Verhalen over de toekomst van het zitten en een gezonde leefstijl.

Exciting Campaign Update

First: Thanks to all our supporters we have reached our $100,000 stretch goal on Indiegogo!

What does that mean? That means we will be able to bring the Zami mobile app, which connects to the Zami Smart Stool, to the Apple Watch.

Picture this…You are sitting on your Smart Stool at work/home wearing your Apple Watch. Feedback from the sensors on your Zami will enable CNN Health Yoga Expert, Dana Santas, to cue effective yoga-based movements and exercises you can do to further facilitate proper sitting – and each tailored specifically for you.

Second: After such a successful campaign we have decided to extend the Zami Life campaign for another 30 days!

This gives you the opportunity to share the word about Zami with your friends. This brings us to our third announcement…

Third: We have set up an Indiegogo Referral Campaign!

Here’s how it works: You earn $50 in Zami credit towards our campaign every time one of your referrals purchases a Zami. The amount of credit you can earn is unlimited!

Example: If 5 of your friends purchase a Zami, then you will be credited $250! YES, that’s right… you can get yourself a free Zami Essential by sharing our campaign!! Learn more here.



Meet Our Chief Mobility Advisor – Dana Santas

Zami Life is proud to announce our new Chief Mobility Advisor, Dana Santas. As an international health and wellness expert and the creator of Radius Yoga, Dana has dedicated her career to helping people move, breathe and feel better. She’s the yoga expert for CNN Health as well as the sports performance mobility trainer for numerous teams and athletes in MLB, NHL, NBA, NFL, PGA and WTA. Dana and Zami Life’s goals are strategically aligned with the joint mission of improving health and well-being.


Although most people think of yoga as stretching, Dana’s teaching approach is more yoga-inspired mobility biomechanics supported by proper respiration. When working with professional teams and athletes, she begins with postural and breathing assessments (based on science—not yoga). Her mantra is that breathing is posture, and posture is breathing, because the diaphragm is the king of your core. These principles are why Dana loves the Zami stool.

In the few months that I’ve been using my Zami stool in place of my desk chair, I’ve experienced how effective it is in facilitating the natural curves of my spine and promoting awareness of my sitting habits, while actually increasing my level of activity when seated: I notice immediately when I slouch because my center of gravity/balance on the chair changes, so it prompts me to sit symmetrically, reengage my core (specifically my diaphragm), reposition my legs and stand up more regularly. And that’s all happening even without the sensors and app!

After spending five years studying the effects of respiration on posture and vice versa, she was very excited to notice how the Zami’s convex stool design promotes and almost necessitates symmetrical pelvic alignment for stable sitting.
