Sonya's teaching style has changed quite a lot over the past year. Though she has received extensive training in Kundalini Yoga, she decided to focus on other styles of yoga in early 2020 after learning that the founder of Kundalini Yoga was abusive to his individual students and to the community in general, and that he may have completely made up some/many of the practices he taught.
She has recently become certified in Energy Medicine Yoga which is based on the teachings of Donna Eden and is currently studying Yin and Chinese Medicine for yoga. She has training in trauma sensitivity and body positive yoga. Sonya is always studying, and she has embarked on some serious self-study on cultural appropriation. She is working to incorporate these learnings into her yoga teaching.
Sonya is committed to making yoga accessible to all and uses a pay-what-you-can business model for her yoga classes.What can you expect? Gentle to moderate classes, and lots of pranayama. Every class is different. Some are very slow and meditative, others are a bit more active. If you would like to try one of her prerecorded classes before joining, please reach out and she would be happy to send one to you.
