Sonya creates an accessible yoga practice to all by stepping back into the teacher role which she has so greatly missed. She loves nothing more than to support and see the subtle internal shifts a class of calm on a yoga mat can bring to an individual.

Sonya is a passionate Spiritual Life Guide and Labyrinth Facilitator that added yoga to her personal practices in 2008, she started teaching yoga in 2010. She offered yoga to youth within school and community settings, after a friend introduced her to the practice and it changed her view of her body. Sonya incorporated yogic philosophies into her home life and the lives of her children, two of which are now also registered yoga teachers.

Sonya’s calm and grounded presence offers her students a nourishing space to explore and deepen their individual yogic practices. She loves to create quiet, contemplative space for others to connect deeper with themselves, whether that be through a guided yoga practice, meditation, labyrinth walk or as a spiritual life guide.

“I was in LA and started doing Kundalini Yoga classes. It is powerful stuff and a great workout.  I also went to Auckland with Arvinderfee she’s great too.”
