I first began practicing yoga with Sofia over five years ago. These private lessons are the highlight of my week! Sofia is a great teacher. She corrects gently and encourages often. She incorporates strengthening, stretching, and breathing to make yoga both invigorating and relaxing. My strength, flexibility and balance, both physically and mentally, have never been better! And I credit yoga with Sofia for this.
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!
