Hi! I'm Brisa (Bree-za / she, her, hers). I am a mama, wife, world traveler and lover of people. I am a passionate yoga practitioner, a skillful yoga teacher, a Vision & Goals coach and the founder of Yoga for a Cause Movement. My genius zone is when I am deep into adventure, connecting with our beautiful world and humans all around, and empowering others through the gift of yoga and coaching. I combine my love for yoga, people, and traveling the world through my Empowered yoga retreats.
There is something Brisa cannot tell you about herself... but I can. Let me explain. A lot of people throw around the word authentic these days, but few embody it. Brisa Silvestre embodies authenticity. No pretense, no self-consciousness, no false hype just pure love and acceptance. She doesn't know it; she is just busy being Brisa: mom, wife, friend yoga teacher, humble, funny, irreverent.
As a psychotherapist for over 30 years, in the confidential confines of the therapy room, I can tell you what most people tell me they hunger for. More than anything else, they want for someone to see them, truly see them beneath all the pretense and trying, and accept them. Few have that to give. If you have had the good fortune of being in Brisa's healing presence you have felt seen, understood, and accepted for who you are. This is a rare gift- one which Brisa possesses and gives away without hesitation. She has no idea how special she is. I have no doubt, a week in under Brisa's healing touch and loving presence you will come away transformed- a better version of yourself. Nothing less is possible.
