Sophie-Rae visited India as a young girl and it has always had a lasting effect on her. Sophie-Rae went on to study Holistic Therapies and has been working for the last 10 years within the industry, teaching massage and wellbeing. She has an insightful and knowledgeable understanding of the human body, as well as the nature of the mind and our emotional system and the manifestations that are stored within us as a result.
Like many of us, Sophie found yoga when she most needed it. Having practiced on and off for many years and always enjoying the internal space that the practice gave her, it wasn’t until she stumbled upon Jivamukti yoga, that she really found her own practice and a deeper sense of self.
Sophie-Rae first experienced a Jivamukti class with Andrea Everingham who has since been and will continue to be a guiding light and mentor within her own yoga journey and in her teaching. Jivamukti Yoga has given Sophie-Rae so much so more than she could have ever expected; a deeper understanding of the Self, a better sense of body and mind, a kinder and more conscious way of living and a philosophy that can be practiced both on and off of the mat.
After practicing for a year with Jivamukti Yoga, Sophie-Rae decided she wanted to deepen her own practice further and went on the complete her 300 hour teacher training with Jivamukti Yoga in February 2017, studying under Jivamukti co-founder Sharon Gannon, Jules Febre and Yogeswari.
Combined with Sophie-Rae’s experience of teaching massage and exploring the nature of the Self both through her holistic career and her yoga, Sophie-Rae’s style of teaching is compassionate, light-hearted, breath centered and open. She hopes to be able to inspire and encourage her students in the same way that he teachers have for her and to unravel the layers of the self, to reach a state of peace and ease, both in the mind and the body.
She provides a class that is light, engaging and accepting of who you are and where you are, both on and off the mat.
