What’s a Dosha?

What’s a Dosha?

#Ayurvedic philosophy is grounded in the belief that the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) manifest in everything. These 5 elements are expressed in 3 Doshas which are a combination of 2 elements:

Vata = Ether and Air
Pitta = Fire and Water
Kapaha = Earth and Water

Join me #AlchemyofYoga YTT #teachertraining and learn how this #alchemy of #earth #water #fire #air #ether impact your life.

Each person has a unique combination of Doshas from the time of conception. Each Dosha has characteristics that manifest physically, mentally and emotionaly in our bodies. Ayurveda strives to balance these Doshas using a combination of lifestyle choices and diet.

Every Little Step Encourages Growth

Grown up #crow pose. A reminder that every little step matters. The smaller poses of our lives create momentum to keep growing towards greater expansion.

This experience of teaching ourselves ultimately becomes the passageway for knowing how to teach others to achieve these growth points.

A great teacher knows how to break down the poses step-by-step making the preparation golden and accessible to all. They give their student the tools necessary to be successful even faster than themselves.

They inspire them to practice every day.

‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬: How to Live an INSPIRED Life: Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, we will explore the vast resources related to How to Live an INSPIRED Life by focusing on the last three ‪#‎Niyamas‬ or personal practices that comprise the Alchemy of Yoga. from the Yoga Sutras (Chapter 2, Verse 1), “Tapas svadhaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga,” they transform us on three levels through Physical, Mental, and ‪#‎Spiritual‬ ‪#‎Alchemy‬. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

Experience the alchemy of the five elements, the four directions, and the chakra system as an inner and outer map of transformation. These are archetypal and energetic maps that are as metaphorical as they are very real and embodied. Everything we see, taste, touch, feel, and do can be interpreted through the gateway of the elements, directions, and chakras. We will learn how to tap into these sacred relationships and align ourselves with their alchemy in order to gain insight into healing our world. Learn more here.

Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum

How does my Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training Peace Leadership Program meet Yoga Alliance requirements? Here you go. You’ll see what we offer is way more than just Yoga.

Curriculum in line with Yoga Alliance Reqs

Yoga Technique, Training & Practice
100 hours
Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Mantra
This is the largest portion of the curriculum, including morning meditation, followed by daily Asana practice. Early morning Satsang will always include a form of meditation, and will also often include various traditional yoga techniques, such as Mantra repetition. The daily Asana portion is typically a vigorous 90 minute Vinyasa Flow class.

Teaching Methodology
30 hours
Personal Development and Sacred Principles of Teaching
Yoga is defined as the study of the self, to the self, through the self. Alchemy of Yoga is dedicated to self-study through both modern and ancient forms of personal development. We wholeheartedly believe the best teachers are those who know themselves the best. Therefore, we offer you ways to unlearn the obstacles to your happiness, how to harness the power of manifestation, and tap into your greatest personal potential. Yes, demonstrating, assisting, and adjusting students is certainly covered. But we also cover how to hold space for others, how to honor the sacred seat of the teacher, and the Alchemy of Communication from our highest selves using Non Violent Communication techniques (NVC). Our program is specifically geared help you discover your authentic voice.

Anatomy & Physiology
25 hours
BOTH Physical & Energetic Anatomy
Alchemy of Yoga anatomical education is more than just learning about muscles and bones. You’ll learn about practical theories and how to apply them to real-life. We cover both the human physical anatomy (skeletal, muscular, respiratory, & cardiovascular systems) as well as energetic anatomy (prana, chakras, nadis, bandhas). There is a specific emphasis on understanding Ayurveda and it’s powerful role in promoting the Alchemy of Balance and Happiness in your life.

Yoga Philosophy & Ethics
30 hours
From The Yoga Sutras to Modern-Day Positive Psychology
Alchemy of Yoga has a non-traditional approach to Yoga Philosophy. Expect a healthy dialogue on key concepts from The Yoga Sutras as well as modern day philosophy and Positive Psychology. We are dedicated to presenting key traditional philosophical concepts, such as Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism). We will also explore ethical relationships and boundaries and what it means to be a psychologically healthy teacher. You will learn techniques about how to guide students to their own experience and be self-led through a non-authoritarian approach, and mindfulness practice as it relates to the business of being a yoga teacher.

Practicum
20 hours
Practice Teaching, Video Feedback, Observations
Using mindful learning techniques, trainees will practice teaching in a variety of settings & scenarios (starting with one on one teaching.) We utilize technology, for example, via video feedback, as another layer to the learning process. Our Practicum is a practical approach to integrating your learning.

What Happens AFTER Your Yoga Teacher Training

“Stage 4: Evolution — Once you have opened into a state of continuous expansion, you can lay the groundwork for evolution. The best thing you can do in this stage is to keep learning, keep peeling back the layers to reveal a kinder, happier more radiant you.” – Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

How to Take Your Yoga Practice Deeper

I hold space for interested students of Yoga and Spirituality to go deeper into self-discovery. Our programs are designed to give an overview of what Yoga really is on ALL levels, not just physical. My 3 week immersions are perfect for those who want to evolve with the support of a tribe and those who want community but don’t desire to teach public classes. As well as those that don’t know if they want to teach yoga. This time is for YOU first and foremost whether you choose the certification track or not. I’d love to be part of your journey to the heart of your self. Love you, Silvia

Alchemy is for everyone with the heart to take a soul plunge into their greatest happiness. Here are two options for self-study:

OPTIONS FOR SELF-STUDY

Allowing space for individual growth, Alchemy of Yoga offers two paths of study:

Option 1 includes above aspects of self-study culminating in formal certification through Yoga Alliance with 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status. Expectations of students following this immersion-based path include:

  • Interest in studying all aspects of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, history and theory, arising from a wish to deepen your practice and engage in self-study.
  • Commitment to attending training sessions and completing additional contact hours including asana classes, observations, assistant teaching, and practice teaching.
  • Participation in group activities and contribute to discussions.
  • Completion of all homework and practicum materials.
  • Support other students.

Option 2 includes Immersion for serious students looking to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga asana, meditation, philosophy, and spirit who do not wish to pursue teaching yoga. As a self-study student, differences in your experience include:

  • You are not required to submit any homework although it is strongly advised that you complete the assigned readings in order to contribute to group discussions.
  • You will not be required to complete the practicum requirements.
  • You will not be graded or assessed in accordance with Yoga Alliance standards.
  • You will not beawarded a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teaching Certificate upon completion, however you will be given a certificate of program completion as a reference for future studies or trainings.

Post-Training Mentorship: Alchemy of Yoga understands that a 200-Hour Teacher Training Program is both a deep-dive into yoga + self-study and simultaneously just the beginning. We are thrilled to offer ongoing resources and mentorship, including but not limited to:

  • Planning a yoga career + business, how to best market yourself while maintaining strong ethical standards and life balance, and how to resolve ethical issues that arise from teaching yoga.
