Independence & Vitality for the Rest of Your Life
The human body is designed to move. And it should move naturally and smoothly. Therefore, don't put up with pain, discomfort or awkward movement any longer but learn how to become a motion master yourself, to move your body freely the way it wants to move. That has both an impact on your appearance and also how you come across.
Hello and welcome!
My name is Ulf Tölle MPH and I’m passionate about helping good people with an open mind, who are curious and eager to take responsibility for themselves and want to move through life in freedom and ease of motion. I'll help you change some everyday life habits and establish healthy ones instead. If that sounds like you and calls your name, then
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

My Tension Is About 10 % Of What It Used To Be…
I couldn’t really tell if there was any difference at all during the session. Two weeks later I realised that I hadn’t had any tension in the back of my neck at all! It was amazing! Even though at the time I didn’t notice the difference, the proof was in the results!
The tension I used to feel in the back of my neck & shoulders was quite painful, and only by having massages by professionals was it ever resolved. Now, although I do get it occassionally, its about 10% of what it used to be, and that’s a year afterwards!
A Deep Impression
ドイツで出会った、ホルンそしてアレクサンダー・テクニークの師匠 Ulf Tölle 先生とのレッスンを振り返ります。
“The Poise of the Head is the key to freedom and change”
Met in Germany, the French Horn and Alexander Technique Master Teacher Ulf Tölle – a flashback to a lesson with him:
“The Poise of the Head is the key to freedom and change”
The teacher I became friends with a […] man, […] memories, left me with a deep impression.
Reeducation, Its Missing Link
Motion Mastery™ made all the difference to me. There are many techniques out there that claim to reeducate patterns of movement without integrating the mental processes and cognition in this reeducation. The principles of the Alexander-Technique are founded in modern neurophysiology and support a systemic understanding of the organism, that does not separate mind and body.
Getting Into The Zone
To use a basketball analogy, when I am playing, there is a certain level of performance where everything is just seamless. We call it the zone in basketball. And when you are in that particular state, the zone, everything is just effortless, all the skills that you train and train and train of all the years some sudden instance come together and it is totally effortless. Everything flows.
And participating in Motion Mastery™ with Ulf is how to all describe that. He has taught me how to really get out of my own way. There are certain blocks and certain things that we all put in our way in the sense of our general movements and these things can resolve in back issues with things like our stance, the way we walk. I just want to say thank you very, very much Ulf for having me participate fully.
And if you’re having any of these issues and want to improve on your movement abilities, work with Ulf. He is a real Motion Master.
Good Sense, Delivered With Humor
Working with Ulf has been of tremendous benefit to me in ways that still continue to surprise. His approach is precise and demonstrable, based on good sense and delivered with humor. No matter what problem brings me to his door he has a new perspective that leaves me wondering how I ever managed without it.
Self-Confidence In Everyday Life
«Ulf, I tried to take care of my needs. I believe your work is of profound impact on how I recognize myself by means of moving in a harmonious way. Your work is a way which allows to discover self-confidence in everyday life. Some of the teachings needed time to be outspoken, but I attribute this to the philosophy that comprises and develops a whole set of concepts of movement. Motion Mastery is like ‘freedom‘. The one who knows what it is, does know, but how to translate it into words?»
Truly A Motion Master
Ulf moved my head slightly off my normal position and I was feeling how the blood started flowing into my hands. I was so astonished that I did not want to move. It was such a pleasurable and relaxing feeling. My neck stopped hurting and I felt a huge relief in my whole body. … I wouldn’t believe it, but after experiencing the change myself, the flow of energy and the entire relaxation in the whole body, I must say that Ulf has an incredibly deep understanding of the human body – he truly is a Motion Master.
I finished the Swiss Championship in 1st place…
… beyond believe! I have come into contact with myself in a natural and simple way. No big story, just straightforward. And my results: A better perception of my body, that I can let it rest on surfaces and that I can execute a movement effectively with only half the effort. I don't have enough words to say thank you!»
At only 19 years of age I have had excruciating neck and jaw tightness and pain for as long as I can remember (problem since I was 12 years old) before coming to Ulf Tölle. I had sought out many different practices that I thought would help minimise the pain but nothing had worked. I was feeling extremely disheartened and started to believe that nothing could make it better.
Ulf worked with me in an extremely professional way, made me feel instantly comfortable and relaxed. Ulf definitely knows his stuff and was genuinely committed to supporting me in feeling better. He gave me a deep understanding of what specifically I need to do to better support my body in healing and gave me tools and techniques that have worked brilliantly. I have now been pain free for 3 weeks.
No words can even begin to explain how grateful I am to Ulf Tölle and his Motion Mastery approach for supporting me to get rid of this pain for good. I can’t remember the last time I felt this amazing. I would encourage anyone and everyone to go to Ulf as he is brilliant. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Rare Sensitivity & Clarity of Presentation
«In my very long association with Mr. Alexander's work and my extensive experience with several different teachers from different schools of his unique technique I have found very few who demonstrate the sensitivity and clarity of presentation that Mr. Tölle has shown to me.
He is exacting in his work with me as well as with others, whom I have observed him work on.…»
Working With Me
One : One
Problems and difficulties are issues, that always have a strong personal component:
Overcoming them is a personal victory, nobody can do that for you.
As a society we all are inclined to believe that there has to be instant relief. Sometimes yes, relief can happen in a flash, but sometimes it just cannot.
Working with me 1:1 makes sure that you receive the best support and your issue is addressed NOW, to the best of my abilities.
or in a Group
It's a challenge: Sometimes we are just too close to our own difficulties, and personal coaching might not be the best choice.
Learning from others as they are going through their process is just what we need. If that sounds like you, then this might be the right track for you.
Currently I offer group coaching for sports people getting back to training after injury.
That program has broader application though… (i.e. you don't need an injury to benefit from understanding coordination better!)
