Wellness is so much more than exercise or lack of illness! It is all about personal choices and lifestyle. Every day we select foods and prioritize activities that can improve or challenge our overall wellness. Emotions and the body so highly connected that depression and anger can cause physical pain. People matter. Your beliefs about the Universe and your place in it can guide you to harmony. At Zen and Vitality, we offer tools and guidance for all the dimensions of wellness. Which ones do you want to strengthen next?
8 Dimensions of Wellness
Wellness is the compete integration of body, mind, and spirit – the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being. – Greg Anderson
Simple Ways to Build a Wellness Lifestyle
Zoa has assisted me in my personal wellness journey from the outside in. What started as occasionally attending Friday night yoga to relax and recharge at the end of a stressful week has gradually become a lifestyle change. I greatly appreciate her tenaciously nudging me into a more consistently conscious way of living!
In her fitness classes, Zoa supports clients in developing and being accountable to their goals while encouraging them to embrace new ones. I’ve done yoga for years but had never tried barre or Pilates; nor knew what fascial release was — but I don’t think I could live without it now! At the beginning of each session she asks participants for input regarding bodily needs and preferences, and tailors the activity accordingly. She is attentive to all attendees, offering gentle corrections or assistance as needed to ensure everyone gets what they need. She also seems to magically say just what I need to hear at times, both on and off the mat!
In addition to a variety of exercise classes, Zoa offers adjunctive programs running the gamut of health and wellness. She has natural products for sale and hosts unique workshops which open the mind and encourage exploration and self-care. She offers wellness tools I’ve never heard of but which have had swift visible benefit, such as the fascia and light therapy wands. Her guided meditations tremendously help me sleep. And through her partnerships with local organic food, flower and juice purveyors I have connected with like-minded business folks and can support both their endeavors and my health.
Zoa’s passion for holistic life is obvious and inspiring. I’m happy to be working with her and trying out new things, which is propelling me to feel more grounded, centered, and strong.Jackie, Psychotherapist
Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever. – Greg Anderson
