When I moved to Minneapolis from San Francisco…I tried countless classes at studios across the city and simply couldn’t find what I was looking for. Then, finally, I met Sofia. She is an incredibly talented instructor who brings the perfect blend of creativity, rigor, and spirit to her classes. I’ve been Sofia’s student for over two years, and her classes not only keep me centered, but have also become an essential part of my life in Minneapolis.
I started yoga to increase my flexibility and range of motion in joints. Before starting yoga [classes] with Sofia, knee surgery was only a short time away. I was unable to bend into a squat or even perform a simple runner’s lunge. After three years with Sofia, I can do a full squat (with zero knee pain), transition into crow pose then shoot my legs back into a plank position. Now that was the physical side of yoga. With Sofia’s guidance I am mentally in check, positive, and at calm with myself and my practice.
Sofia can balance a class so that it’s not boring for experienced practitioners or too challenging for someone just starting. It’s rare to find a teacher who genuinely cares about you as much as what they are teaching. Thank you, Sofia!
