"Magical Experience"

I loved this three week program, full of lots of hard work and lots of fun. Silvia and Emily really put so much time and effort into making this teacher training a full and complete experience for their students. They met me where I was and helped me clear the path for where I go next.

Silvia and Emily held space for each student so wonderfully and did their best to cater to everyone, I was so impressed at how they held everything together with such a big group of women, and man! Everything about the whole training was so well coordinated, I would have liked to spend more time on Ayurveda. Thank you ladies :)

Location and accommodations couldn't have been better. Trainers have beautiful practices and are extremely knowledgeable in the world of yoga, Ayurvedics, etc...

We got to see many historic places in Italy, and visited several wineries. Our accommodations were very nice, I loved being out in the country.

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!!

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.

It has been four months since I returned from Bali and I dream about my time there almost every night. Alchemy of yoga is not just a yoga school, it is a life changing experience. Yes, you will learn the asana and some very good tricks and tips along with the history but alchemy interestingly enough tailors the lessons to go inside with what is going on in your life. I still have not figured out how and stopped trying on day 3! I believe in magic again and destiny and most importantly myself. Silvia and the whole alchemy of yoga team is committed to you and making sure you get everything you came for plus a little more. My yoga blossomed 100% but so did my overall understanding and appreciation of the study and humanity. I learned how to take care of my body and what it feels like to eat and follow an Ayurvedic diet. Sylvia took us to some really special places in Bali that had I been a traveler I would have missed. We met some of her wonderful Balinese friends and got to see what there day to day life is like, and get blessed in a water purification ceremony! Where in the world can you do that? Yes you can go to a million yoga teacher trainings and they will all have the same books and close curriculum but you will not get a lifetime friend, teacher, or experience that you would with alchemy. Silvia even makes sure everyone is registered with Yoga Alliance on the last day, that is a huge deal bc it is very tedious and I have many friends who spent months after their teacher training(not w alchemy) trying to get registered. Silvia also gets you ready for life after Bali by getting your mission statement, helping you develop your brand, coining a webpage and various social media platforms. Any dream you have Silvia will go with you to help you achieve it. I still dream of Bali, but it was the best investment I have ever made. It changed me for ever and for the better. I made lifelong friends that I still speak to once a week from all over the world. If you are considering a yoga teacher training and want a reboot and fresh take on life..alchemy of yoga is the way to go.

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!
