Teacher Description

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 of Laughing Lotus. It is with a great sense of joy that I carry the teachings from my mentors in my practice and my life. I’ve also had the great privilege to study Hindu Philosophy from Prof. Edwin Bryant, Bhakti and Vinyasa from Raghunath, The Bhagavad Gita from Laksmi Nrsimha Das, and many others. 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. My hope for every class is to simply guide you to move and be moved.

In 2015 I also received my Reiki 1 & 2 Attunements, and in 2017 my Reiki Mastership with the wonderful Shannon O’Neill Loyola. Most recently I completed the International Death Doula Training in Maui- an intensive course for those wishing to be of service to people and their families at the end of life. I was so fortunate to study under some of my heroes- Ram Dass, Rev. Bodhi Be and Zenith Virago.
