Meet Sophie - Yoga instructor.
. . .

We all see you as the face of fennel. You never complain when I throw an apron on you and throw you into a pose.

Part time model (haha sorry), Yoga teacher, mum and part time mama to my children.

It takes a village.

I first met Sophie when I was pregnant with number 2 after moving from the busy life thats was Auckland. I was on the hunt for a mindful yoga practice to get me through a second pregnancy with a toddler. I would look forward to your class at the wellness project every week. I found your class gave me the grounding and re-charge I needed to take on the rest of the week.

What lead you to practice yoga, in particular a maternity class?

I’ve practiced yoga ever since I was a kid. I love that there are so many different styles of yoga, whether you are after something more physical or more spiritual. I love that this can change over time as well, to suit whatever stage of life you are at. I became particularly passionate about maternity classes, after falling pregnant with our first child, Malo. I see it as a real blessing to be surrounded by a room full of pregnant women. I love supporting and guiding them at such an important time of their lives.

What do you love most about motherhood?


Everyday, feeling that my heart might burst with love for two beautiful little souls.

What has been your biggest challenge as a mum?

My biggest challenge was probably adjusting to motherhood in the early days. The sleep deprivation, and the pressure we put on ourselves as mothers.

What do you love most about fennel aprons?

I love that our fennel aprons are made by another Mum who is staying true to her passions and beliefs. All while being mindful of the environment, and the future of our tamariki.

If you had all the power in the world to do one thing what would it be?

That everyone takes the time to slow down, and do whatever it is that makes you happy ❤️
