ZEN•GA™, by the fitness experts at Merrithew Health and Fitness™, is an innovative fusion of exercise science and mindful movement that brings about clarity of the mind while releasing body tension through purposeful movement.
ZEN•GA™ is an innovative fusion of exercise science and mindful movement that brings about clarity of the mind while releasing body tension through purposeful movement. ZEN represents the search for inner discovery, while YOGA symbolizes the way 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 allow you to become aware of how the body and the mind move in tandem. ZEN•GA focuses on core stability, stamina, and resilience while attaining a state of presence. The increase in demand on your neuromuscular system allows you to reap the benefits of improved strength, clarity, and overall fitness.
Small props and the revolutionary V2 Max Plus™ Reformer* along with exclusive accessories are utilized to add variety and challenge to many ZEN•GA programs, while the consistency of flow movements engage every muscle, heighten body awareness and enhance the mind-body connection.
Whether you are looking to take a specific ZEN•GA course, participate in a continuing education workshop, or complete the full training and certification process, we have what you need!
