Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training in Florence, Italy
Apr 13, 2016| $1999
Hello and Super Namaste!
I want you to become part of my Alchemy of Yoga Family. We are a tribe. We are seekers, adventurers, lovers of love, rebel spirits, stretchy-minded, soulful spirits. We enjoy supporting one another, laughter, organic food, dancing in the moonlight, lounging in the hot tub under the stars, playing in the pool, silent meditation hikes, taking naps & enthusiastic conversation about elevating the world.
In our intimate Kula (community of the heart, extended family), we will delve into the deepest study of who we are so we can live our happiness in a big way. More than simply mastering some yoga poses (though you will accomplish this), I want to see you become more self-aware and self-confident in your dharma. This is the part where you find out who you are.
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. I do not follow an authoritarian model of teaching where I just tell you what to do.
Instead, I want you to listen to yourself, pay attention to your body and discern for yourself what supports your authenticity.
How does the Alchemy of Yoga work? It transforms us on three levels: Physical Alchemy, Spiritual Alchemy, and Mental Alchemy. For us as Alchemist Yogis our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, poses, breath, thoughts and the mixing it all together changes our life.
Happiness becomes our natural alchemy.
I know picking a Yoga School is hard. If my philosophy and approach resonates with you then apply today and let’s talk more to know for sure. I’d love the opportunity to be part of your soul journey!
With peace in all ways, ~Silvia~ Alchemy of Yoga
With deep respect and honor: This program is enriched by many ancient teachings, not just yoga, it also draws from Joseph Campbell, Brene Brown, Thich Nhat Hahn, Pema Chodron, Jack Kornfield, Wayne Dyer, Shamanism, Ayurvedic studies, Mythology, and energy systems like the Chakras

Alchemy of Yoga works on three levels: Physical Alchemy, Spiritual Alchemy, and Mental Alchemy. As Alchemist Yogis, our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, poses, breaths, and thoughts.
