“I have worked with Silvija for years. She is an excellent teacher, co-facilitator, friend, mother and human being. She embodies the five rhythms in a deep and profound way. She will take you all the way.”  Jonathan Horan, Dancing Bear, Keeper of the Flame, 5Rhythms Creative Director, The Moving Center New York Director


“Silvija´s teaching is both grounded and spiritual. Light and deep at the same time. Powerful. Highly recommended.”   Stefan, dancer


“I cannot recommend Silvija enough. Silvija is a senior teacher and leads from a place of huge heart and deep-rooted “groundedness”. She is also F%^&ing Funny!!!! Karen Ritscher, 5Rhythms teacher


“Thank you for your clarity, enthusiasm and also your curiosity and care – I have an experience of a human kindness in you which is incalculable in its worth – yes very precious.  It’s like you cherish each person.”  Nancy Harrison, 5Rhythms teacher


“I try not to have favourite 5Rhythms teachers, but I fail! Silvija is one of my favourite 5Rhythms teachers. The clarity of glass, the wild fluidity of a whirlpool, the determined strength of an oak tree and the compassion of a very human heart – wrapped up with humour and honesty. I love that I can call her a colleague and a friend. ”  Ben Deutsch, 5Rhythms teacher


“Silvija’s passion for 5Rhythms is contagious!”  Karen Chapman, 5Rhythms teacher


” Silvija offers a solid and no-drama space for us to become fluid and learn how to move, with our own two feet, thru our emotions. She offers a very well crafted opportunity for us to connect to our hearts and let them speak, whisper, shout and sing. Deep gratitude!”
Cecile Klefstad, 5Rhythms teacher


“Silvija’a teaching is warm and clear, a fine balance of strong clarity and tender vulnerability. She is respectful of the vulnerability of the human heart, while standing strong in her commitment to do what is needed. I felt that we were on a journey together and  together we would face the risks of letting the heart be.”    Karen Rose Ramsey, 5Rhythms teacher


“Silvija embodies 5Rhythms in the most natural, humbling and human way. Her life is her inspiration for the dance floor and in that way her teaching goes straight to the heart. I wish I was her neighbour and could enjoy her teaching, her dance, her wisdom and humor more often. Recommended!”    Pauline van Hezik, 5Rhythms teacher


“I love Silvija´s unique creative approach to the rhythms: her evocative images and symbols take my body straight to the essence of each rhythm, not giving my head the time to even start thinking about which rhythm we are in and whether i am “doing it right” …so the rest of me can just easily follow … simple yet deep! she really manages to share the experience of the rhythms, so there is not much explaining needed. I find it very inspiring that every workshop is like a total work of art, including installation, music, teaching, dancing, experiences from daily life, and we are all part of it. Also I appreciate her authenticity and the fact that she shares and shows the path she is on, reminding me that teaching is also learning and motivating me to keep dancing through the challenges of daily life.”   Stefania Kregel, 5Rhythms teacher


“Silvija’s way of teaching? Strong and soft, passionate and gentle, wise and tactful, straight and humble, modern and ancient. She knows most of the places, you were. She’s a woman with all of the amazing dark and soft feminine energies, what can you seduce for the rhythms. She’s a mother who accepts you as you are. She is a warrior healer, who helps you facing with your shadows without a judgement, and helps to break through them. She is a teacher, who shows the path, but let you to be free. Dancing with her guiding, you can go to your edges safe. She is a midwife, who helps you to be born in your real self.”  Zsuzsanna Kiss, 5Rhythms Teacher


” Silvija has the rare perfect balance of masculine and feminine energies in her presence that render her teaching powerfully solid and clear as well as nourishingly rich. She weaves her magic with her words, ever so full of colourful analogies that ground the work in unforgettable beautiful verbal expressions… These words that impart humour’s lightness as well as lifetimes of deep wisdom. Most importantly, her knowledge, full presence, energy and movement inspire any body to fall in love with the 5Rhythms practise from the first encounter. She is truly a master!” 

Lina Nahhas, 5 Rhythms Teacher


“I experience Silvija as someone vital, honest and present. The way she speaks and teaches, she is one with what is. This brings everyone to the here and now with passion and compassion. Her humor and respect at the same time are contagious to the group and make her work both deep and transformational.”  Milena Nenkova, Director of Essence Foundation, Bulgaria
