Zoë has been practising Iyengar Yoga since 1998. In 2001, her work as a woven textile artist took her to India and gave her the opportunity to study with Rajiv and Swati Chanchani. This event was the turning point at which yoga became central to Zoe.
For several years, Zoë devoted most of her time to the study and practice of Iyengar Yoga in India, as both a student of the Chanchanis and in her own practice. The Chanchanis continue to be her teachers and she makes regular visits to their centre near Dehradun. In 2004 she took local classes at RIMYI, Pune and celebrated Guruji’s birthday. She qualified as an Introductory Level 2 Teacher in 2015.
Zoë has studied Ayurveda in India and England, and her understanding and practice of yoga is enriched by Ayurvedic philosophy.
Zoë is incredibly grateful to have come into contact with Iyengar Yoga and she fully embraces it as part of her daily life. She believes that the practice of yoga can influence our lives greatly, that it engages conscious and unconscious components of ourselves—our known and unknown—and that it is a vast and revealing subject that can offer us a means to be introspective and still. For Zoë, yoga offers support, nourishment and great joy as well as balance and connectivity. It is a constant, true and trusted companion that guides her so very well.
