Hi there! My name is Sonya Matejko, and I’m a writer, yoga teacher, and communications consultant living in New York City. I’m on a mission to help people express and empower themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually. By embracing vulnerability, I hope to move people toward their highest potential. As a communications professional with years of experience building positive brand exposure for major companies and writing for top-tier publications, I help people rewrite and tell their stories--personally and professionally. I’m also a pro event host and have led workshops at spaces like The Assemblage, Shaktibarre, Awakening NY, Breather, and more. My writing has been featured on HuffPost, Elite Daily, Thought Catalog, I AM & CO, Mogul, and Yoga Magazine. In 2018, I also founded @aforceofnurture on Instagram as a dedicated home for inspiration and self-expression. I completed my 200hr YTT with YogaWorks and am certified in Reiki 1, Yin Yoga, and Exhale to Inhale’s Trauma-Informed Yoga. When not leading a class or writing, you’ll find me meeting clients for coffee or exploring the world.
