Workplace Wellness Conference Presenters


Hope Zvara guides participants through the process of living in their bodies again. She believes in helping others purposefully excel by using the three B’s:

Breath – Understanding the conscious and unconscious efforts of the breath,

Body – Seeing the body as the soul’s last attempt to get us to listen; observing how posture is the easiest and quickest way to change how we feel,

Believe – Diving deep into the mind and belief system to see where our barriers are, and change our thought process to believing that – yes, we are enough!

Zvara’s presentations and workshops are a wonderful composition of all her life lessons, training and hands-on experience. She gives hope and empowers individuals and organizations. Her passion for living life with purpose fills a room. Zvara’s mission is to help others purposefully excel through breath, body, belief as a way to see value in who they are and all they do. Her insight into life and guidance is authentic, humble and motivational.

Zvara has been nominated as Yoga Instructor of the Year 2008-09, “Yoga Hall of Fame,” awarded Top Women in Business 2007-08 by Cambridge Who’s Who, and has been featured in: Mind Body Green, Daily News,, and on the cover of Nature’s Pathway Magazine.
