When a student comes to the mat, there’s an implied contract they make with you as teacher. Staying safe, honoring one’s self, and practicing ahimsa (non-harming) is of primary importance.

Hi love, I’m Silvia!
I’m a specialist in starting over.
Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.
Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.
Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
