Remove Your Obstacles to a Healthy Body and Mind

Humans are complex and so are their problems! Zoa brings together many areas of health and wellness to focus on the following types of common problems in creative ways that really work! Don’t see yours? Ask anyway because 6 specialties is already a lot to put on this page!

Feel Better Not Older!

Do You Know …

We start aging in our mid twenties!

Significant changes occur in our 40’s that impact future health for both women and men.

Health matters weigh more heavily on us in our 50’s & 60’s – especially if we have spent years prioritizing others first.

Aging can be slow and gentle when wellness becomes a high priority to your daily life. It is never too late to feel better not older!

There are so many ways you can proactively choose wellness over disease:

  • the food you eat
  • purposeful movement of your entire body
  • the pattern and quality of your sleep
  • environmental and personal toxin exposure
  • beneficial light exposure
  • stress management
  • laughter, and more!

Here, we work on them all!

Testimonial

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.
