AROMA YOGA HAPPY HOUR


This class is taught by:

Sophia Maria Janus

Sophie feels blessed to have found yoga so early in life as she has seen an outstanding transformation from a stressed, self-conscious, and grieving teenager into a light-hearted, open, and grounded human being through its endless benefits. As her dedicated mat practice turned into a longing for a deeper understanding of yoga, she sought out the teacher training program at The Studio in Madison, WI, and received her RYT200 in June 2017. She continues to be fascinated by our bodies’ abilities to move in such beautiful ways in coordination with breath while building inner strength. Sophie’s classes encourage students to tune in to their breath and creative movement through rhythmic flows while maintaining the intention to build physical, mental, and emotional strength from the inside out. Offerings are always invitations to play, laugh, and be mindful of self love.

Practicing yoga is my inhale. Teaching yoga is my exhale. I cannot do one without the other.

I first found my way to yoga when I realized I was simply going through the motions of my overly busy life trying to juggle a full-time elementary teaching career, raising three beautiful (busy) children and managing the everyday demands of life. While just living in survival mode, I was painfully aware I was missing so many gifts along the way. The moment I stepped on my mat I knew I had come Home.

It was an immediate reconnection to my Self and to my life. I began my journey to truly living a fully authentic, wholehearted life with presence and purpose. Through devoted practice, I learned that, like life, yoga is far more than going through the motions to reach an end point. Rather, it is a way of being. Yoga is a constant opportunity to learn, grow and return Home, but you have to be willing to do the work and stay on your mat.

My practice has taught me countless lessons that guide me through life both on and off my mat. I learned the importance of presence, how to cultivate strength through vulnerability, to breathe and persevere through challenges and to reconnect to myself in order to better connect to and serve others.

After establishing a dedicated practice, I was naturally compelled to combine my two passions, teaching and yoga, into one. As a yoga teacher, I am humbled and honored to offer a welcoming, inclusive space that invites my students to not just practice their yoga, but to live it. I encourage students to meet themselves where they are at with curiosity, love and compassion. With sincerity, reverence and a sense of humor, I infuse creative, dynamic sequences with eclectic music that empowers my students to embody presence, cultivate strength and connect mindful breath with intentional movements.

My invitation is always to come Home and discover what yoga can offer, both on and off the mat.

Transition into your weekend with a 75-minute gentle flow class, complete with therapeutic grade essential oils and nurturing assists. Explore grounding, meditative and self-nurturing poses (and oils!) to restore and rebalance mind and body. Warm or cool lavender towels foster deep relaxation in savasana.
