Sonia’s journey began in 2003 when she went to a Hatha yoga class in a gym in South London. She loved the way yoga made her feel – not only physically, slowly feeling her body become stronger and more flexible, but also mentally. The integration of body, connecting breath with fluid movement, engaged her mind completely like no other form of exercise. Since then Sonia has practiced many different styles but is inherently drawn to the powerful flow and moving meditation that Vinyasa offers.
Sonia has over 500 hours of yoga teacher training under the guidance of internationally renowned teachers including Maty Ezraty, Simon Park, Noelle Connolly, Meghan Currie and Melanie McLaughlin. Sonia goal is to live yoga daily, both on and off the mat - an ever evolving journey! Teaching allows her to share her passion for yoga and create a space free of judgement, to nourish and restore the physical and emotional body.
Sonia is also a trauma sensitive yoga teacher and a counselling student. Her experience teaching trauma sensitive yoga informs her teaching style and she often incorporates mindfulness and grounding breath work to cultivate a deeper sense of connection to the body. Her classes feature creative flowing sequences that give you the space to feel each asana and surrender to stillness.
