Teacher Spotlight! Sonya

We are so excited to be adding another talented teacher to our schedule.

Meet Sonya.

Sonya found her way to yoga in 2007 while working on her PhD in English literature. She discovered that linking breath and movement in vinyasa flows was the perfect way to relieve the stress of graduate school, and has been practicing ever since. As expected from a PhD in English, you can find lovely and precise cuing in her classes.

Sonya received her YOGA ALLIANCE RYT-200 training in 2015 at Charlotte Family Yoga, working with Diane Cevallos and Hollace Stephenson. She has also been trained in prenatal yoga through Charlotte Family Yoga, Curvy Yoga with Anna Guest-Jelley, and children’s yoga with Karma Kids Yoga and the Children’s Yoga Teacher Training Collaborative.

She has taught yoga in North Carolina, Colorado, and is happy to teaching in her newly adopted home here in Gorham. Her classes emphasize safe alignment and building strength, endurance, and flexibility. She loves working with props to make asana accessible for bodies of all shapes, sizes, and abilities.

Off the mat, Sonya enjoys spending time with her husband, twin sons, and cats; doing crossfit; and cross-stitching until her eyes cross. 

We think she is awesome, and we know you will too! Sonya offers a Flow for All on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm.
