Zachary Horan is a RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance, is an MWOD Institute certified Mobility WOD Movement & Mobility Specialists Level 1 and is pursuing his Bachelors degree in Integrative Medicine at Metropolitan State University of Denver. He has been an instructor for the past two years in the Denver Metro area teaching in small personalized groups and individual settings.
Zachary grew up playing soccer, lacrosse and football. He focused on football and track in high school and was an All-State running back in the state of Colorado. He then went on to play collegiate football at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. After years of aggressive weight training, wear and tear of hitting, being tackled and the daily physical impact of football, he decided to find an activity that practiced well-being and body restoration. Zachary found Yoga and it has become a daily practice for him over the past seven years. He fell in love with the way it made his soul and body feel and is passionate to share his movement practice with others.
Zachary teaches movement from a Hatha background. Throughout his practice, he focuses on mindful breathing, proper alignment and engagement in foundational postures (asanas). With these three focuses, he practices intentional movement and holding poses to build strength, stability and flexibility in both the mind and the body. Zachary feels that Yoga is a very personal practice and believes in cultivating a strong, sturdy, yet flexible foundation.
Zachary understands that everybody and every body are “YOU”nique. Through movement practice, Zachary believes we seek to experience our edge, yet learn to respect our bodies boundaries, as they change on a day-to-day basis. Yoga is experiencing life in the present, in one moment, with one breath and with gratitude.
Zachary’s enjoys being outdoors in our beautiful state of Colorado. He enjoys hiking, camping, exploring the mountains and sharing time with loved ones. He invites you to show up with your mat, be present, work, grow and play.
