Matagi offers mindfulness workshops for groups and coaching sessions for individuals. The workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions are conducted by Mathew Plappally. Over the past 12 years, Mathew has led Mindfulness workshops, retreats and one-to-one coaching sessions in India, Europe & NZ. Some of my clients: Bupa New Zealand, The Selwyn Foundation, Oceania Healthcare, Arvida Group.
Mindfulness in the Workplace: We bring the benefits of mindfulness at work to employees through workshops, courses and weekly mindfulness sessions. Mindfulness practice cultivates a more creative and stress-free workplace.
There are four programs we offer in the workplace:
1. Introduction to Mindfulness workshop.
2. Mindfulness Course - 5 Weeks
3. One-to-one Coaching
4. Weekly Mindfulness Meditation sessions.
Mindfulness in Your Daily Life: The program focuses on mindful meditation, mindful yoga and spiritual dialogue. Mindfulness meditation involves the process of developing the skill of bringing one's attention to whatever is happening in the present moment. Mindful yoga is a slow and conscious movement, synchronized with the breathing - meditation on movement. Spiritual dialogue is an investigation into the self that you are conscious of and the ultimate reality in which you are conscious of the self.
Realizing Your True Self: Jobs come and go, physical beauty fades, markets rise and fall. Even close relationships can end. But the benefits of realizing your true self last for your lifetime. This workshop offers time-tested principles that lead to freedom and sustainable happiness. Discover how non-religious spiritual wisdom, awareness movements and meditation brings real satisfaction, gain tools for living life more consciously and develop the power of attention to fully realize your potential.
Mindfulness For Healing: This programme will enable you to apply mindfulness meditation to change your relationship to pain, stress and illness, thereby diminishing your suffering and increasing your ability to promote healing and wellness in both body and mind.

Mathew is a cancer survivor. He went through chemotherapy, radiotherapy and a surgery as part of his treatment. Mindfulness and Meditation practice helped him to cope with stress and pain during this challenging period of time. He uses his own experience to help people with serious illness walk through their healing journey.
I love Matthew's teaching and have thoroughly enjoyed his yoga retreats, workshops and classes. It was a transformative and immersive experience with yoga, meditation and philosophical discussion. I highly recommend his workshops and also hope to meet Agi in the future as I haven't had the chance to as yet.
I have been following Mathew and Agi's workshops twice (in India and in London) and it's a true life changing experience... They helped me to see the world in a different way, start my journey to find my inner self and think differently, especially when I was in a place I really needed to. I would recommend it 100%
Mathew and Agi hosted a 2 day workshop in my garden in Lokeren, Belgium. Me and all the participants felt very welcome and cared for while learning about yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Their loving attitude and kind nature made this weekend in to a wonderful time to reconnect with the calmness and wealth in ourselves.
