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…

The Alchemy of Yoga Program: Key Questions Answered

4 KEY QUESTIONS I GET ASKED ABOUT ALCHEMY PROGRAM: 1. What Kind of Yoga do we Teach?

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….

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:…

Why Fake It? It’s Okay To Not Have Your Sh*t Together

By Silvia Mordini In school, you can try to fake knowing more than you do but when it comes time for the test the truth comes out by way of your grade. In bed you can try to fake feeling more than you do, even orgasm, but when it comes down to it you’re only fooling yourself if you think your partner can’t tell. In teaching yoga, you can show up, pretending to be “ultra spiritual” ala JP Sears and act the part of a yoga teacher, even faking happiness and serenity, but eventually one of two things will happen to you: 1. You’ll fall apart or give up from the exhaustion of pretending 2. Your students will call you out as being a Poser. You can’t keep faking you…

The Importance of Community in Yoga

by Silvia Mordini Truth: My favorite part of yoga is community. The coming together of humans of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, ages, interests to share the same experience. That’s why I go back everyday as a teacher and as a student. And science tells us that being in a healthy community is good for us. The vibration of positive minded people raises our vibrational frequency. This shared joy elevates our spirits and is talked about in Yoga Sutra Chapter 2.33 Pratipaksha Bhavana. Essentially the sutras spell out that if we are imbalanced mentally, physically, or emotionally then we are not living our true nature which is joy. Therefore engaging with others trying to think happy thoughts helps us create happy thoughts as well. Positive energy creates and attracts more positive…

How To NOT Pick A Yoga Teacher Training

by Silvia Mordini What if I said to you that I wanted to get eye surgery? Lasik, to be precise. What advice would you have for me? Here’s what I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t say to me: Find the Cheapest doctor possible. Find the Cheapest facility (hospital) possible. Find the least qualified doctor possible. Find the newest doctor possible. Just go where it’s closest. Do it yourself. Read how to do it online. Then why oh why would you choose a Personal Development Program such as a Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) impacting your Soul and Spirit in this manner? Sort of like Lasik surgery, this is not one of those times to bargain shop and cheap it out. Make a decision based key criteria about the school and be honest…
