Philosophy

Why It Matters

Yoga therapy brings unique benefits to individuals who have lost their sense of well-being.

Yoga therapy in its least effective form conforms the individual to the ideals yoga without considering the needs and desires of the individual.

Yoga therapy in its most effective form is a personalized practice incorporating breath, movement, and meditation, that leaves the practitioner feeling relaxed and nourished.

My Story

Sonia Weirich

I entered the world of yoga because physical movement has always made me feel good, but it is primarily the mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of yoga that kept me practicing regularly. 

I have always been an avid athlete enjoying running, cycling, swimming, and team sports in my teens.  In my 20s I practiced martial arts and obtained a black belt in Shotokan Karate.  Then in my 30s I returned to yoga, which was introduced to me as a child by my mother. 

As I practiced yoga I noticed the profoundly calming effects it had on me.  I decided to deepen my practice and delved into the study of yoga.  I became a yoga teacher at the E-RYT 500 level and then a certified yoga therapist C-IAYT. 

Parallel to my study of yoga I have studied with different Gurus to deepen my spiritual practice which got sparked in my 20s.  I currently study with a Guru in the non-dual tradition and am a renunciate practitioner. 

Overall I bring 15+ years of yoga teaching experience and 25+ years of spiritual practice to my classes and individual client sessions.  My life experiences and education offer my students and clients a unique energy and perspective.  Over the years I have seen people’s lives change for the better through the practice of yoga.    

Testimonials

What People are Saying

“Self Empowerment”

“I started doing private yoga sessions with Sonia because of the side effects I was experiencing from anxiety medication. With the support of Sonia and my psychiatrist I was able to come off the drug. While the drug helped me get through a difficult time in my life, my regular yoga practice now empowers me to manage my emotions naturally.” F.S.

 

“Better Than PT”

“The work I have been doing in private sessions with Sonia over the past 8 weeks, has been more effective for my shoulder than 1yr of PT.  It is impacting everything; my cycling and paddling have changed.  I can breathe better, I have more endurance, and I feel better.”  D.S.

“Better Than Cognitive Therapy”

“These yoga therapy sessions are more effective than the cognitive behavioral therapy I have been doing.”  M.H.

 

 

“Skilled Guide”

“In the past I had tried many times to meditate without success.  I didn’t think I could even do 5 minutes, but I did and one of our sessions consisted of a 45min guided meditation focused on healing. Wow what a powerful session that was.” – RVW

Yoga Therapy

Yoga is inherently therapeutic as it functions on all levels of one’s being – physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual.  This is why so many people are attracted to yoga and why so many health care professionals are now recommending yoga.  Numerous studies have been conducted on the benefits of yoga and now the therapeutic aspect of yoga is backed by scientific research.  This is why and how the field of yoga therapy has grown in the United States.  People are now looking to yoga not only for recreational purposes, but as a therapeutic tool for physical, mental, emotional, energetic and/or spiritual well-being.
