Sonja has been teaching Qoya since 2016 when she trained with founder Rochelle Schieck in France. On a personal level, Qoya has transformed Sonja's life by giving her the tools to finally feel truth in her own body, to access and trust her intuition and to allow the unfolding of a deep remembering of who she is - courageous, sensual and intelligent. Sonja runs classes and Workshops in Dorset and trains Qoya Teachers in the UK via The Initiation in Poole, Dorset every Spring and Autumn Equinox. She is a mother, vinyasa yoga instructor, massage therapist and tantric meditation teacher. To learn more please visit

When did you take your first Qoya class? September 2016

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? Teaching Qoya is a deep privilege and honour. To watch women remember their magnificent essence and reconnect profoundly to both themselves and each other is a life-changing gift. It's like watching a beautiful rose unfurl before your eyes!

What is your favorite song to dance to right now? “A Million Dreams” by Pink

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine? My life changed beyond recognition after reading 3 books: Women Who Run With The Wolves, Gaia Codex, and The Radiance Sutras.

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time? Truthfully, a woman knows if she is feeling the call for Qoya or not, so I never try to persuade anyone. She either feels it or she doesn't - and if she does, then there is no ignoring it! This dance has transformed my life profoundly, and I wouldn't have been ready for that change a day earlier. I am eternally grateful for the perfect timing.
