Welcome to Monticello Yoga! My name is Sonya, and I love teaching yoga. I want to help you build strength, flexibility and balance.
I began practicing yoga after my son was born, ten years ago, and I found that it was exactly what my body craved. After attending classes regularly for 3 years I made the first step towards becoming a yoga teacher. I am certified as a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher and am currently working towards 500 hours.
Before I started practicing yoga regularly, I struggled with anxiety about things completely beyond my control. This caused more stress, and led to stomach problems and headaches. Regular yoga practice has made me more physically fit, but more importantly I now have the tools to manage anxiety. I want to share what I’ve learned with you because we all deal with private issues of pain, stress, and worry. If you’re feeling exhausted or overwhelmed, I can help you feel better.
After every class, we all feel relaxed and energized. This is evident in the change on everyone’s face as they leave with bright smiles.
I moved to Monticello in 2012 and live with my husband and son on a small farm. When I’m not teaching elementary school art or yoga classes, I enjoy gardening, walking, and baking.
I’m so thankful to see everyone each week and look forward to many years together!
