About ZOE

What makes ZOE different from other local studios are the intimate classes designed to ensure that students have adequate space and individualized attention while learning about their own unique physical architecture. The ZOE approach is to adapt yoga to fit each student’s specific needs to create a more structurally balanced body, preventing injury and degeneration over a lifetime.

The Way Out of Pain

All pain comes from a dysfunctional movement pattern. These patterns can be with us from birth or learned through time. Sometimes movement dysfunction happens when there is an injury to the body or surgery. Whether you’re dealing with back pain, joint pain, scoliosis, recovery from an injury, the ZOE approach will work for you.

Alignment Based Yoga

Alignment based yoga is a classical method influenced by Iyengar yoga that uses logical sequencing to teach correct actions and intricacies of asana (postures) with an emphasis on student safety. Each class builds upon the next, giving students a link to understanding the poses, how they fit together, and tools necessary to advance to the next level and develop a home practice.

Client Testimonials
I was the MOST surprised person when my MD told me I needed Yoga to prevent further racquetball injuries. But he was right, and Zoe Lifestyle under Dina is all I needed. The stretching is strengthening muscles I was not using. No more injuries. I see her one-on-one for continued training.
I never expected to get into yoga. i never thought it was worth the time. but i hurt my back pretty bad a couple years ago. i tried a chiropractor for several months with inconsistent results. my friend suggested this yoga alignment class. out of sheer desperation i tried it, and to my surprise, my back issues were fixed within 3 months. and i was hooked. it's been 2 years now, and i am still learning. it's still challenging.
Dina is a true healer in every sense of the word..a uniquely talented compassionate life instructor..we are lucky to have her here..
I've been practicing yoga for a little over 2 1/2years to help center me and help keep my alcoholism at bay. I went from studio to studio going thru the motions but not really connecting to or understanding my practice. I happened across a restorative yoga workshop guided by Dina and she has been my teacher ever since! Although Iyengar, the method of yoga taught at Zoe, doesn't appear to have the gracefulness of vinyasa but it's grace lies in its stillness and strength. Dina told me "give me 6 months, this practice will change you".Dina's knowledge of yoga is only eclipsed by her passion to share her knowledge. The Iyengar method and practice doesn't start and finish with a class, it starts the moment you show up for your first class and it never ends! Dina will guide and help you develop your own practice thru her enthusiasm and care for her students because ultimately it's your body your practice.After 9 months of practicing with Dina, she was right it changed me. I've become freer in my everyday movements and think and hope I've become more centered?!! If you are earnest in your journey into yoga and willing to work, then attend a few classes at Zoe and see why I and others are proud to call Dina their teacher.

Patricia Casanas
I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and started going to Zoe Yoga toward the end of my second trimester when I started suffering from extreme piriformis muscle and sciatic nerve pain. Literally, after my first session with Dina, the pain began to dissipate. She is helping me focus on my alignment (especially hip), which has definitely shifted a bit during pregnancy, as well as loosening up other areas, i.e. hamstrings and mid back. I thought I had a decent understanding of the various yoga positions and proper form prior to going to Zoe; however, Dina has really educated me and increased not only my knowledge of the practice but also the benefits gained.
Dina is the best instructor in the Tampa area. She's the only one I trust sending my patients to for proper yoga instruction.

Relaxing, calming and perfect setting for class and private sessions. My body is returning to its center and its a beautiful thing, Dina is a wonderful instructor.
I have scoliosis and have had hip pain for years. I have been treating with chiropractic and neuromuscular therapy for a number of years. After 3 private sessions with Dina, my hip pain is gone! I am going to continue with Dina and look forward to moving into her regular classes, too..She is gifted!! I highly recommend Dina.
