Teacher

Sophie Fagan will be leading this weekend course.  

Sophie's journey into the world of Holistic Massage began in 2010 at the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork (BCMB) in the UK During the training she had a ' light bulb moment'. “I realized I am so relaxed, grounded and connected when I massage. I could get paid to relax and help others at the same time!”.

With this insight deeply embedded in her being, the next day she quit her day job and threw herself into the world of holistic massage, believing it would not only serve those she worked with but also feed her soul. Sophie joined the teaching team at BCMB in 2013 and to this day enjoys returning to Bristol to teach and connect with her long lasting clients a few times a year. She is now happily settled in The Netherlands (after a leap of faith following a gut feeling to relocate), with a busy massage practice in Amsterdam and Utrecht.

“I was honored when HOLOS asked me to join their teaching team! I love to teach and empower people to discover their own strengths and abilities, finding confidence to get out there and share their gifts with the world!”. Sophie has a foundation in Tai Chi and Chi Gong which she has practiced since 2004, and enjoys giving workshops to small groups and businesses. Being a huge believer in 'Strength in community' Sophie co-founded Embodied Empowerment in 2019 – a home for well-being practitioners to support, inspire and connect with each other. “Joining the HOLOS community feels like a wonderful development in my life journey and I am excited and grateful to be a part of the team".
