Who Is YogiSo?

I have been practicing different styles of yoga (Hatha, Ashtanga and more recently Vinyasa Flow) for over fifteen years now, have tried Sivananda, Kundalini, Nidra, Power, Bikram, and have been teaching it for over ten years.

I have been a personal trainer since 1998, and although I don't practice yoga as much as I would like to (everyday), I just couldn't imagine my life without Yoga anymore.

To me Yoga is the glue that has put myself back together after all the losses and breaks I have experienced over the years, physically as well as emotionally.

I have practiced fitness in many forms, have been swimming, surfing, running, dancing, skateboarding, riding horses, but nothing has altered my body and mind as deeply as yoga has.

I don't believe in level classes, I have people who come to me thinking they are too stiff, too old, too fat, too thin, too broken, too soft, too lazy (insert your own internal dialogue here), and I see all these perceptions get blown away as soon as the breath falls in sync with the movement.

Breathing in and breathing out, one posture after the other, any body can find comfort and growth in this amazing practice...

Sophie is my first yoga teacher. She has a very particular set of skills, skills she as acquired over a very long career. She teaches in a very inclusive and fulfilling manner, allowing you to try everything and grow on your own without fear of being judged.

I had the pleasure of spending a few beautiful days in Sophie’s Shala at her family home in Northern France. I am ever so grateful to her and her family who warmly welcomed and shared their special place. It was a wonderful experience to be able to practice and soak up all the love and knowledge Sophie has to share with us all… Namaste

Sophie is my very first Yoga teacher, and she’s the best. Her classes are little gems, go and you will enjoy them big time, you will sweat, laugh and feel inspired. You will hate her a little (Goddess Posture OMG), but most of all you will love her. And her playlists are awesome! ❤

I have the extraordinary luck to have a wonderful, bright yoga teacher settle 200m away from my country home in Normandy. Sophie, aka YogiSo Tunnicliffe, has passed on her passion, her philosophy in a loving, joyful and compassionate way, caring for each and every one of us with utmost kindness.

Marion Herbaut

Thank you YogiSo Tunnicliffe, my yoga teacher, met almost 4 years ago now, who has - in a very authentic and truthful way- shared with me her passion and tools allowing me to be myself, to let go of what no longer served me, to follow my path and go with the flow… Go try a class with her, you will come out with your heart full of love, a smile on your face and sore muscles for three days ❤

If you want to have a deep and powerful yoga practice but without taking yourself seriously, I cannot recommend enough YogiSo Tunnicliffe! I have very fond memories of all yoga retreats we did together and I’m sure the next one is going to be brilliant as well ????☀

One of the hardest things about moving from Paris has been leaving my Monday night yoga class. I've practiced yoga in several studios in both the US and France for about 14 years now, and Sophie is hands down the best instructor I've ever had. She is the perfect combination of knowledge, energy, fun, strength, challenge and mindfulness. And if all that doesn't get you going, her music choice will!!!

Yoga and me ?‍♀ is a ? story that started 6 months ago during a retreat with YogiSo Tunnicliffe ... another converted chick? Practicing yoga with Sophie is a magical encounter, lots of kindness, generosity and of ? it changed my life pour toujours.

After practicing yoga with so many different teachers in India, New York, Paris, and elsewhere in the world, I can say hands down that I always felt best in Sophie’s classes, workshops and sessions. She always encourages students to be themselves, taking into account what's going on in the world and she never becomes robotic or monotonous. I remember after the terrorists attacks in Paris how she led a session of 108 surya namaskara, and I think that was the only thing that could have brought me comfort in such a dark time. I'm grateful to her for being so attuned to the universe and the energy around us and always facing it with honesty and courage, never being afraid to look reality in the eye. Whatever "proper" yoga is, or if it exists, I don't know and I don't care because the way she has taught me to practice includes compassion, understanding, discipline, but also laughter and fun, which are so easily left behind in any practice.
