Sonja Richmond

Sonja offers carefully sequenced yoga classes fused with vast medical knowledge

that result in a unique whole body expression and self care.

Sonja, a native of Miami, resides in the DC metropolitan area and is a practicing

physician in the areas of Internal Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine. On a

daily basis, she manages complex medical conditions affecting patients under her

care that often leads them to have low mood and lowered quality of life.

In 2005, during residency training, Sonja opened her heart to the study of Yoga.

With the goal of positively affecting her mental exhaustion and physical fatigue, she

embraced the many dimensions of breathing, meditation, and movement. Now these

explorations have led her to bring the essence of yoga off the mat and into the

hospital rooms, homes and personal lives of all.
