About me

My name is Jana..

..I'm a Somatic Bodyworker & Coach, Tantra Massage Therapist and Embodiment Facilitator.

Originally I am from Germany, but since 2021 i am based at the beautiful Algarve in Portugal.

I dedicated my life to research the potential & portal of the human body through movement, touch & conscious relating.

The things that make me thrive & shine in life are being in nature, to dance and to be in connections, where i can be completly authentic & vulnerable.

Let me tell you a bit more about my journey.

MY JOURNEY

I am a human being on a journey.

I love to live in alignment with the rythms & cycles of nature & life.

 

My main interest of my own daily research is the infinite potential of the human body as and the art of human relating.

 

My journey started 15 years ago with Yoga & Meditation, at a time, where I was at my lowest point. Caught up in an eating disorder (Bulimia) , numbing my feelings in all possible ways and completly caught up in conditionings.

 

What was most present for me for a long time of my life was the feeling of SHAME.

Shame for my body.

Shame to be myself.

Shame to feel insecure.

Shame for my sexuality & sensuality.

There was this constant thought of

"I AM A FAILURE AND I WANT THAT NOBODY RECOGNIZES THIS".

So it was not only a struggle to be myself, but also to be in connections with others.

 

Yoga & vipassana meditation were the start of my spiritual journey 14 years ago.

Some years ago I discovered Concious Movement (5 Rythms Dance, Ecstatic Dance, Contact Impro & Movement Medicine), Somatic Bodywork & Tantra, which changed my life completly.

 

I realized: I AM SO MUCH MORE, THAN I WAS THINKING.

 

Additionally to this, the last years I studied and explored the work with the Nervous System & Trauma and after many years of asking "What is wrong with me?", I finally found my answers and:

I FINALLY LEARNT HOW TO REALLY REGULATE MY NERVOUS SYSTEM.

I am deeply fascinated by the healing power of touch as a form of communication, which led me to my Studies of Hands-On Somatic Bodywork (Pantarei Approach) & Tantric Massage & -Bodywork.

For many years of my life I was not connected to my body. 

I lived a life, which was mostly in survival mode.

I didn't feel safe to be myself.

I couldn't allow true intimacy.

Being in connection was exhausting for me, because i always had to wear a mask and protection walls around my heart.

I was disconnected from my sexuality and from pleasure.

 

Luckily all my experiences the last years were and are guiding me back to my body & feminine essence.

And it is a daily journey of RECLAIMING.

 

Reclaiming the full range of my emotions.

Reclamining my wild & soft feminine power.

Reclaiming my body as a sacred temple.

Reclaiming my sexuality & sensuality.

Reclaiming my body as my home.

Reclaiming my authentic expression.

Reclaiming that it's safe to be myself AND to be in connection.

Reclaiming my primal & erotic nature.

 

For me the human body is a portal, which goes far beyond the physical and every day I am deeply fascinated to explore & experience this infinite potential.

I am dedicated to my own daily practice and all my work & teachings are based on my own embodied experiences.
