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…

Feed Your Passion and Find Your Purpose

By Silvia Mordini Are you doing things because you love to do them, or because you feel like you have to do them? What percentage of the time would you say? If you are spending more of your time doing stuff because you feel like you have to instead of wanting to, then this is a simple formula for misery. “The purpose of life is a life with purpose.” -The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari. It’s easy to get caught up living life the way other people want you to, thereby losing your purpose for living. When that happens, we also lose our passion. Fundamentally, we are wired to have passion for our purpose. It’s no surprise that what fires us up is aligned with that which fulfills us. JOURNALING:…

Stamp Your Passion Passport

Do you have a passport? Lucky if you say yes because you’d be in the minority of Americans. Given the size of our population only 35% of Americans can currently travel to another country. In this year of Radical expansion perhaps the first, most inspired thing we can do is give ourselves permission to get a passport. From there The Art of Adventure begins as you commit to using your passport and start traveling. From my experience as a life-long adventure junkie (or spiritual adventurer), being born in Ecuador, raised traveling around the world, spending summers in Europe with my Italian Father, I see travel as an important form of yoga. It is the yoga of experiencing the world, like Shri Krishna Pattabhi Jois said, “Yoga is 99% practice, 1%…

Give Yourself A New Kind Of Time Out

We all need to take a time out. Every single one of us. A retreat is just that, a retreat from the daily grind in order to get clear on what you like about your life and what could be working better, or realizing those things you’ve outgrown. And some retreats include way more than just yoga such as life coaching exercises where you’ll learn practical tools to apply to your life right away while others include off the mat fun like surfing, kayaking, hiking and more. A Yoga Retreat is the perfect time in a beautiful place to do this mental detox.Just like we have to clean out our closets now and again (whether we want to or not) we need to take time to mentally declutter as well.It…

5 Things (that are not things) To Bring On A Yoga Retreat

As you prepare for your upcoming Yoga Retreat, put down your packing list for a moment. What’s equally as important as having the right gear and clothing for your trip are these five things, that aren’t quite “things.” 1. Willingness to let go of control. If you’re an independent, Type A personality, this could be a tough one for you. Being in a new place with unfamiliar food, a different schedule, and new people to meet can be uncomfortable at first. Your retreat guides know where your next meal is coming from and where you’ll sleep that night, so you don’t have to. 2. A sense of humor. Being able to laugh at yourself and accept that your yoga practice and your life aren’t always going to be graceful and…

A Traditional Balinese Dinner!

One of our favorites evenings throughout training is visiting Agung’s ancestral home to learn about the meaning behind the layout and overall design of a traditional Balinese home. You’ll also learn how to make traditional Balinese offerings! We’ll enjoy an incredibly generous dinner buffet with a private traditional Balinese dance performance – a dance-drama that represent stories expressed through elegant movements detailed all the way into the gestures of eyes, fingers, head and hands. These mudras are learned early as Balinese children are taught to dance with their hands even before they can walk! In December 2015 UNESCO recognized 3 forms of Balinese Dance as “intangible cultural heritage.” This is sacred moving meditation at its finest.In this dance tradition the practice is an offering to ask protection from the gods and…
