Beyond Collaboration into Celebration

What makes this course so incredibly special is the unqiue friendship that bonds these two women. Both originally from the UK their paths are eerily similar and mutually supportive.

Both Zoe and Bex lost parents to cancer aged 11. Zoe, her father and Bex, her mother. For both, this ignited an interest in alternative healing modalities and a fascination with the power inherent within our bodies. For Zoe this meant pursing Traditional Chinese Medicine, Raw food and healing, and for Bex this ultimately meant a love affair with Yoga. Yet their quest did not stop with the physical, but both their paths of Yoga and Taoism, led them to explore deep questions around Life, cultivating true happiness, staying true to ones own soul and how to give back to this world that gives so much. Both of these women travelled the world, learning and doing their best to give where they could. Both have weaved direct action, social justice and environmental conservation through their lives.

Zoe and Bex met in Bali over a decade ago. In that time they formed a lifelong friendship where at times they catch one another, guide one another and support one another the best they can. This course is a culmination of this sincere friendship and a deep trust that by combing forces they can offer something back to women, greater than what they could do alone.

About Zoe

Zoe is extremely passionate about sharing the art and science of Chinese medicine, from a perspective of the five spirits, and how they are expressed though our body, mind and emotions. Zoe began studying Chinese medicine twenty years ago, and her fascination and wonder for this profound, complex, and yet simple philosophy, and way of living grows stronger every year. Zoe is particularly passionate about sharing this information with women to create more balance and wellbeing through greater understanding of our cycles, yinyang, elemental influences and a modern take on a Taoist lifestyle.

As a budding conservationist from a young age, Zoe has always been particularly passionate about the health and wellbeing of our beautiful planet and so in 2020 the seeds she planted in my heart as a child finally fruited into a tree planting project called ‘The Tree Tribe’ in Antigua, West Indies, where she grew thousands of fruit trees and gave them away to the local community, schools, churches and development projects on the island to build more awareness of the importance of trees. In twenty years the next generation will enjoy the fruits of this mission.

Zoe also strongly believes that medicine should be available to those that cannot afford it, so between 2015-2017 she went to Nepal three times to volunteer on an outreach project called ‘The Acupuncture Relief Project.’ She worked with many other practitioners providing primary care and acupuncture to the people in the Himalayas that had no access to medical care. Zoe treated twenty patients a day for six months at a time.

Zoe was fortunate enough to also bridge the worlds from the land to the sea and worked on many boats across many oceans offering my services to the elite, which installed in her a deep love of the ocean.

About Bex

Bex has studied yoga at university level whilst also spending trillions of hours on a yoga mat. She has taught thousands of women and trained hundreds of teachers. In short, Yoga is her passion and her constant companion and most intimate friend. It has sustained her through the kaleidoscope of life. He has been her guide through grief, her therapy after a freak accident, an antidote to stress & anxiety as well as a precursor for love and adventure! 

Her homeland is Scotland and she carries its rich wilderness and myths in her heart wherever she goes. She grew up with a passion for social and environmental justice which led to her gaining a MPhil graduate degree in Development Studies at Oxford University.

The results of this maverick position has led her to teach yoga in some unlikely places including Bali's largest prison, in refugee camps in Palestine, trafficked children in Nepal and sex workers and women branded as witches in Bengal and Jharkhand, India.

Bex has been a resident teacher at the Yoga Barn in Ubud Bali since 2009. This has afforded her with a wealth of experience. She teaches Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Yin/ Yang, Yin, Yoga therapy, Restorative yoga, Acroyoga, Thai Massage as well as the art of teaching, yoga history, philosophy and mythology.

Her work combines the practice and movement of yoga with its deeper roots through intensive research and study of its rich history and philosophy, resulting in a unique and sophisticated approach to yoga that questions the mainstream narrative created by mass media and corporations and is of specific benefit to women's holistic health.

She has been guided by some fantastic yoga and menstruality teachers including Denise Payne, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Angela Farmer and Alexandra Pope.
