YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT UNTIL IT'S GONE....
Our body is smart and shows us signs, when it is time to stop and possibly take a step back. The problem is when you run too fast and don't have contact with body and mind, and therefore ignore these signs. I felt the consequences of that myself back in 2017, while working in the fashion industry. It led me to stress, depression, hormonal imbalances and complete burnout. During the same period, my husband's second cancer was diagnosed, so I also had to look after him.
He was in a lot of pain, day and night. I kept searching for new ways to naturally relieve his pain, as doctors only gave him medications that didn't work but added more toxins and side effects to his body.
This sparked my unstoppable science-based quest for health optimization, and together with my husband, we still have a common goal in life: to get the most out of everyday life without pain. Based on my holistic approach to training, a positive mindset, well-being, sleep, meditation and diet - it has been possible to make room for topics such as hope, joy, surplus and desire for a meaningful life.
WHAT AREA DO YOY SPECIALIZE IN AND HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
I believe that a meaningful life is strongly influenced by our mental and physical well-being. In recent years, the need to inspire and help others to understand the importance of health in their daily lives, has grown significantly. Whether it is psychological pain, stress or cosmetic issues such as weight loss and emotional eating, it is especially the long-term changes that I find interesting and how these can be implemented in people's lives.
My approach is rooted in my personal experiences, together with my wide range of education within health. As part of my treatments, I often work with biomechanics and nutrition, and I specialize in plant-based diet with a particular focus on hormones, as I myself suffer from a low metabolism. I also specialize in pain management - and how to reduce pain in a natural way.
There are always new ways and new studies on health optimization, so I strive to keep learning and always stay up to date. Pilates / Reformer was the first form of training, where I got to connect all the things that I love together: breathing, working from your inner core and then ballet.
CURRENT ACTIVITES AND PAST ACHIEVEMENTS WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
I always work from my heart and this has taken me through many different journeys. One of them is as a volunteer at the Center for Cancer and Health, where I am also trained as a relative counselor with a special focus on cognitive tools, such as meditation and habits. In 2018, I was asked if I wanted to participate in Vild med dans Knæk Cancer. It was in many ways a meaningful journey that developed me both mentally and physically. It is very rewarding to be able to help others.
Today, I have my own small selfcare studio that embraces and meets you where you are. You can come as you are. It is completely private and you are the only one in focus. The training itself is Reformer pilates, which works based on the principles of ballet, where you work from the inside out. The mental aspect is to that extent in focus, as both the balance nerve and the stretching are a large part of the training. I always end my classes with meditation and a matcha. Vitaviva is also on the table when you come in for your session, with vitamins adapted to you and your body.
WHAT IS YOUR OPINIOM OF VITAVIVA AND WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND VITAVIVA?
Vitaviva is a fantastic tool, that I actively use in my everyday life, I often meet people who have challenges in one way or another. I feel very privileged and grateful to be able to recommend supplements, that actually work. I see Vitaviva as a magical herbal brand that has solutions for everyone, whether it's hormonal, vitamin deficiency, energy boost, etc.
They have solutions for everything, and behind the brand are some passionate people, so it is very enriching to be allowed to join their journey.
