Sonia is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher credentialed by Yoga Alliance. She also holds a separate 200-hour certification as a registered meditation teacher as well. She has practiced various disciplines of yoga and meditation for more than 20 years.
Her introduction came during her time in the dance department at The University of Texas at Austin. Since then, Sonia has experienced the practices of yoga meditation around the world—from Nicaragua, to France, India, Mexico and The Netherlands.
Sonia’s passion is guiding beginners through their discovery of movement. A trained dancer and long-distance runner, Sonia’s gentle, alignment-based Vinyasa classes are the perfect cross-training grounds for athletes who may just be stepping into yoga classes for the first time.
Whether Sonia is teaching yin, restorative, or yoga for athletes, her classes are designed not to further aggravate the body, but instead to foster grounds for healing and opening — in the body and the mind.
She believes that through a consistent practice, students can translate the gifts discovered on the mat into living with more presence, patience, gratitude and courage off the mat.
A lover of lifelong learning, Sonia has completed additional courses in Yin, AcroYoga and Transformational Breathwork.
