SH Central Plaza, Shanghai, Hong Kong


Sophie is a devoted yoga communicator who has been practising yoga from 2009 and teaching yoga from 2013. As a Hatha and Universal yoga practitioner, she was dissatisfied with the progress of her postures, so she gradually turned to meditation and yoga therapy. “When I am with yoga, I am a part of nature, part of life. I feel the closest with the Divine.” Teaching yoga is Sophie’s first job and is also now a lifelong career. Every year, she goes to Bali to study yoga for self-improvement. She tries to share the recognised system of yoga and her personal years of practice with students in a scientific, simple and accurate way in order to help them become heathier and happier. Sophie’s yoga classes focus on the alignment of the body and calming of the mind, the connection between breath and nature. She often says, “Always remind yourself that you are beautiful and you are adorable. You are full of vitality, energy and perseverance.” Qualifications • Yoga Alliance 200 RYT, 2013 • Hot Yoga, 2014 • Universal Yoga, 2016 • Birthlight Post-Natal Yoga, 2017 • Nidra Yoga, 2018 • Happy Digestion, 2019
