Bespoke Yoga classes 

Imagine the wonderful sense of ease practicing yoga in your own home? I offer personalised yoga practices 1:1, to small groups of friends, as well as to couples.

The magic of yoga, to me, is the SIMPLICITY of the practice coming home to the body and therefore to one’s centre. It’s a space for you to stop, to breathe more fully and feel WELL in your BEing. I can help you to feel the nourishment that yoga brings through the moving meditation of physical gestures/shapes (asanas) and breath work that strengthen, stretch and re align the body. I look forward to meeting you in a space of the greatest authenticity, empowering to create a daily practice that suits your needs or the needs or your group. 

 Mats and yoga equipment are provided 

Please do be in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

Testimonials

“We feel very lucky to have met you and you have introduced us to yoga practice which has been both stimulating and mindful all in one. John and I are very different personalities and you have managed to tailor the yoga to suit both of us in equal measures. Your sensitivity and gentle approach are very special and we will miss you very much.”

“Sophie’s supremely attentive, passionate about her teaching practice but also great fun. They don’t come any better as far as I’m concerned.”
 
Jane Boston – Mother/Business Coach
 
“Sophie leads us with enthusiasm, courage and a wonderful sense of humour.  She manages to get the most out of us each and every week and just seems to know intuitively exactly what it is that we need.  I could honestly not recommend her highly enough.  She is highly professional, directs us with calm clarity and makes you feel so confident in your abilities. Anyone who gets to work with Sophie will be extremely lucky – I feel as if I have found a real treasure and someone who inspires me to take more care and be kinder to myself. She introduces yoga in such an accessible manner for everyone to enjoy and her warm, caring and calm energy is lovely to be around.”
 
Bryony Johnstone – Mother/MD of Waterbabies
 
“Sophie works with the whole person in her yoga classes. Undergoing chemotherapy for secondary cancer I was worried that the class would be too strenuous for me and that I would feel that I wasn’t able to keep up with the others. Sophie gently encourages and gets the best from me whilst encouraging me to listen to my body and do what is right for me. I never feel singled out or different or less able, just supported and looked after. She has a beautiful positive energy and I look forward to her classes very much.”
 
Ciara Langmaid – Mother

Yoga brings us together

I have an intuitive approach to holding yoga sessions. In a group setting I invite us to come together to support each other, dropping into a calmer state of being, creating a safe place where the physical body can be truly experienced in it’s ability to stretch, be strengthened and to soften. I love to help dispel the notion that you have to touch your toes to be ‘good’ at yoga!  Together let’s drop the fantasy of how yoga should look! I like to make classes nurturing and fun. 

Om.

Whilst dancing at one of Sophie's sessions, I explained to a friend that it felt like being enveloped in silk and carried up. I felt my spirit lift and I was able to immerse myself in my dance and my intention. All in all, I felt deep joy, a natural ecstasy, that comes to me through well-thought out sequences of music, with intuitive sense of rhythm, dynamics, subtle lyrics and a deep, deep sense of heart, light-heartedness, not of the frivolous kind, but of the floating, soaring, mystical kind, and a real sense at the end of grounded-ness, of having journeyed well and come to a natural conclusion.

Sophie Bolton worked for us in the capacity of children's guide, and leprachaun!, at a birthday party organised for an individual of high net worth. This event ran across a four day duration and it was the client's request that we have a character actor befriend and entertain the children for the duration.  It was a very difficult role and of the utmost importance to the success of our event.  Sophie was exceptional. She created a truly believable and lovable character. Her rapport with the children was instantaneous. The parents were immediately comfortable that their children were is good hands. Sophie was in demand from the moment the clients arrived to the moment that they left.  So successful was her performance that we had to turn down the clients requests, on a number of occasions, or she would have been working from 8am to 9pm without a break! The children simply loved her.  Sophie was a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate in recommending her to any event organiser, casting director or other employer; she is creative, talented, reliable and just lovely to have around. I look forward very much to working with her again in the near future.

Despite a surfeit of yoga teachers, finding one that fires up your desire to do yoga, and who's classes you really love and look forward to, is harder than finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. But Sophie is that elusive needle - a really excellent teacher who makes you never want to miss one of her classes. I can't recommend her enough.

Jenny Ransom - Massage Therapist

Sophie has a lovely warm and nurturing teaching style. I really love how she brings in snippets of etheric info into the classes; I find it really helps to bring a bit of magic into the work that we do. Classes are well thought out and with each week Sophie gently builds on the complexity of the poses. After her classes I always feel more grounded and centred. I think most of all though, I enjoy the sense of connection I have with my body after a class with Sophie.

I had an incredible Hatha session yesterday with Sophie. Sophie has a lovely ability to guide you through any particular sequence. Her simple trigger-words and -phrases instantly and sensitively created a easy-to-understand visualisation within my mind's eye. With my eyes closed and focussed on breathing, this makes all the difference without having to glance up. I can honestly say in roughly five years of on-again, off-again yoga practice, I learnt some new, simple but very effective pointers that helped me to achieve lovely 'unforced' movements, serenity and overall beautiful vibe! It's clear that Sophie creates a beautiful, supportive and fun environment for this to occur. Thanks so much Sophie. See you again!

Tori Lewis

Being in a dance session with Sophie is a great privilege. She exudes fun, presence, joy and huge amounts of charisma. Her skills as a DJ really make the session as well as her joyful personality. Sophie really has a gift! I would really recommend Sophie and Dancing Freedom for anyone who loves to move.

Before Zak started Yoga, he used to be very anxious, not able to focus and found it difficult to control his behaviour. I feel because of yoga Zak is much more relaxed, happier and more focused. Seeing him in Yoga, was a dream come through. I have never seen Zak so much and relax. I don't think I will ever stop his sessions, he is a completely different child now. Zak comes home after his session so relaxed and he so looks forward to Mondays because of Yoga.
