After graduating from school, she went to India to deepen her knowledge of Ashtanga yoga and to become a yoga teacher. She has been teaching ever since. She recently continued her yoga studies with Sharath Jois at the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. In Sofia’s teaching, you will find a lot of playfulness and also a focus on alignment, strength, and technique in each position.
