Sonny Southon has studied yoga for 30+ years and is a E-RYT500, YACEP Advanced Yoga Teacher.  She first qualified as a teacher in London 2004 and continues to achieve her commitment to study/train annually in traditional or modern styles of yoga.  Her teaching combines these learnings and the best of her yoga experiences over 30+ years.  Her classes focus on building awareness of range of motion, strength, flexibility, breath, mindfulness and allowing a deep relaxation from yoga’s therapeutic approach to stimulating the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself.

Sonny’s teaching style is to serve her students and she weaves different styles into her classes –  Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Restorative, YIN, Yoga Nidra as well as pranayamama, mindfulness and meditation, sometimes ending her classes with sound baths using her Tibetan Singing Bowls. She teaches around Wellington, both corporate and public yoga classes. If you would like to attend a class, please visit Sonny’s Yoga Facebook page for more info.

When not teaching yoga, Sonny is a Professional Life Coach at The Music Seeds offering Mindset & Wellbeing Coaching to Musicians and Artist Development.  She is also a Singer-Songwriter, Engineer and Producer.
