Everyone knows the holidays can be stressful. As we move deeper into winter, the dark time of the year, our bodies naturally call for us to slow down and turn inside. Unfortunately, many of us do just the opposite during this time. Hectic family gatherings, busy shopping trips, holiday parties, and extra-travel all exhaust the body and mind. This year give yourself the gift of self-care. Make time for a weekend of deep renewal and return to your life on monday morning profoundly revitalized!

Join Sonya for the Post-Holiday Detox Yoga Retreat in January 2014 and escape for three days of self-care, relaxation and deep renewal to recover from the stress of the holiday season.

Retreat Leader: Sonya Genel, E-RYT, PRYT
Leader Biography: Sonya joyfully embraces the power of yoga not only to heal and transform the body but also to heighten human consciousness and to create a radiant life.
Sonya is an experienced yoga teacher with hundreds of hours of training in yoga, body mechanics, and meditation. She first began practicing yoga as a teenager in Boston at Baron Baptiste’s popular Power Yoga Studios. She was not planning on becoming a teacher, but after a few years the powerful benefits of her own practice compelled Sonya to share the transformative gift of yoga with others. She completed her first teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. There she learned about subtle anatomy and yoga philosophy. Over the years she has continuously studied Tantric and alignment based yoga with her beloved teachers Sianna Sherman and KK Ledford. She has also trained in anatomy and body mechanics with Jill Miller (founder of Yoga Tune Up), and meditation under the tutelage of world renowned scholar and meditation teacher Paul Muller-Ortega.

Sonya is now a certified experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT) leading public classes, workshops, trainings, and retreats in the Bay Area. In her classes, Sonya weaves precise anatomical alignment with flowing movement, always approaching her students with authenticity and humor. She believes this body is the key to unlocking the great mystery of who we really are, finding astonishing transformation, and unleashing radical creativity.

When she is not teaching yoga, Sonya can often be found drawing or painting. As an artist, she notices the profound effects yoga has on her creativity, and she has dedicated herself to enthusiastically guiding others toward enhancing their own unique life path through yoga.
