My private yoga classes with Silvia are the highlight of my week. When I started out with her, I was experiencing trouble with acid reflux, general stomach upset, and grounding. Together, we did some intense grounding and cooling practices that addressed my problems and it took only a couple of sessions to start feeling better.
Silvia’s emphasis is on discovering harmony of body, mind & soul through movement, breath, and stillness. She introduced me to aspects of yoga I hadn’t experienced before. Being a musician and singer myself, I particularly enjoyed the Hummingbee Breath, called Brahmari Pranayama in Sanskrit.
Although I haven’t had a chance to experience it yet, Silvia introduced me to Kirtan Yoga, a call-and-response style song or chant, set to music wherein multiple singers recite or describe a legend, or discuss spiritual ideas. It would be so much fun to try this out with a group of friends.
Yoga Nidra (guided meditation) was another style of yoga that we touched upon. As you can read, Silvia opened a door to many directions for me, and I am looking forward to more sessions with her in the future. I had taken yoga classes before but never in a private setting, and can highly recommend them for everyone. After each session, I feel relaxed and connected to the earth once more, and looking forward to my next session with her.
