Zac has also served as a coach at the Australian Ballet School for over five years and in 2018, completed his Masters of Fine Arts in Choreography at the Victorian College of the Arts.

 

Zac has always shown a keen interest in diversifying his training and techniques and has subsequently pursued his passion for movement in an array of other disciplines alongside dance.

 

As a martial artist, Zac has taught and holds a 2nd degree black belt in Yoshinkan Aikido, is a Lakan 1st degree black belt and licensed teacher in Filipino Arnis and has undertaken extensive and ongoing private tuition with Kung Fu and Russian Systema masters.

 

As a body-mindfulness and somatic teacher and practitioner Zac has studied Continuum, Ideokinetics, Skinner Releasing, Body-Mind Centering, Contact Improvisation and many other practices to expand the potential of the body and mind together.

 

For many years Zac has run a Pilates and Movement Rehab Studio in Melbourne CBD that specialises in merging the many different styles of training he has learnt and taught into one integrated system that helps heal and improve the ease and quality of movement for anybody at any age.

 

A former Pas de Deux Strength and Conditioning coach and Contemporary Ballet teacher at the Victorian College of the Arts, he began to apply these methods to elite dance students, consistently achieving outstanding improvements. As a result of these successes, Heal Yourself + Move was conceived.

 

Drawing on his varied experiences, Zac’s teaching style focuses on relaxation and trains the body to be the teacher. This has gone on to help countless individuals overcome injury, increase range of motion and develop strength without strain.
