Divine Flow’s inspirational teacher Sophie (@talkingtotrees_sophie) will be holding a new yoga workshop series at Divine Flow this year.
Each healing workshop will cover a different topic and technique for manifesting your deepest desires and healing any common problems that might be associated with that topic.
We caught up with Sophie to talk about her vision for the yoga workshop and what students can expect from each class.
