"Decoding the Tarot by Alanna Kaivalya is a comprehensive, mystical, fun, and highly informative course about how we can utilize divination in our everyday lives by tapping into the potency of the unconscious, following the pattern of Joseph Campbell's "Journey of the Hero". This course is enchanting, very clear and easy to understand for the beginner Tarot practitioner. Alanna's extensive knowledge in mythology, psychology, astrology and spirituality forms a powerful platform for the student to jump into clearly understanding, decoding and utilizing the Tarot with ease. It was an absolute delight learning the modules, the course is very easy to navigate, and Alanna goes over in great detail about the entire Tarot deck. She mentions throughout the course that "this is not fortune telling, it's divine information based on the energetic imprint of the individual as we look into their unconscious mind to see what's active for them". I highly recommend this course for anybody on their journey, it is a wonderful tool to have as we navigate through the murky waters of the unconscious mind. Having a good understanding of the messages of the Tarot illuminates our paths, based on what's active for the individual." Tunde F-K.

I’m Alanna Kaivalya.

Often referred to as the Yoga Doctor, I help yoga teachers embody their knowledge, up-level their skills and create more impact in the world. I give you clear pathways to earning a living with your spiritual practice and help others with your gift.

I know how difficult it is to set yourself apart and thrive as a yoga instructor, so I want to teach you to be more than be a spiritual advisor, healer, and master of the stars. As a #modernmystic, we are the torchbearers of spirituality for modern people; we are the guides that provide our students access to yoga’s enduring power as a healing and enlightening tool.

On this principle I founded The Kaivalya Yoga Method, a fresh take on yoga emphasizing the individual path while honoring tradition. Teaching students since 2001, teachers since 2003, I’ve written and developed teacher trainings worldwide for top studios and independently. In 2015, I debuted a comprehensive 500 hr online teacher training with YogaDownload.

I hold a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, have authored numerous articles and three 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. My third book, Yoga Beyond the Mat, is a guidebook showing practitioners how to make yoga their spiritual practice. I live in New York City with Roxy the Wonderdog.
