About Myself

I was born and raised in Austria and started to ask questions at a very young age based on my experiences that no one around me was really able to answer.

So I started to look for answers in physics, biology and different philosophies and started practicing martial arts and meditation, soon to be followed by Qigong and Kinesiology. This was almost 28 years ago.

Over time I developed a massive interest for a great number of different modalities, reaching from self improvement to therapy, from martial arts to dance and eventually natural movement and from consciousnesswork and meditation to energy work.

After highschool I studied medicine for a couple of years but eventually decided to stop, since different experiences led me to the conclusion that I wanted to teach and show people how to improve themselves and become independent rather than being stuck in a broken system that seems to mainly treat symptoms and suffering, doing very little to actualy prevent problems in the first place.

After practicing meditation, Taiji Quan, Qigong and Bagua very intensely for many years and still always learning new methods and ideas I realized that the most important things that one can learn from all of those approaches lie in their foundation and the basic principles they use or are build upon.

Peeling off the skin of tradition, and mental constructs that were often added for a number of social, philosophical and historical reasons and often twist the basics into a complex shape that lost much of its potential simplicity and effect I always went looking for the core.

Eventually I decided to go "system free" and look for those fundamental principles wherever I was able to find them in science, experience, movement, therapy, consciousness and whatever other name a field of study is called.

Between 2000 and 2015 I taught Taiji Quan, Qigong, Bagua, martial arts, meditation, energy work, natural movement and sports in my own courses and workshops and worked with companies in health programs and burnout prevention workshops.

From 2011 to 2015 I've been running two 2,5 years long teacher training programs for consciousness-training, energywork and natural movement.


MY mission


I believe in the ability of humans to be free and thrive, to be connected and healthy to nature and themselves and to live life to the fullest.


I show them how to achieve that by facilitating experience and highlithing new perspectives in a simple way that lead to abilities that can be applied every day.


I teach things that everyone should know but was never told about movement, life and consciousness in workshops, retreats and online courses.
