Yokibics

 

A few months ago, I had the serendipitous joy of meeting a woman who embodies bliss. Gael Chiarella Alba RYT – HYT – describes herself as an “author, speaker, spoken word artist, happy camper, founder of Yokibics.” I had taken a class at a new yoga studio in my area and was immediately drawn to her.

Gael describes Yokibics as: “yoking the powers of body mind spirit while directing energy into action.”

The name came to her in meditation. “You can be amazed what power lies in the simple act of going within and listening. I saw the name in my mind’s eye as a banner fluttering behind a small plane in the sky. I demonstrated my trust in this offering of the Universe by trademarking it and dedicating my career to it. I knew it held the answer to my hearts calling at a time when I was searching for my way in life, and trying to find my voice – my own unique stamp. It embodied the essence of the gift I could give to the world. Whew! Knowing your gift spells relief!! That was in 1984. Delivering it to the world…well that’s a life journey that continues to this day, and begins anew again and again and again in so many ways.”

She adds: “Yokibics rests on a foundation of the Eight Limbs of Yoga, a proper integration of the Seven Chakra gifts inherent in human energy anatomy, and in the way we learn to express circular movement through the art of Aikido. The Yokibics Way integrates the emotional territory, language patterns, interpersonal relationships and gifts of genius inherent within each of the chakras. The result is an increase in your foundation pyramid PQ (physical intelligence) EQ (emotional intelligence) and IQ (the demonstration of your psychological intelligence.)”

Passion is such a big buzz word and Gael had plenty to offer on that topic.I think THE most important question a person can consider in LIFE is the question of passion! What are YOU passionate about? Why are you here?”

“When I ask that of myself, I know I am most passionate about growing into myself – fulfilling my potential – feeling excited about life and the awesome unfolding of this adventure, struggle and all. I am passionate about purpose, about discovering why we are here, making very sure I am listening to the subtle direction life sends.

I am passionate about ENERGY! My bodymindspirit, and yours, and how it all works. I am passionate about truth and the important willingness to look into the shadow. I am passionate about our children and the legacy we must leave for them, about travel, caring, touch, the word “yes!” and exploring the unknown… knowing always that life is good!”

She has advice to share for people who are looking their own passion.Do stuff that scares you – in a good way! I was scared of heights so I took up rock climbing. I always wondered if I had the stamina to really (really) take it to the limit so I took up mountaineering at the age of 43 summiting fourteener’s for fun. I was truly uncomfortable speaking in front of a group so I took up public speaking. You get it. And if you are going to fail, you might as well do it spectacularly! No one can fail quite like you can. Own it and be proud! Then get back up on the horse.”
