The ZEN•GA™ program is a teaching modality that consciously connects the body and the mind. Throughout the work, the power lies not only in the movement itself, but rather on a purposeful intention while we move. Through intention and imagery, ZEN•GA™ will unleash the body from tension and bring more clarity to the mind. We use various props to support the body and to create a focal point to direct our breath allowing for more fluidity and ease in the physical body.
ZEN•GA™ Program choices:
- Instructor Foundation Course, Mat
- Instructor Foundation Course, Equipment
After completing any of these programs students will be prepared to teach the repertoires safely, effectively and with confidence.
Our ZEN•GA™ programs provide a balanced and thorough blend of theory, observation and practical experience to help you master the repertoire. Both courses teach you workouts that are functional; combining strength, endurance, flexibility, and dynamic stability of the entire body while increasing awareness and mindfulness through movement. Provide your clients with a mindful workout that encompass the bodies’ natural rhythms developing more ease and proficiency while developing a more youthful, resilient fluid body, stimulating the neuromyofascial web of the body and hydrating the myofascial meridians.
