Thank you so much for visiting this space, and WELCOME! I am a Yoga teacher and practitioner in the Hudson Valley. Like many, was initially drawn to the physical postures of Yoga, the Asanas, which provided a welcoming gateway to better understand the all-encompassing nature of Yoga.
I am endlessly grateful to all who have mentored, inspired, and informed my current practice. I feel genuine excitement to continue exploring and sharing this ancient universal discipline as a means of connection and understanding. When teaching, I strive to support the experience of each student in navigating both movement and stillness through playful, thoughtful, breath-oriented classes for all levels.
I can attest to the unifying nature of Yoga, having taught numerous styles to a wide range of people in a variety of settings. I am passionate about social justice in the yoga community and beyond, and I currently work full time as a social worker. For resources and more on the subject of social justice in Yoga, visit the Antiracism and Appropriation tab.

Quick update: you might notice inconsistencies in my name! I have reestablished my birth name, Sofia Mahmood. Feel free to check out this post for a little more information on that!
Whatever your goals, ideas, or experiences, I would be thrilled to assist in all aspects of your journey of the self, through the self, to the self (-Bhagavad Gita 6.20)!
