We began our journey in 2001 in the heart of New York City's bustling Hell's Kitchen district and quickly blossomed into a mecca for NYC's theatre-set and others looking for a super-friendly place to come together and practice yoga. Since them, we've welcomed more than 15,000 students into our family and trained hundreds of teachers, from nearly every continent on Earth (save the North & South Poles, but we're working on that).
TEACHER TRAINING: Knowing and really connecting with the people you’ll be studying with is so important…don’t you think? Our program is co-directed by Sonic founder, Lauren Hanna and Johanna Aldrich and is taught by them along with a small number of wonderful teachers, handpicked for their expert knowledge, compassion and ability to inspire and teach teachers.
Since 2001, we’ve graduated hundreds of teachers from all over the United States, France, Spain, U.K., Russia, Hungary, Poland, Israel, Japan, China, Indonesia, Central and South America, the Dominican Republic, Canada and beyond.
In fact, many or our international graduates have flown to New York City just to take our training and bring what they’ve learned back to their home-states and countries. In order to better accommodate the quickly-growing international demand for our programs, we now offer trainings in two languages, English and Japanese, and it looks like Spanish, Mandarin and Italian may be in the works.
During your training, you’ll study directly with the school Directors, the dynamic team that heads up Citysearch #1-rated Sonic Yoga NYC and had Yoga Journal proclaiming they “raise the bar for yoga innovation!” But, enough about us, we are here for YOU! Our students are our family (without the awkward Thanksgiving brawls). When you come to play in our house, you'll have the opportunity to cultivate a healthier, more-vital body, a peaceful, centered state of mind & an awakened spirit! Oh, and you might make a lot of great friends and sweat a bit, too!
