"the giving comes not just from the hands but through the heart"

This phrase explains the magic behind the success of PT. Zen Jiwa (Spirit) Raga (Physical) The dynamic partnership of Iyan and claude combines many years of wisdom and experience in tourism, travel, healing and well-being.

Claude's journey of mastery in holistic management and design has its beginning when he lived with Buddhist monks in Thailand and traveled throughout India as a spiritual pilgrim in 1992. Upon returning to his home in Canada in 1993, Claude co-created and led exciting adventure travel experiences throughout Asia, Thailand, Indonesia and Central Asia incorporating meditation, ritual and holistic practice.

In 2000 a Javanese Business man invited Claude to create his first spa. This was a chance to give form to Claude's dreams and experience. With a carefully hand picked staff of 5. Claude created a spa that became Ubud's "most wanted spa" in the first 6 months of operation. The magic of Zen Body Holiday was rooted in daily meditation, visualization and an emphasis on the power of synergy.
A golden opportunity came along in 2002 when Claude began Zen Lifestyle Energy Resort on Sept 1 2002. A true master of detail, Claude designed every aspect of the resort. The well-being experience was unparalleled and many international guests have become ambassadors for Claude and Iyan's unique resort retreat programs. It was here that Iyan and Claude's five signature treatments and “Escape the World” Yoga and Spa Retreats were perfected.

Claude continues to grow and develop his concepts of wellness and to create spas and spa experiences that awaken the spirit, open the heart, calm the mind and rejuvenate the body. Working closely with Iyan and a range of other associates, Claude maintains a busy schedule of planning, consulting, design and delivery.
