Zoe – Founder of Kindred Warrior
Kindred Warrior was born from a desire to bring wellness and a sense of belonging to the community. Responding to a gap in the market, Zoe launched Kindred Warrior in September 2019.
Her vision is to create a space for kindred souls to come together and experience the benefits of yoga.
Zoe is devoted to assisting students to explore and develop their practice. She brings a calming presence to her teaching, presenting ways to expand beyond our perceived limitations. She is well versed at helping students who are initially grappling with a pose by offering them a variety of options, whether it be alignment focussed cues, props or a modification. Zoe encourages students to remain non-judgemental to their experience, accepting it for what it is.
Zoe is passionate about spreading the word that Yoga is not Exercise but Innercise - a practice of strengthening the connection to Self. She is also passionate about the Neuroscience of Yoga and using it for nervous system resilience.
Estelle teaches from a place of love and compassion. She sees the practice of yoga as a therapy for the mind and soul and considers herself very fortunate to share her yoga experiences with others.
She enjoys supporting students along their respective journeys and believes a yoga practice helps us understand the connection\ disconnection between mind and body.
Her Vinyasa style classes encourage students to dive into the self-transformation that yoga provides. With unique and fluid sequencing she encourages you to switch off your auto-pilot and practice in a more mindful and present way.
Estelle first discovered the power of yoga whilst studying at Uni in 2002. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, she got to know many yoga styles and was always eager to learn more about the practice. In 2016, Estelle moved to Melbourne attending as many classes and workshops as she could find. It was in an anatomy based workshop where Estelle experienced a sense of home and community that inspired her to follow the path of teaching yoga.
Yoga has been a guiding light in Marjon's life for the past decade. It's shaped big life decisions such as moving from the US, traveling abroad, and migrating to Melbourne in 2015. She has participated in foundational and advanced teacher training courses in Asia & Australia -- all of which have cultivated her deep desire and passion to study, practice, and teach Yoga today. She continues to pursue further Yoga studies to stay inspired, grounded, and informed as a Yoga instructor.
Marjon loves spending time in nature -- living in the Dandenong Ranges with her partner Sam and their puppy Naga. In her free time, she loves reading, cooking, traveling, gardening, and being inspired by the beauty of Mother Nature. Her family all remain overseas, but Marjon keeps in touch and looks forward to hosting them here for a holiday one day soon!
I started practising yoga 8 years ago to complement my Meditation practice, and have found that Yoga has not only deepened my Meditation practice but also improved my wellbeing and overall health. I’m passionate about the mental and physical benefits of Yoga, and how it can help us to connect with ourselves and others in a more meaningful way. I like to teach classes with an emphasis on present moment awareness and calming the mind. Apart from Yoga and Meditation, I like to play music, I mainly play guitar and bass guitar. I also love hiking out in nature, which I find to be very calming and grounding.
Isabel began a regular yoga practice around 3 years ago, from this she quickly developed a deep connection and sense of grounding with the many aspects of yoga. After a long lockdown and feeling stuck in the day to day, she went on the complete her Yoga Teacher Training in 2021 and knew she had found her passion.
Isabel is eager to share the powerful practice of yoga, breath and meditation with her students. Her classes are energising and supportive, where students can feel present in their body and mind each time they step on the mat. Isabel is currently training to become a qualified breathwork, meditation, kriya and mantra teacher. She is looking forward to weaving these powerful practices into her classes.
When she’s not teaching, Isabel enjoys moving her body doing her own yoga practice or going to the gym, getting out in nature, reading, cooking, gardening and is learning how to knit.
