Christa Sonnier is an E-RYT200, a children’s and prenatal yoga teacher and trainer, and co-owner of Breathe Yoga and Wellness Center in Pensacola, FL. She has studied with many teachers over the years, and her main influences include: Laura Tyree, Judith Lasater, Cora Wen, Doug Keller, and Erich Schiffmann. She enjoys introducing students to the restorative and therapeutic benefits of yoga, and often works with those with injuries or physical limitations. In her classes, Christa encourages her students to listen to the wisdom of their own body and breath and provides subtle energy cues to take them deeper into their individual experience.
Christa is also certified in Sonia Sumar’s Yoga for the Special Child and specializes in teaching yoga for children with autism and ADHD. In 2014, along with her business partner, Stacey Vann, she founded Galactic Child, a teacher training program for children’s yoga. She loves teaching children because they inspire and challenge her to see the world in new and unique ways.
In addition to teaching yoga, Christa works privately with clients as a certified life coach, doula, intuitive healer, and shamanic practioner. She feels a deep calling to empower others to develop greater connections to themselves and the world around them. She creates a nurturing, supportive environment that encourages clients to delve deeply into the well of their own life, so they can begin to uncover dreams and desires that are otherwise hidden.
