How does the Alchemy of Yoga work?

It transforms us on three levels: Physical Alchemy, Spiritual Alchemy, and Mental Alchemy.Ancient Alchemists, like their Yogi counterparts, saw all of creation as composed of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. Through their meditations and explorations of these five elements, they created healing and transformative potions that unlocked many of the mysteries of the universe and therein contributed to the evolution of humankind. For us as Alchemist Yogis, our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, poses, breath, and thoughts. Mixing it all together changes your life. Learn More at!

ABOUT CATALINA SILVIA MORDINI: Teacher of Teachers, Happiness Activist, Love Alchemist

I am a Lightworker, Spiritual Teacher, Transformation Mentor, CEO, and internationally recognized Author and Presenter. Before becoming a serial Yogapreneur, I was a Director for an international Fortune 100 professional services company. Most importantly I am a life long Love Alchemist. 

For over 15 years, with more than 12,000 hours of teaching experience through my writings, in person seminars, online courses, podcast and international retreats and trainings I inspire people around the world to get unstuck from their pain and up level their (spiritual) happiness. I guarantee results fast. 

What does that mean? 

I wake people up to the power of change and their ability to choose to be happy, or happier in order to love themselves, love their day, love their lives! 

I am an iinternationally recognized Motivational Speaker and Mindfulness Teacher at conferences worldwide. You can’t help but leave spiritually uplifted! My enthusiasm is contagious. 

My life has been both a warning and an example

My life story and radical transcendence serves as a catalyst for clients to save time healing and removing what holds them back because I personally know it’s possible to transform your trauma to dharma and transmute your drama to dreams. Our greatest successes come from our messes. 

I was born in Ecuador. My Father is Italian, my mother is Ecuadorian and my immediate family is from Brazil, Philippines, and Puerto Rico. Because my life is like the United Nations I developed a sense of global citizenship early on. This is also why I love everybody.

Without apology I believe in magic because my life is a miracle. Some days I can barely believe all that I have recovered from, like getting run over by a car in the United States, the TBI from a life threatening cycling accident in Italy and an awful scooter accident in Indonesia that I somehow walked away from. As well as saving myself from an abusive marriage. I have faced down NDE (near death experience) and slayed the PTSD and panic attacks that followed the traumas with a plant based diet, meditation and only holistic cures and modalities. 

That’s also why I think everyone deserves more than a second chance. They deserve at least a third chance.

In fact the title of one of my books is “A Third Chance.”

If you want to know me, then read me. You’ll find hundreds of my published writings about lifestyle, spirituality & wellness read by thousands all over the world as seen in Gaia, Mindbodygreen (USA), Mantra Wellness Magazine, Elephant Journal (USA), DO YOU (Hong Kong), Good Men Project, Yogi Times, Wanderlust (USA), Daily Cup of Yoga (USA), and I’m a wellness expert as seen in Psychology Today, HuffPost, Medium and more. 

What you’ll learn from me is “Authenticity and joyful self-confidence in living YOUR dharma, passion with purpose.”

I follow the sun for an endless summer switching between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres where you’ll find me in Bali and Australia most of the year. I’m living a laptop lifestyle as a storyteller inspiring happiness, global awareness, and joyful living in everyone I meet.

For those of you that like numbers:

  • I have more than 12,000 hours of Yoga Teaching experience. 
  • I’ve taught for over 15 years.
  • I founded and owned Total Body Yoga Studio, Chicagoland USA with over 9,000 students for 10 years.
  • 15 years ago I founded a Yoga School through Yoga Alliance to teach YOU how to say YES to being yourself, I named it Alchemy of Yoga.
  • I have graduated 29 classes of Alchemist Alumni from over 25 countries worldwide.
  • In 2009 I founded Alchemy Tours, an International Yoga Retreat company specializing in Personal Development.
  • Before becoming a serial Yogapreneur, I was a Director for an international Fortune 100 professional services.
  • I’ve been in 1 hit and run as a pedestrian, 1 life threatening cycling accident, 1 radical scooter accident for a total of two NDE (near death experiences).
  • I’ve had 2 TBI’s I am a proud thriver not just a survivor.


My focus is on bringing more fun to yoga with the hope that how we practice our yoga becomes how we live our life. As an Experienced Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and a lifelong singer, dancer, poet and adventurer, my style of yoga is Bhakti infused Alignment based Vinyasa flow. I’ve been teaching yoga for over 15 years. I have a 13 year Human Resource career and I am a successful serial Yogapreneur. I owned 2 Yoga Studios for 10 years with over 9,000 students, founded Alchemy Tours, a Spiritual Adventure company and developed the 15 year old international Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training School with 30 graduating classes of Love Alchemists from over 25 countries worldwide. Most importantly I’ve been a dedicated student of yoga since being in a hit and run and experiencing the “alchemy of yoga” to recover physically and emotionally. This life changing accident transformed my mind, body and soul.

My best teachers are Great Spirit, my pain, my joy, divine love, sunshine, soft baby grass, and the blessed waters that fill our rivers and oceans. I have studied with today’s great master teachers both names you know and those you don’t know for over 1,000 hours. My beloved Shiva/Shakti Teachers in no particular order include, Gloria Latham, Shiva Rea, Saul David Raye, Anusara, Sianna Sherman, Noah Maze, and Rod Stryker. I am a dedicated student of Rajanika Tantra believing that we all share the dharma of love and the fastest way to love is to meditate.

My classes holistically integrate various styles of yoga, primarily Vinyasa, Kundalini and Anusara, where transitioning with elegance while we flow with the breath and wisely align the poses to our own unique bodies cultivates embodiment and connection to our highest potential.
