The Sophia School of Movement offers sacred movement classes with the goal of integrating willing, feeling, and thinking through gentle, etheric movement, vivifying classical music, and the sacred sciences.

From St. Louis de Montfort about Mary:
"It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world. I declare with the saints: Mary is the earthly paradise of Jesus Christ the new Adam, where he became man by the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to accomplish in her wonders beyond our understanding. She is the vast and divine world of God where unutterable marvels and beauties are to be found. (Continued below)

Who is Sophia?
Sophia is the Greek word for 'wisdom'. The ancient philosophers, as well as King Solomon, the wisest in his time, could elevate their consciousness to this realm of divine wisdom. Through the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, this wisdom realm became united with earth existence. Have you ever thought about the difference between the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, and his blessed mother Mary? In her silence, in her Immaculate Heart, she was mysteriously active.
Mary-Sophia is the union of the blessed Virgin Mary and the being of divine wisdom, Sophia. Sophia is referred to in Proverbs 8 as Wisdom (who speaks directly to King Solomon), in Revelation 12 as the woman clothed with the Sun, etc., and in Revelation 19, as the Bride of the Lamb. She is the Bride of Christ.
It makes sense, then, that Mary, immaculately conceived, was chosen to be the vessel of the Logos that the Word become flesh through her to dwell among us. And that she, as the Virgin Soul who did not go through The Fall, was also chosen to be the vessel of the Holy Spirit on the eve of Pentecost, in the presence of the 12 disciples, to facilitate the descent of the Holy Spirit, transforming the disciples into apostles, which resulted in the forming the first Christian Community.
There is debate about her origin. We know that Christ is one with the Father, and the Holy Spirit, as the fullness of the Holy Trinity. Christ is not a created being, but one with God! Could this be the same for his Bride?
Many consider the Bride of Christ to be his Church. This is what we are striving for as Christians - to become the Bride of Christ.
As we strive to understand the indications in Proverbs and Revelation, we also strive to be open to the Second Coming of Christ. This is the second GREAT PROMISE of our Lord. He promised to send his Spirit, and he promised to return in the clouds.
This is why this path of sacred movement has come - to prepare us to recognize Christ in his Second Coming, in the clouds!
Through gentle, etheric movement, and classical music, we strive to become Virgin Souls, purified by Christ's Light, Love, and Life.
(Continued from above - St. Louis de Montfort)
The saints have said wonderful things of Mary, the holy City of God, and, as they themselves admit, they were never more eloquent and more pleased than when they spoke of her. According to St. Augustine, even St. Michael, though prince of all the heavenly court, is the most eager of all the angels to honor her and lead others to honor her. At all times he awaits the privilege of going, at her word, to the aid of one of her servants.
"If you wish to understand the Mother," says a saint, "then understand the Son. She is a worthy Mother of God." Hic taceat omnis lingua : Here let every tongue be silent.
My heart has dictated with special joy all that I have written to show that Mary has been unknown up till now, and that that is one of the reasons why Jesus Christ is not known as he should be.
If then, as is certain, the knowledge and the kingdom of Jesus Christ must come into the world, it can only be as a necessary consequence of the knowledge and reign of Mary. She who first gave him to the world will establish his kingdom in the world."
