SiLiKa grew up in Montreal and had a strong passion to be a healer. She studied 5 years as a special aids worker and social worker. But plans quickly changed when she discovered healing through deep stretching. She pursued her passion endlessly and became a self taught contortionist and never turned back.
SiLika is now a contortionist, acrobat, and dancer of Toronto and Montreal. SiLiKa discovered healing through contortion combined with meditation. The process began while sitting in contorted postures for three hours daily over the course of six months. As her techniques evolved, SiLika began infusing breath work into her repertoire to promote a relaxed state which ultimately lead to healing. SiLiKa weaves various forms of tribal dance and contortion that resonate with her unique path to self-liberation. She now has the privilege to be training with Canada's Got Talent's top contender, Aygul Memet, and includes skilled techniques used in traditional Mongolian practices.

Influences & Inspiration
My work is inspired by the traditional Mongolian Techniques of Contortion. I have been personally inspired by my mentor Aygul Memet, Canada's Got Talents top contender, who trained at the Mongolian Circus school for 8 years of her life and performed all over the world. I will be travelling to the International Mongolian School of Contortion to incorporate more of their traditions and bring back a piece of their culture to share with the world.
