Zoe Mantarakis is an Assistant Professor of Practice at UT Austin, and the creator of the curriculum for UT's new for-credit yoga program for undergraduates in the Department of Kinesiology. She has a BA in Philosophy from UC Berekeley and over 17+ years teaching experience in the Austin yoga community. She has a deep appreciation for yogic philosophy, Sanskrit, and the meditative arts as they influence her vinyasa and hatha practices. Zoe has a unique way of breathing depth into every class by offering a multi-layered approach to the practice; weaving philosophy and personal experience into all of her teachings. She has a skillful eye for anatomy, alignment, and precision therapeutics and she adheres to the belief that yoga is a healing art, always aimed at reminding one of one's wholeness. Studying with Zoe, whether in a one hour public class, or in one of her training series is always an enlightening and enriching experience for her students.
Zoe is available for one-on-one or small group sessions.
These sessions can be held in your home or booked at a local studio near you. Private Sessions with Zoe provide a safe place to explore a new and budding practice, or offer an opportunity for you to take your practice deeper by receiving individual instruction on challenging poses with attention to form and alignment and the needs of your particular body.
Small-group sessions are a great idea for girls nights, bridal weekends, post-marathon, corporate team-building and more! Some favorite private events include wine-tasting Yoga evenings, restorative Yoga workshops, and beginner introductory sessions.
Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout, yoga will help your body relax while stretching, strengthening, and lengthening the muscles you were just working on.
One-on-one sessions with Zoe offer you just what you need, when and where you need it. Book today!
Periodically, Zoe offers this informal Study Circle in her home studio. Yogis gather for deeper studies in meditation, mantra, and to focus on form in asana. We read from the book "Fundamentals of Yoga," "Light on Yoga," "The Yoga Sutras" and other seminal texts., and often engage in a round-table discussion of a topic, followed by journaling and introspection during meditation. Our asana practice often involves partner-work and hands-on assists, as well as props for alignment and tips for taking your practice deeper.
