Financial Support

Alchemy of Yoga is whole-heartedly devoted to the art of self-study. When a yogi feels called to step into the deeper world of self-study, we never wish for finances to impede this path.

A 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training requires a significant investment on several levels — not only the financial consideration, but also the commitment of time + resources.

The investment is in yourself and it yields transformation on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual planes.

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 team is to provide the inspiration into this self-inquiry and hold space for your growth in a way that is true to your authenticity.

In the spirit of inclusivity + accessibility, we are proud to offer:

  • Various price points for our programs
  • Support for your Go Fund Me or other crowd funding efforts
  • We will write you recommendation for Yoga Alliance Scholarship
  • Limited scholarship offerings
  • Early bird discounts + special offerings on tuition

Alchemy of Yoga’s Heart Medicine Scholarship


 Students who commit to teaching yoga to underserved communities and people of all backgrounds, colors, religions, and orientations after they complete the Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training.
