WHAT INSPIRES

My heart

My healing work began as a licensed Craniosacral- and Physiotherapist and certified Tantra and Ashtanga Yoga teacher in 1997. When I lived in Vienna I worked for over a decade at a Health and Dance Club and became an enthusiastic practitioner of all forms of Dance and Yoga. In 2002 I brought my deep love for embodied movement to the South of Spain. I have since then worked with thousands of individual clients as well as held space for 25 years on the yoga and dancefloor. My strength is to guide group energy through an experience with the Sacred, using rituals to build faith, a sense of interconnectedness and personal empowerment. I am here to create a safe and loving space for you to deepen your connection to the Divine.

BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE WILD AND FREE

Throughout my studies across the world, many different cultures and Shamanic traditions inspire me towards a deep reverence for nature. I feel a call to rediscover and protect the wild inside of us.

Something new can be created when we leave our comfort zone and dive into the unknown. I will always encourage you to follow the free pulsation of your breath, so your movement naturally expands and becomes less linear, but more explorative. All movement thrives on our openness and curiosity about what is possible. When practicing this during yoga, we will flow with more ease and spontaneity and empower our somatic intelligence. This refines our ability to sense, explore and experience the less known aspects of ourself. Let’s work together to become the most free and inspired version of our wildest dreams!

THE MAGIC EACH UNIQUE BODY HOLDS

Our constantly changing circumstances of body, mind and heart require a compassionate teaching style which goes beyond intelligent alignment. My yoga practice stimulates self enquiry and intuition. I see magic happening when we show up authentically to explore our uniqueness. When we tap into the wisdom of ancient memories, recalling desired emotional states in certain asanas, we consciously use the creative force of our limitless mind. A revolutionary approach to get out of a shape based yoga practice into the vast field of spirit.

Through a series of significant and life threatening health challenges, my teaching evolved towards a more curious and receptive style. I discovered the creative healing power of my mind when confronted with cancer and a paralyzed leg. I am in awe that after I underwent a full hip replacement I regained total flexibility through yoga. I am confident that everything I experienced helps me to better guide you through any challenges you are facing.

THE POWER OF RITUAL

Everywhere I go, I see a universal thirst for the sacred, for meaning, hope and purpose. Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going back to our roots is like coming home. In bringing back ancient rituals, we honour what gives us life, what feeds us in this existence as a spiritual human being. Rituals invite us to tune in to our inner-guidance and to take action from a place of “in-spiration” rather than habit. They evoke deep, heartfelt emotions, like gratitude, and help us to tune in to a high vibrational field of energy that is even more powerful if shared between many and over an extended period of time. To share these sacred moments with others during my retreats or in ceremonies is a powerful experience, builds a sense of community, of wonder and infinite respect. In the last decade I have worked with various indigenous traditions and have brought this inspiration into all that I am doing. With great respect and love I facilitate regular sacred traditional Cacao Ceremonies in the South of Spain.

MY INSPIRATIONS

I am so grateful to my grandparents who were my first spiritual inspiration. I bow to all the free spirits and dedicated teachers who crossed my path and the long lineage of yogis, mystics and shamans who kept these rich traditions alive. I acknowledge my deepest influences including:

Ashtanga, Prana Flow, Anusara & Sri Daiva, Kundalini, Dance and Movement therapy, Qi Gong, Non-dualistic tantric philosophy, Meditation, Transpersonal spiritual and personal inquiry, Shamanism, Transformative Breathwork, Quantum Science, Buddhism, Poetry and Music, Music, Music…

I feel blessed to be part of the awakening of consciousness. Seeing the connection, healing and growth of those that I work with continually inspires me.

WORK WITH ME

ARE YOU READY TO

Deepen your journey?

“After studying Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Yoga with a brilliant master who saved my life from near death in the USA, I did not think it was possible to find another who could take his place in continuing my learning and healing through these arts. When I found Silvia in Tarifa, it became clear that I was wrong. Silvia has an extraordinary ability to transmit every aspect of yoga. Her deep understanding and knowledge of anatomy, her sensitivity to body differences from her physiotherapy training, her love for music and dance transmitted in the flow of her classes, and her intuitive powers which connect one immediately to a higher spiritual plane – all these qualities coupled with her deep love for people and commitment to learning, growing and serving others, are all reasons that I am so truly grateful to have walked into her class 15 years ago. She has continued to surprise and delight, challenge and transform me in each and every class I do with her. A true gift of a human and teacher on our planet.”
