The BODY promises what can not be honoured by any theory of society, science or philosophy: an original entrance to reality. The BODY promises immediacy.
It needs the necessary conditions and a good constitution. You need the courage not to be swayed to go your own way. Your body is the armour and dynamite with which it can shatter the obstacles of anxiety, doubt, indecision, lethargy and the desire to please. Then it can recognise it´s place in the space, which is distinctively occupied by you, at which point your being is appearing authentically.
'Working with the body reveals precious wisdom and makes us understand important messages. '
I encourage people to follow their desires, talents, passions, intuitions and intentions.
Therefor I am working with the body, it`s resources and it`s energy. The combination of touch, movement and verbal communication activates hidden powers and helps to see that everything has reason and meaning. Every action, every love, every feeling and every thought has it`s cause and sense. Working with the body reveals precious wisdom and makes us understand important messages. It opens the doors to emotions, conflicts, fears, destinies and dreams that are looking to be recognized and want to get space.
I have graduated as a practitioner of the Grinberg Method and I am strongly influenced by the recently developed 'Pantarei Approach'. It may happen that elements from acting, contemporary dance, or shamanism also flow into the session if the situation is asking for that.
The combination of verbal communication and physical touch allows clients to connect with their hearts: with the people and projects they love. I believe that everyone has certain tasks in this world that give his life sense. Following the heart, everyone is on the right, on his own path.
I accompany clients in their desired direction, always knowing that all the answers lie within themselves. I do my best to give them my full attention, and create a space where they can feel safe and unfold their potential. A place where there is no right and wrong. I help them to listen to their own voice, which enables them to master the challenges of life with ease, courage and grace.
'Come as you are, on your search, with your desire, your curiosity and your doubts.'
At the beginning of the first session we are talking. I ask you questions about your life, wishes and plans. Together, we get an overview of your situation and find out in which direction your concerns want to carry you.
Then we go into the physical part of the session, in which you usually lie down (sometimes you may sit, move or stand). Partially the nature of my touch may remind you of massage, with the difference that you may be active and have the freedom to move and talk whenever you want. There may be moments that are dynamic, like a dance, wild, inebriating and liberating. Others are more passive - but not less effective. Then your body is asking for relaxation and silence. This is when healing, clarity and consciousness can arise.
We are a team. While you have the freedom to let yourself fall, I always keep our defined goal in mind. The communication between your body and my hands helps you to get to your strength. In some moments we describe in words what you experience, in others we do not speak. Usually your breathing gets more space, your vitality can unfold and your thoughts can be still or focused. This allows your mind and body to communicate peacefully.
When dealing with (chronic) physical symptoms all of this is incredibly helpful. All your body`s signals can bring up valuable wisdom. My work is designed to understand those and to faciliate your ability to self-healing.
My goal is that you can integrate into your life what you learned in the sessions and that what has been revealed to you will accompany you for a while.
Taking your goal and your life situation into consideration we arrange individually of how many sessions your process consists, and in what rhythm they take place. For some clients one meeting was sufficient to achieve the desired result, some come for two to eight sessions and for others, our team-work on a regular basis turns out to be most fitting.
All people of all ages are welcome, also children. It is important to note that the sessions do not replace medical or psychological treatment.
Come as you are, on your search, with your desire, your curiosity and your doubts. Let`s find together a seed that we can plant and let grow and that can flourish in your life.
'My work reveals to me daily the beauty that is in each of my clients.'
During my acting-studies in Vienna I discovered the potential that lies in the intuitive work with the body.
I started the three-and-a-half-year studies of the Grinberg Method which I completed in December 2016. My teachers from Berlin developed their new approach 'Pantarei' at this time. I am very glad to be part of this movement, which encourages me to follow my path of freedom, trust and independence.
Touch is poetry: it can directly affect people on a powerful, personal and sometimes unexplainable level. To devote myself to my clients with dedication and openness reveals to me daily the beauty that is in everyone of them. It is a great pleasure for me to dive into the life of each individual, and I learn indescribably much from every one who comes to me.
Not infrequently, I find access to the needs of a client through my attachment to theater, dance, music, sound art, fine art, architecture, film art and literature.
I also give workshops. These revolve around a humanistic or philosophical topic. The group develops performative moments in which the body, intuition, play, movement, touch, improvisation, meditation, spirituality and the primordial need for communication meet.
'The actor gains a clear, simple and reliable access to his impulses, his imagination and personal ways of expression.'
For the past three years I've been developing a coaching method for actors that helps them gaining direct access to their talent, presence, and authenticity. I draw from my experiences as an actress, director and trainer for bodyawareness.
Actors are people who on the one hand have an impressive self-confidence which enables them to show themselves and open up their inner world in front of an audience. Nevertheless all actors I know are also plagued by self-doubts and fears. I show them that behind these alleged weaknesses are actually their greatest abilities, which promote the sensitivity and versatility of their play. The goal is that they can meet the requirements and conditions in their profession with more ease, courage and grace.
The work with the body allows an immediate physical experience of the text, the role and the moment.
How can the actor be pure and present, without observing or thinking too much?
And how is it possible to let go of control, go into the hands of a director, and still feel secure?
Since every actor has his own individual way of playing, I go into it very specifically and do my best to figure out what the person needs to trust himself more.
The actor gains a clear, simple and reliable access to his impulses, his imagination and personal ways of expression. They expand into their individual talent and learn to rely on it.
'The meetings with Ada are exciting and full of enjoyment. At points in the work to which I had previously thought or constructed intently, I now have more lightness and permeability, focusing myself to become more targeted, to feel my roles. Instead of wasted thinking à la: "I can not !!", my body shows to me completely surprising impressions from the life of the character. It is an adventurous fun to follow this playfulness and joy that makes me overcome fears and doubts. Through the meetings I will pay attention to the fact that my desire to play is ultimately much bigger and stronger than my fear of failure.' (Cecilia, actress)
'Presence and power on stage occur through allowing softness and permeability. For me it was great to realise that the art lies in the "omission" because most of what I'm looking for is already all there. It is a pleasure to perceive blockages, to admit them, and then to break free from them. Through the meetings I'm focused, my voice gets more resonant and I'm learning to follow the 'interpretation of my body.' (Hauke, actor)
As the sea is constantly moved by wind over gentle waves, to high seas, life changes. Every moment brings new facts, new sensations and new challenges. Mostly we do not want to cope with this vibrancy, wish smooth lake when there is a storm, and are afraid to get wet - let alone to throw us into the waves. We want to capture the moment when it is "positively" displayed and want to change it, if we assess it as "negative". Pain, we try to avoid. Even with so-called "positive" feelings such as joy, gratitude and love we can not deal often, we find it difficult to allow them totally, and truly enjoy. Because intensity scares.
"I am very grateful for the sessions with Ada. I felt very understood and it was easy to open up and tell her about my topics. I learned how to find a way out of my "mind-circus" and to feel my body. I understood that the thoughts create many illusions while the body sometimes feels completely different. And especially in processes of decision-making it is simply the body who already knows the way. Through doing the exercises I felt totally grounded, clear and quiet in my head."
"The Grinberg Work with Ada is the best that could have happened to me and I am infinitely thankful for this discovery! I am diving into something that was before a distant and sometimes confusing idea, I learn to understand myself through the signals my body sends to me since a long time. Instead of letting myself being whipped by thoughts and doubts and things I would have earlier understood as 'external circumstances', I learn to surf and dance to my inner tune whilst I can let go off what would have diminished it in the past. Every session brings a new discovery and the honesty of finding more and more my own journey. Most of the time, the things we misinterprete as "negative" are actually precious keys for what we long for."
"I feel somehow totally knocked out BUT extremely relaxed and light :-) I am very at ease now with myself, curious what will happen today. I am ready to float!"
A session lasts 60 to 90 minutes and costs 70 Euro.
