Sophie Herbert Slater is a life coach, an alignment focused yoga teacher, and radio personality. Her mission is to empower her clients, students, and listening audience to develop greater self-trust, overcome obstacles, and build meaningful lives.
Sophie trained to be a life coach at New York City’s Open Center through the ICF accredited program Leadership That Works: Coaching For Transformation. A graduate of New York’s Cooper Union School of Art, Sophie nurtured her passion for documentary photography and pursued her disciplined study of yoga in New York, Paris, Kazakhstan, and throughout India. She holds 2 yoga teaching certificates from the Yoga Vidya Dham Institute in Maharashtra, India.
The extensive time Sophie lived in India nurtured her passion for giving back. She is a firm believer in the cumulative power of small positive gestures and seeks to incorporate social activism into her work as a coach, teacher, host, and blogger whenever possible. She feels grateful to still visit and work regularly with the Deenabandhu Children’s Home in Chamarajanagar, Karnataka, South India. In November of 2010, Sophie became an ambassador for Yoga Gives Back, a grass root nonprofit that helps destitute women and girls in India build more sustainable lives.
Sophie is the co-host of a new podcast with Stinky Productions founder Fannie Cohen called Doing It. They ask what people believe in, why, and how they get by.

Sadly, the channel was not renewed in 2013 and the show ceased production.
She was also a regular contributor to the Martha Stewart Show for over 4 years, producing and appearing in segments on yoga, health, and volunteering, and she was a contributing editor and blogger for Whole Living Magazine.
Speaking of health, Sophie is an avid cook who not only likes to eat healthfully, but save a buck or two in the process. With this is mind, it only seemed natural to make the “Life Coach Eats Cheap” blog. What is it? A pit stop for yummy, time conscious (for the most part!), and wholesome meals that won’t break the bank and hopefully some entertaining and educational stories.
Sophie is happy to live in Brooklyn with her husband and their cat.
