Join Zach's email list for event announcements and extra info. He won't overwhelm your inbox, either.
Zach’s practice is rooted in the wisdom of yoga as therapy, practical ayurveda, tantra philosophy, and other contemporary systems (Hannah Somatics & Feldenkrais). His goal through both group and private work is to facilitate authentic and transformative experiences that lead to empowerment, self-understanding, and compassion.
He began formal studies in 2008, and hasn’t stopped seeking since. Zach’s certifications include Yoga Instructor (E-RYT 200, RYT-500 in-training), Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist (AYS), Ayurvedic Health Counselor (AHC), and SomaYoga Therapist. This combined skill-set gives way to a multi-faceted approach to healing; one that does not fit rigidly in only the body, the mind, or the spirit, but rather weaves fluidly between them.
His gratitude extends deeply to the lineage of teachers who have come before him, including Yogarupa Rod Stryker, Dr. Rosy Mann, Kathryn Templeton, James Tennant, Jim Bennitt, Molly McManus, and Ann Maxwell, among many additional inspirational mentors.
In his free time, Zach enjoys playing games with his husband and friends, hiking midwest forests with their two dogs, rock wall climbing, and cooking delicious food. He also handcrafts ayurvedic self-care products for his company, Element Ayurvedic Apothecary.
