Sona Buchanan

yoga instructor

Sona is a yoga and ayurveda practitioner who has been immersed in these ancient wisdom traditions throughout her life. Sona’s yoga journey began with bedtime stories that were yogic texts, morning worship (puja) accompanied by chanting of mantra, daily ayurvedic rituals and the discipline and devotion (kriya yoga) learnt from years of studying Indian classical dance. In 2004, she began a hatha yoga practice to balance the intensity of being a college dancer.

 

Sona completed her 200 hr teacher training at Kripalu Yoga and her 300 hour advanced training at 8 Limbs Yoga Center. She has offered yoga education since 2009 and has led teacher trainings since 2018. In Sona’s yoga classes, you will find reverence and exploration, anchored in breath and woven together by functional and flowing movement. The intention is always to build vitality and resilience but ultimately, it is remembrance, or coming home. Sona seeks to honor her heritage and the roots of yoga while holding space and meeting students as they are, both in their humanness and beingness.

 

Sona has additional experience in teaching yoga to veterans, trauma-informed yoga, bhakti yoga, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, children’s/teens yoga, pre/postnatal yoga and Thai yoga bodywork. A first-generation Indian American immigrant, Sona feels compelled and inspired to uphold and share these practices in a simple and heartfelt way, while advocating for inclusivity, equity and access in yoga spaces.
