IMG_2774Alchemy of Yoga: Whole-Heartedly Devoted to the Art of Self-Study

Alchemy of Yoga is unique from other teacher training programs in that it goes way beyond mastering yoga poses. While you will learn a great deal about asana, it is truly a journey in self-discovery.

The role of Silvia Mordini and the rest of the Alchemy of Yoga team is to provide the inspiration into a journey of self-inquiry and hold space for your growth in a way that is true to your authenticity before, during, and after teacher training.
