Hi! I’m Sonya Matejko, and I’m a writer and yoga teacher living in NYC. 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. My writing has been featured on HuffPost, Thought Catalog, Elite Daily, I AM & CO, Mogul, and more.
In 2018, I founded @aforceofnurture as a home for inspiration and self-expression. I completed my 200hr YTT with YogaWorks and am certified in both Reiki 1 and Exhale to Inhale’s Trauma-Informed Yoga. When not leading a class or workshop, you’ll find me writing in coffee shops or off exploring the world.
Express Yo(ga)self, is a yoga and journaling workshop. We start with a 50-minute slow-flow yoga class and follow it up with a 10-minute guided meditation to activate the throat chakra. From there, we begin an introspective and reflective journaling exercise with plenty of time for sharing. If you’re in New York City, come elevate your self-awareness through this expressive, heart-opening practice. Join me at The Assemblage, Awakening NY, ShaktiBarre Willamsburg, or ShaktiBarre Dumbo. Want to host it at your studio? Contact me.
