Epic Yoga 4.0

Come and join our Zeenya community for a stunning cliff top yoga class just outside of Raglan on the wild West Coast. Not quite our usual Epic Yoga where we hike first, this location just couldn't be missed and it's right near it's own carpark on the remote road out toward Kawhia.  Optional hikes afterwards include the Lookout at Mt Karioi (2 hours DOC track), or the summit (3 hours DOC track), or heading into the Gorge itself. So if you want to stick around for some extra activity, br...

Good Vibes Only

Some people have the ability to feel and read the energy of others, sensitive beings who can’t help but be influenced strongly by the presence and the emotions those people around them. Do you sometimes feel drained after spending time with a friend or colleague who is very negative?  Or on the other hand do you feel uplifted by a friend who just gives off the most positive of energy? If so, then you probably are one of these people. Recognising this, having a strong awareness of our pers...

On the other side of fear

The following story is based on actual events, contains swear words and self reflection. If you're opposed to any of these things, we suggest you skip this read. As a disclaimer, we do not recommend attempting this track by yourself or without someone who has been before. It is not signposted and can only be completed at total low tide with the use of headlamps. Some people just give really good advice. Like our friend Francie - she said, "do scary sh!t". And once in a while we need to just feel...

Do scary sh*t

Meet Francie, Irish ex-pat living in Northland, lover of trying scary things and personal game changer. We've been connected with Francie on Instagram for quite some time, @franciechanges and what we love about her is her sheer determination towards achieving her goals. We had a chat with her recently and posed a few questions to discover where her strength comes from. We had a grand plan of making this a short snippet blog, but in the end we thought you should hear her story straight from her....

Spirited Women: Team Shits and Giggles

This interview took place over skype while the interviewer sat huddled up in a large jumper and the team were sitting lavishly enjoying wine and about to imbibe some epic pumpkin soup and Brazilian cheese bread. Needless to say this interview should have been done in person... For anyone reading this not yet familiar with the concept behind the Whai Ora Spirited Women Adventure Race, this event defines the spirit of a kiwi woman – her give-it-a-go attitude, sense of adventure, a strong belie...

Fit and fun in Whangamata

The moon is the only light we have as 25 ladies crawl out of bed to join me for an hour of fun in the beautiful beach town of Whangamata. Whangamata turns into small highway as the girls join me in various locations throughout the town three mornings a week at 6am for six weeks. Throughout the FitnessCamp the girls are put through their paces doing fitness tests (nix styles) sunrise boxing sessions on the beach, stairs, hill sprints, partner work, yoga and much more. I have designed my camps to ...

Word to the Women

This International Women's Day falls mid-week. Which means most of us won't stop for more than a few moments to acknowledge it and then we'll power on through the day getting the million and one things done that we do every day. So ladies here are five quick things we can do to commemorate the day in our own way, - Make a cuppa / pour a glass of wine and be grateful for being a woman - Whilst drinking, take a moment and remember one important woman in our lives - If you have time and...

March is for Mindfulness

I think most of us can relate to seeking more peace, calm and happiness in our lives, I know I would love a little more of these things. An inner peace that resonates to all aspects of daily life. A daily meditation practice has been on my "to-do" list for some time now, but for some reason the idea of meditation is still fairly elusive to me. I would like to think I am making small gains in this area of my life and my goal for the month of March is to slowly increase the time spent meditat...

Self Love and Wellbeing

Anna Ainsworth here, from Anna Ainsworth Yoga, Meditation and More. As a self confessed Zeenya super fan and lover of life I'm excited to share a few of my own thoughts with you on embracing life through colour. My birthday was yesterday and for me it's always a time of reflection and taking stock of where I am and where I want to be...this year is a little different, it's a real celebration! Over the last 12 months I have been on my own amazing journey towards self love and wellbeing. Through...

Wanderlust or Bust

If I were a hitchhiker trying to get to Taupo last weekend, that's what I would have put on my sign. Wanderlust or bust. If we only went to one festival a year, it would be that one. It is without a doubt my favourite event of the calendar. Want to know why? Well, one woman came up to me (it was her first time at the festival) and said "this is where all the nice people hang out". Yep. She's not wrong there. It's rare to interact with the general public in such an open-hearted and non-expectat...

Making a plan for 2017

So most people reading this blog will read it before the end of January. Hi! Thanks for reading! I hope you feel good about taking time to read and be in the moment. For those of you who are reading this at a later date, awesome! Don't be fooled by the 1st of January 2017. It's never too late to start making healthy choices in our lifestyles. I almost didn't write this blog as I felt it was too past the start of January for it to be considered under the 'motivational New Years list of acknowle...

Events Update: So much activity

It's going to be another amazing New Zealand summer. And as always there's so much happening around that it's hard to choose what to get into. But if you're into swimming, yoga, surfing and triathlon then we've got a way for us to catch up during December to February. Here's a quick update of where we will be for the Summer months. Plus we're always open online for any activewear needs. December 15th: Classic Builders Team Shorebreak Ocean Swim Series (Night 1) - Pilot Bay, Mount Maunganu...

Real product from real people

There's a lot of talk about ethical clothing in the fashion industry. The product chain in some companies is often ambiguous and as a consumer its easy to ignore where our clothing comes from and the conditions in which people work to make what we wear everyday. Ethics has always been high on our values list at Zeenya and it drove our decision to chose Brazil as the country to import from. But until now we haven't actually witnessed the ethical conditions that we stand by, in person, so we are...

Trail and Tides in Beautiful Tairua

This year just seems to be running away on us. So we decided it was time to support another race!

They want their local community to get out on loc...

Flying with Acro Yoga

I love the idea of creating beautiful shapes with the body, and challenging the body into different poses through yoga practice. What is attractive and different about Acro Yoga is the sense of community and connectivity to others, it relies on others to make these beautiful and challenging shapes happen. Acro Yoga combines the ancient tradition of yoga with acrobatics, just the word acrobatics may make it seem a bit out of reach to the average person but what I have found is it is more abou...

Double Rainbow - What can it mean?

By now you've probably seen or at least heard of the guy who starts frothing with excitement over a double rainbow. But what does it really mean? Well, if you're a runner it means climbing up a mountain on the 11th of June. If you're like me, it means that you've done almost zero training to date and are starting to (mildly) panic. I've already had to mentally downgrade my entry from 25km to 17km just so I'll actually enjoy my time out there. And that's important - it will be my last off-ro...

The Loft and Zeenya are bringing colour!

Here at Zeenya we love partnering up with others to create some fun. Whether it's triathlon, running or yoga there's nothing better than meeting like-minded people.

Getting Spirited

Whose got spirit? Yes we do! We've got spirit how 'bout you? GOOOOO Team Balance! Just short of having our own pompoms, our weekend squad was totally full of spirit as we took part in the Inaugural Spirited Women Adventure Race in Rotorua over the weekend. It was a fantastic weekend and if you don't read any further past this paragraph, just know that yes the weather was average (a mix of thunder, lightening, pouring rain and sunshine), there were 116 teams of 4 women per team and we had an e...
