Sophie's inspiration to dance

Sophie has had a life long fascination with dance that started in the front room of her family home aged 6, without realising it at the time, music, speakers and hours of dancing became her solace to troubled family life. She found gold on the psychedelic floors of the UK trance scene in the late nineties- realising there was more to life beyond her survival patterns of behaving and relating and that following the heart rather than the intellect was where her intelligence lay. With dedicated and disciplined practices of yoga and 5 Rhythms from the start of the Millennium, Sophie continues to embody the colourful spectrum of her early life experiences as full time yoga teacher and Dancing Freedom facilitator.

"Thank you so so much for the space you held today, and for the warmth, genuine joy, gentle support and contagious inspiration your poured into it. We benefited hugely as a family and as individuals, it's delicious, thank you xx"

I felt able to let go of judgement for most of the time i've been told I can't dance but I felt it didnt matter really enjoyed it see you next week

What an experience, it was what many of us busy mums dream of- to dance quietly in our own littles spaces and re claim these hard working body's. My joy of dance thoroughly re-kindled having listened to my body's impulses n mummers openly....my heart opened, my aches diluted- can't wait for next one!!! thank you for creating a safe candle lit space to privately yet together explore these earthly body's we inhabit for this lifetime. A wonderful 2hr dedication and prayer of gratitude to our body's n souls

Sophie created a bubble of safety holding space with a beautiful energy; allowing us to explore the connection between mind and body with amazing intensity. Thank you... so much.

I felt totally free and able to express myself in every which way. That kind of freedom emerges from a well held and safe space.

Family Yoga and Dance explanation

I offer moving meditation/ecstatic dance groups around the South of England, for adults and for families. There are no steps to follow, no choreography to learn, no way to do it wrong. This is inspiration for connection with yourself and others.

It's a really lovely way to release stress, to get fit, and to feel more in tune with yourself if coming to an adult session and with your family, if joining a family session. 

It's a non judgemental dance space so you can feel safe to move exactly as you wish, to release the pressure of right and wrong and into what's now and what's real for you. I will guide you with gentle facilitation through each of the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether - this wave creates symbology to relate your feelings, body sensations and/or your life story.
