At the heart of Sonia's musical expression is a belief in the power of music to heal and awaken consciousness. She studied Lhamo, Tibetan Opera singing, at the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts in Mcleod Ganj, India, which profoundly impacted her understanding of music. Sonia's journey includes touring worldwide, offering concerts and sound baths, teaching workshops in retreats and festivals, and facilitating music in ceremonial and sacred spaces.

Drawing on her personal experience, she recognized the potency of the voice as a transformative tool for processing and alchemizing pain through creativity and expression. To share this, Sonia developed a course called "Activating the Voice." Rooted in exploring the historical depths of one's voice through embodied vocalization practices, the course empowers individuals to tap into the joy of singing and embrace authentic and brave self-expression. Sonia passionately extends her teachings to groups through online courses and also works closely with private clients, offering personalized sessions. Additionally, she leads international singing and healing retreats, creating immersive experiences for those seeking deeper connections with and through music.
