The charming Sonia’s first experience with Yoga was due to pressure from her mother. But today, she is grateful to her mother for doing that. She was immediately hooked onto Yoga and the way that it challenged her. In school, Sonia was in the thick of the sporting action, swimming and playing basketball. After completing a commerce degree from Mount Carmel College, Sonia landed up in Goldman Sachs doing various roles and worked there for 7 years. Sonia’s regular practice got her thinking about making a lifestyle shift and that included making a modest living out of Yoga. She started learning Yoga seriously in 2013 and has been teaching since 2014. She is a Hata Yoga teacher and specializes in Pre-Natal Yoga. She is also keen on specializing in Pilates in the near future. Her philosophy while she conducts classes “is to guide, encourage and applaud the efforts made (by practitioners) and to ultimately help them believe in themselves.” Apart from Yoga, Sonia loves to spend time with her family and her dog, Dino.
“To put it simply, yoga means belief in myself. Looking inwards to be content and achieve peace of mind apart from physical well being. Having a strong sense of faith that my own capabilities and emotional strength will help me achieve true happiness”
