Learn To Meditate 

About Ziva

Ziva is a school for high performance. We are all about giving high performers tools to perform at the top of their personal and professional game.

Over 2,000 students have learned to meditate with us in person and over 5,000 people have learned around the world from our online courses. All of them have graduated with a powerful meditation practice to take with them for life. The Ziva technique is a trifecta of meditation, mindfulness and manifesting (aka making your dreams your reality.) We are also partnering with some of the world’s leading neuroscientists and body tracking technology to make ancient tools easy to adopt into your face paced life.

Graduates include Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winners as well as CEOs, NBA players, and full time moms. Ziva is based in New York City, where we offer our in person training once a month. We teach in LA several times per year. We also offer corporate and private courses. We have had the pleasure of sharing meditation with Google, Viacom, Barclays Bank and sweetgreen. If you are looking for a practice with the potential to revolutionize how you work and how you chill you are in the right place.

Meet the Founder

Hi friends! If you want to see my professional bio, scroll down on this page. If you want to learn a little more about me as a human being, read on below.

I am a recovering control freak. Musical Theatre was my religion for the first part of my life; by that, I mean that keeping my body and mind in peak performance shape is the thing that gave me my drive and boundaries until I found meditation. I enjoyed 10 glorious years on Broadway and still consider it home. I go to Burning Man and India as often as possible. (If you are still reading this after the last sentence then we might be very good friends.)

I got married to an incredible human in 2015 without whom Ziva would not exist. He meditates (not as much as I would like) and we are the proud (read: obsessed) parents of Mugsy, our 19 lb mutt. I like to hang out with people who are lit up about what they do, bonus points if it is contributing to making this planet habitable for humans for a few more years.

I work too much for a meditation teacher, but when you love what you do it is hard to tell the difference between work and play. I can not imagine my life without this meditation practice and count my blessings every day that I get to share it with the world. Would love to meet you in person at the next Intro Talk in NYC or LA.
