Teaching is a giving profession, and the most altruistic of all.
Sylvia is a consummate teacher with her students' well-being as her top priority. She is attentive to how and what her students are doing during class, even in online classes, and knows the perfect corrections or modifications to give each individual. I love how she structures each class for a complete and balanced yoga practice, as well as how she introduces new poses and builds our strength over time. The bottom line is that I always feel much better after class than before, and find I am more fit and feel better overall. Plus, her guided meditations at the end of class are fabulous!
I have been taking Sylvia’s online Yoga lessons from Tokyo. I never feel the distance though we are an ocean apart. It is like taking a class in person. She is always warm and attentive throughout the lesson. Her verbal explanation and corrections are thorough and easy to follow. Morning yoga in New York means late at night here but it is absolutely worth staying up for!
The instructor is very patient. She gives clear verbal instruction, demonstration, and some encouragement to students. The warm up, and overall flow of the movement is excellent. I enjoy practice with her
The teacher tailors the class to the participants, according to our abilities, injuries, etc. The moves in each class ensure that we are properly warmed up as we progress. Always a fun class!
Building on what the student already knows to progress and advance faster instilling a feeling of self accomplishment.
