Hello!

My name is Silvia, I’m a certified Hatha Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and Kids Yoga  instructor.

I started teaching Yoga in Ibiza in 2017, where I founded Open Shala, offering regular classes on a deck in the woods front of our house. Open Shala also gave space to workshop and events, becoming a dynamic and open platform to practice and share Yoga. During 2018 and 2019 I worked at  Policlínica Nuestra Señora del Rosario as a Pregnancy Yoga instructor. Among other collaborations in Ibiza, the Public School in Santa Gertrudis (in the framework of the project “Yoga4Kids, The Peace Warriors” by Suzanne Faith and Larah Davis); the non profit project SOS Yoga Ibiza, created to support refugees; my regular sessions at Atzaró, an agrotourism hotel in the heart of the island.

We have recently left our house, Ibiza and the deck in the woods, as life brought us to Menorca. Open Shala is moving with us, maintaining its quality of openness and the aim of sharing education.

ABOUT MY EDUCATION:

I completed my 500 hour Yoga Teacher’s Training Course in Goa, India, in 2017, at Yogalife Society (based on the medical Hatha Yoga techniques of Shri Yogendraji, Yoga Institute Mumbai). In 2018 I took my specialization in Pregnancy Yoga with the Yogaflow Prenatal teachers training course at Sansyoga, Barcelona, Spain. In 2019 I completed the Yoga4Kids teacher’s training course with Suzanne Faith Yoga, Ibiza and the 100 hour specialization on Energy Alignment with Harmony Hannigan, Nayana Yoga, ibiza.

ABOUT MY SESSIONS:

My personal practice focuses on yoga as a tool to trigger and work on creativity, and I’m often integrating this topic into my sessions.

My sessions guiding approach aims to lead students through a progressive and deep assimilation of the classic Hatha Yoga Asanas, Pranayama and meditation practices. The consolidation of classic practices is combined with dynamic variations and slow sequences accessible to beginners and intermediate students.

Besides giving precise instructions on breathing and positioning, I especially encourage an intimate and deep observation of the effects on the physical body and its main energetic centers, emphasizing the mental attitude combined to each pose and the benefits on a physical, mental and spiritual level.

I speak Spanish, English, and Italian

  1. Sylvia is a wonderful yoga teacher with a very nice voice, which is important to me, to guide you easily into the guided meditation and the asana’s.
    I had not done any yoga in over 20 years but Sylvia made me connect with yoga again. I always loved her classes and it is such a pity she is leaving Ibiza to go to Menorca.
    Thank you so much for all the private classes that I got from you early mornings with the sun coming up. It was very special and meant a lot to me!!
    Once again, thank you and I will miss you!
    Good luck with everything and I hope to see you again!!!

  2. I enjoyed having pregnancy yoga classes with Silvia. She has a nice and calm energy and gives her lessons with a lot of love and attention. In the lasts months of my pregnancy I went a few times a week to her classes. She was a big support and teached me how to have confidence in my body, how to connect with my baby and preparing me for giving birth. I have known Silvia as a very gentle and professional yoga teacher with a lot of knowledge about pregnancy and childbirth.
