Sonia first took an interest in yoga while mimicking her grandfather’s morning yoga practice as a child. Soon after, she was fortunate enough to study under the tutelage of Shri BKS Iyengar and his family in Pune, India for many years. Through strict, watchful, and compassionate eyes, yoga as taught by the Iyengar family left a radiant impression to say the very least. Today, for Sonia, the practice of yoga generates courage, builds resilience, shields against illness, and cultivates immense joy.
Sonia is a certified Iyengar yoga instructor at the Junior 1 level. Her classes incorporate the intelligence of alignment and stability with the exploration of strength and flexibility, in order to cultivate a lively quality within the body and mind. She believes that yoga is a universal gift; she enjoys finding ways to make the poses meaningful for all who walk into her class and is passionate in sharing the gift of this practice with as many as possible.
Sonia also holds a B.A. in Media Studies from UC Berkeley, an M.A. in Gastronomy from Boston University, and is the mother of an adventurous toddler. When not on the yoga mat, you can find her experimenting with recipes in the kitchen, journaling about food, health, and Indian philosophy, or spending time outdoors with her sweet son.
