Wake up to the world!
Hello. I’m Sophie Jayne and I’m a yoga teacher in the Faversham, Canterbury and Herne Bay areas. Come along to one of my classes to take a moment away from the busyness of life, unwind and nourish your mind, body and spirit. Take some time out just for you. Or else, just get in touch to find out more. I hope to meet you soon.
Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit the broken pieces together. Yoga allows you to find inner peace.
A little bit about me
My yoga journey started when I was a teenager and since then has led me all over the world. From learning the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy from my teacher in rural Thailand to living and breathing everything yoga in the mountains of Tuscany and spending 10 days in a silent meditation retreat in Herefordshire. Along the way I have gained a 200 hours Yoga Alliance teaching certificate, a BSc in Social Psychology and am currently training to become a Humanistic Therapist. I have now laid down roots in the lovely town of Faversham and teach classes in the surrounding areas.
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
My classes are for everyone. Yoga is for everyone. Age, background, ability, level of fitness will not hold anyone back from experiencing the beauty of yoga and all its wonderful benefits. My classes combine mindfulness, asana (poses) and meditation techniques to allow you to slow down and carve out time each week for reflection, stillness and inner peace, away from your busy schedule. In my class not only will you stretch and strengthen your body but you will learn mindfulness and breathwork (pranayama) techniques which you can take away with you and practise in your day-to-day life to enable you to de-stress and gain new perspectives. I hope that through my classes you will gain strength in body, mind and spirit which will allow you to uncover your true self and flourish in this hectic but beautiful world. I hope to see you soon.
Be gentle with yourself, you are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life keep peace in your soul.

Body hang ups. We’ve all got them. It seems as though we are almost hard-wired to notice what we’re not happy with, rather than focus on all the wonderful things we can celebrate about ourselves. When walking towards a glass fronted shop our eyes seem to automatically...
As the Joker in Batman once said, “Why so serious?” When did we get so serious? We fondly look upon children jumping in puddles, not caring about their muddy jeans or boots, enjoying the act of doing something just for the fun of it. Being in the moment,...
Recently having taken a new direction in my career I have been looking at my own ideas about my self-belief. I think, from talking to others self-belief is something that possibly, everyone on this planet has had issues with at some point or other in...
I often feel very lucky to be living in a time when positive psychology is becoming increasingly mainstream. Certainly during my early twenties self-help books were a crutch on which I heavily relied to enable me to understand myself better and to realise that I...
I recently read an article about our difficulty in expressing our emotions and feelings to each other. That when we try to give compliments to others and say something loving we are met with either full on rebuke, awkward silences or stiffled sniggers. From my experience this...
