Please note:

I am moving away from using Thinkific as my online course platform. I've created a .zip file with the complete course content, so you can download & save the practices and their instructions. The course platform will close on the 5th of June 22pm CET. Please make sure to download the content until then.

The EarthBody Studies

The Body is our Home, just like the Earth is our Home.

This self-study online course, composed of Embodiment & Nature Connection practices, serves to bring you home.

The EarthBody Studies give you the framework to explore your relationship with your body and nature and let you experience, how you can use these two sources — Body & Earth — and your intuitive interaction with them, to become a grounding & centering practice in your everyday life, just like yoga or meditation.

While it carries the title “online course” none of the exercises are actually done online or in front of your computer, no worries. The course consists of exercises and instructions, in audio & text form, that guide you step by step to cultivate somatic mindfulness and into an intuitive way of interacting with your own body, as well as inviting you to sharpen your perception and understanding of the natural world that surrounds you, wherever you are.

Although the shared practices are simple, some of them can have profound effects. If you suffer from severe trauma or any kind of mental disorder, unsure if you would be able to care for yourself if challenging emotions or memories arose, I advise against doing this course without supervision. If you are in treatment, I recommend discussing with your therapist which of the exercises are suitable for you.

If you feel you need/want more personal support, you can join the guided group version of the program or book complementary 1:1 somatic coaching sessions here:


The course is designed in a way that it can be implemented in 4 — 6 weeks. You have complete freedom in planning the course, moving through it in your own pace and you will receive a supporting framework in form of PDF sheets to organize your sessions and stay enganged.


Please note that I do not offer any refunds. Once the course is purchased you have immediate access to all lessons and downloads. I have no control over of what people may have already downloaded or saved. I hope you understand.

If you have any questions or doubts, if this course is what you are looking for, I am more than happy to have an exchange about it. Don't hesitate to contact me! [email protected]

Being born into a world that is driven by money and mania of industrial growth, undermined by destructive behaviour towards ourselves and this beautiful planet that we are sharing with so many other precious beings—not being able to comprehend these destructive ways of interacting—I started questioning the way we operate as humans from a young age.

Stepping into my first yoga class in 2012 initiated a process of shedding the many layers of an image that I had created of myself. The beginning of an inward journey: a journey of becoming aware and unlearning at the same time. Likewise, an outward journey—from frantic Berlin city life, to one year living in an ashram, into a life in nature.

After spending years of intensively studying the inner worlds, I am currently especially interested in how to bring the inner & outer work together. How do we not only heal ourselves, individually but create life-enhancing & supportive communities for all beings? I am passionate about exploring the interface between the spiritual, the individual, the political & the collective as I believe it is crucial that we, the people, start to take responsibility and create the world that we wish for.
