Zoa’s Specialties

Is this you? Your wait at the doctor’s office was long enough to grow 2 new grey hairs. Doc rushed in and out like a hurricane barely having time to write a prescription let alone discuss your concerns and answer your questions. You like your Doc but man do you wish you had someone who listens and works WITH you on your health.

That doesn’t happen here! “Zoa is like a ray of hope and sunshine.” – from a chronic mold illness client

Zen and Vitality with Zoa helps you create and maintain your own vitality of life and a zen state of being through wellness lifestyle choices rather than medication and surgery.

“I know that you will always guide me in the right way and that you’ve always got my interests at heart.” – from a Functional Wellness Roadmap and Pilates client

Zoa has curated knowledge and equipment from around the world. She honors both ancient healing knowledge and advocates forward thinking. All of this is available to you along with her expert guidance about what to use, when, and why.

Want to Feel Better Not Older?


I am a 64 year old retiree and began taking instruction from Zoa in early February 2020. Because of health concerns I was searching for help. In 2018 I was diagnosed with COPD and in 2019 I experienced a major exacerbation. My wife had been taking classes with Zoa and urged me to give her a try.

Since taking 2 to 3 of her classes per week I have drastically improved my flexibility, stamina and overall strength. I am taking Fascia, Pilates and Yoga. In addition, I am considering her Meditation sessions to improve my focus and mental capabilities.

Her studio is fully equipped with all the essential tools and equipment necessary for her sessions. Additionally, with the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic, she quickly altered her sessions to include virtual availability without a hitch.

Zoa’s teaching methods are clear, concise, versatile and her concern for my personal well being and patience has been the impetus to keep me returning to her classes. She has become more than my instructor but my healthcare partner. Give her sessions a try, you’ll thank yourself later.
