Sojourner Williams

Turning inwards, digging deep to release stagnant spaces, liberating creativity through fluid breath driven movement, this is the pulse of my yoga practice. Devotion, creativity and joy are three words that reflect my yoga teaching style. My classes are about so much more than athleticism and fitness, they're about connecting breath with movement, finding and trusting in balance, and grounding down to uncover the courage to embrace challenges both on and off the mat. I began teaching yoga in 2008 and have taught in a variety of settings from the United States Senate, elementary and middle school classrooms and yoga studios in NYC and Washington DC.

I have a BFA in Musical Theatre, a MA in Educational Theatre and a MST in Secondary English Education. I love teaching and designing courses and spent a little over a decade teaching middle school English and Drama in New York City and abroad, while developing myself as a yogi and healer. I’m a 200-hour Laughing Lotus Yoga graduate, and am working towards completing my 500-hour certification in a blended Kundalini and Ayurveda based program.

I would never be able to sit in the discomfort of my tight hips without the beautiful guidance of Sojourner. Mantras and kundalini breath work to open and gently ease you into this wonderful class that provides so much release that I felt light as a feather in every way for days after. Sojourner makes it easy to let go with her steady cuing and yin flow. I loved every minute. Thank you, Sojourner.
