200hr: September 2021
After practicing yoga on and off for many years, Sonia committed to her yoga practice at the
beginning of 2021 and received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certification with I Am
Yoga in September. She specializes in Yin Yoga and Pre-Natal Yoga, with the intention to help
women strengthen their bodies enabling safe passage and providing strong attachment for their babies.
Originally from Joliet, IL, Sonia is a mom and technical writer. She gained a bachelor’s degree in English from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago and studied Professional Writing at The University of Memphis. She created The Word Yard, LLC, a professional writing boutique that specializes in custom resumes for professionals in 2015. A lifelong learner, Sonia fosters her love for both writing and yoga by hosting workshops in journaling and storytelling that employ yoga principles and practices. Sonia lives in Charlotte with her daughter, Crescent.
When the two of them aren’t traveling and spending time with family, you can catch her at home in thick, fuzzy socks reading a book and sipping tea… or wine.
