Sophie is a great wise, inspiring, authentic and unique teacher. I went to her philosophy, meditation & hatha yoga courses and it was rich each Time. I learnt a lot with her and she even became a friend. I really apprecied the fact that she’s different than most of the other yoga teachers of koh phangan who seems to have one unique speech that they recite for each course without creativity and without watching the students. This is also because of that that I Say Sophie is an authentic teacher. She also knows a lot of things and do not hesitate to share it, she had great references and inspiring stories, and she is also very open to questions. The Yoga retreat was the perfect place for recieving all those precious gifts. From Safae Moatassime
Life is always blissful when we allow ourselves to be open, as Sophie told us students. She was a great yoga, Sanskrit philosophy and Ayurveda teacher who made sense of ancient philosophical concept that are rather abstract at times, for ordinary people living in modern society. The whole experience at The Yoga Retreat was truly life transforming for me, and Sophie was the one who guided the journey in practical manner which is easy to follow for anyone. I am grateful to have met such a great teacher, and wish everyone who follows this journey a blissful future. From Satoshi Takehana
this year it was my third experience @yogaretreat… and i can easily say that this time it was exceptional… it was also a great pleasure to know you and to take part in your classes & meditation practices.
your passion about movement, health and well-being was really “inspirational”… additionally your flow classes were powerful and nourishing… i strongly beleive that you have healing and transformative powers… we were lucky to have you with us during our short yoga vacation…
AND; i think your playlists and background music selections are the best ! 😀
thank you once again 😊
Hi Sophie, here’s a short review about your philosophy / meditation classes at the Yoga Retreat in December (upon your request): Sophie has very good knowledge and a good education. She was always well prepared and exercises and lessons were very well structured. Sophie is a good communicator: content was presented and communicated easy to comprehend and students were involved in the discussion, thus being able to partcipate in the development of the insights. Overall I would say I learned a lot and will come back to the retreat soon. Cheers,Juergen
I would like to sent you feedback on my detox/yoga experience at the yoga retreat on Koh Phangan. Thank you so much for making my time there a great experience. From day one you have been very helpful, not only with your daily yoga classes but also explaining things related to the detox and giving general tips and guidelines. It has made my detox experience very fluent and easy, especially as the owner of the retreat wasnt there when i did the detox and de rest of the staff didnt speak English or not very well. Also all staff left the retreat every day around 6pm and after this time i could always come to you or Michael if i had questions.As for your yoga lessons they were very helpful and just what i needed after a very busy and stressful time at home. I was dealing not only with some physical problems but also emotional ones. You seem to know which yoga techniques could help me and i already felt a positive change after a couple of days. Next to your very professional lessons (you really know your stuff;), you are also a very kind and like-able person. I always felt welcome to approach you and you always took your time for me.Thank you for everything and please also sent my gratitude to Michael – you both have been wonderful and i hope to take lessons with you again some day!
Best regards,Hansje Görtz Netherlands
