Soni Anderson has been a yoga enthusiast since infancy. As a baby in the Fiji islands, she received yoga massage from her grandmother while her grandfather danced and performed stories from ancient Hindu texts. Her village endorsed meditation and an Ayurvedic lifestyle, prompting Soni to practice her asanas alongside extended family and friends as she matured. Today, as the owner and head teacher of SoniYoga, she strives to combine her grandfather's playful mindset with the therapeutic customs of her homeland.
SoniYoga focuses on the Hatha style, though its studio also embraces restorative, Kundalini, and yin and yang postures during certain classes. A serene atmosphere of acceptance welcomes all students to challenge themselves each time they visit, whether they wish to push the boundaries of their flexibility with a more advanced pose or with a more restrictive suit of armor. Soni also channels her holistic upbringing by offering Ayurvedic counseling, products, and massage services which can help customize a wellness plan for clients based on their body types.
What was once an empty warehouse is now a haven where heat lovers can stretch their minds and bodies during daily Bikram yoga classes. Instructors Brandy and Sara credit Bikram Choudhury's 26-posture series for improving their self-esteem, instilling spiritual clarity, and even helping heal Sara's herniated disks. The series includes standing and seated postures that bend, twist, and stretch the spine and its peripherals. Bikram yoga's balmy atmosphere may seem intimidating, but each class welcomes practitioners of all experience and fitness levels.
