Your shoulders are stiff and your back is aching. You have no idea how to find a sitting position that is less tiring.
Sound familiar? But here's the good news: in this Experts in beta session Johanna shows you how you can move freely through your day again. How you can handle stress so it doesn't get stuck in your back. And how you use your new tools to prevent pain in the long run.
Johanna offers a somatic coaching based on the Alexander-Technique. It can support you in easing painful areas and adopt a healthier posture. This can help you to relieve pain permanently, no matter whether it’s in your back, your shoulders or your hips. As a result, you'll be able to move more freely and easily and be more relaxed during your (working) day.
Johanna's coaching is based on her highly precise perception of your movement habits and the tension in your body. This happens manually and/or visually.
Currently it is up to you if you prefer to have your session online or in Johannas studio in Graefekiez (Praxis Hofer, Böckhstr. 41, 10967 Berlin). An online session allows Johanna to coach you directly in your homeoffice environment. A session in her studio allows Johanna to also guide your body by touch.
Either way Johanna gives you verbal instructions and practical demonstrations on how you can sit, stand and move with less effort. You will receive guidance on how to constructively control your thoughts. For if you change your thoughts, you will change your movements. This is how somatic coaching supports you to find your own way to move with ease. Johanna gives you valuable advice on how to integrate the new ideas into your everyday life and into your working routines.

Johanna is a movement lover and she has her own history with back pain. While she was still working as a civil engineer she had several slipped discs due to her sitting posture, as well as stress.
That’s when she discovered the Alexander Technique. It helped her to overcome the pain and be even more flexible and active than before.
She was enthused and decided to go on the 3 year training course to become a teacher for the Alexander Technique and start her on coaching business. Johanna’s aim is to show her clients how to better care for themselves during their everyday routines to loosen tension and prevent injuries. Her coaching will guide you to find your individual way to move with ease and be more relaxed.
