ARE YOU WONDERING HOW THE ALCHEMY OF YOGA WORKS?

It transforms us on three levels: Physical Alchemy, Spiritual Alchemy, and Mental Alchemy. Ancient Alchemists, like their Yogi counterparts, saw all of creation as composed of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Through their meditations and explorations of these five elements, they created healing and transformative potions that unlocked many of the mysteries of the universe and therein contributed to the evolution of humankind. For us as Alchemist Yogis, our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, poses, breath, and thoughts. Mixing it all together changes your life. You are transformed into a Peace Leader, leading a Happiness Revolution and changing the world!

I’m Not Sure I Want to Teach Yoga

I often hear people say “I’m not sure if I want to teach yoga,” when thinking about a yoga teacher training. My heart responds, we are ALL teachers.

Wisdom teachers abound everywhere you go. Each time you order a latte at your favorite coffee shop you are teaching by the example you set for those around you: how to be kind. When you park your car at the grocery store you are teaching others how to be gracious. When you share what you have you are teaching generosity.

We do not need to all teach #asana (yoga poses) post YTT but certainly investing in a program that opens your heart to who you really are is more than worthwhile.

Over the last 20 years of teaching and leading a Yoga School the best students are those that don’t have a meticulous post program action plan. Instead, they are focused on learning and experiencing their personal growth. Just as in a yoga class the goal is the practice rather than accomplishing a “pose.” In Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) allow your intention to be to show up as your real self and peal back the layers of all that stands in the way of living your most authentic life.

The Best teachers are those that know themselves the best. 

And from the study of the self, to the self, through the self, what are you ready to teach?

And we can ALL #teachpeace

The world needs more Teachers of #Peace. And that sort of teaching is off the mat, no yoga studio or class necessary. It can become the way we live our lives.

Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training Program

There are many variables when choosing a teacher training program in general and even more so as a destination program in places like Bali or Costa Rica.

  • History of Program. How long has this program been offered?
  • Duration. How long does the program last? What works best for you, shorter length like 3 weeks and more intense study or longer period of 9 months or something in between.
  • Location. Where do you want to live while immersed in self-study that will serve you best. How will you be the least distracted? Living at home or a residential destination program?
  • Mission of School. Are you in alignment with the overall mission of what the yoga school offers? What is the overall teaching intention for the program?
  • Type of Yoga. Are you interested in only the asana and not meditation, mantra, or other sacred  practices (including energy medicine.) Choose wisely so it meets your expectations.
  • Size of Program. Do you learn best as one of 200 students, 40 students or fewer than 20?

Most of all think about what it is YOU want out of the program? 

ABOUT ALCHEMY OF YOGA:
If you want to only know how to practice and teach triangle pose then there are other programs that excel at that. If you are interested in your OWN self-development, for the best teachers are those that know their authentic selves, then we are a great fit! We have 11 years of history in offering our program 21 times. We continue to improve our accelerated learning methods to help our tribe members grow most easily.

Our focus is YOU. Not so much triangle pose.

We concentrate on the People part of our program. Of course you’ll get the techniques but its really the difference between emphasizing the person doing the pose or the pose itself as more important than the person. We choose YOU.

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.

ALCHEMYOFYOGALOGO

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 psyche, emotions, and well-being.

When you join together in a Kula (“community of the heart”), we are all the Alchemist in his/her laboratory mixing the ingredients. As alchemist yogis, our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, our poses, our breath, our thoughts. Mixing it all together creates a different result every time and changes your life! You wake up to the power you have to go into the lab of your life experience and mix the potions you want to create your most INSPIRED life!

Water is Sacred

Alchemy of Yoga School July 1-21: Elemental ‪#‎Heart‬ Medicine
‪#‎Water‬

“Streaming fluids flood our cells, washing through endless river ways of veins, and capillaries in the vast poem of hydrological cycle.” -John Seed and Joanna Macy

Water is sacred. It is essential for the maintenance of life on Earth. Our bodies are 60-70% water. The majority of the Earth’s surface is water. But what is the state of that water: water within us and water outside us? It is up to us to do our part to heal the precious Waters of our dear Mother Earth. We begin by healing ourselves, treating our own lives as sacred and special. This is the ‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬

WATER

Yoga Class Plan

Philosophical Theme: Giving and Grounding

2 ganesha king dancerPhysical Focus: Lower Body Stability, Upper Body Strengthening

Elements: Earth and Fire

Chakras? Root and Sacral. First and Third.

Pranayama: Double inhale through nose, double exhale through mouth (in planks)

Emphasis: Dynamic and Static Masculine Energies

It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding;
And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.
And is there aught you would withhold?

 

All you have shall some day be given;

 

Therefore give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors’.
See first that you yourself deserve to be a giver, and an instrument of giving.
For in truth it is life that gives unto life while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness.

 

And you receivers… and you are all receivers… assume no weight of gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.
Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as on wings;
For to be overmindful of your debt, is to doubt his generosity who has the freehearted earth for mother, and God for father.
– Kahlil Gibran
