Hi! I’m Sofiya
a human with immense curiosity about life that wants to help people feel better.
I used to dream about being a dancer, but was worried that I started too late. I used to feel pain and discomfort in my body and did not know why. I used to criticize myself very harshly about everything.
However, in the last 11 years, I learned to believe in myself. I learned that it is never late to start dancing/moving. I nurtured a very strong connection to my body, got rid of the discomfort and found the secret to feeling good in my own body.
Now, I use my experiences to help others feel comfortable and confident in their skin, via dance, healthy movement and mindfulness.
Why I believe I can help you.
Here are some lessons that I learned along my journey. Overcoming these challenging makes me certain I can help you.
It is never too late to start dancing!
Dance improves your confidence!
I am a science nerd...
In 2017, I had a terrible spine injury.
My students are my greatest teachers.
I am here to guide you on your own path.
What do people say...
Sofiya is as warm and welcoming as she is a woman powerhouse story! She keeps on widening her repertoire from day to day and that intensely manifests in what she brings to the table in her classes! She knows a lot and what she doesn't she'll learn for you to help you grow in any way she can.
Sofiya has an incredible knowledge and can break it down and convey it wonderfully. She has the gift of explaining visually in a very clear way, for example showing the anatomy of the body through bones or offering pictorial imaginations. This understanding helps me tremendously to develop as a dancer.
I've been dancing with Sofiya for a few years now and I have improved my dance noticeably. She has an amazing repertoire and style, I can only recommend her classes for both beginners and advanced dancers, especially for those who really seek to connect body and soul!
