Sophy Hoare - Yoga Teacher

Ed screenshot of www.sophyhoare.co.ukFI went to my first yoga class in 1970 at the former Dance Centre in Floral Street, Covent Garden. The teacher was Penny Nield-Smith, a student of B.K.S. Iyengar. Penny mainly taught large classes for the London adult education authority and never taught ‘advanced’ postures, but she taught a great deal about attention and awareness.

After six years, Penny encouraged me to start teaching and I attended classes with several other Iyengar teachers to expand my practice. I had a strong desire to free my body of its limitations but I never discovered a way which satisfied me. It was as though I was searching for an elusive or non-existent key.

In 1991 I met Vanda Scaravelli who invited me to become her student. In my first lesson I knew immediately that Vanda was offering me this key. After that I visited her in Italy once or twice a year to learn how to work with the principles she had discovered in her own practice. At Vanda’s house I met Diane Long and recognised in her practice the same freedom that I saw in Vanda. I invited Diane to teach me and my students in London and since then we have been meeting regularly to practise and teach together.

Women in Black: Scotland

screenshot of www.wibs.org.ukWomen in Black is a network of women world-wide committed to peace with justice and opposed to war and other forms of violence. We wear black to mourn all victims of war, the destruction of people and of nature. We aim to educate, inform and influence public opinion, to make war an unthinkable option.

Women in Black began with weekly vigils by 15 Israeli women in 1988. They were soon joined by Palestinian women, and soon there were 40 Women in Black groups around Israel and the West Bank. The movement broadened to other conflicts and countries, with women gathering to stand in silence in Belgrade in protest at the Serbian regime, and in London against the Gulf War. In 2001, Women in Black was awarded the UNIFEM Millennium Peace Prize for Women and nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
