Sonia has been an exercise enthusiast all her life and was a dancer up until her college years. She found Pilates briefly in the early 2000’s; however, after being on bed rest for a difficult pregnancy, she lost so much strength in her core, and she ended up with several disk herniation's, which limited her activities drastically. Following rehab and pain management procedures, she was able to start exercising again, but she still wasn’t becoming as strong as she needed to be. Sonia always kept Pilates in the back of her mind but was skeptical it could really help. When the Club Pilates Towne Lake studio opened in July 2017, she decided to take a chance and became a member. After just a few classes, she couldn’t believe how much better her whole body felt. She loved going about her day feeling more balanced, flexible, and stronger. She didn’t hurt anymore and felt more in tune with her body than every before! Pilates has had such a positive influence on everything she does, and because she knew how much it changed her life, she wanted to help others learn how Pilates could change their lives.

She graduated from Texas A&M University in 1995 with a B.A. in English and History and worked in the healthcare documentation field for many years with over 12 of them as a Performance Coach in quality control.
