The coronavirus pandemic has changed all of our lives in so many ways. Zero Balancing classes are no exception. COVID-19 has impacted the manner in which we are able to offer in-person ZB classes and has provided new challenges in how we safeguard the health of our students, our classes and our faculty.

In order to register for this class, you will need to have read and agreed to the 
Covid In Class Protocols, Guidelines and Waiver.

ZB by the Sea is the annual residential ZB program in Mexico. The name stays the same, but the context ever evolves. The program is designed to be a multidimensional experience of deepening one's understanding of ZB and creating a container for personal growth, rejuvenation and change. This is all done in an atmosphere and environment of support, both by nature and your peers, while using time-honored rituals to enhance the wonders and intensity of the retreat. Highlights include a Day of Conscious Choice, a Temescal (sweat lodge), whale watching, and a night of music and dancing.

This years theme will be ‘The Restorative ZB & Cultivating Inspiration’. While restoration is built into every ZB after the past few stressful years we want to highlight and teach ways to make your ZB sessions even more healing and effective with new fulcrums to enhance this process. 
Fritz has decided due to personal factors he will not be attending so Peter Woodgate will be assisting Michael for the week.
