Work Experience

Since 2004 I am working as a complementary therapist in the office of Dr. H. Holdener MD mainly with the Alexander-Technique. I am helping his patients to cope better with chronic and recurring back pain or after an accident with whiplash trauma.


CPD for Physiotherapists

in Porto Alegre, Brazil

After my early courses at the University UFRGS in Porto Alegre a physiotherapist asked me to create a course directed at physiotherapists. This course actually hit a spot and for the next 10 years
I was busy creating different versions and levels of that course to serve that community.

Associate Professor

University of Music, Stuttgart

In my decade in Stuttgart of individual and group work with instrumentalists, conductors, singers and actors, I had the privilege to help students realize how they employ their body, what sound they achieve and how the two interconnect. And the way they use their body impacts also their personal health and their ability for peak performance.
