We believe that making the connection between mind and body on many levels is the key to a healthy and happy life. Touching, conscious movement, breathing techniques make you aware of your intentions, your health status, your coping strategies and your connection with other people and the world around you.
Hi, we are Nicky and Simone and we both live our passion for a happy and healthy lifestyle. Massage, yoga and pilates are definately part of that lifestyle and we like to share our experience with you! We are both yogateachers and massage therapists. Simone is also a pilates teacher.
We started working together in the Netherlands, but Nicky moved to a town near München, Germany, where she continued her practice. Now we work together, but with a few miles between us. But that does'nt matter because we're connected ;-)
A massage is an invitation to listen to your inner self, to learn to understand what your body is trying to tell you. About your body, your mind, your overall well-being. Massage as a means to regain and retain your natural balance.

Improving your wellness and preventing illness can only be done by taking care of mind AND body. Massage is one of the tools to create balance and getting to know yourself, your strength and weaknesses, your coping-strategies and state of mind!
She really really really loves her job!!

Yoga is a spiritual science of self-realisation. It comes from India and goes back over five thousand years. The Indian sage Pantajali, in his Yoga sutras, defines yoga as the control of the activities of the mind. Yoga methods encompass the entire field of our existence, from the physical, emotional and mental to the spiritual. Its methods include ethical disciplines, physical postures, breath control, as well as meditation. Yoga practice in its different styles has many benefits for your physical and mental health. Nicky and Simone teach both Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga and stress relief yoga.
Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk, capable of creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. Simone teaches Pilates.
