Sofiah Thom

Sofiah Thom, the creator of Danyasa Yoga Arts, believes that every person possesses an inner artist -- a unique, individual creative spark that just needs to be allowed or inspired to show itself. Sofiah's mission lies in nurturing this creative spark in others with the aim to inspire them to live to their fullest creative potential. In Sofiah's presence one feels her grace, strength and sensuality as she invites you to get out of your head and into your body.

As a daughter of parents who are also healers and teachers, and as an interdisciplinary artist with a B.A. in Dance Therapy and Performing Arts from Naropa University, studies at the Tamalpa Institute in Expressive Healing Arts, and a myriad of trainings in Bodywork, Yoga and Dance, Sofiah's deep understanding of the body shines through her work. Her experience and collaboration with certain key mentors laid the groundwork and sparked a deep sense of inspiration. In Colorado, she studied with Melissa Michaels, immersing herself in the foundation of the 5Rhythms. In L.A. she studied with other great masters such as Shiva Rea, Max Strom, Kenny Graham and Mark Whitwell within the yoga world and Anna Halprin, Vinn Marti and Barbara Dilley in the dance world.

Today, Sofiah combines dance, yoga, expressive healing arts and ritual into her work and has appeared as a performing artist and workshop facilitator at international events over the past ten years including the Bali Spirit Festival, Bhakti Fest, Earth Dance, and Wanderlust to name a few. She has been featured in Yogi Times, Conscious Dancer and Elephant Journal. Sofiah lives and works in the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where she and her husband opened Danyasa™ Eco-Resort and Bamboo Yoga Play studio. In 2011 Sofiah, her husband and a small group of individuals founded Envision, which quickly burgeoned into a world reknown transformational festival offering Music, Art, Education and Sacred Movement in the raw nature of Costa Rica.

Danyasa™ Yoga and Expressive Arts programs provide vehicles for self discovery and transformation as well as opportunities to exercise and get your sweat on.

Sofiah is certified by Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT-200 yoga instructor. See more photos and other events by this presenter
