Suzanne is an international advocate for inclusive, non judgmental, supportive yoga classes for ALL BODIES. She is a pioneer in Plus Size Fitness and created the FIRST plus size yoga class in North America in 2002. She specializes in Beginner, Plus Size and Senior yoga and teaches a variety of classes including Hatha, Restorative and Yin. She has practiced yoga for 20+ years and has trained 100+ instructors on yoga modifications and how to work with diverse body types. To read Suzanne's full bio, click here.
FitZonePLUS exists because many people of ALL shapes, sizes & abilities find typical yoga & fitness studios intimidating and/or irritating.
FitZonePLUS is different...in fact there is no other studio like ours in the world that we know of! We provide a supportive, judgment free environment more like a community not a 'gym' and offer unique yoga and fitness classes to suit many abilities and ALL bodies. We take into account diverse body types from petit to plus size, age, mobility, injuries and craft our classes in a way that make them accessible to most. If one class isn't right for you...there will be another that is.
Our client demographic is broad, from petit to plus size, 20's to 70's.
EVERYONE WHO SHARES OUR PHILOSOPHY OF NO ATTITUDE IS WELCOME!
Everything you need is provided including premium yoga matts and props in ALL of our classes at no extra charge.
Of note if you are plus size:
Every one of our instructors has been carefully chosen and they have all been trained on plus size modifications/options and etiquette. They are kind, supportive and non judgmental. (read testimonials here) It is EXTREMELY rare for instructors to have this training as, sadly, it is not taught in 99% of yoga and fitness trainings. (Suzanne, FitZonePLUS owner, is currently on a mission to change this! Read Suzanne's bio HERE)
If any of the above has resonated with you...do yourself a favour...attend a class - just one class - one hour of your life. Perhaps it will change your life.
Lithe, model-like people wearing glute enhancing leggings, while twisting into poses 99% of the population won't ever be able to do...this is NOT yoga. Sadly, this typical depiction is what causes many people to think they 'can't do yoga' because they 'can't touch their toes'. Not true.
Yoga meets you where you're at. As long as you choose the right class for your level and the right studio environment, there is a class for everyone. At FitZonePLUS, we use props and offer modifications for most poses, in every class. ALL of our instructors are trained to work with diverse body types. We have classes from beginner to intermediate levels and offer many super relaxing restorative and yin yoga type classes. We also provide premium yoga mats and props free of charge so you don't have to lug them around all day.
Feel free to send an email or call if you need help in choosing the right class to start with.

& Mind Body
Cate can identify with her clients having struggled with her own weight and self-image for most of her life. After trying all the wrong ways to lose weight and be happy with her body, she finally found success with playful exercise and realised that she was always at her happiest when being active. She learned to make holistic lifestyle changes, helping her to find her inner athlete and repairing her relationship with food.
Cate’s philosophy is that exercise is most effective when it is fun. She believes that the more fun you are having, the more you will want to stick with it and keep coming back. She likes to keep her workouts creative and accessible to everyone, while still being challenging enough to help you reach your goals.
“I have found such joy in being active and healthy! I became a Personal Trainer because I want to share that feeling with others.
I hope that I can help inspire people to make the changes they need to love themselves more and enjoy their lives to the fullest.”

I can't open a studio everywhere but I CAN bring yoga to you! Practice privately, with family, friends or kids, or create your own yoga group in your living room, office, hotel room, condo gym, or outside! Virtual classes through Skype are similar to being in the same room. I demo, cue and adjust as I would if we were in the same room. I can see you and you can see me. It's become a 'go to' method for well known instructors and personal trainers with celebrity clients such as Mandy Ingber.
Making it to your mat is the hardest part of yoga. No travel time required, thus skype makes it easier to commit and show up every time!
Choose from Beginner, Restorative, Yin, Happy Knees, Chair Yoga, Flow, Yoga w/Weights or a combination. Sessions will be carefully created just for YOU, for the body you have TODAY! All you need is a yoga mat, strap, yoga blocks + Skype.
