Certified Yoga Teacher, Founder
My name is Sophie. I'm the owner of and teacher at Firefly Yoga. I took up Hot Yoga while at university and absolutely fell in love with yoga.

My My Level 3 Yoga Diploma included the following modules:
Underpinning the principles of teaching yoga
Health and safety for yoga

Planning a series of yoga sessions
Teaching a yoga session (practical assessment)
I also attended a series of practical days covering the following topics:
Yoga posture clinic
Learning to teach yoga
Breathing, bandhas, mudras and meditation
Freestyle Fitness Yoga (separate practical qualification)
My Hot Yoga Certificate included the following modules:
Anatomy and physiology for yoga (Level 3)

I also attended several training days where we trained and practised teaching in the heat with the added challenges that it brings.
I started teaching in June of 2017 in a number of different venues whilst working on getting my own yoga studio up and running.
Firefly Yoga officially opening in November 2017.
Yoga is both my hobby and my job. I believe with the right modifications yoga is and can be accessible to everyone!
