ZEN•GA is a unique mind-body modality that fuses elements of Pilates, yoga, martial arts and meditation into a series of flowing movements that emphasize the breath and strengthen both body and mind. Using props and equipment, these accessible workouts are playful yet powerful, emphasizing smooth transitions, intention of the movements and focusing on the personal physical effects of movement paired with deep breathing. The gateway to a mind-body practice, ZEN•GA is designed to stimulate the fascial system and build endurance, strength, mobility and stability while cultivating a greater sense of physical awareness that extends beyond the workout experience.

Foundation Courses

The ZEN•GA Mat & Equipment Foundation Courses teach four Mindful Movement Principles and show how to apply them to movement sequences that emphasize proper breathing and posture and vary in tempo, load and intensity. Participants will benefit in all areas of wellness, from muscular strength, endurance and mobility to stability without rigidity. Most importantly, they will develop an increased sense of self.

Professional Development and Continuing Education

Comprised of both mat and equipment-based material, these sessions focus on particular areas of the course, including breath, fascial lines and fluidity, for an increased depth of knowledge.
