Sophia Hyder Hock


Sophia has been practicing yoga for as long as she can remember, but 2016 proved to be a year full of major transformation and growth for her. Her Mom unexpectedly passed away that year and she sought to balance her business and personal life while managing a tremendous amount of grief. To cope with this loss, she found solace in yoga and learning about the principles of mindfulness and purpose. She practiced so much that she decided to take her journey one step further by taking the RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training at Be Here Now Yoga in 2017. Sophia became a yoga instructor and yoga life coach to live an intentional life and to find a way to inspire people to be their best self through life’s many challenges.

Off the mat, Sophia owns her own business designing and facilitating unconscious bias, diversity and inclusion, and cross-cultural communication trainings and workshops.
