Sonja Richmond

Sonja offers carefully sequenced yoga classes fused with vast medical knowledge
that result in 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.
