My passion lies within the understanding of our path in life through peace, serenity, calmness, awareness, and confidence and the connection with ourselves– always paired with humor and fun. I dedicated my life to understand my own body as well as those of my clients while embracing their full potential, not only physical but also mental.
I truly believe that fundamental physical change and development is not possible without mental training, this is why I have a growing interest in supporting the body with the right mindset. It fulfils me to share my knowledge and my love through my teaching and to emphasize the connection between body and mind in a holistic approach.
