Do you suffer from chronic pain or illness? Have you found that yoga and spiritual practice leave you feeling more aligned and uplifted? Are you interested in having the tools to create balance – inside and outside – all the time?
Enter the chakras: A millennia-old body of wisdom pointing us to the deeper wisdom of the body. We are more than physical beings. Our bodies are expressions of our deeper truths, belief systems, traumas, patterns and past experiences. Everything we have ever been a part of or participated in is stored in our bodies. Like our own walking autobiography, our bodies carry around our story.
What story do you want to tell? And, are you listening to the one that is speaking now?
Our bodies express the truth that we carry inside.
In order to create a different physical expression – one of optimal health and wellbeing – we must consciously create an inner truth that promotes health, balance, and alignment with our highest self. This is more than just "positive thinking," this is a practice that requires inner listening, and the tools of yoga, spirituality, psychology and ritual to create a healthy dialogue between our inner and outer selves.
This is the key to balance. This is the key to our bliss.

"Taking Alanna's Alchemy of the Chakras course was a most enriching experience. As a yoga teacher and student of yoga, the information I received in this course added a rich dimension to my teaching and personal practice, but most importantly helped deepen my insight into my interpersonal relationships.
This fascinating material is offered in an organized and very digestible fashion through a combination of video, audio and written instruction with a writing exercise which helped me to reflect personally on the impact of what was presented each week.
Alanna's warmth, intelligence and passion for this material is clearly evident. She is very encouraging and responsive to inquiries and comments.
I truly feel I received an invaluable tool that will serve me well both personally and professionally."

"Your research, understanding, and assimilation of the vast and crucial knowledge is apparent in the written word and rings even more true through your voice. Thank you for making it available and accessible to all.
As I learn, I pass the wisdom of the stories and the practices with my beginning students. I am enjoying the deep and satisfying sips...drinking it all in." — Karen Berdoulay
Alanna believes Yoga is for everyone and each student can develop the self-empowerment needed to embark on a personal journey to meaningful transformation. On this principle she founded The Kaivalya Yoga Method, a fresh take on yoga emphasizing the individual path while honoring tradition. Teaching students since 2001, teachers since 2003, Alanna has written and developed teacher trainings worldwide for top studios and independently. In January she debuted a comprehensive 500hr-online teacher training with YogaDownload. She holds a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, has authored numerous articles and two books: Myths of the Asanas, an accessible practitioner’s guide to stories behind beloved poses; Sacred Sound, a yoga “hymnal,” illustrating the role of chant and mantra in modern practice. Look for her third book, Yoga Beyond the Mat, in Autumn 2016. She lives in New York City with Roxy the Wonderdog.
"I came into this course, The Alchemy of the Chakras, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and the desire for Alanna Kaivalya to play more of a role in my journey. I would like to think that my always strong sense of intuition was simply leading me to something great even though I myself did not fully understand why. What I gained from this course far surpassed whatever expectations I held going into it as it became abundantly clear that I was not simply learning about the chakras. Yes of course that was part of it, however this course went so much deeper than that as I learned about how each chakra affects me on a personal level. Encouraged to take my gaze within, encouraged to go deep, and given the chakras as my guide, thus I started down the path.
Alanna has the course laid out as 7 modules, one for each energy center. Each module was brilliantly constructed, unfolding as though a story, and within each story, I was presented with a multi-faceted look into that particular chakra. Dr. Kaivalya’s language was beautiful, eloquent, thought-provoking, even poetic at times as she introduced me to unfamiliar territory, yet in a fully loving and supportive way. With the full spectrum approach she provided into each chakra, I was given a multitude of ways in which to tap into each one. Whether it was igniting it through a guided chakrasana practice, invoking it through the presiding planet, sending focused energy to it through the performance of a ritual, or simply chanting a Bija mantra, I had every possible tool at my disposal.
For as much information as I was given, it was done in such an approachable way: clear, easily understood, accessible, and overall just allowing for a smooth incorporation into the knowledge base I already have of the chakras and moreover the knowledge base I have of my own self. I found that integrating everything into my own practice and into my own teaching was really quite natural, and I fully credit Dr. Kaivalya with creating the perfect environment in which to absorb the material.The final (and quite possibly best) aspect to The Alchemy of the Chakras course is that it is lead by a teacher who speaks with such passion, authenticy, sincerity, wisdom, and grace that I know I want to follow her guidance."
