Sophie’s classes create freedom in the body and mind, allowing each individual to soften and experience expansive stillness. She brings extensive anatomical knowledge and a bio-mechanical understanding of alignment to her instruction, allowing each student to open in ways they didn't think they could! Fluid, dynamic sequencing is balanced with restorative postures, as students are encouraged to move with full breath and uplifting intention. Whilst challenging her students to re-awaken their muscles and work tenaciously, she also supports them in cultivating deep physical awareness with an underlying emphasis on self-care and the therapeutic benefit of each pose. Sophie completed her Hatha and Vinyasa 200-hour training in Nicaragua and has been dedicated to teaching since, completing further training with mentors Leila Sadeghee, Katie Appleton, Tara Judelle, Sianna Sherman and Hala Kouri, through which she deeply integrated the Anusara method into her teachings. She is also trained to teach Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, Antenatal and Postnatal Yoga and specialises in Yoga for Trauma and Stress. She is great believer in giving the body and mind space and time to recalibrate, finding these subtle moments of rest to be the most transformative. Most importantly she aims to empower people through developing their ability to ground, release and relax. Sophie is also a gifted Reflexologist, specialising in Antenatal and Postnatal Reflexology, Meditation Teacher, Healer, and Artist. Appreciated for her warmth and peaceful spirit, Sophie is wholeheartedly dedicated to improving people's quality of life for the long term, just as Yoga has done for her.
