Sojourner Walker Williams
A few words about my journey......
Drawing from my experiences as a Reiki Master, Akashic Records Reader, Thai Bodywork Practitioner, Ayurvedic Consultant and Kemetic Alchemical Healer, I intuitively integrate a variety of healing modalities during my sessions. I like to draw upon crystals and essential oils and being intuitive, I often have insights to share during sessions.
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 have completed my 500-hour certification.
I wrote a book called “Natural Beauty from the Outside In” (Globe Pequot Publishers) that’s coming out in the Fall of 2021. Part recipe book and part travelogue, “Natural Beauty from the Outside In” chronicles my many international adventures where I’ve drawn inspiration for many of my 100% natural and family-friendly body care product recipes. “Natural Beauty from the Outside In” is available for preorder HERE.
Currently based in New York and Washington DC, I lead Reiki Level 1,2, and Mastery trainings, offer mentorship services to healers and yoga teachers and provide a variety of coaching and healing services. I also teach private and group classes via ZOOM. See upcoming ways to connect with me HERE.
