Meet Zoe

 

Rated in “Vancouver’s top 10 Yoga teachers” By Narcity Magazine, students have described Zoe as “that instructor that cuts through the noise; a leader of the body, and also a leader of the mind and soul.” Zoe’s presence is one in which students laugh out loud, reflect, and expand into a deeper awareness of Self. Zoe’s approach varies from enthusiastic and energetic with her Fitness and Personal Training clients, to calm and peaceful with her meditation and yoga students. She will emphasize the present experience, while encouraging your connection to body, emotion, fun-filled effort, and true rest.

Remember, life is truly more beautifully humorous than dreadfully serious – especially with strong abs and an open heart.

Zoe can help you feel good. Mentally. Emotionally. Physically. 

Drawing upon her human kinetic, personal training, yoga, pilates, mindfulness meditation, and mindset studies background, she offers deep understandings of our human anatomy - both scientific and spiritual. 

Zoe will guide you in empowering and healing yourself by sharing her unique: self-mobility-massage techniques, one-of-a-kind creative conditioning exercises, FUNdational core training, and sweetly flowing movement practices.

Through mindset coaching and the practice of deep inquiry, Zoe  helps students manage chronic mental, emotional, and physical stress - realizing equanimity, renewal and rejuvenation. 

Students regularly leave sessions saying that they feel more "uplifted and positive",  that it was "just what they needed", and that she has "a true way of healing."

about Zoe's past

Zoe's private yoga, bodywork, and coaching has been thriving in Vancouver for more than 15 years, but before that as Zoe was beginning a career as a Commercial Pilot, fear and anxiety started to become unmanageable and her life began to unravel.  As an underlying sadness wove its way deeper into her life, she had the difficult realization that a career in aviation, while practical, was not truly aligned with who she was.  Recognizing that her life to this point had been a battle fought only to prove to others that she was "enough",  Zoe dedicated herself to exploring this illusive sense of enoughness, and dove into herself in order to break free. 

Giving herself over to a passion for creativity and movement, her hunger for knowledge guided her through academic studies of art, design, anatomy, yoga, and human behaviour around the globe.  Through these explorations Zoe collected many tools; reworking and remodeling her internal world - mentally and physically.  Zoe has now honed a process that helps others find energy, creativity and joy in their personal lives and in the workplace. 

It is her passion to share the practical tools that lead to an energized existence. Using conscious movement, insight mediation, balanced nutrition, and modern neuroscience - Zoe helps others excavate barriers and fears: uncovering innate joy, outer brilliance, and inner peace.

With awareness, compassion, and play, we begin to leave our stories behind and relax back into the captivating richness of life.
