Zen is a yoga instructor specializing in Vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on aligned strength training and restorative breath work. While yoga has been a tremendous grounding force in his life, his background also includes Capoeira, music education and musical performance. Zen encourages his students to find their personal edge without sacrificing comfort or sustainability. He believes the best way to work with students is to supply clear goals versus vague maxims; to that end, he strives to help practitioners gain a better mental image of their body as they move through space. And, yes, “Zen” is his legal name, given to him by his parents.
