Today’s guest is Dominique Antiglio.
Dominique is one of the world’s leading Sophrologists, a best-selling author, and founder of BeSophro, a global Sophrology platform.
But what is Sophrology, you’re surely asking? Sophrology is the science of consciousness in harmony, or more straightforward, it’s a form of dynamic relaxation, meditation, and self-exploration that works well with our modern lifestyles.
Dominique has been involved in Sophrology since she was 15 and now specializes in stress management, anxiety reduction and burn-out prevention. Her best-selling book The Life-Changing Power of Sophrology was the first widely published book on Sophrology in English and is now the leading authority on the subject.
After running a successful osteopathy practice in Switzerland and feeling a bit lost in her career, she shut up shop and moved to London to start a new life and a second career as a Sophrologist – a profession people had never heard of outside of a few European countries. Single-handedly, she has built up Sophrology to become part of the health and wellness mainstream, in a similar vein to mindfulness, meditation and yoga, and continues her mission to spread the word about how the practice can benefit the world.
