Guest Yoga Teacher Silvia Eriksson

Silvia Eriksson

Silvia Eriksson is originally from a small town in Switzerland, and at a young age moved to Copenhagen, Denmark where she lived most of her life until moving to Montezuma, Costa Rica in 2009. She fell in love with Montezuma and its healing energy and pura vida style, and is now happily married and living in Montezuma full time. Silvia at Anamaya Resort

Her transition between life styles and career choices all began with an ever-growing relationship with Yoga around 8 years ago back in Copenhagen where she was working in Hospitality at the time. Going through several physical problems as results of accidents, mainly back and postural issues, she found that yoga was the answer. Practicing yoga continues to heal and contribute to her life in every way.

Silvia has always been an advocate of eating healthy and chemical free food and using non-toxic skin care. This focus continues to guide her career and life in many ways, as she is also a trained esthetician specializing in natural skin care. She came across Anamaya in its infancy phase and was fortunate to be offered a position in the spa (where she still works) and guest services. She then completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Anamaya with Jackie Chiodo. Currently she also teaches Vinyasa/Hatha Flow at the Montezuma Yoga studio with Dagmar Spremberg. Another one of her passions, as discovered in further educational workshops and courses, is Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga which she is eager to share with you during this week, along with working with her dear friends Kara Sparkman and Alex Nikolova in their very special arts!
