Our yoga teacher training and personal development program is wholeheartedly dedicated to the art of self-study through self-exploration. Consider this the ultimate alchemist adventure: it is a Hero’s Journey that will both challenge and encourage you to embrace your potential, awaken your inner power, ignite your passion, and live with the sense of bliss and contentment that all of us are born to experience!
Upon completion, you will be prepared to design and confidently lead intelligent alignment driven Vinyasa, Hatha and Restorative classes, all with your own signature style. You’ll also have the skill to adapt to varied fitness and experience levels of your students. You will graduate as a Happiness Ambassador ready to authentically and effectively inspire others while carrying out Alchemy of Yoga’s ultimate mission to "Teach Peace."
We 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), we want to see you become more self-aware and self-confident in the authentic expression of your dharma. This is the part where you find out who you are. Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for two hundred hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives and expanding consciousness into radical authenticity.
The result is something beyond words. It is, as best as we can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga. This alchemical process transforms us on three levels, through what we call Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Alchemy, which is woven together throughout the training.
Physical Alchemy – Tapas
To ignite the changes we want to make in our lives we must establish a solid foundation. Traveling through the elements we work our way through the first three chakras Mulhadara, Svadhisthana, and Manipura.
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 chakra to align the love and wisdom from our hearts and communicate it out to the world, aligning thoughts, words and actions with our truth.
Spiritual Alchemy – Ishvara Pranidhana
As we are doing and watching, we let go of the ego of judgment. 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.

I honestly recommend this training for anyone who enjoys practicing yoga and is interested in personal development and growth. It is an amazing journey you take to know yourself and have a better understanding of who you are. A beautiful, enlightening experience that I would do all over again. It has developed, supported and empowered me in my life. – Dana, Lululemon
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! – Olivia
Silvia – I entered teacher training just hoping to deepen my practice but the reality is I graduated as a whole new me. This was an adventure that pushed, challenged and encouraged me to grow. In a matter of months I became more self-aware and self-confident than any time in my life. I wasn’t surrounded by a group of students that wanted to perfect their asanas. I joined a Kula (a community of the heart), an extended family that offered unconditional support and inspiration. I am grateful to Silvia Mordini for the professional, organized and extremely informative yoga training, but I am eternally indebted to Silvia for creating a safe space for growth and helping open my eyes to my potential! – Casey

ABOUT EMILY PERRY
YOGA | SPIRIT | SOUL
Making the everyday sacred, Emily's known for weaving energetics & Bhakti [devotion] into strong flow + soulful vinyasa practice.
Born in Los Angeles, Emily came into contact with yoga and pilates as a dancer in L.A. and Santa Monica. It wasn’t until college in upstate New York, however, that the practice of yoga and meditation found her. She discovered yoga around the same time she started practicing Zen meditation. It was a book called “Light on Yoga,” that really hooked her, as she found it to be an amazing manual for living a joyful, healthy, peaceful life.
During that same time Emily began studying herbalism with Native American healers, and soon found a calling to study Chinese Medicine and holistic health. Eventually, when she returned to Los Angeles, she dove into vinyasa flow yoga during its early stages, and felt immediately at home. Emily has studied with numerous yoga luminaries, and still continues her meditation practice she began back in 1994.
Emily’s yoga practice has carried her through Acupuncture school, two pregnancies, and has become the heart of her everyday life. Emily eventually left her Acupuncture practice as yoga teaching became a full time offering. Now, as a wife and mother with two kids, Emily is based in Santa Cruz, California, while offering workshops, immersions, retreats and trainings internationally.
Emily has written for several publications online, including Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society, and Yoganonymous, and has a podcast on iTunes, The Essence of Yoga. She has taught workshops at several festivals, including Bhaktifest West and Pranafest, and leads kirtan. She also also been featured in campaigns for Yoga Download, and is a Manduka brand Ambassador.
Emily currently teaches Bhakti Power Vinyasa, mindfulness and meditation, trains students in her yoga teacher training programs, and mentors teachers in her SKILLFUL PATH mastermind. Look for her upcoming book, THE INNER SHIFT, coming soon in 2018. In addition to leading online courses, you can often find Emily on the mat when she’s not out surfing with the kids, hiking in the redwoods with the dog, or at home cooking plant-based meals.
