‘I became determined to retrain my body and regain my strength after an illness caused me to lose my mobility for a period of time. I have subsequently spent over 400 hours undertaking yogic qualifications, 2 years studying Natural Science and Aromatherapy Massage and have trained students to become teachers on a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Course. As a result, I am able to enjoy a level of health that I never could have imagined. This is why I love teaching advanced students and guiding pupils into their next posture and also why my heart will always lie with every beginner, who sees touching their toes as an impossibility or yoga as something totally out of their physical capability. I am fortunate enough to have taught and practiced massage therapy in some of the world’s leading studios/clinics and to now have returned home, where I continue to learn and share about models of health and wellbeing that fascinate and excite me.’ – Sophia
