Hi, I'm Sophie...
I have practised yoga and meditation for the last 8 years.
Why did I choose Yoga?
Initially I was just curious but after a few weeks of classes I realised that I felt calmer and more able to deal with difficult or stressful situations.
My passion for and interest in yoga then led me to start training in Raja Dhiraja Ashtaunga. This is the most complete all round systematic and scientific process for development of the mind, body and soul. I completed my training and attained a Diploma from the Himalayan Yoga Institute.
What are the ambitions of The Lotus School Of Yoga?
My hope and ambition in teaching yoga is to transform my students, inside and out. Correct alignment through asana (yoga postures) is the key to creating harmony and balance in the body. Pranayama (breathing and meditation) are the keys to inner peace and tranquility of the mind and spirit.
I also teach these asanas with a vinyassa (flow) when I feel this would benefit the class as a whole.
