Alchemy means Transformation

al•che•my

noun \al-kəm-ė\

•the art of change, both spiritually and physically
•a power or process of transforming something ordinary into something extraordinary.

How Is Alchemy of Yoga Program Organized?

We base the program on two key influences: (1) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and (2) How the Yoga Sutras Chapter 2, Verse 1 defines the Alchemy of Yoga as transformative on three levels.

“Tapas svadhyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga.”

1. Physical Alchemy – Tapas
2. Mental Alchemy – Svadhyaya
3. Spiritual Alchemy – Ishvara Pranidahana

Alchemist MANIFESTO * Tell the TRUTH * Do LOVE * Be KIND * TRUST Yourself * Teach PEACE

Ignite Change

1. Physical Alchemy – Tapas:

To ignite the changes we want to make in our lives we must establish a solid foundation..

EARTH (1st Chakra Muladhara):

To manifest our desires we must have strong roots within ourselves.

WATER (2nd Chakra Svadhisthana):

We tap into our limitless potential to create our dreams and desires.

FIRE (3rd Chakra Manipura):

We ignite the fire of our burning desires and dreams through action.

Break Habits

2. Mental Alchemy – Svadhaya:

In yoga we study the self to learn about the self. Here the mental alchemy is through self-observation. By witnessing our thoughts we become aware of our mental patterns and the obstacles to our happiness. We journey through the heart chakra to align the love and wisdom from our hearts and communicate it out to the world, aligning our thoughts, words and actions with our truth.

AIR (4th Chakra Anahata):

Our inner wisdom becomes available to us when we open up the heart and learn to surrender to love, letting go of what is no longer in alignment with our hearts.

Self-reflection leads to
self-expression

Open Up

3. Spiritual Alchemy – Ishvara Pranidahana

5th Chakra Vishudha:

Communicating to the universe our wisdom learned from the heart with clarity and truth.


6th Chakra Ajna:

We open up through the third eye in order to sink back as the observer of our being. As we do this, all negative thoughts dissolve and we return back to stillness, happiness, and love. We surrender to the guidance of our inner wisdom and know that all the answers we seek lie within us.


7th Chakra Sahasrara:

The flow of grace all around us flows through us from an open crown chakra. We become the embodiment of the Divine, a unique expression of consciousness, dwelling in our natural alchemy of love and peace.

Break old habits.
Drop old stories.
