Hi! My name is Sophie, I am a Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness consultant with 22 years of experience.
My journey started in Germany in 1997 when I entered a Yoga class while barely speaking German. I discovered Yoga guided by the heart. My teacher introduced me also to the principles of Ayurveda: “Know yourself, adjust lifestyle and diet with the seasons. Be whole.” It is still today my motto.
Ayurveda emphasizes the connection with Mother Earth, whereas Yoga emphasizes the connection with the Divine. Yoga helps us to become a better person but Ayurveda helps us to know who we are.
I practice daily what I teach. It is my dharma to be a teacher and it is from my heart that I share my knowledge with you. My purpose is to give you the tools to have an optimal health and live with mindfulness.
