Sophie's presence is a breath of fresh air. An old soul with a bright heart. Sophie leads a Class that is raw, energetic, and full of spunk. She will leave you feeling joyful and closer to yourself.
Sophie’s story truly begins around 11 when she baffled educators and doctors alike. She could not read. With no one explanation for what was happening to her, she began a long, winding journey of schooling, testing, and thousands of hours at a learning center. Her frustration led to anxiety, so she was intuitively guided to begin yoga and experiment with different movement exercises to help her not only cope with frustration, but to also explore ways that she could express herself physically – in a way that language could never address.
Moving and connecting with her body healed her. Within four years and through tireless work, Sophie flipped the script on those who doubted her and became a better reader, writer, and learner than she ever imagined. Her mindbody approach changed her path, so she is inspired to share those possibilities with others.
Her 500hr Ishta yoga certification and background in personal training are just the beginning of her path. After finding The Class by Taryn Toomey in early 2017, Sophie immediately identified with Taryn's philosophy of self-awareness, confidence in movement, and mind-body connection. The Class has become an awe-inspiring part of Sophie’s lifestyle.
