of training yoga teachers

Silvia Mordini

I am an adventurer. A hero and a heroine. The prince and the princess. Ala “Sleeping Beauty” I’ve kissed myself awake. I drive myself home. I travel solo. I’ve owned multiple homes since I was twenty-three years old. I am an independent woman. I am a risk taker. I make the grand gesture. I’ve risked it ALL for love. I don’t hold back. I leap with both feet in. When I wake up I say YES to life and recite my mantra “this is the BEST day ever.” I do not edit the full expression of the pose on the mat or the fullest expression of my life. I embrace it ALL. I teach others to do the same. To say YES to the ultimate adventure. Thirteen years ago I even founded a School to teach how to say YES to being yourself, the ultimate hero and heroines journey, I named it alchemy of yoga.

With over 11,000 hours of yoga teaching experience I make yoga approachable and inspiring for everyone. 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 13 year old international Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training School with 26 graduating classes of Love Alchemists. 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 2015), 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 MindBodyGreenYoganonymousGaiaTVDaily Cup of Yoga, and I am is the author of the The Alchemy of Yoga blog on DoYouYoga.com.

Cole has been a seeker all her life. It has brought her into the depths of addiction, to all corners of the world, and most importantly to the path of yoga. Through this practice, she has begun to understand, unravel, and explore the most fascinating of all landscapes….the inner one. There is always room to find more freedom and come closer to wholeness both on and off the mat; Cole’s teaching style reflects her desire to support her students discover on their own unique journey.

Cole has been practicing and teaching Thai Yoga Massage for a decade, is a 500-RYT, international retreat leader, passionate about teaching to the addiction recovery community, consistent in broadening her knowledge in Yoga and Buddhist philosophy, ravenous book nerd, croissant connoisseur, wanderlust junkie, and seeker of the full range of experience. Her philosophy is to live wide, love big, look deep, and ALWAYS leave room for possibilities!


Addiction is insidious and takes many forms with substance abuse being only one manifestation. Many find themselves suffering from toxic relationships, codependency, eating disorders, anxiety, perfectionism, undigested traumas….this list goes on and on.


Addiction is HARD WORK and all-consuming. Whether it’s alcohol or the brutal mind spin, it takes 110% of our energy to sustain that vicious wheel rolling. Luckily there are ways to transform that energy towards finding freedom and healing; to reorganize our patterns from destructive to productive.


Yoga means to yoke, to connect, to unify. It can help harmonize our lives and create balance in this ever-changing and challenging world. By moving stagnant energy, emotion, and trauma through our bodies, learning how to work with our nervous system through the breath, and getting curious about our minds through meditation and self-inquiry, we can begin to peel back the layers and truly create relationship with ourselves and the world as it is. No need to hide, fix, or run.

We can do hard things. Not only is sobriety possible, but I truly believe we can alchemize addiction, transform it from chaos into clarity, and live a life you’ve never dreamt possible.

Jennifer Bell

Hello and welcome! I'm Jennifer. My yoga journey started around the time I was 24 years old and working at my first post-college job at an advertising agency in Seattle, WA. I was only one year into my career and I was already feeling overwhelmed and a little burned out. A coworker-friend invited me to come to a Vinyasa class with her. I can't recall my exact thoughts, but I strongly remember how I felt after the class; vibrant, energized, and at peace in my mind! Over a few years of practice, yoga and meditation became vehicles for so many personal transformations. Steadily, while on my mat, many of my limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors were brought into the light so that I could work through them. My muscles got stronger; so did my confidence. Yoga taught me how to care for myself with compassion.

In 2016 I completed alchemy of yoga 200-hour Teacher Training in beautiful Costa Rica. Silvia's inspiring teachings, intuitive care, and thorough guidance were so empowering and impactful. Since then I've completed numerous trauma-informed yoga teacher training intensives that have opened my awareness to accessible and inclusive approaches to yoga, trauma, neuroscience, social justice, and addiction recovery. Believing even more deeply in the healing powers of yoga, I chose to shift my career in advertising and marketing to freelance work so I could dive into teaching yoga wholeheartedly. It's been a personally challenging and beautiful journey! My favorite part is holding space for other people – wherever they are at in life – to feel empowered to heal themselves.

Now contributing to alchemy of yoga's marketing efforts, I couldn't be happier and more grateful to serve the very program that shifted my life in the best way possible!
