Silvio ist schon früh durch seine Mutter mit Yoga in Kontakt getreten. 2002 führte Paramapadma Dhiranandaji ihn in die Technik des Kriya-Yoga, eine alte Meditationsform, ein und bildete ihn zu einem Ashtanga Yogalehrer mit Hatha Yoga Grundsätzen aus. Kurze Zeit später wurde ihm ebenfalls von Dhiranandaji der Titel Yogacharya verliehen. Seither eröffnet Silvio Schülern den Weg zum Kriya-Yoga, um die Welten Beruf und Familie vereinen zu können. Er ist auch zertifizierter Heilmasseur, was seinen Unterricht eine spezielle Note gibt.

The Home of Silence was my first yoga retreat – and since then I know for sure that many further retreats will follow. In particular, I will return to the Home of Silence, because the intimacy and tranquillity of the lodges which are located in the midst of a beautiful forest is incomparable. Silvio is a wonderful host and led us with a lot of attention through yoga and meditation practice. The originality of the country, its nature and its extremely friendly residents also contributed to me calming down at this place. And yet, this vacation would not have been so wonderful without the meals prepared by cook Ulli who spoilt the hungry guests after a long day filled with numerous experiences!

We visited the newly opened Home of Silence lodge for the first time in summer 2016, and we were thrilled. Nowadays many yoga retreats have the character of a club vacation. People can sign up for group excursions and sports etc. The only thing missing in this kind of vacation is the animator. However, the Home of Silence is very down-to-earth and original; it is a genuine refuge for those who would like to come to rest with the help of yoga, meditation and nature. The lodges (we stayed in one the tents which are very beautiful!) are equipped in a charming way and are surrounded by forests. The yoga classes were very helpful for me and my wife.
