Silvia is a registered expressive arts therapist who uses art, writing, and movement to enable people to dive deeply into themselves and discover and strengthen their own inner resources. Her experience in this field plus a lifelong practice of dance, yoga, and Tai Chi, has given her tremendous body awareness and in-depth knowledge of the mind-body unity. In 2015, she formally became a yoga and meditation teacher after completing her training at Mount Madonna Center. One of the many wonderful gifts she received in her training was an even deeper connection to meditation and conscious breathing (pranayama), which she gently connects during her classes. She is also a Reiki master, a Pre-post Natal Yoga teacher, has had training in Trauma Sensitive Yoga and more. She has shared her passion with veterans, internal refugees, people in custody, kids and teens, amongst other groups. For the past few years she has been facilitating sessions with the Prison Yoga Project. In her meditation classes her focus is to facilitate an experience where people breathe with deep awareness and connect with their inner stillness, peace and strength.
