Exploring Forward Bends with Zoe Knott

Tutor: Zoe Knott

Date: 24th February 2018

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Kesgrave Community & Conference Centre

Type of Event: IST Days

Places Available: 21


Zoe is a Diploma Course Tutor and also the DCT Training Officer.  Over 30 years of yoga practice with many different teachers from a variety of traditions has resulted in an eclectic style of teaching that has been influenced by all those she has worked with. Her fundamental approach is to build strength as the cornerstone of practice and from there all poses become possible. Asana are broken down and analysed. Zoe looks at the muscles that need to be strong or flexible and works in detail gradually building up the components of a pose.

Zoe has taken the additional BWY modules in Pranayama and Pregnancy. As well as running regular yoga classes, the Foundation Course, Teacher Training and travelling round the country giving Workshops, Zoe runs regular yoga holidays.
