"And as dreams are essential to the psyche, wildness is to life.
We are animal in our blood and in our skin. We were not born for pavements and escalators but for thunder and mud. More. We are animal not only in body but in spirit. Our minds are the minds of wild animals. Artists, who remember their wildness better than most, are animal artists, lifting their heads to sniff a quick wild scent in the air, and they know it unmistakably, they know the tug of wildness to be followed through your life is buckled by that strange and absolute obedience. ('You must have chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star,' wrote Nietzsche.) Children know it as magic and timeless play. Shamans of all sorts and inveterate misbehavers know it; those who cannot trammel themselves into a sensible job and life in the suburbs know it."

I am rooted but i flow.
Zoe Roots stands for the reunion with our deepest roots. It´s within our nature to move, breathe and explore. To honor this inner nature I offer courses that connect you with your deepest self. By exploring movement, art and nature in an authentic way, you´ll gain the ability to operate in the present and follow your intuition.
I use the tools of ancient Yoga wisdom and effective Pilates training to create a greater body mind connection. Sacred Cacao Ceremonies crack your heart open and lead you to a journey of bliss. In our Roots workshops we will dive deeper into the precious knowledge of human body, nature and art.
No matter where you´re at in life, our calling is to provide you a peaceful foundation upon which your seed of exploration can grow and evolve.
As a Greek German soul with a spirit of adventure, my identity was never based on one thing. I am a photographer, yoga teacher, waterwoman, ceramic artist, little shaman, surfer, writer, daughter, sister, friend and nature lover. We are what we live for and thats the message I want to share through my work.
Do you want to learn more about my qualifications?
I see life as an interplay of giving and receiving inspiration and love. The classes I teach, are based on my knowledge, experience and empathy for my surrounding. As a qualified Yoga Alliance member, I received my teaching certifications in India, Costa Rica and Germany and completed my 500hrs YTT. During a long journey around Africa and South America, I gained more experience in yoga and healing rituals. Today I feel honored to share my love for movement and art all over the world. Based in Stuttgart but with a heart in the whole wide world, Zoe Roots offers workshops and ceremonies wherever travels and circumstances lead.
