About me

“Sophie’s journey started in Germany in 1997 when she entered a Yoga class while barely speaking German. She discovered Yoga guided by her heart. Her teacher introduced her also to the principle of Ayurveda: Know yourself to adjust lifestyle and diet with the seasons.

In 2004, shortly after moving to United States, She decided to become a Yoga teacher. She is registered with Yoga Alliance at E-RYT-500 level.

On her journey to learn the yogic principles, Sophie discovered that Ayurveda emphasizes the connection with Mother Earth, whereas Yoga emphasizes the connection with the Divine. From this realization, Sophie included both practices into her life to optimize health and Wellbeing. She also gained joy and contentment.

She turned toward Vedic healing to combine Ayurveda with her teaching of Yoga. Through this process, she learned how to adjust Yoga according to each person’s needs. In addition Sophie is a certified Laughter Yoga leader and Grief Yoga® Teacher. Health is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. These two last trainings gave her tools to offer a unique support to women, particularly in the transition in life (menopause, divorce, empty nest)
