Zen Yoga is a holistic system. It combines all aspects of the human self by uniting the fundamental needs of physical health, mental clarity and spiritual peace. It is a spiritual discipline that works to heal the body and the mind. Zen Yoga is based on the peaceful stretching and breathing exercises of Shanti Yoga, the energized breathing philosophy of Qigong, the flowing movements of Tai Chi and the mental serenity achieved through Zen meditation. Zen Yoga is much more than a set of physical exercises. Through integration of body, mind and spirit Zen Yoga creates flexibility, health, vitality and peace of mind.



Zen Yoga was created by Aaron Hoopes and is based on a few very simple concepts:

SLOW DOWN • EXPAND YOUR HEART • NOURISH YOUR BODY

CALM YOUR MIND • HONOR YOUR SPIRIT • LOVE YOURSELF
