Instructor Training on the Gold Coast

Become a ZEN•GA™ Instructor

ZEN•GA™ IS A SYNERGISTIC BLEND OF MIND-BODY MODALITIES, SUPPORTED BY THE LATEST FINDINGS IN FASCIAL FITNESS.

ZEN represents the search for inner discovery, while YOGA symbolizes a pathway to reach it. Together they form ZEN•GA, a teaching modality based on Four Mindful Movement Principles. Learn to consciously connect the body and the mind through the synthesis of movement applications. Through intention and imagery, ZEN•GA will unleash the body from tension and bring more clarity to the mind.

Foundation Courses

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.

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.
