Zach Woods

Zach’s mission is to motivate, inspire, and share his passion and love for yoga one class at a time. Growing up in Huntington Beach, Zach later moved to San Francisco where he immersed himself in the culture while attending UC Berkeley. After graduating with a degree in English Literature, Zach moved to Japan where he taught English and traveled extensively through Asia. It was years later in the midst of his career as a corporate executive that Zach was introduced to Hot Yoga at HB Hot Yoga (now Yoga Tribe). The experience was something that would change his path entirely. At first, Hot Yoga was a way to calm the mind and deal with the pressures associated with life in the corporate world. It didn’t take long to realize there was a greater plan in store. Zach entered Yoga Tribe’s Hot Yoga Teacher Training program in Spring of 2018 and is a now a 200 hour certified RYT through Yoga Alliance. Zach finds joy and comfort in the community aspect of Yoga Tribe. He loves to smile and laugh along with other members of the Tribe. For Zach, Yoga is a family affair. His wife Vivian and her twin sister Lilian are long-time Yoga Tribe practitioners. His niece Abbey is a fellow Yoga Tribe teacher! Zach believes a consistent practice is paramount to connecting with students. “First and foremost, I am, and will forever be a student and firm believer in our Hot Yoga sequence. It changed my life, and it can change yours.” When he’s not teaching or taking a class, Zach can be found in the water surfing.
