Hi, I'm sofia...
I'm a certified somatic coach, yoga, yoga nidra & iRest teacher and appreciator of deep connected rest.
After 10 years of practice (living in traditional ashrams and practicing in studios) and 5 years teaching, I find myself working with various tools including yoga asana (poses), pranayama (breath work), yoga nidra (a form of guided meditation, used to relieve stress, decrease anxiety, improve sleep and more) as well as somatic coaching practices.
Combining these approaches helps my clients (and myself!) navigate their nervous system (stress response) and connect to the innate wisdom of the body, so they can finally feel worthy of rest and relaxation, and reignite their passion and purpose.
I am deeply passionate about deconstructing toxic productivity mindset!! For me and my practice/ teaching, this means exploring our need to be ‘doing’ something always, and normalising rest and self care as every day (not indulgent) human needs.
Aside from that I love house plants, learning and helping people. I also have two cute cats that remind me daily what it's like to rest guilt-free.
what they're saying
'Sofia's retreat was just what I needed to unwind from daily life. The location was fabulous, calming and serene. And Sofia's gentle flows and luscious yoga nidra restored my tired body and left my mind well rested and renewed...'

Sofia is an amazing teacher making every class so interesting, enjoyable, accessible whatever your level, and fun. I just love and look forward to both classes every week, the Slow Flow and a more active session, which are quite different to each other, and as a result I’m feeling physically stronger, appreciating the calm that yoga brings to my life...'
