As a mother of 3 daughters, Sophie pursues her greatest passions: children and yoga.
For years, she has focused on teaching her students the Fun, Happiness, Peace and Relaxation that comes through the practice of yoga.
She trained in Singapore, India and London to become a qualified and certified yoga teacher for adults, expecting mothers and children – including those with special needs. As an e-RYT and RCYT certified teacher, she founded her studio So Yoga in Singapore and is teaching tens of kids yoga classes every week.
Children transform weekly into cats, warriors and flamingos... They practice yoga while playing and play while practicing yoga. Introducing children to yoga according to Sophie should always be active, lively and joyful. Parents often ask her for advice and tips on how to incorporate yoga into their home.
She then came up with the idea of a kids yoga “universe” that would be soft, colourful, accessible from home.
She wrote a series of yoga “notebooks” based on feedback from children and their parents. MiniYOGI is a playful book concept with yoga poses, stories and games to stimulate imagination while entertaining and educating kids. Each book is based on an animal, representing a yoga concept: The Elephant of Wisdom, the Flamingo of Balance…
Kids (and their parents!) Yoga Mats were designed with love.. They’re shorter than adults mats, washable and incredibly soft!
Eye Pillows were created to soften kids eyes while relaxing…
Whether or not you and your children have an opportunity to practice yoga in a studio, MiniYOGI is the perfect friend to family home practice.
