Hatha yoga, a mixture of classical with creative flows, with Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Self Enquiry. Beginners, mixed level and Intermediate.

Sophie is a mother, gardener, yoga teacher, free form dancer, Shiatsu massage therapist, Permaculturist, committed cyclist and earth activist.
Her teaching style is meditative, focusing on the feel of the whole class, leading students into a deep state of inner listening, where you are encouraged to learn and discover for yourself. Having studied anatomy and physiology from both Western and Eastern perspectives, she teaches a safe but strong class, where you come to understand the needs and tendencies of your individual body/mind, and practice accordingly.
Aware of the pitfalls of practicing repetitive, misaligned and competitive movements, she encourages students to see Yoga from the larger perspective – making Peace with yourself, including your body!
Sophie sees yoga as a spiritual path which takes the individual on a fascinating and exploratory journey through life, a way of health, balance and wonder. It gives you a context in which to connect with your core values, developing your sense of inner ethics and aligning your outlook and actions with what you really, truely feel to be important in life.

We find Sophie conveys integrity in her yoga classes which brings a very positive experience of the fullness of what yoga can offer. We gain a real sense of calm and her classes put perspective on life. She has introduced us to partner yoga which we really enjoy and is great fun.

I attended Sophie’s antenatal classes from 16-26 weeks pregnant.

Sophie is a gentle soul. Her class comes from her heart. If its not authentic to her she doesn’t go there. She gives you permission to be who you are….. with and without words. She is a guiding hand to lead you back to yourself….

I have been going to Sophie’s classes now for a few years. I have been practicing Yoga for 20 years and a good Yoga teacher is hard to find. Sophie really delivers where others do not. Her approach is consistent, varied, heartfelt, spiritual and deeply relaxing with some challenges along the way – but we are encouraged always to listen to ourselves and adapt as necessary to ensure the experience is maximised, supported and appropriate for individual needs. Sophie is excellent at being able to confidently and sensitively hold the Yoga space and guides the class dependent on the energy… Read more »

Sophie is an amazing yoga teacher. I’ve experienced many others and she is one of the few who truly embodies the practice and expertly guides the rest of us to join her on the yoga path. No matter age or gender, Sophie is a very special teacher for all.
