After studies in social sciences and in business administration Sonja works for more than 15 years in different roles for an international company. About 15 years ago, Sonja discovered Kundalini Yoga while she was looking for more sense and joy in life. Right from the beginning, she knew yoga would play an important role in her life. Practicing yoga and meditation have become a vital part of her daily routine and it helps her to concentrate and to face her challenges better.
Following his studies in economics, Marten started to work for a big insurance company. His career in the insurance industry had reached its 15th year when he sensed it was time to reconsider what he was doing and do somethings else. So, he sold his house in the Netherlands and found a nice spot in Italy. He enrolled into a series of different workshops and finally ended up learning Sat Nam Rasayan Healing (Practitioner, Amsterdam). Besides developing workshops for meditation and healing, he also writes spiritual books.

"First kundalini yoga experience "
Superb and remote quite area in beautiful Umbria, all transport requirements can be met but would recommend a car. Fantastic hosts who provided very healthy delicious vegetarian food, the yoga studio was in a lovely setting and Sonja a great instructor who provided different, challenging yoga every day very inspirational and left us both with a desire to continue kundalini yoga. Local facilities were all a short drive away, beautiful lake, excellent restaurants and stunning views.

"A relaxing week in the countryside of Toscana/Umbria"
A really peaceful place. Excellent for escaping from big city life. Sonja and Marten were really friendly and it was a pleasure to spend time with them. Small group size made it feel very personal. I left feeling like a friend rather than a guest.

Yoga in Umbria with Sonja simply a dream. If you want to do yoga and relax, the soul is right here. Fabulous silence, awaken with birdsong between olive trees and the wonderful Umbrian nature. Sonja is a wonderful hostess who opens the door of her house and you immediately feel welcome. Everything is possible, you can depend on the daily yoga and a healthy breakfast in the garden, or go to the nearby towns of Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, and so on . It is also not far is the Lago di Trasimeno. Sonja is also an excellent yoga teacher who adapts to every level and you have the first success stories after a short time. A real luxury is the personal care in the small group. If you like it personal and individual, here is the best way. Thanks Sonja. It was great! I learned a lot and would like to come again. See you soon!
