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:
- Physical Alchemy – Tapas To ignite the changes we want to make in our lives we must geta a solid foundation. Traveling through the elements we work our way through the first three chakras Mulhadara (1st chakra), Svadhisthana (2nd chakra), Manipura (3rd chakra).
EARTH (Muladhara 1): To manifest our desires we must have strong roots within ourselves
WATER ( Svadhisthana 2): We tap into our limitless potential to create our dreams and desires
FIRE (Manipura 3): We ignite the fire of our burning desires and dreams through action
- Mental Alchemy – Svadhaya. In yoga we study the self to learn about the self. Here the mental alchemy is through self-observation. By witnessing our thoughts we become aware of our mental patterns and the obstacles to our happiness. We journey through the heart and throat chakra to align the love and wisdom from our hearts and communicate it out to the world, aligning our thoughts, words and actions with our truth.
AIR (Anahata 4): Our inner wisdom becomes available to us when we open up the heart and learn to surrender to love, letting go of what is no longer in alignment with our hearts.
- Spiritual Alchemy – ishvara pranidahana. As we are doing and watching, we let go of the ego of judgement. We move beyond wanting life to be different and begin to feel the surrender and acceptance of the natural flow of the present moment. We understand that there is no reason to stop this flow for its natural current is to align with the current of grace that is everywhere outside us. Beauty becomes our way of life. Happiness becomes our natural alchemy once again.
(Vishudha 5): Communicating our wisdom learned from the heart with clarity and truth. To open the heart and surrender to love we must have a strong knowing of our truth.
(Ajna 6): We open up through the third eye in order to sink back as the observer of our being. As we do this, all negative thoughts and egoistic tendencies dissolve and we return back to stillness, happiness and love. We surrender to the guidance of our inner wisdom and know that all the answers we seek lie within us.
(Sahasrara 7): The flow of grace all around us flows through us from an open crown (7th) chakra. We become the embodiment of the Divine, a unique expression of consciousness, dwelling in our natural alchemy of love and peace
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. This 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 Happiest existence!

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.
ABOUT HOW I TEACH YOGA
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.
Look for my upcoming book “Happiness Prescriptions,” read my popular blog called Love Your Life (named one of the top Yoga blogs for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), along with enjoying my “Loving Your Day” YouTube channel. My articles appear regularly in magazines such as Mantra Yoga and on various yoga sites such as MindBodyGreen, Yoganonymous, GaiaTV, Daily Cup of Yoga, and I am is the author of the The Alchemy of Yoga blog on DoYouYoga.com.
