Yogi, Minimalist Nomad, DJ, Astrologer. Mental health enthusiast, Barefoot runner, Gardener.Zoie began her yoga practice as an adult in 2010 after completing her BS in environmental science from Western Washington University.
After her undergrad, she traveled throughout the US, Canada and Central America eventually landing Xela, Guatemala in 2013 where she lived with her teacher in a Mysore focused yoga community. In 2016 she created a trauma informed yoga and meditation program in Xela through a woman’s organization called Proyecto Miriam. There she lead classes for Indigenous women and girls living in rural areas which centered around breath awareness and creating a safe space and providing tools for self-healing.
She received her RYT 200hr from Yoga Alliance as a means of bringing yoga to more people of various walks of life and especially those looking for more tools to better their emotional and mental health.Her yoga teaching style is deeply rooted in the awareness that we each bring a unique story to the mat with us and thus aims to facilitate a practice that honors her students individual needs and boundaries.
She hopes to create a warm and welcoming space that allows students to have a dynamic experience with each breath. Her classes tend to be both lively and vibrant with plenty of space for questions and laughter. She leads a multi-level Ashtanga inspired practice suited for fresh beginners to more advanced practitioners.
Zoie spends her free time making DJ mixes, playing guitar and spending time in the woods of the great Pacific Northwest.
