Blending different influences – including somatic education and Feldenkrais inspired movement, classes flow with precise instruction to enable the student to be in the moment, yet feel they are gaining knowledge of how a posture should truly feel to them. Everyone is individual and so should your movement practice be. In classes, students are asked to practice with awareness through movement which helps students to experience yoga postures more comfortably, easily and beneficially, eliminating pain and strain and to not do postures by rote. The improved balance, flexibility, and strength students gain can help them to excel in, not only with holding postures but also, moving in and out of them more freely and with carrying out actions in daily life. Yoga is an ancient form of movement which blends mind, body and breath and – originally – the postures purposes were to prepare the body to sit and prepare for meditation. Zoe’s ethos turns this on its head. We spend so much time sitting at desks, on sofas and in cars, that whilst that adage may be true, Zoe uses yoga to help us stand up straight again. We should feel strong and feel free to move.
