Who am I?:
Hi I’m Jeanie Jyanti (she/her) of Alchemy School of Yoga. I’m passionate about taking yoga off the mat and helping others discover the many aspects of yoga and how you can integrate them into your everyday life. My desire is to preserve the ancient teachings of yoga, gifted to us from Mother India, and allow people all over the world to experience the immense benefits yoga can have on your life. I love combining yoga with my other passions of food and music.
Born and raised in Ireland my Celtic roots and love of mysticism lends to a holistic and varied interest in Spirituality. You will usually find me laughing, thinking about food, nerding out on biochemistry, singing mantra or talking about my dog!
What do I teach?:
I teach Akhanda Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and Parent and Baby Yoga. I teach yoga to suit all levels and abilities so the majority of my classes are for every level. I adore that yoga really can be practised by everyone in one space and I am truly passionate about creating an environment to allow people of all abilities to feel comfortable, challenged and supported. I regularly incorporate varied Pranayama practices, mudras, mantras and kryias in my practices. They can allow a deeper connection and self exploration and really take your practice to the next level.
What do I do?:
I teach a variety of weekly classes, workshops, teacher trainings and student trainings.
Hosting Retreats and Events in Ireland, Spain and the UK from day long to week long these incorporate food workshops, kirtans (sacred singing circles), kryia experiences, yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and a lot more.
I love curating Yoga Events and currently run: Food and Yoga Walking Tours of Cork City, ‘The Yoga of Food’ Evenings allowing students to discover a yogic approach to food -while enjoying yummy nibbles, Kirtans – sacred chanting and mantra circles, Self Practice workshops – allowing people to learn how to have an at home self practice and many more.
I have been studying yoga for over ten years and teaching yoga full time for seven years. I am a Studio Owner, Yoga Events Curator, Retreat Leader as well as a Yoga Teacher Trainer. Being passionate about education I strive to continuously inspire and educate all of my students, teachers and teacher trainees.
I have studied and trained under the joyous Yogrishi Vishvketu PhD of Akhanda Yoga in Rishikesh, India and I have over 700hrs RYT. I’ve also studied with the sublime Usha Anandi of Womben Wellness, as well as Sally Parkes Yoga and Uma Dinsmore Tuli to gain over RPYT200 in Pregnancy, Post-natal, Fertility and Parent and Baby Yoga.
I am passionate about Yoga Education and feel strongly that we need to elevate the standard and authenticity of Yoga Teacher Trainings. I have taught on YTTs in India and Ireland and continue to learn through teaching.
I have worked in the corporate world of Pharmaceuticals for 7 years having completed my BSc Hons in Chemistry from UCC. However, I believed in yogic practices so much I left my full time, permanent, pensionable job (much to my Father’s horror!) to teach full time. I’m excited to help you discover these practices too.
