Shayne is a qualified Karate instructor and holds the rank of 4th Dan Shidoin, awarded by the Shukukai World Karate Union. Shayne has been a Karate Practitioner since 1992 training with Samurai International World Chief Instructor Shihan Paul Mitchell 8th Dan.
In 2006 Shayne started training in the Pilates method for a knee injury sustained during Karate competition. During this time he found the same passion for Pilates as Karate and since then has become a qualified BASI Instructor.
Shayne’s passion and interest grew in the Pilates method after meeting and practising with his mentor Rael Isacowitz. Rael’s inspiration of the Pilates method has encouraged Shayne to further develop the importance of Pilates for men and is continually involved with advanced education, interstate and internationally.
Since 2012, Shayne has enjoyed teaching as a Faculty member for BASI Pilates and travelled throughout Australia and internationally visiting New Zealand, Indonesia and Japan.
Enhancing his Pilates knowledge Shayne also has furthered his studies in neurology and pain management with Dr Eric Cobb creator and co-founder of Z-Health Performance based in Arizona USA. Since 2012 Shayne has completed his teaching courses with Z-health and to this day now incorporates this further study and knowledge to the Pilates system developing cutting edge advanced education workshops.
