HI, I'M SOPHIE!
I’m a creative 30something from Birmingham who needed to break free from the office world to help spread sunshine, Yoga and Art to you lovely people and just enjoy what I do!!
I'm a fully qualified Yoga Teacher (RYT 200 hrs), YogaKidz Children's Yoga Teacher (YogaKidz Worldwide), Facial Massage Therapist (Guild of Holistic Therapists) and Illustrator (BA hons).
The Art Life. I’m an illustrator who loves children’s illustration and creating beautiful Yoga paintings from the heart. I love watercolour and acrylics, lots of colour, mandala patterns, flowers, crystals, animals and the human body. My style of art is fairly feminine and always evolving.
When I am at my most relaxed and happy, my art work is free, relaxed and happy too!
The Yoga Life. I first started Yoga around 8 years ago as a form of exercise, attending a weekly Vinyasa class with my mom and over the years have delved deeper into the spiritual and philosophical side of Yoga, which lead to me doing my Yoga Teacher Training in 2017-2018. Yoga is so personal and each person’s journey is different, even if some of the ‘problems’ seem the same, we all react and cope differently. No one will ever experience the same Yoga practice and we will all come to it with our own thoughts, feelings, worries, actions, past ideas and future unknowns. I love teaching Yoga and holding space for people to explore the different elements of Yoga and whatever they need in that moment.
My Yoga practice has grown so much over the years, from initially being just for ‘exercise’, to now being a spiritual practice. Yes I still LOVE the physical practice. It makes my body strong and flexible but it also helps release SOMETHING that allows me to continue to love myself and spread happiness.
Yoga has made me see my body in a totally different light.
This is why I chose to be a Yoga Teacher.
To help people to move a little easier through this thing called life and find their sunshine, creativity, self-exploration, reconnection and healing.
My favourite bit is when people first lie down and let out the biggest sigh or exhale,
like their Yoga mat has just given them a big hug and said "It's ok, you're safe now. Let it out!".
In 2018 I qualified as a Children's Yoga Teacher through YogaKidz Worldwide. I love working with children because they are so spontaneous and carefree. They are natural Yogis! Yoga helps them to keep that or at least reconnect with this natural freedom and playfulness. As they start to get older, they lose it and become more self-conscious, just like I did! Kids need a yoga practice more than ever now, to help guide them and equip them with the skills they need to navigate their way through this fast paced, externally stimulating world.
I am KOOKY, SILLY, SHY, YOUNG AT HEART, SUNNY, A FRIEND and A GOOD LISTENER!
