Silke's Biography

Silke has been teaching yoga since 2000, her primary teacher being Rod Stryker/ ParaYoga®. Her studies also include yoga therapy with Doug Keller and pranic healing/mediation with Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati. Sanskrit for Yogis and Jyotisha/Vedic Astrology with Dr. Katyayani Poole, and currently Mantra Theory with Douglas Brooks.

As a Para Yoga-inspired teacher, Silke draws from Tantra and classical Yoga as the source for her teaching. Through a systematic and light-hearted approach, Silke's aim is to have students EXPERIENCE the great wisdom of the sages -- that to unlock and understand the great creative force of the universe, you need to look no further than your own body and mind. The ultimate goal is for each student to live compassionately, joyfully, fearlessly -- to thrive wholly in every aspect of their lives and in doing so, become the model for others to do the same.
