Alchemy of Yoga Scholarships

Alchemy of Yoga is whole-heartedly devoted to the art of self-study. When a yogi feels called to step into the deeper world of self-study, we never wish for finances to impede this path. A 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training requires a significant investment on several levels — not only the financial consideration, but also the commitment of time + resources. The investment is in yourself and it yields transformation on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual planes. Alchemy of Yoga is unique from other teacher training programs in that it goes way beyond mastering yoga poses.

By: Silvia Mordini, Featured on DoYouYoga.com The truth is, I work a lot. I travel to fulfill my dharma to teach peace and inspire happiness. I’m in different time zones, and often lack reliable WiFi or have low bandwidth. I can’t afford an international cell phone plan, just cheap sim cards for local calls.   Even when I’m not off-grid, I meditate a lot by myself so I’m still off-grid (in a sense, living in another realm.) I’m also an introvert hiding in plain sight as an extrovert, which requires time alone to recharge. I get so involved in my role of healer-teacher that I forget to leave time to stay more connected.   What has changed for me, as I get wiser, is how important sisterhood is now more than…

What is Dharma?

Living Your Dharma is the Heart of the Alchemy of Yoga Dharma is the first word in the Bhagavad-Gita. “The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling.” ― Fabienne Fredrickson What is Dharma?
