As I write this I am aware of the newfound energy coursing through my body. It is hard for me to fathom that just 3 months ago, I was constantly in pain, sluggish and well aware of my body telling me that it was dying. My mental acuity had been sharply declining, my moods were erratic and I no longer enjoyed living. I didn't trust that I was able to take good care of my body. Every time I ate I felt sick. I am only 29! I finally admitted to myself that I didn't have the knowledge to care for myself and needed the best help I could afford. I was fortunate enough to find Sonali. She has single-handedly given me my life back. It is so unusual to me that by knowing her and listening to her sage advice through our half hour meetings, I am enjoying and engaging in life again. My body is free from pain. It has begun healing itself more effectively. I have more energy than I have had since my insulin resistance diagnosis (5 years ago). I enjoy food again (She has expanded my horizons on what food actually is). I feel nourished and satisfied in a way that food has never satisfied me before. I feel like I am in control of my appetite instead of it controlling me. I am so much more in tune with what my body needs. I am also at peace. My journey with Sonali has put me on a path of healing that expands well beyond food. The energy I have now with my new way of living has allowed me to pursue endeavors that feed my physical, spiritual, and financial wellbeing. She has treated me with kindness that I have never known when it comes to this part of my life. She was gentle, yet strong in her approach and her compassion abounds. She was just my steadfast teacher. Free of judgement and an excellent listener. Her work brings tears to my eyes when I think about what life looked like for me a year ago. She has given me back my life. From the depths of my soul, Thank you Sonali.
I have known Sonali for years and her core personality is one of humility and servant leadership as a teacher. Her teaching style is very nurturing and intuitive in supporting student needs while creating a very safe learning environment. Many areas of my life have improved under Sonali’s instruction. Her yoga classes are very well organized as she provides a flow of instruction guiding student experience. Special need requests are accommodated as the class progresses to the end with calming closure. Sonali demonstrates great mastery over the material and is able to clarify learning for students with questions. I always learn something new or am reminded of something I had forgotten. She consistently meets my expectations of creating a wonderful class experience. Another area of personal growth I have experienced under Sonali’s teaching involves communication and relationship building skills. She has extensive training in this area and is highly effective teaching it. Under her instruction, students learn how to create emotional safe space that is real and non-threating while building deeper trust. As a result of sessions with Sonali, I have successfully incorporated new skills into my life and have enhanced the quality and satisfaction of my relationships. One specific practice called mirroring was especially helpful to me. I was in a conversation that was quickly escalating with stressful comments and counter-comments alternating between being accusing then defensive. I remembered the mirroring skill and focused specifically on repeating what the other party was telling me. Feeling heard instead of feeling defensive, quickly de-escalated the tension between us. A conversation that was heading for unresolved disaster redeemed itself with a healthy mutual understanding. Sonali’s communication training works in the real world and I highly recommend it.
With Sonali’s coaching, I have learned how to manage my emotions and energy in a better way during conversations with people. I learned how to understand and feel what others say and not just hear it. Sonali’s coaching has helped me better communicate and connect with my partner and better understand my friends and family when I am speaking with them. At work I feel more able to communicate my ideas and thoughts with my colleagues and team. She has also expanded my understanding of myself and my personality and how to interpret the internal dialogue that is happening within me. New relationship skills that I am going to practice for the rest of my life as a result of working with Sonali is how to Listen/Understand/Feel the other person and make sure I got what the other person is expressing. Life is a continues learning process, specially learning and enhancing our abilities and skills for ourselves, for others and for a bigger cause that can serve our purpose in life. I was super surprised when Coach Sonali opened my eyes about something I never understood/knew before about my personality. This thing has been affecting my entire life and every aspect of my life. With Sonali’s guidance, I finally understood that I have an empath personality. She educated me on what that means and it made total sense to me about how I used to get affected by so many things happening around me and I didn’t know why! Because of Sonali, I have this new awareness about myself and it has changed my life for better. I totally recommend Sonali for anyone who want to make enhancements to their lives. Just within a very short period working with Sonali, I understood so many things that I didn’t know before about me and my personality and my abilities. Sonali opened my eyes to things I never noticed before and really appreciate that I found her and totally recommend Sonali’s coaching to everyone who wants to make his/her/their life better! Sonali, will listen to you, understand you, feel you and guide you. Thanks Sonali!

I have so much gratitude for Sonali's conscious communication and relationship skills building class. I have been attending Sonali’s classes for over a year and it has made a huge impact in my life. The communication portion of her class focused on Imago techniques has honestly transformed the way I approach all my relationships, from family to work to loved ones to random people I encounter. I feel I am so much better at listening, at being in control of my responses, noticing how my nervous system is affected by my surroundings, and being a compassionate and supportive friend who communicates clearly and can truly hold space for someone. Sonali is a rare person who teaches and facilitates with confidence, strength, openness, and love. This is her passion, her lifestyle, her way of existing and it is such a gift for her to share it with clients and students. She has a firm sense of compassion for humanity and a drive for justice that guides all of her interactions and her work as a whole. Sonali inspires others to live that way too. I would recommend Sonali's coaching for anyone who is wishing to learn skills to kindly navigate tough conversations, become a more thoughtful friend or partner, or begin the process of stripping away the harmful modes of communication that are taught to us early in life in a society structured around capitalism.
I met Sonali in early 2019 after receiving an invite to her yoga practice through a mutual friend. After having just ended a particularly abusive and traumatic relationship in my life, I found myself in search holistic practices to reconnect to my body and foster healthier communication in all of my relationships, including with myself. I had little context for Sonali’s Tuesday evening gatherings, but a close friend spoke highly of the community that had developed and the ways in which she was experiencing a transformation in how she was able to make space and listen to others. I went, and have continued to develop my health and communication practices with Sonali ever since. She has challenged me physically in her yoga practice, as well as emotionally and intellectually within the Imago trainings. Sonali has an instructive and interactive approach to teaching, allowing students to retain the experiences of her lessons rather than just trying to memorize a particular formula. Human interactions are already complex, but they become even more layered while navigating through emotional responses. Sonali's integrative teaching accounts for this complexity by having us utilize and strictly adhere to underlying Imago principles while applying them to the immediate experiences of people with whom we are building community. This consistent, mutual engagement has allowed for people who have little basis for relationship to feel held, heard, and seen by each other. During sessions, we put a lot of effort into mirroring a persons experience by matching language and tone, and complementary non-verbal expressions. We do this to ensure that we are hearing as precisely as possible the message that is being conveyed, while engendering a sense of comfort and empathy. We mirror without contributing our own thoughts or judgments, and are able to create space to allow for further elaboration and clarification of what a person is saying so that we truly get it. Although this is only one part of Imago communication, I have been able to utilize this technique in several relationships outside of our community, in both personal and professional interactions ranging from topics like how someones day went to how someone is experiencing racialized otherness within a U.S. context. I have been able to cultivate safe, consensual moments of intentional sharing that has deepened and strengthened multiple relationships in my life. Imago communication coaching by Sonali has given me tools to regulate my physiological and emotional response while interacting with people different from me in ideology, identity, and background. Sonalis particular skill set includes implementing yoga and meditation to create calmness and self-connectedness before learning these strategies. She is a warm, thoughtful, confident, and commensurately assertive and firm instructor that gives feedback without condescension or blame. She successfully fosters an environment that encourages vulnerability and reflection week after week, and shares much of herself in the process. It has been a truly life-altering experience to be under her guidance and expertise; I would highly recommend working with Sonali if you are looking to find ways to become more present and compassionate in relationship to yourself and others.
Sonali has had an amazingly positive impact on my life over the 3 years that I have been her client. She has coached me in relational skills that are based on mutual respect and a deep desire to clearly understand and empathize with people. Sonali's communication coaching has helped me recognize some of my own biases and tendency to rush to offer advice often when none has been sought. My ability to not judge others and to empathize with them has been improved under her careful and skillful guidance. These relational skills benefit my life because I am better able to approach others with problems in ways that help them help me. Perhaps more important, I am better able to understand people who are having problems with me and to work with them so that I can help them. I am deeply grateful for all that she has taught me and for the support she has given me. I intend to continue as her client as long as possible. She also teaches yoga and the heart centered meditation that is at the core of true yogic practice, and it was in that role that I first met her. All of her students were struck by her infectious good nature and her ability to encourage us to do things we did not think we could do. She models the warmth and kindness and acceptance that we all hope to gain from meditation practice. She is, I believe, someone genuinely interested in making the world a better place through her teaching and by her actions. I strongly recommend that anyone interested in inner growth and improved relationships with others find a way to study with her.
Sonali's conscious communication coaching focused on the Imago dialogue has given me a nuanced understanding and practical skills with this life changing method. With her support, Ive been able to make Imago dialogue a regular part of my communication practice both personally and professionally. More broadly, with Sonali’s coaching, Ive been able to deepen connection in my relationships, show support to others more deeply and frequently, and ask for what I need, in ways that are viscerally evident. I’ve also benefited from Sonali’s wisdom and communication coaching focused on healthy boundaries, recovering from trauma and supporting others to do so, spirituality, and supporting others across differences amidst a world warped by systemic misogyny, racism, and heterosexism. Sonali is a gentle, patient, intuitive, loving, bold, and direct coach, all at once! I highly recommend her as a communication coach!
