Fascial fitness and fluid movement
By Dani Gonzalez Ares
Zenga™ is the one of the newest forms of movement to reach Irish shores this year. Launched in Ireland by Complete Body Movement – Ireland’s largest and only training centre for Stott Pilates™ instructor courses, as well as offering the Irish fitness industry the only teaching training course for Total Barre™; a ballet barre instructor’s course.
Zenga workouts are functional, combining strength, endurance, flexibility and dynamic stability of the entire body and thus resulting in a lower risk of injury. It encompasses the bodies natural rhythms developing more ease in our day to day activities and sport and becoming really complimentary to many other activities. It is a blend of old and new concepts in mindful movement and combines modalities such as pilates, yoga, dance, meditation, developmental movement patterns, along with current exercise science research from areas such as fascia and myofascial lines.
‘Fascia’ has become the new buzzword or trend and is now often referred to by physical therapists and fascial specialists as ‘the tissue of movement’ and Zenga programs are designed to improve the quality of our fascia, helping it to restore it to its maximum potential.
Zenga workouts will appeal to those looking for mindful movement for stress reduction and wellbeing and is suited for all levels of clients, from de-conditioned, post-rehabilitative clients, as well as world class athletes or performers. We’ll help you on the road to heightened awareness, enhanced elasticity and creating a more youthful, resilient fluid body.
