Hi, I'm Sonja
In our modern world we have forgotten about the power of rest and restoration. Instead we have bought into the idea that go go go and doing ever more will get us ahead. Yet healing is rather the opposite - it is in resting, connecting, and paying attention in a supportive way, that a balancing shift can happen naturally.
In my offerings I intend to create welcoming spaces that allow for people to slow down, connect, recharge. Central themes in my teaching include embodiment techniques (sensing, movement and breath), inquiry around what it means to be human, our willingness to be here, and how to live heartminded in today's world.
For the past decade Yoga has been a great teacher to me - about myself, others and life. With my sensitive and empathic nature, Yoga enabled me to ground myself and reconnect with my body, which helped me to overcome unhealthy habits and fears. Mindfulness allowed me to feel and be with my emotions without running away, which has been life-changing.
Only after a few years of practising dynamic Yoga styles I discovered the nurturing benefits of a slower, deeper practice and became drawn to the Yin-side of Yoga.
I observed that slowing down and integrating meditation and mindfulness techniques have a healing effect, bringing us back to wholeness. I can't wait to share the practices that have supported me along this way with you - so they may support you, too.
