Sofia grew up attending dance school, where her love for embodying movement & expression grew. Growing up immersed in the world of her mum’s offerings she would often be involved with kids yoga, swimming lessons & more from an early age. Once she left school she returned to the French Alps, her family’s first home, so she could follow in her parents footsteps with ski seasons & be surrounded by mountains & nature snowboarding & fun.
Soon after she discovered the seasonal life of music festival work, where for part of the year she enjoys a nomadic lifestyle, surrounded by music, texture, art & field living, able to dance often & always meeting & sharing with new people.
Assisting with yoga workshops & retreats since her mother Sandra began them almost 10 years ago, it naturally came to a time where Sofia wished to start delving deeper into yoga’s path to hold a better understanding of it’s roots. She started her courses & teacher training in India at the start of 2016 & began holding offerings soon after.
Having especially enjoyed courses with Uma Dinsmore Tuli ~ ‘Womb Yoga & women’s wellness therapy’ & about to continue this with Uma’s pregnancy yoga course, continuing her journey into how yoga can support all stages & transitions within a womans life. She will soon be training in mother & baby yoga to coincide her work with her pregnancy & baby mama life to come.
