Aloha love,
Here we are, at the completion of another calendar year...
 
This time of year is such a perfect time for reflection back upon 
what we created with the past 12 months of our lives. 
 
Whether you are one to set goals, intentions or any other type of 
structured way to put your ideas and dreams into a written form, 
I feel one of the most powerful things we can do is acknowledge
all that you have accomplished already both inside of yourself 
and out in the world. 
 
For me, the real juicy goodness comes from acknowledging the powerful 
expansion that occurs in our hearts, minds and souls. 
 
Thoughts like, am I a more compassionate person then this time last year? 
Do I have a good relationship with my father (mother, husband, wife, boss, etc)? 
Have I been of service to others in a positive way, 
when they needed me?
 
These types of thoughts make us realize the multi dimensional 
creatures we are, and how everything affects everything. 
 
So this weekend (or right now!), take this time, to sit with yourself. 
All you need is a paper and pen and your own open heart and mind. 
 
Write 3 headings: 
 
1). What did I accomplish this year? (list EVERY LITTLE THING! you'll be suprised by all you have done, and it will boost your confidence to take the next steps)
 
2). Which relationships did I invest time to cultivate, strengthen &/or heal this year?
 
And then consider:
 
3). What am I most inspired to create with the next 12 months? 
 
Every new year (and every day actually) 
we get to start brand new, with a whole new set of paint brushes
and a clean canvas to create the landscape of our heart's desires and dreams. 
 
*Create (Visualize)- What does your heart & soul desire to create in 2012? 
 
*Partner (Give)- Who can you partner with to gain (and give) the support 
necessary to take your ideas to the next level and manifest into the material world?
 
*Opportunities (Receive)- What opportunities are appearing for you now,
that may be in alignment for you to simply open the door
and let in the blessings you've been calling in?
 
*Let go (allow)- What must you let go of, that is no longer serving you, 
that will allow your life to be more 'In the Flow?'
(ie - pride, ego, being right, etc)
 
And last but not least, 
 
*Transform (Become)- What areas of my physical health must I address immediately, 
since I understand that my physical health and condition is often
a map of my mental, emotional and spiritual self expressing itself through 
my physical body. It may take some time, but now is the best time to begin!
 
These questions should keep you busy for a little while :)
 
It is my humble desire to help you in any way I can. 
I have created a few new opportunities for us to connect,
if you wish to take our relationship a bit deeper. 
 
Live Video Coaching!

We can now do online skype coaching here on my friends new website, 
check it out and sign up if you are ready to meet me online. There are several categories 
to select from, topics include: yoga, nutrition, guided meditation, career coaching for
yoga teachers and health professionals, and more :)
 
 
We're adding a Pranashama YTT in Miami Beach, USA!
photo
 
If you didn't know yet, I have relocated back to Miami Beach, FL to live.
After almost 2 years in LA, I missed my warm aqua blue ocean,
clean air to breath and amazing sunshine. They don't call Miami
"Magic City" for no reason! It is truly wonderful here :)

I can't wait to share this place with you!

 
I've been scouting for locations to host a training,
and have found a perfect one!
 
This March (dates tba asap) I will host a 7-14 day 
YTT program, which you can earn up to 100 hours toward
your yoga teacher training certification in the gorgeous Miami Beach :)
 
If you are interested in learning about this, there will be a limited 
number of spots available and pre-registration must be made by Feb. 1, 2012.. 
so post on facebook or email me directly if you would like to be put on the 
waiting list for that training.  And stay tuned for more details.

The contest is going great. We have over 30 entries now, and growing.

(Dashama near Kuta Beach, Bali 2011)

 
Aloha my love, I am writing you from Ananda Resort, overlooking the rice fields & monkey jungle 
with the warm sunshine and breezes melting my heart more each day.
 
This journey has been far more profound than any of us had ever expected, 
as the entire group has been experiencing the deep transformational 
Pranashama Yoga program.
 
For the first week, each day was dedicated to one of the major energy centers, 
as we dove in deep into our chakras to discover who and what we truly are creating in our lives. 
 
Life long friendships are being formed, through the hours of laughing, crying, anger, bliss and a full spectrum of emotions have been arising for our group as we journey toward a more expanded state of living and being.
 
The food has been nothing short of DELICIOUS!
 
Far exceeding my expectations, we discovered raw, vegan, healthy, 
seafood and many other options available at local restraunts in Ubud, to nourish our bodies and souls in alignment with the 3 Stage Energy Detox Diet plan. :) Yay!
 
Superfood smoothies each day for lunch has been the winning selection 
to keep our energy levels high to practice yoga all day every day, (we've been starting at 7am!)
 
The group's favorite has been the chocolate butterfly... I will post some of these amazing 
recipes in the 30dayyogachallenge.com members area asap when I get some time :)

30DYC Continues...
 
For everyone who is practing along with us from home to experience this 30DYC Lifestyle transformation, WE ARE SENDING YOU OUR LOVE!
 
There is still time to register and join in with the community from your home, 
you can CLICK HERE to see both options and register now.
I was delighted to hear that our $1,000 winner from 30DYC early this year, is considering getting certified to teach yoga now as well. This is the life shifting that happens all the time with these programs. It is so beautiful to witness
someone become inspired and sharing information that can create health and happiness for others in the world.
Thank you for being the change we wish to see in the world.
 
The Highlight of our Journey so Far...
 
I will post the photos and videos from the life shifting experience we had at 
the orphanage this week, as we were surprised to discover the entire group of children (30 in total) was both deaf and mute and for many of them, they were able to hear for the first time, when we played the high pitch healing sound of my Tibetan Singing bowl with the kids!! It was unreal and magical. 
 
We also played ball with the boys at the orphanage and yoga, dance and much more.
So far, it was the highlight of our trip for many of the Pranashama Yoga students. 
 
Follow Us...
 
I have been keeping some updates on facebook and twitter, so you can follow us there. 
We also have a group page, but I have to admit we've been having so much fun immersed here, we haven't been updating the pages as much as we'd planned! ;)
 
I wanted to post some videos while we are here, but the internet connection is slow... 
I will post them when I get back to the USA.. 
 
I have hours of footage already and only 1/3 through this journey of a lifetime. 
 
I am also going to be making the decision to reserve Ananda Resort to host a Pranashama Yoga Training Retreat next summer, so if you are seriously, or casually considering joining us in the future, post on facebook or send an email and let us know you'll be joining us next year.
 
Today we travel up to the 2nd leg of our journey, at Mimpi Resort, 
located on the ocean with natural hot springs on the property and home of some of the 
best snorkeling and diving locations in the world!
18 days to go!
Sending you love and blessings all ways,
Love, Light and Namaste
Dashama

Cleansing, Yoga & The Fountain of Youth

"Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first.
Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.
Follow your passion, and success will follow you."
-- Arthur Buddhold
 

I hope you followed some of the important cleansing suggestions I mentioned in our newsletter last week. I sure did! I was following stage 3 of the 30DYC diet plan this week and consuming 1-2 green smoothies each day. Like always, it was a fantastic experience!
 
What did I feel?
 
*Better digestion,
*Cleansed digestive track,
*Improved energy levels
*Decrease in body fat
*and some nasal congestion that I was experiencing completely cleared up in a matter of days. 
 
It's a powerful practice and habit to create, to cleanse one week out of each month. 
 
I've been doing it for years and I encourage all my clients, students and people who follow my programs to join us in this routine. It will only serve you in the long run, with great health. 
 
I've heard so many times people ask me, "wow! how old are you Dashama?" and when I tell them, they are almost always shocked. The reason for this is simple: they say I look about 5-10 years younger then I am. In fact, I had my metabolic age tested and the tests confirmed this~ it said I am physically the age of 14! That takes into account how the organs and inner systems are functioning, bone density, body fat to muscle ratio, etc. 
 
I attribute my youthful appearance and vitality in large part to my diet, yoga and exercise practices. 
When you let go of stress, toxins and the heavy burdens that are weighing you down, years can be lifted from your face and body in a matter of moments and over night you can be transformed. (sometimes it takes a bit longer, depending upon how ready you are to let go). 
 
That is one of the motivating forces that has kept me sharing this information for years. 
I see the benefits in my own life, I hear the success stories from people around the world who follow this lifestyle and I am always inspired by the break throughs people experience when they integrate some of these simple techniques and habits into daily living. 
 
Bikini Season is Just 11 weeks away!
 
With just 11 weeks until bikini season officially begins, NOW is the perfect time to begin the 30DYC Renew You program! This is the most comprehensive system I've ever released. If you haven't tried it yet, join hundreds of others who are currently participating and enroll to get the support of the community and me on your team. 

TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More
 
And on this team the winning formula is: You + 30DYC = Healthy, Happy, Habits
 
For a limited time, you will receive the 6 -30DYC DVDs FREE with the program when you order by April 1. 
 

What's New? 
 
This week I am focused on creating the Yoga Teacher Training manual for our program in Bali. 
I am including over 7 sequences and 200 poses in the manual, all from the photos we shot 2 weeks ago for the Journey to Joyful expanded edition that will be released in September for National Yoga Month. 
 
The sequences are the same ones I teach at the live events and that we will be practicing in Bali every morning and afternoon. Each is geared toward strengthening, stretching, balancing, healing and creating harmony in the body, mind and soul. 
 
I am also teaching several of these sequences in Canada for the Whistler Yoga Conference, coming up in May. 
If you are able to join us, that promises to be an amazing event in one of the most beautiful places in North America, 
Whistler BC is known for its majestic snow capped mountains and pristine natural surroundings. 
 
Go to their website to register and use my name 'Dashama' to receive 10% off your ticket for the entire weekend. 

 

 

 
Blessings to your success and happiness.
Have a beautiful day!
Love, Light and Namaste, 
Dashama
