Working women, moms who don’t have time to go to a yoga studio or menopausal women who are immersed in emotional and physical changes can explore our programs with a professional therapist to re-balance their lives.  Our individualised programs and personalised weekend retreat is ideal for women who need their yoga to complement their lifestyle, and not visa versa.

While there are over 80 main yoga asanas to chose from that people can be given, in the typical 90-minute class, they’re not all suited to the individual condition. With a personalised program the client is taught manageable everyday practices (with follow up monitoring, performance and tweaking) that addresses their daily rhythms, breathing, energy levels, peace of mind and sensory intake.

“Bondi,” is the world famous city beach just 8k's from the centre of the CBD. People come from all over the world to revitalise and soak up the positive ions at the beach. A personalised lifestyle program drawing on Yoga, Ayurveda and other holistic modalities addresses the many social and personal issues we have from living in a bustling competitive city.  Including stress, anxiety, insomnia, addiction, injury, ageing, etc. Thereby allowing the client to re-energise their life on their terms.

Sign up for and learn more about this life-changing and reenergising yoga therapy retreat overlooking by the sea.

Zoe is an IT professional who was once a modern single mother exhausted by corporate life and the stress of paying off a mortgage. Sitting for long periods of time and only having access to generic 90-minute yoga classes exacerbated the imbalance in her life.

Zoe’s 30 years of Yoga Ayurveda experience as a teacher in India and Australia led to her creating personalised programs that incorporate a healthy yogi lifestyle into the 40-hour work week of an urban adult.

Diet
When you eat are you aware of what colours you are putting into your system? Do colours make your meal look healthy? The same applies to  food. Yellow of the eggs is for strength - green my nervous system calming - red blood cleanse etc. A lot of people who eat browns - processed foods - a plate completely of the one colour feels and heavy bogged down.

Zoe Campbell

Zoe used to be office-bound, stay up late at night, and function purely on adrenalin. She felt the crippling lack of calm and peace in her life, and needed balance. Then one day Zoe passed by a yoga studio called “Vivant” across the road from her busy recruitment office on Pitt Street in the middle of Sydney. The Yoga studio based their teachings on the internationally renowned yoga teacher BKS Iyengar. This peaceful sanctuary fundamentally changed Zoe’s life. Initially during her lunch breaks and then after work, she would go to the studio and learn about yoga, meditation, breathing, relaxing and building on a relationship she had started with the ancient philosophy of yoga years before.

Zoe first learned about yoga, retreating from technology on a houseboat in Kashmir in 1985 where she purchased her first yoga book the ‘Light on Yoga’ by BKS Iyengar. The Iyengar yoga style is based on precision, a perfect foundation for yoga to enter her life. The stretching, exercises and sensations connected Zoe with her body and ultimately started  her on the path to find a balanced life. Zoe’s experience as an urban professional allows her to empathize with working women whose bodies and spirits crave a healthy balance.

Like that yoga studio in the centre of Sydney, Zoe makes yoga therapy programs accessible to more people and yet she does this in the tradition of the ancient Indian teachings learnt abroad on many trips to India that followed.

Life journey

Zoe is more than a yoga teacher, she is a coach who deeply understands not only how to navigate an unbalanced professional life, but also how to navigate grief, physical disabilities and mental illnesses. After losing her first son Zoe dived into her understanding of her inner self, with Buddhist meditation and a lot of self-development, transpersonal work. Losing a child is a very deep and transformative change to a person’s life. As a result of this, Zoe began to unpack her life, it was like a jigsaw puzzle she began to put together and out of it came an excellent coach for people in stress, anxiety, grief, money issues, addiction issues, trauma, post-traumatic stress. From her own life journey,  bringing up her now 28 year old son, completing a BA Dip Ed as a single mom, running a recruitment agency, a computer coach at TAFE for clients with special needs and caring for a sibling with an acquired brain injury - Zoe has gained a wealth of life skills to bring the body and mind back into a state of balance.  Australian Association of Yoga Therapists | Svastha Yoga Ayurveda Therapist | Hatha Yoga Teacher | BA Dip Education Technology / Special needs
