the crap and go with the flow.  I speak to this often in my classes and craft workshops dedicated to releasing self-limiting beliefs and choosing and generating an experience of ease.  In this moment, in this chapter of my life, I feel called to spread the news that contentment, joy, laughter and love are possible and there is a way out of the muck of depression, anxiety, and despair.  I KNOW this to be true.  I’ve been there and I do the work to choose the path of least resistance instead of my old pattern of wallowing in the muck.  And, now I’m equipped with tools to pull me out of the muck although I just don’t go there as often anymore.  Nonetheless, my tools are at the ready, like a best friend throwing me a life-line if I notice I’ve dipped my toe into old, familiar yuk.  Get the fuck out of the yuk.

Last Saturday’s Create Your Sacred Life On Purpose workshop was all about sharing those tools.  The participants did the work to release the old, energize the new, and left with tools to notice the yuk, choose the clear path, play big and manifest their heart’s desires! To witness transformation in my students leaves me feeling like I’m on the right track…I’m spreading namaste and leading my sacred life on purpose! Yes!

Some reviews left by my amazing students:

Amazing teacher!
I love Amelia’s flow classes! She makes it challenging and fun and when I’m done I feel relaxed but energized. Her spiritual guidance during classes opens up new ways of thinking for me. I appreciate her so much!
– Mary

Amelia’s the Best!
Amelia is an excellent teacher. Very upbeat, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. She is an inspiration as she is so healthy and strong.
– Karen

Excellent, knowledgeable, professional
I know Amelia, as she has taught me yoga from many aspects..physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Not only does she have a grand grasp of the physicality of yoga and the body, but she’s very spiritual herself, thus weaves spirit into her teaching seamlessly. She’s trained in a strong style of Baron Baptiste and continues to study and teach with enthusiasm. Her latest workshop in 2017 was fabulous and effective! I highly recommend Amelia!
– Carolyn

Practicing with Amelia has made me a better yoga student and more importantly, a yogi in tune with her soul and truth. I’m so grateful to have her as a guide along my path, making sure I have the tools to keep my compass pointing true.
– Jamie

Stay tuned for my next workshop.  

Spread your love and light!

Yogamama Meels
Namaste. May all beings be happy and free.  May all beings be without suffering.

CREATE YOUR SACRED LIFE ON PURPOSE – A NEW YEAR’S WORKSHOP TO GET YOUR LIFE ON TRACK!

purple-rainI’m EXCITED to offer another workshop to lead you down the path of self-discovery to create your sacred life! “Sacred” in the sense that your experience of life holds personal meaning, reverence, and importance to you; that you move through life in a way that your actions and your words are intentional and authentic; that there is no doubt that what you offer this world is presented with your personal, sacred stamp. 
 I always appreciate doing this work myself because I can find myself distracted, derailed by my life’s obligations, or I simply lose sight of my drishti, my point of focus.  When I lose my drishti, I find myself making decisions and choosing behaviors which feel messy and stressful…I lose connection to my “true north.”
This workshop will support your desire to recalibrate your inner compass and take aim towards your goals, dreams and desires. If you don’t know where you are right now, and you don’t know where you want to go, it can leave you feeling lost, aimless, and flailing…and frankly that just sucks, and can be an unsatisfying way of living. Adding focus and clarity, and direction in life offers a sense of reassured calm and can ease anxiety and depression, especially if you think “How did I get here?  Where am I going?  I’m tired of going through life feeling like a zombie. I’m tired of feeling like I’m running on a hamster wheel…getting nowhere.  I’m tired of feeling tired.”  I’ve asked myself these questions and the tools I’m offering you in this workshop give you the opportunity to experience transformation and “a-has” during the workshop and most importantly, after the workshop to keep yourself on track.
I’m also excited to offer this workshop because it provides an opportunity to ignite your creativity and fuel any projects, ideas, or “callings” you may have.  Is there an idea you’ve shelved because you just don’t know what to do with it or something you feel like you’re being pulled to do and things just aren’t quite falling into place?  Through setting aside this time to attend to your budding ideas, you will energize opportunities and possibilities for anything!
This two-hour workshop will awaken your sacred warrior, fuel your creative juices, and get you in conversation with your wise, inner teacher.  Expect some gentle yoga, meditation, and yoga nidra (yogic sleep.) Each participant will receive a journal and pen.
Please join me Saturday January 14, 2017 2-4pm at The Yoga Fusion in San Ramon http://theyogafusion.com.
Cost: $25 with advance purchase, $30 day of event. Results: PRICELESS!
Love and light,
