Zoe began her yoga experience at age 10 in preparation to become a cheerleader at St. Lawrence School in Greece, NY.

Yoga for Zoe is about quieting her mind, looking within and practicing asana (poses and postures) as a distraction to the hustle bustle of life. “My yoga practice is an opportunity to slow down and express my gratitude for our many blessings.”

Managing chronic spinal pain from a work-related injury in addition to persistently tight calf and thigh muscles has enabled Zoe to appreciate the challenges others may have with a yoga practice. She is an avid golfer, gardener, and alpine skier and enjoys snowshoeing, slalom water skiing, hiking, biking, and boating.  Coupled with her degree and experience as an orthopedic, sports, TMJ, vestibular, perinatal and pelvic floor physical therapist, Zoe combines her medical expertise with her Iyengar yoga teacher training to customize a practice suitable for any health issue, personal goal or physical concern or limitation related to activities of daily living, recreation or sport.

Testimonial about Zoe~nergy

“I had sustained a broken arm and broken pelvis about 16 months ago and had several months of therapy. I was doing good but wanted to be stronger. I wanted better balance and I wanted to be able to get up off the floor without needing a piece of furniture to help me. I decided to sign up for 12 weeks of Zoe~nergy with Zoe Fackelman, PT, RYT, one to one yoga therapy. We worked my arms, legs and all parts of the body.  I learned a lot and now I am much better. I reached all my goals. I know what to do at home now to keep in shape. I would recommend Zoe~nergy to anyone who has had an injury or someone who feels the need for an individualized yoga program. I am now back to where I was several years ago. It was a great workout!”
