About the Alchemy Studio

Our studio is a community focused yoga space where people can come to learn, connect, explore and experience the many benefits Yoga has to offer. We host weekly classes, workshops, student and teacher trainings and experiences. We also have a small shop and a library. The kettle is always on and there is always a smile to welcome you at the door!

Unlike other studios we are run and operated by the teachers. This allows for the student to be at the forefront of the experience, for each teacher to earn a decent wage from sharing their gifts and for the profits to be fairly distributed. Yoga means union, to come together, and so we feel this is the way most in keeping with the yogic philosophy and ethos. Many places teach yoga classes. We teach you about yoga. Hence the word School in the name. If you want to do yoga, come join us. If you want to learn about yoga, come join us. If you want to do both, come join us!

We go to great lengths to ensure the energy is protected and nurtured. It is a living space after all. Filled with air purifying plants, featuring a beautiful alter and burning only 100% natural incense you can breathe deep, and breathe clean. The space is cleaned physically and energetically on a regular basis. The energy in the studio has to be experienced to be believed. Fully stocked with an abundance of props we will have you fully supported and sinking into relaxation. The studio was founded by Jeanie Jyanti and the name originated from her understanding of the yoga practice as a holistic and magical process to transform your entire being. As a Chemist by academic training the word Alchemy just made sense. You can read more about her here.
