"Sophia has a spiritual sense, a sixth, or 7th sense. Maybe it's her brain and the way it knows languages; English, French, Tunisian Arabic, Spanish, Italian, the language of the body in her masterful massages, and the language of the whole body/mind complex, the universe within and without. Ayurveda, the science of life. She asks what's going on. She picks up the energy in the tone, the words, the story, the details. And she says, "tell me more." Good listening. So I tell her more. Lots more. I vent. I dump my struggles. And I always feel acceptance. Sophia is a healer in the true sense of the word. I would recommend her work any time!" Sue, Maine
"Sophia offers a depth of knowledge that only a lifetime of studying and practicing can provide. I met Sophia at a 1 hour ayurveda intro class and immediately knew I wanted to learn from her. She quickly became an important confidant, teacher and mentor in my life. Sophia’s yoga therapy sessions are always different - they varied based on my needs. Sometimes they were active and focused on asana, sometimes they were discussion based. Sophia used yoga philosophy to help me look within and make some challenging decisions. Sophia listens keenly, accurately reflects what I say, and offers sophisticated insights. Sophia is a gift. I wholehearted recommend her to friends and strangers alike". May 2016 Heidi Kessler, Maine
"Meeting Sophia was a true gift. I had been trying to get pregnant for over a year when I first met her...I was admittedly imbalanced...working too much- trying to do too much. Sophia's insight, knowledge, and calm clear energy, blended with her Ayurvedic teaching, not only helped me balance my life, but the principles just made sense. I instantly felt more mindful and lighter when putting her teaching into practice....and became pregnant the following month. I continue to see Sophia for massage and Ayervedic teachings for both myself and my baby boy. She is a true gem." July 2016 Brooke, Maine
Thank you so much for providing the guideline! I am so grateful for your strong yet humble spirit! The small group format was so welcoming. I really appreciated being able to express my interests and concerns in a warm and inclusive environment. Above all, you provided such an easy to understand foundation of ayurveda and gave such detailed and honest answers to questions and concerns that I left the class knowing I had a good base but wanted to learn even more. (This is a very good thing!) This is a complex concept not to mention a process of change....and I left the workshop feeling like I had a lot of good information to move forward, but moreover that you had my back. I would say too that the class flowed very well...that while you had a "script" the needs of the class directed where you went with details/information. I am so happy to have been able to be part of that very special time. I will report to you on the 21st day to let you know how I've done with my selected change choice. I really wanted to do them all.....the overachiever in me. A lot is blooming here in VA......our bees haven't fared that well this winter and we are hoping the bird songs and early blooms will bring them new encouragement! Salud, Lori Biller
“I can highly recommend Sophia and her work at Blue heron Synergy. I have seen her for ayurvedic counsel and have taken two series of her yoga courses. She is thoughtful in her presentation, very knowledgeable, and weaves her knowledge of the body into both practices. I have found this approach very realistic and it has helped me to incorporate small changes into my daily routines over time so that they become routine. She is encouraging, positive and has a good sense of humor!” Suzette, Maine
"I learned so much during your workshop and appreciate your kindness in sharing the guideline! :) I've known for a while that I needed to strive for a more balanced life. I've established a mediation practice, begun cooking more nourishing meals, and maintained my yoga practice. Attending your Ayurveda Workshop was the keystone that helped all these efforts and good intentions to really fall into place. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and for helping me to find a better way. " April 2016 Leah Pope, VA
The workshop at White Flower blew me away. Having been introduced to ayurveda several years ago, I felt lost in what I was reading as to how to reset my nutrition and use the tenets of ayurveda to be balanced. Your workshop changed that for me! Anonymous
