The body never lies. ~ Martha Graham
At Zen and Vitality with Zoa, all my movement classes are intentionally limited to between 4 and 6 people. I give every person in class individual attention as much as possible in a group setting. If you need more focus, instruction, or assistance than a group class offers please request a consultation or schedule a private session with Zoa.
Zen Flow Yoga
Gentle movements and time to assess your needs are the two guides for this class. Decompress your mind and your spine. Let your breath bring focus and release. Find your Zen.
Vitality Flow Yoga
Move with your breath, generate heat, build strength, move your joints through their full range of motion, and feel alive!
When my first and only yoga teacher took a pregnancy leave of absence, I was a non-swimmer, thrown out of the boat. Two of the other students highly recommended Zoa, another former students of the same yoga teacher who had guided me through the initial phase of yoga practice. I started hopeful but not too sure what to expect. After two months, I am excited and always looking forward to the next session. Zoa’s class features a wide variety of poses every week. With insight and empathy, she tailors the session to the needs of her students, always assuring them to make whatever adjustments they need. Mind, body and spirit are always considered. She occasionally mentions one of her other classes that could offer additional help but never pushes or strongly encourages additional participation. Her kindness, perception and encouragement are a blessing to all.~Mary Jane
Zen Through Fascia

I leave fascia class feeling taller and more fluid. My hips feel more open and walking is like walking on air.Kimberly, ER Nurse
Barre for Zen
Standing Pilates focussing on alignment and balanced strength of the lower body. Inspired by Ballet positions and movements, we loosen fascia, build muscle, and always stretch! This class focussed on ankles and hips while we save our knees. A great class post foot/ankle/leg injury.
