Description: Take a private or small group yoga session to unlock your personal energy, build strength and confidence, increase energy, clear the mind, and help you find your own inner wisdom. Zara's unique teaching style, encouragement and motivating nature will inspire you to use yoga to enhance health, joy and delight in your life.
The session starts with a small interview (or an ayurvedic consultation if the student wishes), to understand your specific needs, then an instantaneously customized series of exercises and cooling stretches ending with a meditative relaxation. Sessions can whatever mixture of physically challenging and therapeutic you are seeking. In any event, it will be fun allowing you to tap into that inner child!.
An avid practitioner and teacher of yoga for much of her adult life, Zara began her studies with intensive courses in Ashtanga (series of vigorous postures linked together by careful attention to the breath) moving on to regular study of the Jivamukti method (use of Ashtanga postures in varying sequence set to inspirational music). More recently she has begun to explore the cosmic connections between yoga and rhythm through courses in African and Afro-Carribean dance. For the last three years, she has become deeply immersed in Buddhist meditation techniques, both on an intellectual and practical level, and maintains a daily practice of meditating for an hour or more. Zara believes that her teaching practice is the natural culmination of her lifelong exploration of humanity, and the mind-body phenomenon that makes us special. She has learned to speak Spanish, spent several years living in Spain, Russia, Japan, Ghana and Costa Rica and has acquired extensive knowledge of astrology, universal mythology and the mystical practices of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Just back from a life changing six month trek through India, Zara has a reserve of pearly wisdom to share with her students. In addition to India, Zara has also traveled throughout large parts of Europe, Asia, West Africa and Latin America, all the while solidifying her core belief that we are each a distinct expression of a common divinity.
