Sonia started Yoga at 14. Since then she has enjoyed practicing a wide range of traditional and contemporary styles. In her younger years Iyengar Yoga was her great love. Now in her 50’s Sonia appreciates Scaravelli-inspired Yoga, Restorative Yoga and the playful free-style method as taught by David Sye.
Sonia has especially found home in the therapeutic approach of Anubhava Yoga. She loves the empowering self-respecting nature of the practices which enable people understand how to help themselves. Further Sonia appreciates how Anubhava gives practitioners a distinct experience of themselves beyond the physical.
Having worked with a wide range of complementary therapies (Reflexology, Kinesiology, Healing, Counselling, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy) for over 20 years, Sonia has extensive experience of the relationship between the mind, body and spirit. With this she is able to help Yoga students get to grips with the breadth and depth of this ancient science. Years of practicing Yoga, Meditation and Tai Chi has meant that she can open to be guided by life-force energy. Sonia shares her understanding of the subtle aspects of our being in an accessible, down to earth way.
By completing 4 years of training Sonia qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga. She is currently undertaking further certification in Experiential Yoga Therapy. Sonia works in York teaching classes and giving private one to one sessions. She also delivers workshops around the UK and leads retreats. Sonia is committed to helping make Yoga widely accessible. She is at her happiest outdoors in Nature or dancing her socks off.
