Hello! My name is Silvia. Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and reading through my bio. I won’t make it too long. Just enough so you get to know me a bit better and hopefully get a good feel for who I am and why I'm here.
Over 20 years ago I had an accident that left me with a traumatic experience, I was run over by car while cycling. Overnight my life was thrown upside down. The things I used to take for granted became a distant memory and I had long and difficult recovery ahead of me.
But, as I have come to learn over the years, life always has a way to show you the path ahead and, at that difficult time, I encountered Buddhist meditation practices and Yoga. I retreated for years and took the chance to experience coming closer to ‘the whole’, the ‘emptiness and compassion’, developing the muscle of concentration, the power of intention and beautiful Tantric meditation practices.
These beautiful and sacred old lineage revelations led me to a closer relationship to the subtle body in us; the one that's in 'union' with 'the Whole', The infinite, the True Nature... But of course, It did't stop challenging life experiences from occurring and reoccurring. I managed quite well to detach from the intensity of the experience but then, life was coming back to me even louder. I developed a super skill to help my feelings go quieter and for them to find space to hide in like 'pockets' of my body. The Yoga and my releasing dance were of tremendous help to balance things out and stay healthy. Coping well through challenges. But then I had another accident.
I couldn't continue ignoring I was persuading myself to believe things were different from what I felt. OR not sure it was ok to want what I wanted. Ok but no, this strategy wasn't helping me to develope a sense of true choice and the legitimate human right of setting healthy boundaries; self-respect, self-care and self-love. After an accident with physical and emotional traumatic imprint, our nervous system's regular cycle is interrupted, and our present experience is out of order, conditioned, recalling the event's feelings and organic stress of that traumatic experience in unexpected forms. Once the lid is opened, puling the thread of all those other quietly accumulated experiences might be inevitable; the relationship with life, with others. All Interrelated.
From our developmental times to our close or intimate relationships, work and life's pursuits, dreams, projects, our own personal development -Our self worth- A life with a meaning. Nothing is written in stone but do we question -can we? - our perception in an experience that is so recorded in the body, felt in the body; The unconscious revival of our continuum. How could I prepare myself to meet what now needed to be seen, met, and organically shifted under such distressed me.
Life showed me I needed to come back closer to the body - The Soma- and the psyche.
I discovered how to integrate the Yoga practice with other somatic therapies. Techniques such as Psych-k, therapeutic trauma-informed Yoga and integrative somatic therapy can help us transform the way we see and feel ourselves and the world around us. We can unblock limiting beliefs and integrate both body and mind to achieve a more balanced and fulfilling life.
If you are suffering from trauma, challenging physical conditions, stress or simply want to discover how to live a more balanced, fulfilling and happier life I would love to help you in your journey.
In the meantime, I wish you love, peace and happiness.
