“Alchemy is the process of taking something ordinary and transforming it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained”
Yoga Alchemy is a 6 month transformational coaching program.
For the caterpillar to transform into the butterfly, it must go into the darkness of the cocoon. It is alone, in the dark, forced to face itself with no clear way out.
For the caterpillar, this is the dark night of the soul.
This journey has many parallels with our yoga practice.
We start the yoga journey full of hope and excitement and we enjoy moving and stretching our body. We can see and FEEL the changes taking shape. But after some months of practice, our emotional baggage comes to the surface.
It’s at this point that our yoga practice loses some of its light and becomes darker. It can be hard to see the light when we’re deep in the mud of our own emotions, patterns and behaviours.
We’ve awoken something uncomfortable, and we lack the tools to navigate the discomfort.
Transformation isn’t glamourous, the actual destruction of the caterpillar is painful and uncomfortable.
I’ve been in the dark cocoon. I’ve sifted through my emotions, forgiving the past and healing trauma.
I’ve made peace with myself.
I’ve mined my darkness and found gold.
This is inner work. This is Yoga Alchemy.
