Thurs Fusion Yoga 7:15 - 8:30 pm
Don Silva, RYT
Don Silva is a native of California with strong ties to the Hawaiian Islands. He has spent the last 17 years trying to become an Idaho native. Yoga has been a long strange trip for Don – with over 25 years in the high tech industry exercise has been a refuge from the stress. Don sought out yoga as a means of bringing increased flexibility to his body and mind. What he discovered after his very first yoga class was a state of being he calls the “yoga buzz” It was a state of being where his body and mind came together filled with peace and ease. He was hooked.
Don has studied many styles of yoga – Bikram, Ashtanga, Anusara, Vinyasa, Power and Bikyasa yoga. He has studied with many master teachers to improve his practice and teaching. Over the years he has concentrated on the teachings of D’ana Baptiste and Bryan Kest in the Power Yoga linage. In December 2006 Don completed a 550+ hour teacher training to become a certified instructor through the D’ana Baptiste Centered City Yoga Certification program (InBody Academy) in Salt Lake City, Utah.
He has been teaching yoga throughout the Treasure Valley for over 6 years. All ways looking to expand his knowledge of yoga, he is currently enrolled in Debbi Murphy’s Shanti Yoga School, in the hopes of giving more to his students and help them find their path through the art of yoga. His teaching style is direct yet playful, infused with humor, working on not just the body but the mind and spirit as well, helping his students find their place in the postures.
Don believes that Yoga is fun…so smile, laugh, breathe and know all is coming! Not a bad deal huh? Don is honored to be teaching at Sage Yoga & Wellness and is looking forward to seeing you in class. Jah!
