      Sonia is a blessing and a lifesaver !

    Sonia came into my life at a moment when I needed it most, actually I went to India to reconnect to myself thru yoga, but an injury made me change my plans and I met Sonia, like a guardian angel falling at the very right moment. We worked together during a few weeks with different types of learnings she offers like reiki, counseling/life coaching, astrology, women empowerment/sacred feminine and aqua floating. All during the process she accompanied me from tears to laughs with a beautiful understanding and compassionnate heart, it took me time to realize how our work together did a loads of good to me and the directions I would give to my life. From our first encounter, I knew I was at the right place and hopefully she would help me, and she did, and even more. I left with a big heart to follow on my travels and my life but also with many many tools to be able to navigate thru life without drowning anymore. It's been over a year and I can still appreciate and feel the support, and I use the precious advices and tools in my every day life. I just want to thank her for everything from her listening, her life sharing, her advices, her positive energy to her vegan yummy cooking, or simply to thank her for being who she is and to assume every part of it or also, to thank her to be on her own healing path and to have the generosity to share her knowledge to whomever will cross the door and feel the vibe. Thank you Sonia ! :)

      Such a blessing to have crossed paths with Sonja- she positively impacted my journey

    Sonja made a big difference in my life. I met her as I was ready to do some deep inner work and come off my antidepressants. It was powerful work that helped me understand myself as a woman and connect with all that I am. I removed my mariner and got back in touch with my body. Her energy stayed with me for some time onwards and it was this experience that encouraged me to keep going when our time was up. Today I am 2 1/2 years sober and in the best space of my life because I kept on progressing forwards. I would highly recommend her. She is a powerful healer and has a very special space.

      Be in harmony with life!

    I know Sonia for couple of years now, we had very particular way of connection and she has also very particular place in my inner journey. Since I have been coming back to Varkal almost every year, it became my second home and Sonia part of it, i have been visiting her often and we had lot of deep conversations. After i did 3 or 4 day raiki healing with her, it touched me, cleared up somethings inside. She is sensitive and she works lot for help others and same time work on herself for be more balanced and keep harmony within herself. I guess we all come in this planet for grow from our own life experience, grow for be better person, in balanced, in harmony and every single day we move on towards it, even though sometimes it seems we get blocked. I recommend you Sonia, she knows her mission in this life and she follows it, for why i respect her lot. She has lot to share! Bless you all and enjoy from true, beautiful sisterhood, brotherhood, friendship connection, that is food for our soul!

      Great vibes

    Was well received in Shakti ashram, loved the colors in my room, the decoration and the art around. The people were very friendly and the food was absolutely stunning as much visually as for the taste buds. Truly a beautiful place and with good vibrations.
