"Yoga is a way of living that brings me closer to happiness; the body

Silvita Diaz Brown has been teaching yoga since 2005 and has been a
devoted practitioner since 2003. Silvita obtained her yoga
certification at Chicago Yoga Center under the direction of Suddha
Weixler and has studied with Manju Pattahbi Jois, Paul Grilley and many
wonderful teachers in Chicagoland. Silvita has practiced many styles of
yoga as an avid student, among them; Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Forrest,
Iyengar, Anusara, Hatha and Yin yoga. Diaz Brown has taught yoga and
movement at Roosevelt University, UIC, Yoga Now, Self-Centered Yoga, the
Copernicus Center, Bend Yoga, Pilates Chicago, York University Toronto
and The Yoga Center KY. Currently she teaches for
Chicago Yoga Center, Cheetah Gym, Core Power Yoga, The Yoga Shop
and private groups and individuals.
Silvita's yoga practice and teaching has been
influenced by the different yoga styles she has practiced and also by
her background training as a dancer and performer (Cuban Ballet, Limon
dance technique, Release dance technique, Laban and Bartenieff Movement
Fundamentals, Alexander Technique, Contact Improvisation dance,
Clowning, Butoh dance, Pilates, Tango, acting, Voice work and Acroyoga).
However, her most recent significant influence that has changed the way
she sees movement and its connection to Life itself has come from Nana
Shineflugs movement approach and its connection to yoga and dance.
Silvita's favorite yoga style is Vinyasa, because just like in dance she
gets to be creative in building her sequences through flow. Silvita's
devotion to Yoga has extended to her movement practice, art making,
teaching, and life. She continues to enrich her life through practicing
and teaching yoga.
