Sophie is a 17 year old New York native. She lives in the West Village with her parents and two younger brothers. Sophie’s story truly begins around the age of 11. Prior to this age, her experience with school was largely uniform to that of other kids, albeit with maybe slightly more difficulty. Suddenly, though, Sophie experienced something that baffled educators and doctors alike: she could not read. With no consensus explanation to explain what was happening to her, she began a long, winding journey of schooling, testing, and thousands of hours at a learning center. Her frustration led to anxiety, and around that time she began practicing yoga and experimenting with different movement exercises to help her not only cope with the frustration of her situation, but also to explore ways that she could express herself physically-- in a way that any learning disabilities could never touch. She felt that moving and connecting with her body is what really started to heal her mentally. Within four years, and through tireless work, Sophie flipped the script on those who doubted her, and became a better reader, writer, and learner than ever before. Her alternative method of achieving her own success changed her life, and now she wants to be able to share those possibilities with other teenagers. Her passion for physical movement and connection to yoga powered her to get her 200 hour ISHTA certification to become a yoga instructor. She will soon complete her 500 hour certification. She also discovered The Class By Taryn Toomey and immediately connected with the method that reinforces self awareness, and confidence in moving, it was a practice that she had been searching for. Sophie is now an instructor at The Class by Taryn Toomey. With her unique journey in mind, Sophie teaches weekly teen classes to help students de-stress and unwind from everyday struggles.
