Janet SilvaWelcome to Silver Lotus Yoga

Welcome to Silver Lotus Yoga @Woodside.   My name is Janet Silva and I offer yoga classes in a yoga studio in my home in the Woodside section of Silver Spring, Maryland.  I teach hatha yoga which is the practice of physical poses and breathing techniques to achieve better health and concentration. 

My classes are small and I strive to create a sense of community and well being among the participants.  The classes are for students at levels 1 and 2.  New students to yoga are welcome.  I focus on poses to increase strength and flexibility, improve posture and balance, and I teach good alignment and body awareness so you are safe wherever and whenever you practice. 

I am a Svadyhaya certified teacher at the 200 hour level, and I bring to my classes the principles I learned from this teaching method -  the adaptation of yoga postures to meet the student’s needs and safety.  I welcome people of all sizes, shapes and level of fitness regardless of color, ethnic background, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

I teach regularly scheduled classes each week, ad hoc special emphasis classes and private lessons.  I am also available to teach classes to pre-formed groups seeking a yoga teacher and one-time special events and occasions. 

I hope you find this website helpful. I wish you ease and well being.
