Yoga Teacher/Contributing Editor to Whole Living/Singer/Artist

Hometown:Brookyln, NY

Bio: Yoga brings stability and calm into every discipline of Sophie Herbert's life. She is an alignment focused yoga teacher (and perpetual student), life coach, and a Whole Living contributing editor. She graduated from the Cooper Union School of Art, where she nurtured her passion for documentary photography. It was during this time that she began her disciplined and diverse study of yoga in New York, Paris, and India.

Sophie has lived, studied, and volunteered extensively in India. She feels grateful to still visit and work regularly with the Deenabandhu Children's Home in Chamarajanagar, Karnataka. In November of 2010, she became an ambassador for Yoga Gives Back, a grass-roots nonprofit that helps destitute women and girls in India build more sustainable lives. Currently, she teaches at the Park Slope Yoga Center in Brooklyn, Sangha House in Manhattan, and privately. Sophie is also an avid cook.

My philosophy: Never underestimate the power and cumulative effect(s) of even the smallest positive action(s). Believe and work with diligence, love, enthusiasm, and no expectation of merit. Don't be afraid of being positively self-confrontational. It's one of the greatest tools to help us embody the morals we seek to uphold.

If I weren’t doing what I do now, I'd probably be: working hard to become a photographer for National Geographic.

Favorite piece of advice: "You must be the change you want to see in the world." – Mahatma Gandhi
