Always pushing through?

I have been there too.

Having been born with skis on my feet and being an athlete my entire life, I got to experience the hard way that the go-go-go & no-pain-no-gain mentality isn’t what let me thrive.

I got injured several times as I pushed myself too hard.

Back then, I thought:

‘I just need to optimize myself’,
‘I need to get stronger’,
‘It will only take a little more effort’.

But all that wasn’t true!

I just didn’t communicate effectively with my body.

Truly Understand Your Body & Gain Resilience.
Then you can achieve everything.

MOVEMENT CHANGES LIVES

As a Sports Scientist specializing in Medical Exercise Therapy, MSc I’ve been training people for over 13 years, and I’ve witnessed the transformative power of movement in various aspects of life, not only physically but also mentally and emotionally.

During my 3 years at a private rehab clinic, I helped patients in recovering from neurological and orthopedic traumas and diseases, guiding them toward regaining their strength, stamina and overall health.

I am convinced movement changes live.
And I want you to experience it too.

I’m here to guide you on your journey to personal wellbeing & success.

The human body is wired for movement!

I have always sought out ways to master the human body & mind, to facilitate personal growth, and help clients reach their full potential.

The discovery of Applied Neuroscience and Neurocentric Training was a turning point for me, it filled all the gaps and answered all the questions I had. I understood that I wasn’t stuck at my perceived ‘weakness’, I just needed a neurocentric approach to reach the next level.

Which means, seeing the brain & the nervous system as the governor changed the way I work, think & engage completely in a holistic way.

“Applied Neuroscience is the science of hope.” (Kathy Mauk)

…and I can confirm this. I’ve seen it in my clients and in myself many times.

Since I entered the world of Applied Neuroscience I’ve experienced a significant boost in performancepersonal well-being & overall health.

Neurocentric Training is the holistic approach I’ve always been searching for, and it has allowed me to connect all the dots, achieving faster and better results for my clients.

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
– Jon Kabat-Zinn

I am a seeker

With my curiosity for various types of movement practices, I explored the world of yoga and the eastern practices and which led me to become a yoga teacher in 2019.

Yoga is a beautiful way to create awareness, reconnect with the body and calm the mind.

I teach a progressive type of yoga based on the current state of science with healthy alignment, breath work & of course: FUN.

My Yoga integrates all my knowledge of working with the body I’ve gathered over 13 years of training individuals from all walks of life.

I’m your best motivator & also your brake pedal at the right time.

Life happens and you’d better be prepared

Movement and in particular meditation, helped me overcome the most significant loss in my life – losing my father.

I used to think:
Ah I don’t need those calming practices.’
I am stronger than that’.

Now, I am glad that I gave it a try, even during my darkest times.

It helped me come back home to myself & rebuild trust in life.

When I am not coaching, you can find me for sure somewhere in nature… Hiking with my dog, surfing those waves or playing Ultimate Frisbee in the sand.

"Those short exercises helped me break free from the daily grind & practice more mindfulness. The changing focus of the exercises provides variety, and the flows really got me sweating – I liked it. She helped me establish a new routine. The breathing techniques not only relaxed me, but also helped me put my little daughter to bed in the evenings. Thank you, Michi, for the fantastic course and your motivating approach."
