About Sonya

Sonya is awesome. You'll love her. She's experienced. She's adventurous. She's gentle while pushing the boundaries of physical limitations and life itself. Sonya walks her talk, so you know she's been in every pose she talks about, and then some. Living with her own disability of blindness, Sonya understands what it's like to courageously and compassionately push past limitations and grow. She even ventured out last year with Bear Grylls to Face the Wild. Check them out on Facebook Watch. And come explore your own adventurous yoga journey with a teacher who understands and knows how to support at every level.
