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 â€“ 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.
