My name is Sophie Florence and I am training to be a yoga teacher. I am based in London balancing my yoga business with a career in a professional services firm, designing and delivering Leadership and Professional Skills training courses. I am a Chartered Accountant (CA) with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland.
Having begun working in the corporate world at eighteen, I was thrust into a hectic life of long and lonely hours. I understand the impact that this intense environment can have on your physical and mental wellbeing, and I would love to help create the space to deal with this.
I started yoga when I was looking for a fun way to exercise, and what I found was a regular practice that supported both my body and my mental health. I found I was able to cope more effectively with the stresses of my day job, when I took the time to breath and check in with myself regularly, which I find can easily be neglected.
My passion for learning, combined with my love of yoga, have led me on this journey to becoming a yoga teacher.
