About Silva

 

Following several years of repeated lower back pain it was recommended that I strengthen my core.  I was given a one to one Yoga session as a birthday present and have been in love with the practice of Yoga ever since.

 

The improvement in my back health has been incredible; I do not suffer with any back pain now and am stronger than ever before.  My increased strength and flexibility has benefited other sports I participate in such as mountain biking, running and swimming.  I wanted others to benefit from Yoga so decided to train as a teacher.  I trained at  the Sam Rao Yoga School and started teaching in 2015. http://www.samraoyoga.com/

 

I love the flow and movement of Yoga; the connection between body, mind and breath.  I appreciate the sense of inner calm the practice brings.  I want to understand why every posture and move will benefit my body and pass this knowledge on when I teach.

 

Within each Beginner, 75 or 90 minute class, I teach basic Hatha Yoga which flows from one pose to another and allows the student time to settle in each posture, enjoy the stretch and build strength.  I also teach 60 minute Gentle Yoga classes for those who want to improve flexibility and strength in a gentle manner.

 

My training is in Hatha Yoga.  I have attended classes in Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga. 

I am currently studying for my 300 hours Post Graduate Course with Waking Minds Yoga.     https://wakingmindsyoga.co.uk/

and Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training with Yoga Nidra Network (Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD and Nirlipta Tuli)

 Postural alignment and student safety are very important to me but the most important element of all my classes is to create a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
