Absolutely the BEST yoga teacher ever!
I have been practicing yoga since 1991 and have worked with dozens of yoga teachers and have known many amazing ones. But none like Silvia.
Over a year and a half ago I had been experiencing debilitating neck and shoulder pain along with constant migraines. I had allowed myself to get out of shape and was also going through menopause. I was not sleeping at night and I became desperate.
I know how to do yoga on my own, but decided that I should try to work with someone who could help me develop a new practice. Luckily I found Silvia. She was very patient and gentle, guiding me through a long period when I was not able to do much physically, and emotionally I was pretty negative.
She combined many types of yoga along with a deep knowledge of how the body works (musculature, ligaments, bones) to develop a practice that is aligned to the needs and limitations of my aging body. Using breathing, relaxation, stretching and strengthening – we slowly and steadily started undoing years of accumulated tension and weakness.
Some days I could barely do anything, so the practice would focus on breathing and relaxation techniques. Other days I was feeling stronger and we would work on particular groups of muscles to strengthen and elongate. She constantly monitored how I was doing to make sure that I did not injure myself.
Now I feel great. Better than I have in over a decade. When I started with Silvia, I was convinced that I could never feel this good again. I absolutely cannot recommend Silvia more highly. She has had a profoundly positive impact on my life and well-being.
