Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow." Reach that shelf with today's Groupon: for $15, you get five drop-in classes at The Zen Zone in Lee's Summit (a $70 value).
The Zen Zone offers students of all experience levels a bevy of relaxing, drop-in classes guided by passionate instructors. Yoga pupils can focus on a variety of practice styles, including Vinyasa-flow yoga, which works to align the body’s movements with breathing and dancing, sentient wind spirits. Zen Hatha yoga immerses students in foundational postures and poses, and hot yoga loosens muscles and sloughs off water weight in studios heated to 95 degrees. Yoga 101 and gentle-flow yoga classes are available, as are chair-yoga classes—ideal for chairs stressed out by rigid routines and involuntary participation in bar fights. Check the schedule for a full description of course offerings.
When Ruthann Zentner began studying yoga, she soon realized that its focused breathing, emphasis on enhancing flexibility, and core-strengthening poses could help people of any age achieve mental and physical wellness. Throughout her yoga journey, she spent time working with Shakta Khalsa, a renowned children's yoga instructor, which inspired her to educate children through engaging stories and kid-friendly yoga classes as a certified yoga storyteller. Within the teal-green walls and dark wood floors of the studio, kids limber up while having fun during yoga-centered games, working off the stresses of filing lemonade-stand taxes. Adult students learn the basics in beginner-level yoga classes, or strengthen their cores and improve their balance in PiYo, which merges elements of Pilates and yoga into high-intensity routines. For her older students and those unable to do floor work, she partners poses with four-legged props in chair yoga.
Ruthann also trained under Sadie Nardini, an empowerment speaker, yoga and anatomy expert, and Healthy Hedonism lifestyle leader, and received training in ZenBarre, which combines strength, flexibility and cardio. At Zen Zone, she strives to share the latest trends and practices in yoga and Pilates with her students.
