I met Sophie, through some mutual friends, and she told me she desperately needed new photos for her website, so we have been planning a shoot together ever since the fall.
Sophie is teaching in both Voorhout and Lisse.
I took her private and group class one time, and I was impressed with the work she does. I found myself feeling very peaceful and relaxed, while my body was doing the work.
I felt like I was moving muscles I haven't moved in a long time, while it was not straining on my joints at all.
I think this type of workout, is suitable for everyone, but for me who hasn't been working out in years felt very refreshing.
I think the video above captures perfectly the pace and the rhythm of her classes.
Sophie is a lovely person. You feel at peace when you're around her, and she will always snuck in a kind comment or a compliment in each encounter you have with her.
She was a bit nervous about her shoot, which I think you cannot tell from the photos. I love how she puts her heart into what she does and I feel honoured that I got to capture her doing what she's best at.
Find the photos below and don't hesitate to reach out to Sophie if you're interested about her classes.
