Soraya (Sora Yoga)
Soraya guides you in flowing movements through strengthening, dynamic yoga units combined with calm meditative elements. The breath plays a central role in this and enables a mindful posture to intensify the inward view.
For Soraya, yoga means getting in touch with oneself and creating more inner space.
Since she was a child, Soraya has been curious about Eastern philosophy and healing practices. In 2006 she deepened her yoga practice and since 2016 she has been leading sessions and retreats in Zurich and abroad (Sardinia, Sri Lanka and Portugal) with her SORA YOGA label.
