ZEN•GA Delivered by Complete Body Movement
ZEN•GA is a synergistic blend of mind-body modalities, supported by exercise science and the newest findings in fascial fitness. ZEN represents the search for inner discovery, while YOGA symbolises a pathway to reach it. Together they form ZEN•GA, which is based on Four Mindful Movement Principles: breath, support, yield and flow. When applied together, these principles bring awareness of how the body and mind move in tandem. ZEN•GA focuses on core stability, stamina and resilience while attaining a state of presence. The increase in demand on the neuromuscular system affords the benefits of improved strength, enhanced elasticity and creates a more youthful, resilient and fluid body. Using props and equipment,we stimulate the fascial system and build endurance, strength, mobility and stability while cultivating a greater sense of physical awareness. Upon completion of the Instructor Foundation Course, Mat,participants will be able to teach the ZEN•GA method of exercise. Only upon of their certificate will they be able to identify themselves as a ZEN•GA Qualified Instructor.
ZEN•GA is a teaching modality that consciously connects the body and the mind through innovative programming. This evolved methodology is a syntheses of movement applications that have been used for many years, along with information that is only recently being brought to the forefront. 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.
