Our story

Zenith Hanoi

PIONEERING a healthy lifestyle since 2007

In 2007, Marzena Kierepka (Zenith founder) moved to Vietnam and began work as a tour guide. As part of the activities she wanted to provide on her tours, yoga was high on her list, however, at the time, there were not many studios that met the standards she wanted to offer her clients.

Having previously studied Yoga in Thailand and India with world-class yoga masters, Marzena began thinking about creating her own studio to solve this problem and fill a gap in the market. 

So with the support and encouragement of her husband, she and two close friends took a leap of faith, setting up a small studio near the Temple of Literature. This is where Zenith was born.  Since then, Marzena’s passion has grown Zenith from a small yoga studio focusing on the Iyengar style to a high-calibre centre incorporating a variety of yoga styles, mat and reformer pilates, teacher training and a range of health and wellness services, supported by a large multicultural community.

In February 2017, Zenith opened a new facility in Lane 371 Kim Ma,  with services designed to appeal to the Vietnamese community. The Kim Ma Branch is Marzena’s special tribute to Vietnam and her way of giving back to its wonderful people.
