About Z Health Studio
Hi, my name is Zuri (which is Swahili and means ‘beautiful’) I have over 30 years of teaching experience including qualifications in Exercise to Music, Step, Swiss Ball, Yoga, Zumba, Pilates, Yin Yoga and more.
With a background in modern contemporary dance and a passion for health, fitness, and well-being I have the energy to motivate and inspire you.
Through movement, breath, and stillness the pathway to health is available to all and I have dedicated my life to living an active lifestyle that has continually included movement from the age of 5 when I began with ballet and tap to Yoga, Pilates & Swiss Ball right now.
“When I was young I used to push myself hard through dance and exercise but when I discovered Yoga in 1998 I began to slow down and found a softness about being me, my body has not changed much in the last 20 years but what has changed is how I feel about my body and that is the key to good health. Through Pilates, I have strengthened on the inside so that now I move with grace, flow, and beauty and it is my passion to show everyone that freedom of movement that we all have.”
I am a member of the NZ Register of Exercise Professionals and I bring a wealth of knowledge about how the body moves, how the breath is the key in all movement and how slow controlled movements is where your true strength is located.
I look forward to meeting you.
