Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner
Sonia is a confident and highly motivated individual who is passionate about working with people to improve and develop their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. She trained initially as a dancer, specializing in Contemporary Dance and in this setting she very naturally developed an interest in gaining more knowledge about health and fitness and went on to study to become a fitness trainer with a keen interest in Pilates and Yoga. She is now a highly skilled and professionally qualified Health & Fitness and Studio Instructor, specializing in Pilates – Pilates Master – and Yoga – Hatha and Vinyasa – Somatic Movement Coach – using these exercise methods to design unique programs to fit the individual’s needs, working with clients that have problems ranging from sciatic nerve pain to MS, lower back problems to hyper mobility and many more conditions. Her journey continued and through having her own health problems she came across Kinesiology – a gentle non invasive muscle testing that can identify any imbalances in the body, may they be structural, nutritional, emotional or electrical (i.e. neuro-lymphatic, neuro-vascular meridians) by accessing one’s ability to hold a particular muscle against light pressure – and ART (Autonomic Response Testing) the autonomic nervous system that can not be controlled by the mind - and decided to study both as it would not only widen her understanding of how the body and the mind works, but it would help to treat the underlying cause for people’s health conditions and help restore their fitness level even more effectively. Learning that the body and the mind have natural healing abilities that we can tap into to support our wellbeing, she came across EFT Therapy (emotional freedom technique), which helps to achieve physical and emotional wellbeing in a faster time frame. To support her work she has also studied to become a Sports Massage Therapist, specialising in myofascial release and trigger points, Indian head massage and Ante and Postnatal massage. She is continuing to develop her understanding of movement and the effects it can have on our bodies and is studying Somatic Movement Therapy to become a coach. Her ability to build rapport with a wide range of people from all over the world through excellent teaching and communication skills, her extensive language skills, fluent in Italian, German, English and French and her sensitivity to individual needs ensures that she is successful in supporting clients at all levels.
