Yoga is an ancient yet sophisticated system of self-development. The word “yoga” derives from the Sanskrit root meaning no bind/ join, or yoke and conveys the sense of union or communion. So literally, is a method for “yoking” body, mind and spirit into harmonious wholeness.

Yoga with Silvia is based on the classical Yoga. The classical Yoga was first described as a systematic approach to Self-realization by Maharishi Patanjali about 200 B.C. His classical text, the “Yoga Sutras”, describes the nature of the mind and ways to control its restlessness.   (Hatha Yoga postures and the teachings of Yoga Sutras).


·         Increased flexibility
·         Improved muscle tone
·         Reduction in heart rate, ventilation, and muscle tension
·         Increased blood flow to the extremities
·         Pain management
·         Relief of anxiety, stress/ depression
·         Enhanced self-awareness
·         Emotional tranquility


Yoga uses conscious breaching and body awareness to, as B.K.S. lyengar puts it, “infuse our physical movements and postures with intelligence.” Outward perception and inner reflection interact and inform each other within the postures “interweaving all the threads and fibers of our being” as the body, mind and spirit learn to work together.


The asanas or postures are designed to realign and balance our neuromuscular system and to direct energy in beneficial ways. But mindfulness and effort are more important to this process than formal correctness. The ideal forms lend focus and direction to our strivings as we “grow into” postures from within. The trick is to gently push against limits without exceeding them, scanning our body with full awareness, making small adjustments, finding a place of balance and ease within each posture.


Yogic transformation takes time. It cannot be forced or rushed. There are no shortcuts, cheats or magic bullets. Attempting to push past your limits puts current progress at risk: a muscle or ligament strain could set you back days or even weeks. Pain is information. Be aware of what your body is telling you. Mild discomfort or a subtle, bone-deep ache is good: it means the movements and postures are working. Stabbing pains or sharp burning sensations are danger sign and indicating that you’ve gone too far or too fast.


Integrative Yoga Therapy looks at the individual as a whole person: Body – Mind – Spirit.

Present and past; emotions and intellect

Using breath and stretching movement (yoga) to release the body’s energetic pattern Integrative Yoga Therapy seeks to enable clients to live fully in their body.

How do you live fully in one body? Let’s say: Meditation is an experiential expression of a unity that already exists. If there were no polarity there would be nothing but meditation.

  • Unity = relaxation.
  • Separation = stress
  • To define stress – chronically separation must be present

Yoga therapy is based on the five koshas, or levels of being. By recognizing separation in individuals or groups at the level of the

  • physical body
  • energetic body
  • psycho-emotional body
  • wisdom  body
  • bliss body

A yoga therapist can facilitate wellness at all levels by designing a program with appropriate yogic techniques.

Keeping the five Koshas, or levels of being in mind, we realize that at the same time as being physical beings, we are also mental, emotional and spiritual entities. We are multi-dimensional; none of these aspects can be ignored.

From the holistic viewpoint no one thing is independent of another. An imbalance in any one of the five Koshas can filter through to manifest symptoms in any of the others. When there are mental, emotional or pranic imbalances, the stress will tend to appear on the weakest organ of the physical body.

Silvia’s yoga therapy sessions are as followed

A one on one yoga therapy session is 1 hr long and  usually multiple session. These session are personalised to your need may it be physical, energetic or spiritual. 

It is non-invasive, multimodal, self-care oriented and has various  combinations of: body awareness, physical exercises, breathing exercises, relaxation exercises, guided imagery , chakra balance,  visualization, meditation,  yogasage, somatic, body mapping and listening.

Since each person is unique, the modalities used will vary somewhat depending upon individual needs and receptiveness.

We only assist in Adjustment to prevent injuries and as far as you are comfortable (no pain). When you are practicing postures remember there are no goals to obtain no technique to perfect and always listen to the wisdom of your body and let that be your true teacher. Always allow yourself to come out of the posture when your body wants to, regardless of my instruction and feel free to change any movement to fit your needs. There should be no forcing or straining. Be aware of your body’s limitations, and know that regardless of your strength and flexibility if you focus a 100 % on what you are doing you will receive a 100% of the benefit.  It is my goal to guide you and help you find your inner core.
