MY TEACHING INTENTION AND HOW I TEACH
My classes are upbeat and fun, serious and informative, supportive and authentic. I use my own intuition along with people's questions, past injuries, and demonstrations to deepen the learning process. I hope that when students leave class, they are inspired to be good to themselves and thereby kinder to others.
I am deeply honored to serve my students with the intention that while connected to their breath, they might feel each pose with an open heart and a quiet mind. Yoga then becomes a means to explore oneself more deeply in order to better face life’s challenges; many find that beauty and strength naturally emerge as byproducts.
While in the corporate world, I worked for both Inc 500 and Fortune 500 companies as Director of Human Resources, specializing in Training & Development. This parlayed well into creating a Yoga Teacher Training program, workshops, life-coaching and teaching yoga full-time. I bring inspiration, enthusiasm and playfulness into each class through creative, flowing sequencing and a delightful combination of yoga philosophy and healthy physical alignment. Students often tell me I use the most inspiring music, as they are treated to a fresh, unique playlist of motivating music every class!
I would describe myself as a super gentle, sensitive Cancer with a Pitta/Vata nature. My favorite healing stones are Tigers Eye and Citrine and the Panther is my Totem. This naturally leads me to help others navigate the unknown and face their own fears. When not teaching or practicing yoga, I enjoy watching funny action movies, moving to cool grooves or cooking for loved ones. I like hanging out, soaking in the sun, planning new adventures and sipping a cold Corona with my friends. Nature and the relationship of human spirit are my greatest teachers!
Silvia is truly one of a kind. She lives, breaths, and exudes yoga with every step and beat of her heart. She is an extremely kind, gentle soul who holds so much fire and passion for life. Her knowledge base of not just the physical practice of yoga, but all of it’s intertwining philosophies is astounding. I feel truly blessed to be a student under her & find myself transforming under her guidance every day. - Katy
Silvia's yoga classes are so much more than amazing vinyasa yoga...Life lessons are learned here, acceptance, love and community created ...she is by far one of the most well prepared "Life Teachers" I have ever had the opportunity to meet and work with...walking out of her classes you feel better physically, emotionally and Spiritually...She said something the other day in class; there are two reasons to do yoga to "remember to remember" and to "celebrate". Silvia cultivates in her students the ability to remember the essence of who they are as well as what they are capable of becoming. She celebrates and honors each person in attendance. Living her life with love and generosity, she is an inspiration to everyone she meets. She truly LIVES her yoga inside and outside of the studio with great LOVE. - Vicki
Silvia reaches horizons of yoga that have yet to be touched by the ordinary teacher. What sets her apart is her devotion to building community and a steadfast commitment to giving karma yoga visibility in the world. I know Silvia to graciously offer her services as a yoga instructor with full heart to give movement to a cause, and to amplify a connection between others for a greater purpose through yoga. Silvia is compassionate, and it comes forth in her presence- the greatest gift an educator can give, is the gift of self-reflection and with Silvia, we learn to reach outward in the world by first inquiring within. - Hannah
Silvia will change your life one word at a time. Her classes are ALWAYS different, filled with loving commentary and powerful music. If you want to live a happier life, check her out! - J
To know that there’s someone else out there who feels it’s okay to just breath gives me a sigh of relief, literally. It's good to know to know I can just BE, in this world of constantly striving for bigger and better; that it’s okay to simply breathe and not worry about doing it all. You truly are an inspiration. - Emily
I have yet to find a more inspiring, more uplifting teacher than Silvia. Not only does she inspire and change lives on the mat, but she takes her yoga with her outside of the yoga studio as well, and continues to make the world a better place. - Jacob
For so many years as your student, you taught me that if you manifest the life you want - you will find it - not a day goes by that I don't think of this and find overwhelming gratitude - for what I get to do everyday. And as these amazing opportunities continue to present themselves I am reminded that it is because I have made it happen. Thank you! Eternally grateful!! -Deb
Silvia’s classes will leave you inspired to live your best life and be your best self. Highly recommend checking her out if you’re interested in getting in shape physically and/or mentally! - Alysha
