YO SOY SATYA
I AM TRUTH
Yo Soy. Spanish for "I Am."
Satya (SAH-tee-yah). Sanskrit for "Truth."
Drawn from her Hispanic roots, Yo Soy Satya is the culmination of Soña's personal journey into yoga, and her commitment to helping individuals, communities, and the planet benefit from the ancient living wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda, and other ancient healing traditions from around the world. What started as a path of one individual has evolved into a global collective of truth-seekers, inspired to support and empower each other and change the world.
SOÑA HERNANDEZ BRIGGS
FOUNDER & CEO
Soña is a Conscious Entrepreneur, E-RYT-500 Yoga Instructor, Certified Holistic Practitioner, Reiki Master, and founder of Yo Soy Satya. Her love for yoga comes from her own deep personal transformation; healing decade old injuries from a near-fatal car accident, weight loss, liberation of anxiety and depression, and an awakening to her truth (Satya). She now devotes her life to sharing the wisdom of self-healing with others, believing fully that we all have the deep-rooted capacity to take charge of our destiny, heal ourselves and invoke lasting personal transformation in our lives. Sona's holistic lifestyle including business, yoga, energy anatomy, design, music, and love of the outdoors are all expressions of this devotion.
Trained in Kripalu and Himalayan Institute based philosophy, Soña's teaching conveys the depth of her experience and lifelong dedication as a student of holistic health and yoga. Her style reflects the teachings of her sages Bhava Ram, Anne Mascelli, Laveta Piemme, Jennifer Yost, Eric Schiffmann, Donna Farhi, Lauren Walker, Rupert Sheldrake, Nassim Haramein, Max Strom, Shari Friedrichsen, Sandra Anderson, Ishan Tigunait, Jennifer Reis, and many others.
Soña approaches life with compassion for all, creatively sharing the living wisdom of yoga to inspire and awaken students to the transformative power of self-inquiry, humor, and of course yoga.
