Sophia is a Health and Wellness instructor throughout the Macomb/St. Clair Communities. She teaches many health and wellness modalities, from Nutrition to Tai Chi. Her journey with Tai Chi/Qi Gong began ten years ago after years of being a Massage Therapist. Her goal was to help others feel good mentally and physically, but after many years of practice, her loved profession started to take a toll on her health. She found Tai Chi was the key to strength and healing. She is excited to join us at Macomb Township, teaching us how to relieve our stress, strengthen our bodies, and learn to flow with the body and mind as one.
