Current Retreats & Workshops

Sunday May 6 in Edmonton!

Love Edmonton

Zoe’s coming to Edmonton on May 6! Soothe your nervous system, stimulate your digestion, and stretch out your wintry aches. This is the perfect afternoon retreat to rinse out any grumpy habits and befriend yourself again. This mini retreat is designed to be safe and accessible for all bodies—both beginners as well as seasoned practitioners. Come just as you are, be yourself, and practise as gently or vigorously as you need that day.

To Bring

  • ·Yoga mat (there will be extras if you forget!).
  •  Layered clothing, in case the room is too warm/cold for your liking.
  • 1 or 2 yoga blocks if you can (there are a few extra, but not enough for everyone).
  • A compact blanket if you need one for savasana.
  • A yoga strap if you can (there are a few extra, but not enough for everyone).
  • A good book/journal/sketch pad if you like taking notes, or if you need a more introverted, quiet break time. Everyone recharges differently.

 

Love Pampering

  • 12:45-1:00 pm  Arrive and relax.
  • 1:00-2:00 pm  Indulge in an uplifting asana class to flush your circulation around, spring-clean any dusty tissues, and reacquaint yourself with your unique body.
  • 2:00-2:30 pm  Savour a fresh, light, gluten-free snack during our break (please notify me of any allergens upon registering).
  • 2:30-3:00 pm  Soak up an informative workshop on pelvic organ support.
  • 3:00-4:00 pm  Close your afternoon with a nourishing and reassuring asana class to restore your energy levels.
  • 4:00-4:30 pm  Hug your goodbyes. Pack up your things. Stefan and Taia will come pick me up (naps allowing), so you can say hello!

Love Your Pelvic Floor

Every human has a pelvic floor, which is tasked with some enormous crucial jobs. How can we pair certain daily movements with a particular breath so that this muscular sling can execute those essential jobs and truly support our vital organs? (No, the answer is not just squeezing kegels!). Enjoy this brief workshop that is applicable and healing to every human body.

      Testimonials

      Zoe is one of the finest yoga instructors I have practiced with in 25+ years of study.

      “Zoe is a master teacher, one of the finest yoga instructors I have practiced with in 25+ years of studying with outstanding practitioners in Southern California and elsewhere. She is superbly skilled and trained, sensitive to personal requirements of each student; provides creative, innovative sequences and asana combinations, with extremely precise careful, thoughtful, and detailed instructions. Her classes are simply wonderful and she herself is filled with peace, power, serenity, exuberance, and joy. It is contagious!”

      — G.G.

      Her style and superb instruction, make me keep coming back!

      I run on average between 22 and 27 miles per week and I combine that with 4 weight training sessions. I'm 55 years old. I'm more flexible and my joints and ligaments feel better and younger now than they ever did, 10 or even 20 years ago. How is that possible? I credit the yoga that I do at least twice per week for its ability to stretch and release both my body and my mind. And I credit that yoga to Zoe. Her teaching style and superb instruction, make me keep coming back for more. My mind and body thank her.”

      — Peter.

      Zoe's made a positive impact on my physical and mental health.

      “I wanted to say that I really enjoy coming to Zoe's yoga classes. Not only is it so convenient to have her come to us, but I like how she has so many different options for every pose, so it caters to every skill level, including my own. My main reason for coming to yoga is to help me to relax, so it is nice that there is no pressure to do everything perfectly. But at the same time, however, through Zoe's kind encouragement, she pushes me a bit more every time and shows us when we are doing something incorrect. I think that coming to yoga every week has made a positive impact on my physical and mental health, so thank you very much, Zoe!”
