THE WHOLE STORY

 

All about my background and journey to where I am today

Everything began in Germany. I was born an d raced in Germany in a ver sporty and active family. From a young age I was exposed to many forms of movement. This curiosity and activity level continues on during my high school years.

 

After finishing high school and spending a year abroad in Australia, six months in New Zealand and two months in Equador, I studied Business Management and Event Management in Berlin, Germany and started working in the same field for some time. Soon I realized that event management wasn't my authentic path. Even though I had deliberately chosen this career, I had to admit that it left me feeling exhausted, unbalance, uninspired and with little motivation and drive. After some soul searching and careful reflection I figured out that my daily life didn't include any of the things I enjoy doing and that I was really passionate about.

 

I used this realization to make a drastic change in my life: I left my job, comfort zone and home country to explore a daily life that would include all the things that filled me with excitement, joy and passion and would allow me to live a more balanced life every day! This was my first step towards a more healthy and deliberate lifestyle.

I spend the next years living in foreign countries (mainly Asia, Europe and the US) working as Retreat Manager in leading health and yoga retreat centers, teaching yoga on beautiful beaches and leading sunrise meditation sessions on the pool side, exploring new diets and health hacks, while studying fitness and health related topics. In these years I was fortunate enough to meet a number of mentors, coaches and trainers to connect with, exchange knowledge and practice and grow. 

Today I am using everything I have learned over the years to support my clients and community to create a healthly and balanced lifestyle around movement, mindfulness and awareness on a daily basis.

My mission is to empower my clients to feel there best. Starting by building a healthy lifestyle, sustainable change and long lasting shifts in their daily routine. Every coaching experience is individuals as we all are individual in our lifestyle, needs, schedule and goals. Whether you want to learn how to calm your mind, reach your fitness goals or feel more healthy in your own skin.

And just another exciting part of my practice: 

In February of  2019 my husband and I welcomed our son. This happy life shift inspired me to learn more about PreNatal Fitness and Yoga. Today I am a PreNatal Yoga teacher and Fitness Instructor and love helping mamas to get, be and stay healthy, to exercise and move safely and confidently during pregnancy and/or after birth and to actively create a calming mindset to support the drastic life change that comes with motherhood. 

 

Overall I am excited to meet like minded people, who enjoy movement, the outdoors and community. Building a network and growing a community around those simple yet powerful values is my passion. Reach out if you are looking to start a healthier lifestyle - I am here to help.
