Sonja Stoeckli

Born in Switzerland, Sonja was introduced to yoga nearly 40 years ago on a visit to England. Inspired, she found a deeper awareness for life and started her own yoga practice several years later. A student of many inspirational teachers who instilled in her the love of different aspects of yoga, she experienced a deeper compassion a belief in herself for the first time in her life. She found a doorway to her soul that opened the love and strength in her body to become an inspirational teacher herself.

Celine Burns

Celine moved to Richmond from New York City in 2009, after working as a STOTT- certified Pilates apparatus & matwork instructor on Madison Avenue.
In Richmond, she rediscovered yoga and the art of mindfulness intrinsic to the practice. Seeking to deepen her knowledge of anatomy and mind-body instruction, Celine earned her 200-hour teaching training through YogaWorks.
Compassion is at the heart of her teaching, as she works both with Beginners and Special Populations, helping to lay a strong foundation for building their practice. As an instructor, Celine hopes that her students experience great freedom in yoga— the flow of energy that allows for creativity, self-expression and ultimately, peace of mind.
“I want to make yoga as accessible to as many people as possible. In an ideal world, I want for everyone to experience yoga, in a safe and encouraging environment that also facilitates self-reflection. You move through the challenges of yoga, as you move through the challenges of life.”
“My father always told me that my heart would lead me to my career.” Quoting Confucious, “If you find something you love to do, you never have to work a day in your life.” That certainly couldn’t be more true.

Laura Strukle

Laura Strukl is excited to be a part of the Spiritual Flow Yoga Studio family. She started taking yoga classes in High School to compliment her extensive dance background. As she continued studying both dance and yoga into her college years, she sought to deepen her physical and spiritual understanding of yoga through the YogaWorks teacher training program. Currently a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University, Laura enjoys teaching beginner and gentle yoga classes. Practicing from a perspective of strengthening, stretching, and safe alignment, Laura hopes her students are able to release the tension that builds up in our bodies,and as a result, our minds as well.

Mindy Peters

Mindy Peters is a RYT 200-hour certified instructor trained through the YogaWorks program. She began her yoga journey 16 years ago when she enrolled in a prenatal yoga class to prepare for the birth of her first child. “Though I took childbirth classes and read many books, it was the breathing and relaxation techniques I learned through yoga that helped me most in what turned out to be a difficult labor.”
Mindy continues to find inner strength in her yoga practice. She began teaching at Spiritual Flow in 2016. She delights in the progress of her students and believes strongly in the power of yoga to build healthier minds and bodies. “I’ve met many people who have transformed their lives through yoga. It offers us many tools through physical practice, breathing techniques and meditation to gain inner confidence and find healthier ways to manage stress.” Mindy welcomes beginners and seasoned practitioners alike to join her in her weekly Gentle Flow class, Wednesdays at 9:15am.
