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 has an immense appreciation for the breath, and for building our capacity to put a pause before our reactions. She incorporates pranayama into her classes, aiding students to bring mind and body together through the focus on breath.
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!
Megs always starts her classes with time to turn inward, arriving into your practice and allowing you time to find a little space & stillness before moving into a grounding beginning.
I believe that practicing yoga is so important for maintaining good mental and physical wellbeing.
I have been on my yoga journey for the past 11 years and I’ve been teaching for the past four years, I am grateful be able share my passion for yoga with others.
I completed my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training in 2017 at Santosha Yoga Institute on the small island of Nusa Lembongan in Indonesia; this course allowed my to take the next step in my yoga journey and begin teaching. I am currently completing my Masters of Physiotherapy after previously completing my Bachelor of Exercise Science at La Trobe University. In my studies I enjoy continuing to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body and integrate this knowledge into my yoga teaching.
I enjoy teaching Vinyasa and vitalising flow where we focus on creating more energy within the body through a sequence of poses, whilst improving both strength and flexibility. My classes encourage you find more internal focus and listen to what your body needs, fostering mindfulness and deeper self connection. I hope to practice yoga everyday to keep my body, mind and soul healthy and happy.
