Senior Instructor

Sonia is a former professional dancer and Art History Graduate who has lived in London for the last eight years. She danced internationally for ten years and appeared on TV in the UK and in France. Her final professional dance years were at the world famous ‘Moulin Rouge’ in Paris, France.

After retiring from the dance world in 2003, Sonia trained to become a Bikram Yoga instructor in LA. She then taught Bikram yoga in Paris, and from 2006 in London, where she also qualified to become a Moksha yoga teacher and a pregnancy yoga teacher.

Sonia discovered BARREtoned relatively recently but very quickly realised that this form of exercise was a fantastic, full body work out that gives amazing results!

“I’ve had an upper back injury for many years that was getting worse due to hyper mobility issues in my joints. I was ecstatic to find that within only one month of taking BARREtoned classes my problem area had already started to stabilise. The action of specifically and intensely targeting muscles, as we do in BARREtoned, has helped to significantly strengthen the muscles around all my joints. I’ve tried many other body conditioning and strengthening methods but non have been as effective as BARREtoned!”

When Sonia is not teaching or taking class at BARREtoned she is a full time mum to her two little girls.

She is passionate about helping clients to develop a greater awareness of their bodies using the effective and safe framework that BARREtoned provides.
