Move your Mind and Live your Dreams
Self-development is the process of learning new things and building new skills. Skills that help us increase our chances of success, achieve our goals and manifest our dreams.
And time-out during a vacation or retreat can be
a perfect opportunity to go for it.
A Private Yoga Class
In a 1-on-1 Session we can target something that is perfect for your own yoga routine. What can it be for you?
Support with a special asana?
Filming a sun salutation sequence that you can repeat at home?
Learning some poses that relieve your frozen shoulder syndrome?
A Holistic Coaching Session
Already Albert Einstein knew, that “we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
If you are feeling stuck, or if there is always the same situation or person that triggers you, a personal coaching session can be eye-opening.
Take valuable insights with you from this session with Elke, who is a Certified Holistic Coach, and continue back home. The path is the goal.
An EFT Tapping Session
The Emotional Freedom Technique is a wonderful self-help tool that instantly releases stress, helps with all kinds of phobias, and supports transforming negative emotions into positive feelings.
After 25 years of personal experience with EFT, Elke was trained in the UK in 2019 by one of the 20 Master EFT Teachers, Karl Dawson, who was taught by the founder of EFT in the USA, Gary Craig.
