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 yoga therapy 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.

 

“Restore Wellbeing”

“I was experiencing troubling long COVID symptoms and heard that yoga therapy could help.  Right away the breathing practices Sonia showed me helped to regulate my nervous system and restore my breath.  The movements coordinated with my breath are also helping me to rebuild strength.  I now feel like I have the tools to manage long COVID and restore my health.” L.S.

“Life Changing”

“As a trauma survivor, it is a novelty to experience my body as a place of safety and I am so thankful to have been able to begin this relationship with myself.  Sonia is such a knowledgeable facilitator of body awareness and attunement and it lends to her skill and ability that this work is so deeply felt. Yoga therapy with Sonia has been very powerful and I will be forever grateful for the insight and foundation she has provided.”  M.R.

 

 

“Skilled Guide”

“When I first came to my yoga therapy sessions with Sonia I was challenged by anxiety and I had shoulder and other mobility issues from breaking my arm. Sonia is always patient, encouraging and quick to adapt to how I am feeling. She has helped me so much with my recovery from anxiety and her focus on increasing my shoulder mobility and movement in general has made an enormous difference to my life.” P.R.

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.
