Restorative Yoga and Sound Therapy for Cancer Survivors
For centuries humans have used sound, vibration, meditation and yoga as a means of calming the mind and soothing the body. Modern-day research has proven what our ancestors knew intuitively, that music and body movement possess therapeutic benefits. Utilizing a combination of these modalities, this class provides a 60 minute restorative yoga and sound therapy experience that focuses on relaxation and rejuvenation. Open to cancer survivors in any stage of their journey, participants can choose to rest comfortably or gently move through simple stretches while receiving the healing benefits of sound from a variety of instruments: singing bowls, chimes, drums and gongs. Blankets, cushions andmats are available for use. This class is offered by Scripps Clinic, Torrey Pines and is made possible by generous donors to Scripps. For more information please call[masked]. Meet us in the Yoga Room at Shiley Pavilion.

What we're about

My heart for Zen Soul Balance is to inspire healthy lives. Though this certainly includes diet and fitness, the larger vision is to encourage individuals and communities to reach beyond nutrition and exercise, to consider the whole person – a lifestyle that embraces the unity of body, mind and spirit as the catalyst for optimal health and wellness.

Profoundly influenced by my little sister, Olivia and her struggle with cerebral palsy, ZSB was birthed as a means of caring for people from all walks of life, who desperately want to live above physical and mental dis-ease but don’t know where to begin or what to do. I believe that every individual possesses the ability to heal themselves from within and be resilient in the face of life’s toughest challenges.

Just as a lotus flower begins its growth at the bottom of muddy, murky water, and slowly emerges toward the surface as a beautiful blossom, I aspire to guide people to a beautiful life despite their story, wounds, challenges and fears.

As ZSB matures, the commitment to making a positive contribution to the world continues by expanding wellness offerings and adding passionate and qualified professionals to help guide individuals and communities through the deep inner work required for healing and health. ZSB offers support and coaching practices that are custom tailored to help people find freedom so that they can experience unprecedented levels of joy, boundless love for life, and a brave reconnection with themselves.

Based in San Diego, Jeny and Mark lead weekly yoga, sound therapy, mindfulness/meditation, and nutrition classes for yoga studios and corporations locally and abroad. They also work closely with healthcare providers to offer wellness programing for patients struggling with long term illnesses such as cancer and multiple sclerosis. They are passionate about serving their community and volunteer with non-profit organizations: The Sean O'Shea Foundation, Live+Breathe, Urban Surf 4 Kids, Miracle 139, Oceana, and Surfrider Foundation.
