There's Yoga, Then There's YogaZama

शम Zama (n) ~ balance, equanimity (Sanskrit)

YogaZama's 200-hour RYT program balances eastern tradition with western neuroscience to bring its students next-level yoga. 

Based on our psychotherapeutic yoga curriculum at The LISPY School, YogaZama steeps neurobiology and psychology into traditional yoga teacher training — with instruction in asana, pranayama, Ayurveda, mudras and more.

In addition to learning the necessary yoga foundations to be a successful instructor, YogaZama students will also explore:

  • Biomechanics of Movement and Physiology
  • Mantra Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Psychopathology and Yoga


In just 9 weeks you can walk away with a 200-hour RYT that goes deeper than standard yoga training. With YogaZama, you'll learn how to use yoga to transform both the brain and the body. And, in times like these, you know everyone can use some mind-body love.

Kim Cox

Kim Cox is a long-time LISPY faculty member — in fact she actually helped WRITE the curriculum in 2016! Kim believes in the power and science of yoga with the tools of breathwork, mindfulness, asanas or poses, mantras, bandhas and more. Her philosophy with working with clients is not just about getting fit, losing a few pounds or inches or fitting into a smaller size, but more so working towards helping them find and live a healthy, centered and joyful way of life that is found on the mat. Kim is passionate about working with special populations, injuries and sickness, specifically focusing on stress, anxiety and depression, yoga therapy for the wellness and balancing of the brain and nervous system, and specifically in working with somatic experiencing to gain greater awareness and bandwidth with the sensations in the felt sense in the body. Since she was a teenager, Kim Cox has been drawn to all things physical. Moving her body in different sports and activities was always key to her health and well-being. Kim understood from a young age the benefits of keeping active, connecting the mind and the body and the release that was brought on by physical activity. It was no surprise that she would choose a career that would carry out her passion and share her beliefs with others.
