Zen Garden Offering Personalized Attention

In Edit Babboni’s opinion, the practice of yoga saves lives, or at the minimum keeps people sane. During the past few years, we can all agree that life has been a lot more challenging. We have faced depression, separation, anxiety, fear, anger and frustration. “I went through these same challenges, and one of the only things that helped me get through it was practicing yoga,” says Babboni, owner of Zen Garden Health Coaching and Yoga, in Yorktown, which offers small-size classes in order to give each student personalized attention.

During the shutdown, Zen Garden also had to close its doors. “Between the lockdown and all of a sudden being thrown in the role of becoming a school teacher (having to teach my two children from home), I was neglecting my own personal practice and felt the overwhelming abyss that we all were going through,” explains Babboni. “But after I recognized the downward spiral of my mental state, I forced myself to pick my practice back up. It wasn’t even two or three sessions, and voila, shutdown or not, I was back to being strong.”

Babboni says she shares this story because she would like people to understand the profound mental effect yoga can have on a person and would like to help anyone going through anything like she did.
