 Silvana, a Guatemalan with Italian heritage, has been teaching at Shakti for over three years. She views yoga as a journey toward inner peace and well-being, focusing on meditation and pranayama with a nervous-system informed approach to nurture the body and emphasize the breath as a bridge to the mind-body connection. Her classes prioritize meditation and pranayama practices, with a blend of playfulness and challenge to create a mindful experience. In every interaction, her intention is to share a piece of her heart, hopefully leaving you inspired, grateful, and reconnected with your gentle living and inner knowledge.

About Antigua

Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes in southern Guatemala. The city’s cobbled 9×9 block streets are slow paced, easy-to-navigate with cafes, farm-to-table restaurants, artisan markets, and historical sites located throughout. It’s renowned for its colorful Spanish colonial buildings, this beautiful and magical city has almost five hundred years of history, with a privileged all-year-long climate. If you visit Guatemala during February and March for our training, you can expect warm, dry days, with little to no rainfall. Temperatures average in the high 70s during this time.  

About Shakti-Shala
