Zoë’s love of yoga began early in life with The ABC of Yoga by Kareen Zebroff, which she discovered on her mother’s bookshelf. She eventually found her way to yoga classes and developed a practice to which she attributes her sanity and health. Believing that people can be empowered in their own health and wishing to offer guidance to others, Zoë was drawn to yoga teacher training, completing the AYTT 200-hour program in 2012. In 2013, she was certified as a Standup Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga teacher, and as a Paddle Canada SUP Instructor. She infuses her teaching with her love of the natural world, community, and belief in the power of possibility, while being open to learning from her students and practice. Year round, Zoë can be found paddling her home waters of St. Margaret’s Bay.
An educator at heart, Zoë is also trained in Advanced Wilderness & Remote First Aid standards and is a Red Cross First Aid Instructor, specializing in teaching Standard First Aid for Yogis. She has led workshops in wilderness survival, nature photography, and meditation, and taught computer and writing skills. Currently, she manages the venues at Windhorse Farm, is a volunteer board member of Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia, and operates her own business, Fledge! Active Health. Zoë holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Saint Mary’s University.
