Welcome to Zen Studios

We’re an eco-friendly studio and Eco-Chic boutique where clients come to have a profound health and wellness experience with their bodies. Feel confident knowing that all of our regularly scheduled yoga teachers are at least RYT-200 or higher.  With 20+ yoga and barre classes per week, we are certain that you will find the perfect class that will allow you to stretch and strengthen, tone and tighten and enhance your mind-body connection.  In addition to health and wellness classes, Zen Studios also offers workshops and teacher trainings as well as therapeutic massage, Reiki and acupuncture services. Stop in today to see what all the buzz is about!

Being Eco-Friendly is very important to Zen Studios. When we do well for the planet and our environment, we all benefit. So, what makes us “green”?

 

The awning outside and our tinted windows provide passive cooling in the summer and heat retention in the winter allowing us to limit energy consumption.

In addition to being certified as “cradle-to-cradle,” the Shaw berber-style carpet in our boutique has jute backing and is recyclable.
Our countertop is constructed of Teragren bamboo and the paint throught the studio is Harmony Low-VOC (volatile organic compound) from Sherwin Williams.
The flooring in the yoga studio is made from an FSC certified hardwood and is sustainably harvested.
We have even gone so far as to install Bio-VCT tile in the bathrooms! The Bio-VCT is more eco-concious and is adhered with non-toxic adhesive. All of the lightbulbs throughout the studio are CFL’s or LED’s to maximize energy efficiency.

In addition to clothing made of traditional materials like cotton and modal, our “eco-chic” boutique carries clothing lines that utilize sustainable fibers like organic cotton, bamboo and hemp. These fabrics feel ahhh-mazing against the skin!

The yoga mats we offer for use are by JADE yoga. They are made of open-cell, natural rubber (a renewable resource) and are PVC-free. Plus, as an added bonus, Jade plants a tree for every yoga mat sold, so we have helped plant more than 25 trees before we even opened our doors!

Imagine a yoga class without mats.

Instructors Liz Finley and Lisa Muehlenbein, above, demonstrate some of the positions they use during AntiGravity yoga.

Instead, participants use a piece of thin fabric to swing, sway, swoop and hang upside-down above the floor.

“It’s liberating,” said Alice Armstrong after her first experience. “It exceeded my expectations.”

When Lisa Muehlenbein, owner of Zen Studios, made the announcement that she would begin offering AntiGravity yoga — a type of aerial yoga — she said the first class filled up in two days.

“People are interested to see what it’s all about,” she said. “It’s new. It’s different…continue reading…
