Ruthann is a fun-loving, creative spirit who creates a joyful and positive environment for everyone who enters her classes or workshops. As the lead 200RYT trainer of the Zen Zone Yoga school, she welcomes teachers and students and guides them to a path of self-love. She integrates alignment, core work, and breathing with creative sequencing. Her classes are dynamic and inspiring! Each class will energize your body and cultivate a meditative consciousness, fostering greater vitality and improved health. Ruthann is a 500 E-RYT with Yoga Alliance. She has over 30+ years of teaching experience! She is a loving mother of 3 amazing daughters, dedicated to being fearless and helping others.


I believe yoga is for everyone. I want to inspire people to become the person they were created to be physically, mentally and spiritually. I’m a E-RYT with well over 15,000 hours on the mat as an instructor. My classes are warm, challenging and soulful . Inspired by all kinds of music, I use gentle alignments to help yogis discover more about their own body. I share thought provoking insights to challenge yogis to live yoga “off the mat” and bring the 8 limbs of yoga to the practice. When I’m not teaching yoga or co-leading Zen Zone Yoga Teacher Training, I’m a certified health and life coach for a Functional medicine practice in Kansas City, MO. I’m married to my college sweetheart, have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and a dog. You’ll find me doing yoga on the water at Lake Jacomo on my SUP or our sailboat; I also enjoy cooking, cycling, hiking, knitting, reading, running and getting creative anyway I can. I hope to see you on the mat soon!

The 200RYT training program is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself! Not only do Tricia and Ruthann prepare you to teach yoga, they prepare you to confidently teach a safe yoga class. The class covers all the expected fundamentals like history, philosophy and postures but most importantly they teach in depth anatomy and how to apply that knowledge in the class and on the mat. They balance out all the serious work with plenty of creative heart work through painting, dancing, singing and connecting . Everything in the 200RYT program has brought great depth to my own practice and prepared me to confidently go out into the world to share yoga wisdom and teach safe yoga classes to others”

Transform Yourself

The single best decision I have ever made after marrying my best friend was enrolling in yoga teacher training with Ruthann Zentner & Tricia Maple Tayrien
This one YES transformed my entire life!
When I enrolled in YTT my intention was not to teach yoga it was to dive deeper into my yoga practice, it was to do something for me, it was to grow personally and expand my tools to navigate life as a busy working mom. What I received was a life changing journey and the tools to be a compassionate yoga instructor, healer, and turn my passion into a thriving business serving my purpose and living a life that sets my soul on FIRE!
If you are searching for more, if you are ready to transform, if you are looking to connect with others on a similar journey, if you want to live in deep alignment with your heart and soul, and maybe even make money doing what sets your soul on fire this program is for you.

 “Ruthann and Tricia are two of the best yoga teachers in the Kansas City metropolitan area. They are knowledgeable, creative, and fun and are dedicated to serving their students and teachers-in-training. I couldn’t imagine taking yoga teacher training through anyone else. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and was truly a transformational experience.
