Sophie's appetite for Yoga came in 2004 mainly to help recover from injuries and general wear and tear from years of dancing but during a short space of time Yoga soon became more than a hobby and more of purposeful direction to overall wellness. Upon returning to New Zealand in 2009, Sophie continued to further her knowledge and connection to mindful movement while studying a therapy based Yoga course with Wellpark College of Natural Therapies, completing a Diploma in Yoga, Yoga instructors course in Ayurveda life style and massage and a Psychology of stress management dip. Sophie says's:
"I believe the key components to a wonderful life are happy hips and a clear head space. I love expressing myself on the mat, shredding through external layers looking beyond imperfections and dysfunctions, getting to the real good stuff on the inside. Losing any inhibitions on the way through movement and embracing and freeing all the colors within. I'm crazy about Yoga and the uniqueness of what it brings to each person who practices this healing art form."
Sophie mainly teaches through out Auckland at Abundance Mind Body Studio and Yoga Sanctuary. Check out her blog or to find out where to take her class: www.bodypoised.com
