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 and Guidelines and the Covid Risk and Liability 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.

We have come to realize that from the moment you register for this program, the Universe begins to act on our behalf providing insights and events around your intentions. We encourage you to make an early $350 registration deposit (fully refundable less cancellation fee until September 1, 2015) to advise us and the Universe of your intention.

Mar de Jade is located near the fishing village of Chacala, Mexico on the Pacific coast 60 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. Transportation will be arranged by Mar de Jade when they have your pertinent travel information; the price is contingent on how many people are in an individual taxi. This lovely center features a beach, swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, Aztec sweat lodge, maid-attended rooms with ocean views, massage, hiking, whale watching and yoga. The program emphasizes both in-depth teaching and practice of ZB along with rest, rejuvenation and fun, to counter the stress from our busy hectic lives at home. Come join us for “ZB by the Sea”!

Zero Balancing I and II. ZB by the Sea welcomes both returning and new participants.
