Yogis sometimes forget that yoga practice is not just about the amount of sweat that drips onto their mats. Sofia’s style of teaching reminds her students of the depth and dimension yoga has to offer. She will make her students sweat but she will also make them flow correctly. The precision of movement and posture, the power of breath, and intense focus are all variables that Sofia instills in her students. You walk away from one of her classes having discovered something new about your practice and, in turn, something new about the way your body works.
Sofia is creative in developing exercises, routines and movements suited to the individual. I have Parkinson’s Disease and every day, sometimes even hour by hour, my energy level and mobility/balance change drastically. She is excellent at accommodating a wide range of energy and abilities in the moment. She adapts with ease and is very focused. Sofia emphasizes breathing in her sessions, which helps me immensely. She has a positive outlook and a great sense of humor. Her sense of calm is contagious.
