Zoey has been studying yoga for over 30 years, and teaching for 20. Originally studying Ashtanga and teaching Power Yoga, she took her first Jivamukti Class in Detroit and began to study privately with Janiki Swalwell. Janiki opened her eyes and her heart to the wider world of yoga that encompasses the spiritual aspects of yoga and Zoey new she had found what she had been looking for all those years. She completed a 200 hour Vedanta Shala Yoga Teacher Training that was based on Jivamukti Yoga and finally in 2010 was blessed to attend 300 additional hours of Jivamukti Instructor Training at Omega and receive the inspirational teachings of Sharonji and Davidji.
Zoey attends regular workshops with Sharon and David and is thankful for their presence in her life, and for the presence of all the wonderful Jivamukti mentors and teachers who selflessly share their teachings. Helping the people of Nepal through charity outreach is an important focus of Zoey’s life and karmic practice. Zoey has an MSc in Exercise Science with a focus on alternative therapy and the spine and has written instructor education programs for Peak Pilates, Keiser, Nautilus, Life Fitness, and Flexcushion. Zoey has experienced the power of yoga in guiding her life and works to help others do the same.
