I define my work as a self-awakening process through art exposure. I work with actors and non-actors. I guide my students to find an alignment between their personal truth connected to their character so the professional is able to relieve emotional conflicts and bring balance to their lives. I work intensely with self-knowledge and together we find a new and real meaning to truthfully live any role or face any given moment, in stage but also and most important, in life. We also improve the students’ ability to listen and accept whatever is thrown their way by reacting naturally and spontaneously so they build real connections with their audience or whoever they relate with.
We build a safe environment, free of judgment. It’s a place where impulses can be explored, where actors can act and react freely, and naturally gage their creative level. Here you will find how to free yourself and your acting, you will dive into the unknown of the self and figure out how to be fully, authentically available to your scene partners and script. A person who’s self confident, who doesn’t focus on him/herself but instead put all attention into the other and into the surroundings builds connections on and off stage. This ability can change one’s way of living and by doing so, one can be not only a better actor but most importantly, a better person.
I don't even like to call this "my job". Through this approach I fullfill my mission as a person. I was born to pass this knowledge along. It allows me to empower people, unlock potential and build confidence all at once. I also to build relationships with people from different backgrounds for life. This is my artistic family, a transformational movement in the performing arts that serves everyone. I love the fact that my sessions also attract non actors.
Yvia has a way of making you feel so comfortable and I really enjoy working with her. I am learning so much about acting and about myself. It has been a really wonderful experience. I think the world of Yvia.
