Silvia Suarez

 

Silvia is passionate about the relationships between mind and body, emotions and movement. Throughout her life, she has deeply explored how the body, movement and creativity can work together as a pathway for healing. In her classes at Holistic Movement Center, Silvia focuses on guiding students on an inner journey through their bodies in which breath is the vehicle for awareness. As owner of the Holistic Movement Center, Silvia seeks to create a community resource for learning, collaboration, and meaningful individual and collective growth. 


Prior to her work at Holistic Movement Center, Silvia provided guidance and therapy to internal refugees, teachers and students in her native Colombia and in the U.S.  As part of this work, she facilitated groups in which women who had survived personal and community violence found their voices, and supported young people dealing with grief and trauma. By using arts and movement for healing and empowerment, Silvia strives to assist individuals and communities in their efforts to connect to and fully realize their own power.


Silvia’s enthusiasm for life, and her desire to create a better world for everyone, permeates everything she does.  Most recently, Silvia completed her 200hour Yoga Teacher Training in Mount Madonna Center. Prior to that training, Silvia received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Universidad Nacional de Colombia and a Masters of Arts degree in Expressive Arts and Social Change from European Graduate School. She has received additional training in movement-based expressive arts therapy and dance.
