The journey is the destination

At a time when many things are changing and more and more people are looking for guidance, it is crucial to take responsibility for your own physical and mental health. Together, we can break new ground and build a future of healthy coexistence.

Let's work together to strengthen and nurture health - mental, energetic and physical.

Who are we?

Bernhard is my name. Mindful hiking my calling. Life my greatest teacher. After studying electrical engineering, my path led me to train in the field of mental training. I wanted to help students, as my studies cost me a lot of nerves. Through my passion for climbing, I developed workshops to combat fear of flying while climbing. I was then allowed to reinvent myself and heard the call of nature: to lead people back into nature. Mindful hiking was born and so my journey came full circle. My love of nature and my training as a mental coach and in positive psychology set my course. I have been able to pursue this vocation for three years now and look forward to every single person I can accompany and inspire and who can subsequently live a more positive future without me.”

Michaela is my name. I am a qualified herbalist, alkaline fasting vitality trainer (in training), Peter Hess® sound massage practitioner and shamanic practitioner. I am passionate about passing on my knowledge and supporting the growth of others. It deeply fulfills me to accompany people on their path to a healthier and more fulfilling life. A stroke of fate in my health, characterized by unhealthy habits and an overly stressful everyday life, forced me to pause and take a break. This experience fundamentally changed my perspective on life. Essential values that guide me: authenticity, openness; gratitude, freedom, love.”
