Sophie’s classes create freedom in the body and mind, allowing you to soften and experience expansive stillness. She brings extensive anatomical knowledge and bio-mechanical understanding of alignment to her instruction, allowing students to open in ways they didn't think they could!
Sophie challenges people to re-awaken their muscles and work tenaciously, she supports students in cultivating deep physical awareness with an underlying emphasis on self-care and the therapeutic benefit of each pose. Fluid, dynamic sequencing is balanced with restorative postures, and students are encouraged to move with full breath and uplifting intention.
TAILORED TO YOU
Classes are tailored to the client’s body and health, ranging from invigorating and physically absorbing Vinyasa flows to deep soothing stretches that help safely cultivate strength, coordination, and flexibility.
Sophie puts great focus on breath control to soothe the nervous system (Pranayama), as well as deep muscle engagement to tone connective tissue (Bandas), and meditative movements to calm the mind. Most importantly she aims to empower people through developing their ability to relax.
