I graduated as a Guild Certified Feldenkrais PractitionerCM from a Professional Feldenkrais Training (1994-1998). Since 2017, I am a Certified Feldenkrais Assistant Trainer. I am also certified as an advanced ARUN Conscious Touch practitioner, as well as a Focusing Trainer.
Until 2015 I offered workshops and sessions in the US, Chicago. After that I traveled to various continents for six years, offering these and other modalities for self-inquiry and personal growth until 2020/21 when the pandemic hit the planet. I am now located in Leipzig, Germany, while my work mostly takes place online.
Before getting into those practices, I worked as a carpenter. Then, between 2000 and 2015, I also established a sales company: BestMassage, a meditation center: Inner Metamorphosis University, and an organic vegetarian restaurant in Chicago (Lake Side Café).
The combination of running businesses with involving myself in inner practices, and offering workshops and sessions to the public, gave me a treasure of life experience: knowing of people’s everyday challenges, and knowing of how supportive and transformative awareness practices can be. Since 2015, I only work with people as described on this website.
In short, I am fascinated by self-exploration, through which I discover my spontaneous and creative being, and I guide others to catch fire for a path towards living themselves authentically and joyfully.
I offer workshops, training, and sessions Feldenkrais, Conscious-Touch, Focusing in various countries including Germany, the US, Brazil, Taiwan, Italy, China, and Spain. Due to Covid-19, I am currently in Germany, Leipzig. I am always available online for classes and for online Focusing and Feldenkrais sessions.
My greatest joys in life include the enjoyment of organic movement, being in nature, and various practices of consciousness. I am blessed to have come in contact with intense practices such as the above-mentioned, and with silent and active meditations.
I tremendously enjoy (partner)-dance, singing, painting…, and, in my ‘past life’ played musical instruments, did martial arts, Judo, self-defense, Ki-Aikido, and other sports.
Besides the passion of creating and being active, I always create spaces for aloneness, and of meditation and silence, which I tremendously enjoy.
Here are some video clips about practices that I have appreciated for health and well-being: Awareness, Aliveness & Vitality.
