Sophia Rose (she/her) first felt what it was like to exist in her body when she took a yoga class at 9 years old. Since then, she has been drawn to the healing arts in all of its forms. Sophia began her journey as a professional healing practitioner in 2020 when she was certified as a Reiki Practitioner, taught by Maleata Ragin of Heal to Live LLC. Sophia uses this Japanese energy healing modality, her intuition, and an innate sense of compassion for all living things to support physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing in herself and her clients. Sophia has recently received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate with Studio 34 in March 2023; this energized Sophia to return to her own body, the most tangible site for reflection and healing from past traumas. As a yoga teacher, Sophia is most inspired by therapeutic and trauma-informed practices, Ayurvedic yoga, Chakra-healing yoga, Vinyasa flow, and Yin. As a long-time nanny and protector of children, Sophia aims to foster a safe, creative, and playful environment in her yoga classes that encourages people of all ages to connect with their younger selves and approach wholeness of Self.
