Founded in June 2022, Alchemy Yoga and Meditation Center (AYMC) located in Ubud, Bali, was established to cater to holistic seekers, going beyond just yoga programs to a more wholesome experience that involves body, mind and spirit. It offers a place to study, practice and participate in community, within beautiful surroundings of lush greenery and eco conscious architecture, an important part of the healing process of which Ubud is famous for.
Alchemy Yoga is a radically life affirming practice rooted in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, offered in a way that is accessible and relevant to the modern practitioner. Its core belief is that a spiritual life is balanced through study, practice and community. These three pillars provide the foundation of a practice that extends from the yoga mat into one’s daily life.
Daily classes are linked to elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, as well as offering a practice called Krama, a class with a unique set and progression of postures at the AYMC. Each class type provides students with a unique approach to the practice that can be suitable at different times for different experience levels, daily energy, or personal preference.
“We established Alchemy Yoga and Meditation Center to help those lost in a sea of information overload, to find a practice and lifestyle that connects them to their highest expression of Self while keeping them grounded in the everyday world,” claims Ashton Szabo, general manager of AYMC and yoga teacher. It also focuses on community integration, closing the gaps between locals, tourists and expats by creating events which not only facilitates and welcomes all these parties, but also brings them closer together.
Aside from the sustainable and magnificent Yoga Shala constructed by IBUKU, a Bali based sustainable design and architecture firm, AYMC’s Shop offers yoga shoppers with eco-friendly items such as yoga mats, clothing and various accessories. The concept of living in harmony with nature through a balanced spiritual and social life is combined with healthy living and eating. Alchemy Restaurant is a plant based restaurant, established in 2011 by a group of conscious, creative, live food enthusiasts. AYMC features a permaculture food forest managed by the Kul Kul farm at Green School Bali that helps supply organic food to Alchemy Restaurant.
Curated daily classes and events led by world class yogis strengthen the commitment to tradition and its capacity to transform the lives of everyone. Join a community that accepts where you are in your life and practice and meets you there.
