Sonya M. Shafer is a RYT 200 Yoga teacher from Frankford, WV. She grew up in the mountains, and left WV to see the world in the early 2000s. After most recently living and working in NYC and Los Angeles, she returned in 2020 to slow down and breathe the air in those beloved WV mountains. Sonya enjoys being outside in nature, traveling, dyeing textiles and finding quiet spaces to slow down and breathe.

Sonya started practicing yoga in Prague, CZ in 2010, and completed her 200-hour training at Yogaworks in Brooklyn in 2016. Yoga is a continuing education to slow down and just ‘be’ and a great complimentary practice alongside the corporate ad gig Sonya works remotely and the small textile business she runs on the side. Sonya enjoys introducing yoga to people who may not have experienced the practice, physically and spiritually, and will share her love of Hatha and slowing down and getting curious, along with inspiring readings and delightfully juicy Savasanas. Sonya is looking forward to seeing your light shine in class.
