Sonia Karas

Hi! My name is Sonia, and I am so excited to practice yoga with you. After a few years of dedicated practice, in 2015 I pursued my love of asana and completed my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at Bhakti Barn in New Jersey. I am deeply grateful for the wisdom of my beloved teachers, Betsy Davis and Lauren Magarelli. It is with a great sense of joy that I carry the teachings from my mentors in my practice and my life. Born from this lineage, my teaching style is a playful combination of Bhakti- mantra, mythology, and devotion, and flowing vinyasa with an emphasis on sequencing. Yoga history and philosophy inform our practice together, rooting our movement in the wisdom of the parampara.

I am passionate about the intersection of yoga and personal healing, and how ancient practice and modern quantum theory connect. My work as an energetic healer is centered on personal liberation and expansion. In 2018 I created the Yin & Reiki group healing to merge these practices and create an opportunity for communal healing.

My work is truly a blending of the many gifts of wisdom offered to me by generous teachers, which includes:

-International Death Doula Training with Ram Dass and Rev. Bodhi Be

-Yoga Nidra, The Bhagavad Gita, and Supreme Release Yoga with Kaya Mindlin

-Bhakti and Vinyasa studies with Raghunath

-Yoga Philosophy with Edwin Bryant

– Reiki Mastership, Karuna Ki Master Level, and 13th Octave LaHoChi Mastership with my dear friend Shannon O’Neill Loyola

-and many more!
