Safe space
without judgement &
without shame

Recovery Zone is a safe space which helps you

better understand your experience in order to enhance your journey toward a new connection to your ‘in the present’ Self.

My aim is to co-create, with your help, a space where your suppressed emotions can be fully acknowledged, felt and honoured, without judgement and without shame. We will become curious about the Authentic You and this inquiry will allow you to better understand the origin of your behaviours while also bringing compassion to those parts of you who may have created coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. The aim is to liberate you from past conditioning in order for you to be able to stand confidently in your authenticity. 

I offer one-on-one sessions based on Compassionate Inquiry (C.I.), a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté, as well as workshops.

The workshops use C.I., yoga, breathing techniques and meditation specifically designed for coming out of the thinking mind and moving into the body, allowing the body to feel the sensation and release what no longer serves you.

About Me

My name is Steve Borloz. In January 2015, after what seemed to have been 15 very successful years working in the marketing field, I realized that I needed a radical lifestyle change!

I had to surrender and come to terms with a powerful coping mechanism I had created, a process addiction that I had learned to hide from everyone for over 25 years, because of the amount of shame it brought me – damaging my relationships and my ability to live a fulfilling and joyful life.

Through the process of crossing the river of change, I was able to transform my life, and now I want to share what I’ve learned in order to help those who find themselves in a similar situation.

In 2019 I was part of an intensive year-long training program designed to give me the skills of a Compassionate Inquiry Practitioner. Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by     Dr Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.

My knowledge is grounded in the steps I took to find a solid recovery from my treatment at an addiction clinic and the 12-Step Fellowship meetings as well as the therapy groups I attended. I trained as a Kundalini Yoga teacher, a Recovery Assistant went on to complete the Beyond Addiction Course co-facilitated by Dr Gabor Maté.

I’ve fully embraced every minute of my recovery journey, feeling compelled to find the most effective tools for dealing with the behaviours we engage in that end up having devastating effects on our lives.

I’m really excited about my new journey where I offer a safe space as well as share knowledge, experience and tools with others suffering from addiction, burnout, depression or for people who want access to a better life.

I offer yoga workshops which focus on personal experience, are adapted for people wanting to slow down and release what no longer serves them anymore. 

Below is a list of the courses I’ve done and programs I’ve been part of:

1. Intensive training and education as a Compassionate Inquiry Practitioner.

Compassionate inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.

2. Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training 200hrs (Yogi Bhajan).

I’m currently teaching at a Studio in Cape Town, South Africa.

3. Recovery Assistant Course.

This course helps people to better understand the mechanism of various addictions (incl. co-dependency), in order to offer a practical, more hands-on approach when helping someone struggling with addiction. I’ve co-developed and implemented a Mindfulness-based morning routine for Recovery Direct in Cape Town

4. Beyond Addiction Training (The Yogic Path to Recovery).

This is based on Kundalini training and draws from the extensive research Dr Gabor Maté has done on the matter of addiction and self-defeating behaviour.

5. Closed Group Work

Active member of the 12-Step Program
