As a child she wanted to be a circus acrobat and studied various dance and movement techniques, as well as yoga (Sivananda) She went on to have three children and obtained an M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies before developing a serious yoga practice and following this path to become a Yoga and Pilates teacher in 2006. Spirituality has been fundamental to Sonja’s approach to life, and yoga asanas are to her the most direct physical path toward a meditative state of being. Sonja loves teaching yoga because it is creative and immediate, and she considers her students to be her most inspiring teachers.
