"...a wonderful combination of relaxing and challenging."
I've been practising various styles of yoga (Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar) for over ten years and when I moved to the UK in 2009 I was worried I wouldn't be able to find a class or teacher I liked. I love Sonia! Her classes are a wonderful combination of relaxing and challenging. Her approach is gentle and playful but she takes her teaching seriously, and knows what she's doing. A class with Sonia will allow you to dig in, de-stress, and become more aware of your body. I highly recommend her.
