Key Question: What Kind of Yoga do we Teach in Alchemy of Yoga Program?

In learning to teach yoga there is a delicate balance between consistency and creativity. One the greatest challenges we face as teachers is adapting Yoga to make it accessible for everyone in our class. The practice we offer students is for THEM, and about them as an act of service. Therefore in Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training what I offer is our Alchemy Fundamental Series of 3 Class Plans based in Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Alchemy with supporting materials and inspirations to help your teaching be more consistent and comprehensive. This allows YOU to have both form and formlessness. It is not meant to be overly prescriptive, quite the contrary. These lesson plans hold space for you as a NEW Teacher to immerse yourself into the world of teaching with…

What is your emotional and mental health worth?

Super Namaste! Silvia here, Alchemy of Yoga Founder. Let’s get really real for a moment. What’s your emotional and mental health worth to you? If you had to put a dollar figure on this. What would it be? Of all the things you invest time and money in where are YOU on that list? Sadly, for most of us we prioritize the health and well-being of our car as more important than ourselves. That doesn’t make sense to me. Does it to you? As always I’m going to tell you the truth. This is not a rehearsal for a better life. THIS IS IT. You are not in a trial run. You’re not going to be able to trade in your body for a newer model. This one is it….

What do we do at the Alchemy of Yoga School? Take a peek at our program!

What Kind of Yoga do we Teach? We prepare students to teach inteligent vinyasa mindfully sequenced with an empahsis on breath, meditation, poses and a philosophical theme, which serves as the intention of the class. We are not just teachers of poses, we are inspiration leaders. We are Happiness Ambassadors who together are committed to Teach Peace. One of the parts of this program we love so much are the daily Practice Teaching Sessions which are dedicated to yoga asana + technique as part of the Alchemy of Yoga: Tapas Class Plan. These sessions are designed to give you opportunities to hone your authentic voice, have some fun and receive feedback from your loving kula as you teach one another. These sessions will culminate in a final “Teach Out” session…

Find Compassion for All Yogis

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” Dalai Lama I’ve practiced yoga for over 15 years. I’ve taught more than 12,000 hours and since my very first teacher training, my goal has always been to teach what I practice and to practice what I teach. Through the years of practicing with different teachers, it has become clear to me that creating a compassionate yoga community requires that we take responsibility for ourselves. After all, our actions, thoughts and words impact the connections we have with those around us: just as positive energy creates more positive energy, the inverse is also true. Our bigger American Yoga Kula is strong in love but we diminish our power by publicly degrading other styles…

Love Yo’ Self Written by Ferrah Seifert

Love Yo’ Self Written by Ferrah Seifert  wwww.ferrahchino.com @Ferrahchinoyoga  “Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.” – Lao Tzu To be honest, self-acceptance doesn’t always come easy for me. I grew up in an 80% white school, where I was not the typical blonde that received a ton of attention. Since this was pre J-Lo and Kim K, I constantly questioned my appeal as a woman with darker features. I can recall entering Jr. High with five horribly expensive Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch shirts that I would wear on each day of the week. I was constantly seeking approval from outside sources hoping that…

Be in LOVE with Yourself

As a teacher, what if you let me be your Guide, your Sister, your Mentor? If you did, I would say to you, STOP SEEKING IMPROVEMENT. Be in LOVE with yourself as you ARE. Become more intimate with your OWN reality And all I ask is that you show up, ready to do the work of spirit and dive deep into your self. And from there be in love with your LIFE!

5 WAYS TO INSPIRE PEACE TODAY

Take 11 minutes to recite a peace mantra, sing a peace chant, pray, meditate on peace. (My first peace mantra I learned on Sunday mornings growing up: “Peace be with you.”) – I am at Peace. Peace surrounds me. I am Peace. There shall be peace. – I breathe in peace. I breathe out peace. – Om Mani Padme Om – Om Namo Narayana Change your password to something including the word Peace. Every week you use your passwords hundreds of times, make each time count as a reminder for PEACE. Every time you go to Starbucks or any coffee shop and they ask you the name to write on the cup ask them to write the word “Peace.” Walk around drinking peace, showing the world you care about peace. Surround yourself with…

Do you adore yourself?

Your Daily #HappinessRx: Please bring your palms together in namaste and with an inward focus toward our own hearts breath deeply. As you close your eyes you turn into the darkness to see that inner light within the untouched place known as maja. It is a place unblemished by sadness or meanness or anger. It is the seat of wisdom known as our spiritual heart. The yogis believe that each of us replicates the world at large, embodying “rivers, seas, mountains, fields…stars and planets…the sun and moon” (Shiva Samhita, II.1-3). The outer sun, they asserted, is in reality a token of our own “inner sun,” which corresponds to our subtle, or spiritual, heart. So, when we practice Surya Namaskar, which is a humble adoration of the insight of the self…
