2022 Retreat: Testimonials

Sonya Renée (Yoga, Meditation, Mantra Facilitator)

Sonya has always been a seeker. Born and raised in Wisconsin, she was always looking for meaning, symbols and her larger life purpose hidden in the natural world. Her purpose became clear when she moved to California. With roots now in San Diego, Sonya shares mindfulness meditation and is dedicated to integrating mindfulness into the corporate world to help manage stress and encourage all to live a happier, healthier life.

Under the guidance of skillful teachers and the lens of her own devoted curiosity, her practice has evolved, unfolded and eventually led her to graduate her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Sojourn Healing Collective. Passionate about sharing mindfulness with others, Sonya weaves mantra, meditation and yogic philosophy into each of her classes.

She encourages all students to approach their mat through the perspective of Svadhyaya, “self study” by guiding them into a practice to connect with their body, calm their mind, feel present in the moment and often leaves her students with gold nuggets to reflect back on off the mat. Her classes are an artful blend of movement and stillness. Her flows are purposefully simple to help her students slow down, quiet the mind, and heighten their awareness.
