In 2002, Silvi moved to Canada, in search of her purpose in life. She found it here in Vancouver, which is now home for her. A few years ago she found herself unhappy with her weight. She found her solution when she became a certified BCRPA Group Fitness Instructor. She started teaching Cardio-kickboxing, Bootcamp and Indoor Cycling. However, music was always a priority in her classes. Silvi first heard of Zumba® in Mexico back in 2008 , but had not try it. Silvi fell in love with Zumba® the moment her first class began, and it has changed her life. She found the best of two worlds, fitness and dance.

Silvi is full of energy. She believes in feeling the rhythm, and the soul of the music. For her this is the key what makes an amazing Zumba® experience.
