Sophia began practicing yoga in 2005 when she injured her neck with too much grad school studying. She quickly fell in love with vinyasa, healing her body and building upon her extensive training in classical ballet. Yoga has been a source of restoration, strength, and inspiration through the many changes and challenges of Sophia’s life.
Sophia combines a mindful approach with attention to proper alignment and emotional awareness. Her classes are intended to rejuvenate and inspire her students through the challenging and joyful sequencing. She hopes her students will grow in their ability to love, hold compassion, and share grace towards their self and others.
Sophia is a 200-hour RYT with Yoga Medicine by Tiffany Cruikshank and Yoga Alliance. She is also enrolled in the 500 hour RYT program with Yoga Medicine and at Breathe Together Yoga.
Sophia is also a licensed clinical psychologist and has provided psychotherapy and coaching services since 2004. Now, in addition to traditional treatment modalities, Sophia offers a yoga-integrated approach to healing and personal growth.
Sophia and her family support the fight against human trafficking via the non-profit Freedom House.
