Gisela Bean


Welcome to Alchemy Movement, a lovingly curated movement, meditation and transformation space in Robindale, Johannesburg. I teach a range of movement modalities that are specifically catered to my clients individual needs. Classes are adjusted and augmented throughout our practice and we move together intuitively to achieve your personal alchemy and transformation.

My purpose is to lovingly assist and guide you to connect with your body, mind, spirit and heart. I truly believe that movement should go beyond physical exertion and the pursuit of vanity, to a deeper core connection with your own innate ability to heal and understand not only the physical body but the spirit within. I believe and have seen evidence that through breath, movement and meditation we can create great healing and change not only in our physical bodies but throughout our lives. My motto is "Healing not Hustling”.

While offering traditional Pilates, Vinyasa and Meditation classes I tend to incorporate different movement and teaching styles in an attempt to help you connect with your body, mind, spirit & heart. I incorporate meditation techniques into my classes and like to think of them as a form of moving meditation. My intention is to leave you feeling lighter and brighter after a class.
    I am a fully qualified and experienced BASI Comprehensive Pilates Instructor and Vinyasa Yoga teacher



Why Alchemy Movement

A seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

   The dictionary definition is a perfect explanation of the concept behind Alchemy Movement. I have found in my own body and life, as well as seeing it in my clients, that there is an extraordinary transformation that takes place when one commits to a practice of self-care and exploration. It is for lack of a better word magical.

It is Alchemy.

Within you resides the power to transform, not only your physical body but also to create an internal landscape that is conducive to health and happiness. My hope and greatest wish is to help you pull back that curtain within yourself to reveal your own magic.



Ascention oils

A curated collection of individually blended essential oils that can be worn as perfume, used to create a luxurious, healing bath or placed in an oil burner to add a fragrant aroma to your home or work space. The scents are designed to stimulate and balance the Chakras and the senses.

ASCENTION ENERGY OILS are available in 7 scents blended to correspond to each of the body’s energy centers. Each scent has been created to awaken, balance and assist you in connecting with your chakras.

ASCENTION FEMPOWER OIL was specially blended to assist women during birth and in postpartum recovery, as well as an aid during PMS and period pains, and of course when you just need to feel a little Fempower!

ASCENTION LITTLE OIL OF CALM created for the little ones, it is a calming blend that is wonderful for soothing over-active minds and settling down for bed time, it is also highly effective at getting rid of the monsters in the closet and under the bed. This oil works equally well on the not so little ones and their stress levels.

For more information please contact me directly. All oils are lovingly hand made to order.
