Sonya Verma RYT 200, Reiki Master, MHSA, MBI
Sonya is a yoga instructor, meditation coach and Reiki Master
Prior to her journey as a yoga instructor she earned her B.S. in Human Nutrition and Masters in Healthcare Administration and Business Informatics. During her time in school and working in the healthcare industry, yoga and meditation became a cornerstone of her life and helped her stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. She felt drawn to different modalities of healing and went deeper into her practice which inspired her to share her passion with others.
She finished her RYT 200 Yoga training in 2013 with the Bija School with a focus in Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga. Currently she is working on her 300 RYT training with You Do Yoga where she is learning Daoist forms of yoga that include Yin Yang, subtle anatomy and meditation.
In 2016 she completed True Body Leadership training and currently holds meditation and mindfulness workshops with adults and also works in after school programs and summer camps with local schools for children.
Additionally, she is a Reiki Master trained in the traditional Usui method. She also works with other modes of Energy healing having completed training with Begin to Blossom with her teacher Julie Conrad, as well as Shambhavi healing, an ancient Indian healing system taught by Avdhoot Baba Shivanand Ji.
Additional certifications are in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Aromatherapy with essential oils. She will be starting her journey into becoming an Ayurvedic Practitioner in January.
When Sonya is not teaching yoga or training she enjoys spending quality time with her husband Daniel and two lovely kittens Bodhi and Willow. She also enjoys spending time with her family, friends, cooking, hiking and traveling.
