Sonia Tomioka Toutain

Graduated from the University of Sao Paolo (USP - Brazil) in Physical and Sports Education - Psychology and Physiotherapy. As a teacher of Ashtanga Yoga, she guides this part of the program which also includes meditation. In the 1990s Sonia spent more than four years in the Founder's Dojo in Iwama, Japan with Saito Sensei, with whom she was very close. Being of Japanese descent, she was responsible for transmitting Japanese culture to practitioners from around the world, who stayed at the Iwama Dojo. Holder of the third dan of Iwama, her experience allows her to adapt  the exercises of Ashtanga Yoga in a specific and very progressive way, to the Wanomichi program in which she participates.
