Sonja van der Weijden

Location: Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands Studio(s): Body Mind Alphen, studio for Yoga and Pilates
Sonja is founder and owner of Body Mind Alphen, studio for Yoga and Pilates in the Netherlands (Alphen a/d Rijn). It is centered between all the big cities: The Hague, Utrecht and Amsterdam. Sonja was road bycicle racer and ice skater for many years, now she thinks about that time; 'wish I had done yoga than already!' It would have been such an added value!

Yoga came on Sonja’s path when she lived as an expat in Singapore. There she experienced her first yoga class as a mom-to-be. In that moment she fell for the amazing effects yoga had on her mind and body. Back in Holland she started from 2004 exploring different styles, she discontinued her freelance marketing jobs and started with various astanga yoga teacher trainings. Inspired and renewed she started teaching Ashtanga Yoga and Pilates. She enrolled her mat with various yoga teachers who all influenced her in a certain way. But since 2010 she is deeply influenced, committed and in love with prana flow yoga, this beautiful free-liberating-style of yoga.

When you’re in Holland feel free to join her class, you’re more than welcome!
