We live in unique digital times, where a world of endless information and possibilities is available at the touch of our fingertips. Which is great – but it made me realise some years ago, that I didn’t truly understand my mind and my body.
I came to a stage in my life where I was emotionally drained, underweight and ready to abandon the unhealthy lifestyle I had developed over the years. That’s when my quest to find myself began and my breath became my foundation, my balance and my compass for building momentum and confidence.
I optimised my lifestyle and conquered the cold. With the help of a range of easy to learn techniques, I was able to become a better version of my old self.
​This resulted in being able to climb the highest mountain of the Outer Hebrides (Scotland) and two impressive mountains in Poland, bare-chested wearing only shorts, in weather conditions of -10 to -15 degrees Celsius.
Trust me: I’m not special. Anyone can do this if you are willing to dig deep into your physiology using simple techniques.
Today, I feel like I can trust my body and mind again and I have become an experienced facilitator of holding space for people in workshops, retreats and events
I have trained in some of the world's most majestic know programs and I know if you understand the breath, you understand the mind. The potential is in every single one of us to reconnect with nature and it starts with the breath.
If you have any questions at all, please get in touch and I'll be more than happy to help you.
