About the name: The Saudi Alchemist

At the age of fifteen, I read Paulo Coelho’s novel, The Alchemist. It would change my life forever. The book’s main theme is how to find one’s true destiny and spiritual calling. The whole journey teaches us to follow our heart; we should seize every opportunity in the pursuit of happiness. But the most impactful message it kept for me is, that the treasure we are searching for, somewhere out there, is and always has been hidden in the innermost part of ourselves! I am experiencing every day, the transformative power of all practice guidelines and amazing tools that I have so far been exposed to, and I am grateful to share these with my students. From the Alignment-Based Yoga that I practice and teach to the Breathwork and Sound Immersions that activate energy flowing, all the way to Meditation, the whole array of these activities leads to what I call, Inner Alchemy. It definitely is not magic. I am offering practical tools and a clear road map on how to attain the right perception and profound understanding of knowledge that is grounded in science and rooted in universal laws and logic. One of my esteemed teachers once called me a holistic alchemist, and that truly resonated with me, as it ties together pretty much all the things l do.
Oh, and yes, I am Saudi! =)

With love,
Alaa
