Sophie is a fully qualified Active Birth Yoga teacher and Associate of the Active Birth Centre based in London. She has a long experience of prenatal yoga acquired through years of teaching to mothers-to-be in London and Brussels since 2008.
Working with Janet Balaskas and Alice Charlwood at the Active Birth Centre, taught her a lot about the virtues of a gentle and respectful approach to yoga when teaching pregnant women.
In her continuing interest in supporting women to experience pregnancy, birth and motherhood as unique paths, she has also qualified in teaching restorative postnatal yoga and trained with renowned teachers such as Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. Sophie also trained as a hypnobirthing practionner to offer the pregnant women and couples she works with poweful tools to guide them through their birthing exerience.
Sophie's personnal yoga practice is inspired by the legacy of the late Vanda Scaravelli. Scaravelli yoga is particularly relevant during pregnancy: using gravity and the breath, women feel more grounded, the spine is freed and space can be made in the body for lightness.
