Sonia has practiced yoga for more than 12 years. Her introduction came during her time in the dance department at The University of Texas at Austin. Since then, Sonia has practiced various types of yoga around the world—from Nicaragua, to France, Mexico and The Netherlands. Sonia’s commitment to teaching came at the encouragement of her own teacher. She is proud to have been a part of Larry Thraen's 200-Hr 'Yoga of You' teacher training at Joy Yoga. She is a registered yoga teacher (RYT 200) through Yoga Alliance.
Yoga has been the perfect balance to Sonia's intense work as the Health & Medical reporter for Channel 8, WFAA-TV in Dallas. As an instructor, she strives to help other people recognize their own strength and enhance their flexbility -- on and off the mat. After all, how you move in yoga is how you move through life. She believes that through a consistent practice, students can learn to live with more presence, patience, gratitude and courage. Letting go of fear, indecision and that which no longer serves us-- are among the themes Sonia weaves into her classes.
