Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training is really Jedi training for the Superhero inside all of us! It is wholeheartedly dedicated to the art of self-discovery. Think of this as Happiness Training.
“Happiness is first of all, feeling understood.” – Thich Nhat Hahn
Who am I to you? My teaching intention is to serve you as a compassionate mentor who inspires honest self-inquiry and ultimate transformation. This goes way beyond just teaching, mentoring means I have the opportunity to hold space for your growth now and forever. This is an intimate experience where I want you to feel understood (for some of us for the very first time).
“It is not enlightenment we need; it is intimacy. It is not positive thinking or awareness we need, but intimacy. Intimacy gives us these.” – Mark Whitwell
In our intimate Kula, community of the heart – an extended family, of no more than 18 students we can delve into the deepest study of who we are so we can live our happiness in a big way. This is the ultimate adventure. A Hero’s Journey.
This is the part where you find out who you are.
This will be an adventure that will both challenge and encourage you to embrace your potential and playfully make your super hero powers come alive. More than having you master some yoga poses, I want to see you become more self-aware and self-confident. So, consider this in-depth self-study program as a YES to one of the ultimate adventures of your life! Join me to feel more empowered to love your life!
With peace in all ways,
~Silvia~ Alchemy of Yoga

It offers you a unique opportunity to make a deep commitment to learning more about yourself. The entire Alchemy of Yoga alumni community offer you honest, loving support from day one as we pride ourselves on being completely inclusive. This program is a safe haven: a nurturing sanctuary to engage in open minded self-exploration. We are devoted to offering you an atmosphere in which freedom of expression, creativity and passion for life are "totally" encouraged! Our program covers the foundations of the 8 limbed path of Yoga and how to effectively teach using your most authentic voice. The emphasis will be about upgrading your Self relationship, and teaching to the heart of the student in a dynamic yet unpretentious way through a marriage of creative vinyasa techniques, energetics, disciplined asana & philosophy. This is yoga as a life-long truthful celebration of ourselves, our students and our world. This program requires a significant, honest commitment of time & energy.
Program is ideal for those working regular weekday job schedules. There are 4 phases to the program, which include all aspects of Teaching Techniques, Teaching Methodology, Philosophy, Ethics, Anatomy and Student Teaching.

WHY THIS PROGRAM CHANGES YOUR LIFE:
"Yoga believes in transforming the individual before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to happen outside should happen within. If you walk in peace and express that peace in your very life, others will see you and learn something." - Sri Swami Satchidananda
Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for 200 hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives & expanding their consciousness into radical authenticity. The result is something beyond words. It is, as best as I can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga at its best. Chapter 2 verse 1 of the Yoga Sutras sets forth how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works. "Tapas svadhyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga." Translated to mean that yoga helps us transform ourselves on three levels:
1. Physical Alchemy - Tapas helps us ignite the changes we want to make in our lives. It is about the getting fired up and passionate. Literally it means heating the body through moving and breathing in the vinyasa
2. Mental Alchemy - Svadhaya. While we are following the discipline of tapas and engaging in physical practice to help move our stuck energy we are watching ourselves. In yoga we study the self to learn about the self. Here the mental alchemy is through self-observation. We witness what is going on in our thoughts, what are we thinking.
3. Spiritual Alchemy - ishvara pranidahana. As we are doing and watching we let go of the ego of judgment. We move beyond wanting life to be different and begin to feel the surrender that allows what is being offered to mix together. We practice ishvara pranidhana as we trust the universal intelligence that hugs us from all directions to know what it's doing. And once we find this trust we begin to believe that beauty and goodness are within us flowing nonstop and there is no reason to stop this flow for its natural current is to align with the current of grace that is everywhere outisde us. Beauty becomes our way of life. Happiness becomes our natural alchemy.
You see when you get together in a Teacher Training Tribe (aka Alchemy of Yoga) we are all like the Alchemist in his/her laboratory mixing ingredients. For us as yogis our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, our poses, our breath, our thoughts and the mixing it all together creates a different result every time. A Teacher Training Program changes your life. You wake up to the power you have to go into the laboratory of your life experience and mix the potions you want to create your best life going forward!
We believe that the Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training Program sparks the fire of transformation in everyone. Apply today! Namaskaram!
Yoga has been a faithful companion since I was run over by a car as a pedestrian over 12 years ago. This life changing event brought yoga into my life as part of my recovery. My body and spirit were transformed by this experience and I became dedicated to living life more fully since that fateful event. My loving Anusara inspired Vinyasa Flow teaching style is influenced by over 11 years of study of Hatha yoga and I am gratefully committed to my primary teachers: Shiva Rea, John Friend and to all of my students.
I am deeply honored to serve and mentor teacher trainees for a 5th year. I hope your participation in this program helps you meet life's challenges with bold courage and that through yoga you learn to explore yourself more deeply so you can see the beauty, creativity & strength within.
While in the corporate world, I worked for both Inc 500 and Fortune 500 companies as a Director and have 15 years experience specializing in Adult Training & Development. With over 6,500 hours of yoga teaching experience and a personal commitment to life long learning I attend 1-2 teacher trainings per year myself. I hope you join me for the best adventure of your life!
