Sophia Lawrence

Sofia’s teaching emphasizes how even the smallest shifts in our minds and bodies can have a profoundly positive impact on how we live our lives. Her alignment-based classes build heat slowly and uncover how seemingly simple postures, when explored with intention, stir up endless goodness in our bodies. Sofia is honored to support her students and their pups as they use yoga to move, giggle, and play in a safe and loving space.

Sofia discovered yoga in 2010 while living in Brevard, NC and working as the Staff Director for a traditional, residential summer camp serving girls ages 6-16. Sofia noticed that many of the young women in her care struggled to adequately describe the emotional landscape of their lives. Many were also disconnected to the nuanced sensations within their bodies. Where spoken language left off,  yoga became a tool for Sofia to help others explore, reflect, and integrate the lessons of their lives.

 

Through Kelly Golden and Vira Bhava Yoga, Sofia was certified in 2018 in the tantra yoga tradition. Tantra teaches its students to weave all aspects of themselves and their experience into their yoga practice. Subsequently, this philosophy encourages students to love themselves in the entirety of who they are.

Sofia is grateful for her amazing partner, Lyle, who brings so much levity and joy into her life that it flows directly into her teaching style, and for her dog, Coach, who always teaches her new stretches to access the body. Sofia is beyond humbled to be a part the Woofinwaggle family!
