What recent graduates of Alchemy of Yoga 200-hour teacher training are saying:
I cannot say enough good things about the Alchemy of Yoga 200 Hr Teacher Training! I came to the program with very tangible, concrete goals – to finally get my crow pose, to learn how to breathe during yoga and to become more flexible. Oh, and of course, to receive my 200 RYT certification.
I left with so much more! I left with a better sense of self and an understanding that how I see myself is how the world sees me, so it’s important that I constantly work to love myself and seek and build self-confidence. I learned that I have everything I need to be successful in life, whether that means as a teacher, as a student, as a business owner, friend, partner, etc. Silvia is incredibly knowledgeable and beyond generous with that knowledge. She teaches with love and understanding. She guides her students to explore who they are, to work through the shadows and to find the light within.
I was astounded at her ability to teach a 200 hr training all by herself – that’s 200 hours of content, instruction, guidance and mentoring. It’s almost as if she’s super human. The Alchemy of Yoga team is so loving and supportive and will do anything to help their students achieve their goals and beyond. They share so much content and inspiration along the way. They are a crucial element to the strength of this program. I came to the program with tangible goals but I left with a whole new perspective and appreciation for yoga and for myself. Thank you, alchemy of yoga!!
I entered teacher training just hoping to deepen my practice but the reality is I graduated as a whole new me. This was an adventure that pushed, challenged and encouraged me to grow. In a matter of months I became more self-aware and self-confident than any time in my life. I wasn’t surrounded by a group of students that wanted to perfect their asanas. I joined a Kula (a community of the heart), an extended family that offered unconditional support and inspiration. I am grateful to Silvia Mordini for the professional, organized and extremely informative yoga training, but I am eternally indebted to Silvia for creating a safe space for growth and helping open my eyes to my potential!
One of the best things I have ever done for myself was take the Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training. It was life changing in many ways. Not only did I get incredible teaching from one of the best yoga instructors in the industry but I also became a part of a wonderful kula that was also so much a part of my growth and learning. If you have the chance to train with Silvia Mordinin, you will be amazed – she is the best of the best. I’m blown away every time I take one of her classes and to be able to take her training was amazing. Taking this training is something I am very grateful for and proud of. If you have the chance – take it!
Two words to describe the Alchemy Yoga program… Beautifully Centered. I have never felt so supported, beautiful, grounded, or inspired in my life. The Alchemy program is designed to help you acquire the knowledge needed not just to teach yoga, but to really live yoga. This program goes far far beyond the poses, it steams into who you are as a person and how to be the most authentic you. Once you start to fold back the layers of who you are, then the real teaching in this program beings. I have never felt so safe in being who I am before. Silvia’s wisdom and ridiculous sense of play and humor keeps things fun and airy. This program has instilled in me the confidence I need to be a great yoga teacher. That confidence doesn’t come mastering all the poses but from being your most authentic you which you learn is the most important part of being a great teacher. I am more than thankful for this training. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I would hands down recommend the Alchemy Yoga training to anyone who is interested in truly and honestly teaching yoga!
Do you believe in magic? Well welcome :)! This training will help you find your magic. While diving deep into your journey of self. Be prepared to find yourself and leave behind the old you. I was trained in Bali and what a unique magical experience. Truly blessed for Alchemy of Yoga. A huge part to discovering my divinity and who I truly am.
The way of life and love that I studied at Total Body Yoga, under the brilliant and inspiring tutelage of the TBY staff helped my physical practice grow by leaps and bounds (and headstands and arm balances). But the real treasure I unearthed is the philosophy, teaching methodology, meditation, pranayama, and my own and other’s inner divine. I would recommend the teacher training program at TBY to anyone who wants to teach or deeply delve into the rewarding practice of yoga. Thank you for everything.
I still believe to this day that doing the 200 hour yoga teacher training March of 2011 was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Silvia’s program is unlike any other that I have heard of in that she spends an incredible amount of time and energy on helping her students learn more about themselves through the process of yoga, to then become the best and most authentic teachers they can be. I still practice with Silvia on a weekly basis, and am amazed at how she constantly brings in something new every time. As someone who loves to learn and is always trying to grow, I appreciate this highly creative quality in any teacher. I strongly recommend Silvia as a teacher for anyone who is wanting to learn more about yoga beyond the poses, and for anyone who is on a path toward self-discovery.
Silvia Mordini is a teacher of teachers, and a wonderful mentor who compassionately evokes self-inquiry and transformation. Without a doubt, Silvia’s friendship and mentorship have helped to shape my path to service, adventure, and stepping outwards of my bounds and into a world wide open.
I want to thank you for opening this whole new world for me. Through your knowledge, energy, and warmth, I was able to “Go Deeper” into myself. I never knew I had the courage to face the “boxes” that had been closed and locked up for such a long time. I know now I’m brave enough to face anything and I am forever grateful for that.
Calling Alchemy of Yoga a yoga teacher training program does not do it justice. My three weeks in Costa Rica with Silvia and the Alchemy tribe and then the time after working on my practicum gave me a loving space and guidance to delve deep to truly find myself and my purpose. As a result of the in-depth study, I am more confident, more connected and more able to flow peacefully with the waves of life. I also developed some of the deepest and most profound friendships with members of my beautiful Kula, lifelong sisters and brother that support and love with so much heart. To say that Alchemy of Yoga is just a teacher training program does not even skim the surface of it. Yes, I came out of the program a yoga teacher, and yes I can teach yoga now, but more than that I can truly say that I live my yoga each day now (and have one seriously magical tribe that supports me in that path). Thank you Silvia for truly teaching me yoga!
Amazing teachers who live and teach with integrity, beyond the thorough material and teaching, smaller groups and a few extra days would have been nice, the preparation, follow up, and program are amazing and I feel confident as a teacher after having the good fortune to study with Emily and Silvia. Amazing location and service and the program as a whole was very organized. 108 bows of gratitude.
Not only did Alchemy of Yoga do a phenomenal job of introducing me to the history and study of yoga as well as the skills and information required to actually teach, but the program also provided me with an immersive understanding of Bali’s deep, spiritual roots and traditions- all of which amplified my understanding of how yoga’s teachings factor into daily life and cultures all over.
