About

Founded in Philosophy, Informed by Anatomy

Yoga is a complex and multifaceted entity, one which often gets reduced to workouts and sun salutations when viewed through a Western lens. In our classes, the goal is to use Asana the way it was designed to be used by Patanjali – the father of Yoga; as a small part of something much larger, a stepping stone to understanding ourselves.

Join Sophie at 2pm on Mondays via ZOOM for a Hatha session. Hatha is one of the more accesible styles of yoga. Work with the breath, still your mind and encourage better energy flow throughout your body.

What to Expect

 

Hatha flow class usually begins with a warm up, followed by some sun salutations and a new flow each week, based on a theme. Each class is an hour in length, excluding savasana (the medative portion which usually lasts 10ish minutes) at the end of the class.

You will get more from these classes with a yoga mat or towel, some water and an open heart.

About Sophie O’Brien

Last year Sophie completed her Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour yoga teacher training in Goa, India. She studied Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, Acro, and Aerial Yoga.

‘Learning Yoga in it’s birthplace has gifted me a wonderful knowledge of the authentic practise, where focus was very much on the spiritual above the physical, and emphasis on Yogic philosophy was prevalent.’

-Sophie O’Brien

Since then, Sophie’s qualifications and knowledge have only been growing; she’s currently sitting on 34 hours of additional, certified, training, across a variety of topics (yoga therapy, body positive yoga, accessible yoga for all, mum and baby, kids yoga, trauma informed yoga, yoga for chronic pain/scoliosis/wrists/lower backs; to name a few), with her main focus being on anatomy. The spiritual and philosophical side of Yoga is wonderful, but when you apply anatomy and science to these concepts, and see how they physically translate in to our bodies and minds, that’s where the magic happens.

Sophie believes this magic is in all of us. Come and practise with her and you too will realise your power and potential.
