Zenith on Au Co, out near West Lake, offers vinyasa, Iyengar, basic hatha, Pilates and restorative classes. Downstairs you’ll find ZCafe, serving delectable-sounding vegetarian cuisine.

We did an Iyengar class with Marzena, the owner of the studio, who is a knowledgeable and highly experienced instructor—we were sorry we didn’t have time to do more with her.

There’s even a skeleton in the corner, which suggests this is a place that takes its anatomy—and therefore your body—very seriously. Recommended!

Zenith also has a branch on Kim Ma that opened in January 2017 that we haven’t yet been to, but if it’s anywhere near as well run as the original, you will be in a safe pair of hands ... please log in to read the rest of this story.
