Having studied and trained in mindfulness meditation and Buddhist-based psychology, Michal delights in offering meditation instruction. His travels to centres across South Africa and to Europe for courses and retreats have infused his life with the practise of being present. In 2015 he completed several meditation courses at Karmê Chöling in Vermont, USA, and has been authorised to give meditation instruction in the Shambhala tradition which draws on ancient Tibetan forms of practice. He leads weekly meditation groups and spends his time off the cushion cycling in remote places and running local trails.
Michal’s interest in extending mindfulness to physical training grew into a passion for Pilates. He is a Body Arts and Sciences certified Pilates trainer and believes in empowering his clients through self-awareness, while strengthening their bodies and minds.
With a history of Rock Climbing, Tai Chi, Yoga and a great love for the outdoors, she has embraced this new direction in which life has taken her and ties in some of the lessons she has learnt from the various aspects of her life style.
Claudia encourages practitioners to become more aware of their own body, their breath, their thoughts and the present moment in order to begin a self practice.
