Bom dia, I’m Soraya, a Portuguese, borned and raised in Geneva. After 10 years abroad (Paris and Rio de Janeiro), I came back in August 2015 to open a Movement Studio. In the past, I was formed in Fashion Business. I worked as a journalist, then as a digital marketing manager, to finally become a Yoga teacher.

I’m passionate with sport and movement.


Can you tell more about your activity ?

My studio is located in Pâquis at 5min from the train station and the lake of Geneva. The place offer a mix of disciplines : Yoga, African Dance, Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, Core Training. There is also a bar and a boutique. Studio SoHam is a place of sharing and learning.

Several times per year we organize Yoga retreats in inspiring and resourful locations. Last time we went to Cascais in Portugal, and we are planning to make new ones in Brazil and Thailand.

In Geneva, we are quite engaged in environmental protection. Business are obliged to sort out their waste subject to fines. And the private individual are aware of the environmental issues.


How do you integrate tourism and sustainability at the same time?

I organize Yoga retreats around the world. It’s important for us to take care of the places where we stay. We try to participate in the environmental issues as clean out the beach, sort out the food, plastic and metal in the house, or organize an event in this way.


Why do you partner with My Green Trip?

My Green Trip is engaged not only with their actions, but especially by their passion and love for the world.


Do you have a special news currently?

From May to December, Studio SoHam will organize some retreats in Portugal, Senegal and Brazil with My Green Trip, of course.
