Sophie first practiced yoga when she visited India for 9 months in 1988. Over the years she studied in various traditions: Ashtanga, Sivananda, & BKS Iyengar qualifying as a teacher in 2006. In 2006 she met Bridget Woods Kramer and from then on dedicated her practice and teaching to the Anusara Method of Yoga. Sophie teaches regular classes in London at The Light Centre and Triyoga and one to one private sessions. She also teaches workshops and retreats abroad. Sophie teaches with a rare combination of clarity, strength and gentleness. She maintains her greatest teachers have been her injuries from skiing and horse riding accidents which resulted in knee and hip surgery: “Yoga was a vital part of my recovery process and it was then that I truly appreciated the far-reaching effects of yoga on the mind, body and spirit. As I recovered from my surgery, I learned about humility and patience as my body slowly healed”.
