Eryt-200, b.s. exercise physiology
Sonya has been practicing yoga in her own body since childhood and taught exercise since 2004. First as an exercise specialist teaching rehabilitative exercise, and then as a certified personal trainer. After earning a masters in business in 2013, she shifted her focus to primarily teaching yoga.
Sonya is always seeking ways to blend science of exercise with the physical and philosophical foundations of yoga. Her yoga teaching style reflects the principles of functional training & exercise sequencing, the importance of proper anatomical alignment, and the science of muscle recruitment and physiology of exercise.
Sonya makes it a point in her classes encourage individuals to do more than “just go through the motions” as she emphasizes engagement, form, breath, mindset and connectedness. Her goal is to provide lighthearted yoga classes that fit and serve each student, guiding them through challenging, yet achievable, exercise sessions which leave them feeling balanced, successful, strong, and revitalized.
