My name is Sonia. I teach the practical principles of movement as therapy, diet and lifestyle for optimum health and I provide massage and teach self massage techniques to those who need to re-establish their connection to both the quiet space within and nature’s rhythms, two of our greatest healing remedies.

Five Elements Workshops for Yoga Teachers and Massage Therapists
Participants will be able to easily design and implement fabulous remedial content using the Four Ayurvedic Elemental Wheels.
My love of movement, dance, Yoga, gymnastics, rollerskating and generally loving to run, jump and spin has been with me for as long as I can remember. I have woven together my favourites of all the above, bar the rollerskates! as a health practice for body and mind.
My classes are a blend of long held remedial stretches, slow restorative breath with movement sequences and strong core work designed to connect into and bring out strength and balance. I also incorporate my extensive Ayurvedic knowledge – moving along with the natural seasonal rhythms and energy, self-massage techniques, diet and lifestyle practices and breath work to help each student find their best way of easing imbalanced, strained, misaligned, stressed or painful bodies back into balance.
