Sofie (1989) is the founder of ‘Prosperity for People’ and has been teaching yoga since 2018. After she studied Communication Science (Bachelor & Master) she pursued a Master in Management, Innovation & Entrepreneurship which she completed in 2013. Subsequently, she worked in multiple positions at Spotify for almost five years. In 2018 she decided to become self-employed and started her own businesses.
Sofie has been interested in yoga from when she was 16 years old. She started practicing yoga because she wanted to reduce her back pain and because she was inspired by her mom and grandma who were already practicing yoga for years.
Over the years she intensified her own practice and completed a Hatha yoga teacher training in 2017 (RYT, 200 hours, Yoga Alliance). She has been teaching yoga ever since. In 2021 she completed her Advanced Teacher Trainings at Delight Yoga (RYT, 300+ hours, Yoga Alliance). In these Advanced studies she deepened her knowledge and experience in yoga, ayurveda, mindfulness, breathwork and meditation.
Yoga has brought her a great deal on multiple levels. Besides her body becoming more flexible, balanced and strong, practicing yoga has made her much more self-steering. She believes yoga continuously helps to turn inwards and manage energy more effectively, which results in the diminishing of stress and creating from the inside out.
Because of her experience in both the field of yoga and the corporate world she has a clear understanding of the challenges that many professionals are facing these days and what practices can support their body, mind and spirit. Through her teachings she guides people towards a more balanced and prosperous life.
