I’m Retiring from Leading Yoga Retreats

About my beloved Alchemy Tours:
We are moment seekers. Catching the surf wave. Noticing the sunset. Releasing baby turtles. Watching monkeys. Tasting gourmet delights. Smiling. Laughing. Enjoying each experience that we have, and not taking it for granted.
.
So often we live as if we are in a dress rehearsal for something better coming along. The reality is that this is it. Each day is the ultimate practice of living in the moment. If you feel the need to refresh your spirit, reignite your #passion for living, and rediscover balance in your life, then going on a yoga retreat is what you need. Furthermore, we are 100% committed to helping you reach your full #potential in a friendly, unpretentious, and supportive environment. want to see you move beyond self-limiting belief or old paradigms into the empowerment of creating your best life ever!
.
Each fun-filled yoga adventure combines physical, mindful, and spirit-filled activities that grow your self-confidence and teach you how to live your life more fully. We hold these spiritual adventures in our favorite healing places, sacred places…they also just happen to be some of the most beautiful places on earth! Rest assured we’ve paid attention to every detail to make an #exceptional experience for you.
.
What are you waiting for? In these chaotic times, it is imperative to slow down more than ever so that we can again find our center and realize what is most important to you. A spiritual adventure helps you heal your soul and learn how to make healthy choices for your greater happiness. Each retreat provides loving accommodations, inspirational talks, expert instruction, cultural excursions and healthy, farm to fork, delicious meals.
.
Remember that you don’t need anyone else’s permission but your own to sign up. You will be part of an intimate group of people just like you who are looking for a “time out.” The prerequisites for attending have nothing to do with athletic ability or experience, and everything to do with an open heart, a playful curiosity, an inquisitive mind.
.
Now is the time to de-stress. No one can decide for us what actions to take in our lives. No one knows our hearts the way we do. Register today at and make a trip of a lifetime a dream come true!

I hope you join me on my last yoga retreats I’ll be leading in April Bali or June Amalfi. 

Love your day, love yourself, love your life!

Meet Teresa Correia Future Yoga Teacher and Inspiration Leader

I have the honor to introduce you to Teresa Correia, Inspiration Leader, Future Yoga Teacher with Alchemy of Yoga in Bali! Never stop believing in your dreams.


I’ve always known I want to be a yoga teacher one day. After stepping out of my first yoga experience at the age of 18, I knew I had just been drawn into the most beautiful life long practise.

There was also fear. Turning a passion into purpose is something I am tentative of. Feeding my fears of obligation and commitment. I figured I’d do it later in life. It was sort of in my ‘too hard basket’.

It’s funny how the big things in life seem to happen all at once. I thought I was having a really horrible week when I was made redundant from my job, my knee injury worsened (I was training to run the Queenstown marathon on my 24th birthday and those hopes were dwindling fast) I had the flu and I just felt like I had never met lady luck in my life.

Just as I was settling back into the cold intimacy of rock bottom, just about to throw away the last trivial amount of hope I held…my horrible week got a lot less horrible. I got offered the scholarship of my dreams.

Screenshot 2016-08-26 16.32.41I didn’t want to jinx it when the next serendipitous ‘coincidence’ happened. I asked a question to the Alchemy Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training team, and after a few emails back and fourth, I was offered a life changing scholarship.

I was beyond excited. I only told my partner, parents and dog because based on my long spell of bad luck I had grown superstitious and I didn’t want to curse it.

I was due to leave in a month, and I spent my minimal life savings on flights the next day.

In my 23 years of this life, my brain and the universe have taken me to some harrowing places. Yoga has always been the single thing I know I can always come back to. The practice to ground, to realign, to reconnect with myself and the earth. To feel my heart beat in my body once again. I think it is vital to smile and to practise the often unacknowledged currency of the universe; love.

THE COUNTDOWN…26 AUG – 31 DAYS TILL DEPARTURE:
Today I sense absolute joy, anticipation and nervousness throughout my body, mind and soul. To me, these feel like grounded sensations in today’s context. The most nourishing emotion I feel today, in my gut, is peace and truth. I know this is the right path of my journey, I haven’t felt this way about many situations, so this is a very cleansing and refreshing feeling. This blanket of absolution that seems to be surrounding me is such a welcomed change.

Of course I’m daunted and scared, who wouldn’t be? It will be hard work and there will be moments of adversity, but I think that’s how all the best things in life are formed. One of my teachers reminded me that in order to be a teacher; one must remain a lifelong student. I am also reminded of one of the many pieces of wisdom that my mother has offered me; “education is the progressive discovery of our own ignorance”.

Screenshot 2016-08-26 16.32.29My mum is more than my best friend. She is my go-to-woman for any hurdle that life might raise. She will always be my biggest safety net and we have a spiritual link that needs no explanation. She was my first home, that her body assembled around me, my first love song was annotated by her heartbeat. She has, and will continue, to shape me to be just as strong, just as tall and just as astute as all of the sky scraper women who came before me.

Last night she messaged me a quote that she said seems to sum me up; “She was beautifully out of place. Sometimes I believe she intended to be. Like the moon during the day”. I agreed with her.

Today I have been inundated with ideas about my future. I have drafted a few designs of my logo, I have started to write down ideas for my website which my partner will help me launch when I return home after teacher training, and I have started my study and preparations for what is ahead, and I am so HAPPY.
