Hi,
I’m Sophie

I am not a gymnast and I don’t have a dancing background like a lot of yoga teachers.  In fact, I remember being pretty terrible at gymnastics at school.  

 

my life before yoga

For eight years I was working in TV on shows such as Spooks, Mr. Selfridge, Ashes to Ashes and Call the Midwife.  I was on set every day meeting incredible people, travelling all over, completely absorbed by the buzz of being part of a film set.  It was in some ways an amazing job, but in a lot of ways it was brutal.  I was working 90-hour weeks on short term contracts, always worrying about finding the next job. I have battled with insomnia since the age of 15 and in 2015 the job took its toll on me and I was signed off work.   I was exhausted and knew that my work had completely and utterly taken over my life.

 
 

 YOGA HAS CHANGED MY LIFE, AND I DON’T SAY THAT LIGHTLY.

How yoga changed my life

That’s where yoga came in.  I had started practicing yoga earlier that year, but didn’t really have the time to commit to it.  Suddenly quitting my job, I now had plenty of free time and I became obsessed! Yoga was everything I had needed for so long – it created balance in my life, it had this incredible effect on me where I felt so calm yet so energised at the same time, it made me feel strong and empowered, it gave me a space to find confidence, self-esteem and hope.  Hope that I would find my way in life, even though I had been feeling like everything around me was falling apart. The practice inspired me so much that pretty soon after quitting TV I knew I wanted to become a yoga teacher.

Why I Teach

I hope that through my yoga classes I can help you find the much needed balance that so many of us crave, I hope I can inspire you to turn your dreams into a reality and most of all I hope I can make you feel kick-ass and strong both physically and mentally…. both on and off your yoga mat.

Mentorship

New to teaching Yoga or thinking about becoming a yoga teacher? Let’s chat.  I spent so much of my time in the early days of my teaching journey trying to figure things out on my own with no idea where to start.  Feeling pretty lost, and at some points pretty terrified, I craved a mentor to help answer the millions of questions I had.
