Sonia Dovedy

Sonia first took an interest in yoga while mimicking her grandfather’s morning yoga practice as a child. Soon after, she was fortunate enough to study under the tutelage of Shri BKS Iyengar and his family in Pune, India for many years. Through strict, watchful, and compassionate eyes, yoga as taught by the Iyengar family left a radiant impression to say the very least. Today, for Sonia, the practice of yoga generates courage, builds resilience, shields against illness, and cultivates immense joy.

Sonia is a certified Iyengar yoga instructor and a recent transplant from Boston. Her classes incorporate the intelligence of alignment and stability with the exploration of strength and flexibility, in order to cultivate a lively quality within the body and mind. She believes that yoga is a universal gift; she enjoys finding ways to make the poses meaningful for all who walk into her class and is passionate in sharing the gift of this practice with as many as possible.

Sonia also holds a B.A. in Media Studies from UC Berkeley and a M.A. in Gastronomy from Boston University. When not on the yoga mat, you can find her experimenting in the kitchen, trying out a new restaurant, or journaling about food, health, and Indian philosophy. She looks forward to meeting all of you!
