Dear Sophia, Thank you for a deeply relaxing session on Friday. I had a deep sleep and felt relaxed and warm and good in my body all Saturday. Also, my cold from the week has got better. I like your lovely equipment and the hall, too. All in all a super experience!" Uly
"Very nice atmosphere. Great equipment. Sophia did a great session, very enjoyable!" Feedback Survey
"I found the first part difficult to focus on breathing only, and then to continue focusing on the breathing throughout the poses. But by the end, my aches and pains were virtually gone and I felt wonderful!" Feedback Survey

"Yoga with Sophia is unlike any I have tried before. She is fabulous at working with where both your mind and body are at in any session. Once, when both mind and body said "No", she switched tac mid session and in doing so kept our hearts in the process. As a result, Yoga isn't something I feel I should do, but something I absolutely love to do". Paul

"Thank you Sophia, Taya really loves your yoga classes and she feels relaxed and full of energy before the school.
Also, I have no issue to wake her up on Thursday morning as she is really happy to go for the class :) "
"Sophia ran an excellent interactive yoga session for our Beaver colony. Getting 24 Beavers to focus, concentrate and move their bodies into different positions was no problem for her, and in the calm and stillness at the end of the session you could have heard a pin drop! The Beavers really enjoyed it and I would thoroughly recommend her sessions". Nicola Chetwynd-Stapylton Beaver Scout leader, 1st Weston Green

"Sophia came highly recommended to me by colleagues who knew of her work in local primary and secondary schools.
She has proved to be an inspirational, gentle and holistic yoga teacher who focuses on meeting the needs of all students in a highly intuitive, engaging and professional manner. Sophia has taught students how to manage stress, how to reflect on change and how to manage their emotions through carefully structured activities, which she calibrates each lesson so that she meets the needs of students in each group. Students respond well to her intelligent, reflective style, which promotes both psychological as well as physical wellbeing. Sophia is careful to alternate the activities, which can involve reflective thinking/discussion, reading short extracts from philosophical texts, physical exercise and relaxation exercises.
I feel very privileged to be able to take part in the yoga lessons and often use the ideas I have learned in my own discussions with students. I cannot recommend Sophia highly enough. I am certain that your students (and staff) will benefit enormously from inviting her into your school".
