Hi, I'm Caro.

I took my first yoga class during my studies. I didn't really want to go again - it wasn't physically challenging enough. A few years later I went back to a vinyasa class and fell in love with yoga.

My thirst for knowledge grew and I plunged into several teacher trainings. The effects of yoga and what I learned in the trainings changed my view of the working world and what was really important to me.

After my bachelor's and master's degrees, a trainee program in a large corporation and my focus on working life, I felt unbalanced, not in touch with myself and my mental health suffered. The first yoga teacher training changed my perspective and gave me the courage to quit my job in human resources management, which I had been in for years. I became a self-employed yoga teacher.

Having been coached myself, the positive experience led me to want to explore more about coaching. My first coach training as a life coach with a focus on positive psychology soon followed.

MY AIM:

FROM
HIGHER-FASTER-FURTHER
TO FEELING-LIVING-BEING

Finally listening to what my body had been telling me for a long time brought me more balance and joy. And so I am convinced that we need to become more in touch with our body and emotions - that is, be EMBODIED - in order to find well-being, balance and fulfillment for ourselves.

Various tools can help to reach such an EMBODIED CONNECTION (i.e. a connection to the body; between body, mind and heart) - tools with which I have personally had such positive experiences that I want to pass them on to others, helping you to feel more content and aligned with your life:

YOGA, EMBODIMENT PRACTICES, BREATHWORK & MEDITATION to get from the head into the body, to regulate the nervous system and to let the breath and the body speak and to learn to understand the body's language better. What has interested me from the beginning was the effect of yoga, breath and stillness on the mind, emotions and body as well as on our mental well-being.

COACHING to address issues, blockages or goals in an embodied way and not to ignore the language of the body. To give space to emotions and to one's own self.

I am convinced that contentment and well-being can only arise when we connect with our body, use the breath as a tool and learn to understand and use emotions as the language of the body. This is how we connect with what we really want and what is important to us.

This better connection to ourselves leads to a better connection to others, which in turn makes us happier - a virtuous cycle, so to speak!

Having been raised bilingually by my US-American mother, I'm happy to offer my coachings and classes both in German and English.
