The Yoga Coach behind Mad About Yoga.

I thought to post a condensed summary of the service I offer. I'm hoping that it makes my service a little more clear & purposeful. I teach what I have experienced or need to learn myself and my journey has been a difficult but blessed and colourful. So this is what I've learned and what I offer to those who need it.

My name is Madelain Burgoyne. I am the founder of Mad About Yoga.  I specialises in private yoga coaching sessions and in developing multi-faceted programs for clients who are really interested and invested in their health levels and overall lifestyle wellness. 
I've decided to step up the quality of my life by living a self-approved life and in becoming the best actualised version of me there is.  I love working with others who desire the same for themselves.  Are you mad about your life or are you Mad About Your Life?


My passion is to show you how to relieve stress, anxiety and depression; turning life from a lacking state, into an abundantly thriving state. It gives me great meaning and purpose to reach out and equip others with the tools they need to heal through natural methods and techniques for these purposes. I believe that no-one is really broken… We’ve just forgotten how to connect. The body is a store house of your mental, emotional and other traumatic (known or unknown) experiences. Living in a modern world, there has never been such a high demand to perform non-stop, leading to a huge mass of general unhappiness, dis-content and disease!  As these demands unceasingly build up, our inherent abilities to re-connect self-sooth, heal and wind down have become lost, forgotten or neglected. 
It is important to find methods to bring the mind and body back into more coherence for a greater quality of health, wellness and to reconnect  to your bliss zones. I know a few of these methods (yoga being one) and through my searching, research and testing, I bring the most effective methods to you.

My core belief is that "mundane" and just settling for what is; is not good enough and that every person should raise their standards on their quality of life, so that they too, can be less mad about life and more Mad (crazy-in-love) About Life! I work with those who are ready to shake things up a little. Are you ready?

I'm not for everybody, but I do an extraordinary job for the few people that I want to work with and those who are ready and who want to work with me

I offer private and semi-private yoga coaching sessions in various packages. Be sure to take a look at the rest of this web blog site (website currently under construction) for all details. Learn the art of attention through fun and creative yoga movement, meditation and relaxation. Yoga is adaptable to anyone, become the best version of yourself ever!
Warning: This yoga is very addictive!



Yoga came into my life while I was suffering from post natal depression in late 2008. Since, I have not looked back.  I have used yoga movement to ignite my passion for life, lose weight, gain self-confidence and inspired others to do the same for themselves.  I gained my international first level yoga certification in 2011. I became certified to teach Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga TM with Sadie Nardini.  I teach 3 early morning public classes per week out of a Karate dojo in Claremont for the heck of it.  I focus on coaching private and semi-private sessions all over Cape Town. I teach yoga at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa on the Old Mutual Estate in Pinelands.  Read my full Bio under the "About" page.
