After going on outward travels and adventures Sophie started an inner exploration through yoga and meditation. This taught her to let go of fear and anxiety through being present with whatever there is. She started sharing yoga not only during classes but even more in daily life, during every act or interaction. The essence of what she learned she is finding now is non-dualism. By giving up the search and opening up for the freedom and the unconditional love that is present right now in everyone and everything, Sophie is sharing her 'presence' in a simple, joyful, loving, and authentic way.
Having spent several years in India with his spiritual master, Surya had the chance to dive deep within himself through yoga, tantra, and meditation since 2008. After some years of practice, he started to specialize in healing sound and music. In this field, he started to teach and offer therapy in Belgium, India, Turkey, and other places. Driven by a deep wish to support more people, build bridges between cultures and spiritual traditions, and offer more depth in the teachings he founded Akasha Retreat Center in 2018, together with his brother Floris Adriaenssens and partner Sophie Snoeckx.
