Try Us Out.
Once I became a yoga teacher I felt like I had more questions than answers, and what I wouldn’t have given to relearn the details to forward bend or revolved lateral angle, or what neutral meant again (oh, wait I was never taught that). I have worked with thousands of students, some teachers, and some simply trying to better understand how to move their bodies on and off the mat. But what I discovered several years ago is sometimes a book just won’t cut it, and the once and done methods many yoga schools use to be able to plow through content as quickly as possible to cover tons of information, leaves you the student, and now the teacher not exactly sure what you should be doing in the poses. And I get it, I questioned for years’ asana anatomy and movements, and it wasn’t until I stepped out of the yoga community that I gained a better insight to the body and then went and applied that to yoga asana. The result, simple, yet powerful tweaks and new approaches to yoga that left both me and my students with happier and healthier bodies.

“My name is Hope Zvara, I'm the creator of The HOPE Process-- Helping Others Purposefully Excel. It is through this process that I helps willing individuals learn to live in their bodies again following the three B’s: Breathe, Body, Believe. Overcoming a life strangling eating disorder and the loss of a child has inspired me to share my journey and insights with others.
With my Asana Video Library I get to teach and share with others others the dynamics of breathing, how to step back into a loving relationship with one’s body safely pose by pose-- using my Mindful Movement Matrix, and guiding eager individuals with my unique inspirational messages and insights on life to help those individuals learn to live the best life possible.
Over the past fifteen years of teaching mind-body practices I have come to see some dots that needed connecting, that there were too many methods that just didn't make sense. And as I dove into learning more about the body outside yoga, outisde "fitness" for the first time I was truly able to connect the much needed dots of my teachings and my own practice.
And almost ten years ago Core Functional Fitness by Hope Zvara (R) was born. A methodology I took to heart and completely over-hauled my yoga and core-based movement teachings. And in doing so, something amazing happened-my students were seeing amazing strides in their physical bodies and overall life.
For me teaching is educating my students about what the heck they are doing and what they need to imporve on to truly seek wellness and happiness body, mind and soul.
When you practice with me you will notice right away it's not you average yoga class and what from the outside looks simple and way too easy, for those that choose to step into their bodies and really pay attention, learn what corework really is all about and take what they learn off the mat into their everyday lives will gain benefit the first class they walk out of.
Bringing my teachings online came out of need, need for my students accross the globe to practice safely and effectively; to experience what movement in their bodies should feel and be like every single day. Gone are the days of fast and fuerious and present are the times of form and function. Because yes, it does matter how you do things, especially if how you are doing what you are doing is causing you the pain you keep coming back to try to get rid of with little success.
Come think outside the box with me and experience your breath and body in a whole new light!
You can often find me sharing my inspiring story woven into the HOPE Process on stages on and offline all over the globe, as well as behind a camera sharing my take on the vital importance of mindful breathing, healthy movement, and how to live life with a purpose.
