My coaching business changed my life. Coaching means owning my story. I went through the mud, picked myself up in most uncomfortable situations, kept walking, carried me home and packed me into a “sad sushi roll“ 
– mode on the couch, got up again and kept walking, dedicated to growth over a lifetime.
With fantastic human beings and animals as teachers by my side, I can truly say now, that I haven’t arrived as I am constantly learning, but I am SO ready. Today I am someone elses next step. Maybe yours?
 
After many people told me they felt „light, happy, clear, motivated, inspired, calm“ after a conversation with me, I decided to bring my skill to the next level. I hired a coach, cleaned up my past, I kept healing myself and found … alignment. The more I knew, the more I could help myself and hold space for others to heal. I love what I do. I believe in myself and in the infinite possibilities given by the universe. You really can create the life you love, sometimes without big outer changes. You just need to look a little deeper into your soul. Scary? I know … but you can’t grow and level up by laying on the couch, my dear.
Every cell in my body confirms me that by sending chills. 
Did you know … when the cells hear the truth spoken out loud, they create goosebumps.
 
So wherever you are right NOW … it’s a good day to meet yourself. You walk. And I hold your hand.
We got this.

About

Anika, Founder Gedankenpause

Love what you do and do what you love.

This sentence really means a lot to me, because every time we love what we do, right now, we spread some kind of magical energy. We walk into the right direction, we are aware of it and we spread this energy all around. We are totally with ourselves. We are real. And in love. In love with our life. I am also in love with my life. In spite of -or more because of- it is craziness. That is why I am practising the split every day. Hanumanasana. Not only on my yogamat, but also in high heels. I need that practise, because sometimes my home is a 5* Hotel in Spain for weeks, to work in a big team and organise a world dealer congress for a car brand. And in the next month I walk in India with my flip flops, teaching yoga in bamboo-built yoga studios. And I cannot tell you what I love more. The secret of the split lays in flexibility and balance. Being yourself as well in heels as in flip flops.

“We had the chance to spend two wonderful evenings with Anika during our „be healthy…“ weeks for employees at Rituals Cosmetics. It is not easy to fascinate and calm a crazy, lively group of women so deeply that you could hear a needle falling onto the ground.”

My 12 year old self started working with the belief „the more I work, the more money I make“. As I grew up with sentences „First do your homework, then you can meet your friends.. and have fun “ the seed was planted and my priority list was set. Life is not to enjoy, but first work! 
It was a reaction to the things I have been taught and a thriving towards the things I wanted: independency, safety, freedom, prosperity. A beautiful life. Still my goals, only the approach changed. Completely. It was a monday morning when it dawned on me. I was stuck with my car in a traffic jam on my way to work. A thought crossed my mind: I am not stuck in a traffic jam. I AM the traffic jam. Every day 3 hours driving in my car, 8-10 hours in an office, I am loosing too much time. Time is the highest currency I can put on the table. I need to change something. But how – I also really love my job. The change didn’t happen over night, but that day the seed was planted. A seed to a new mindset about money. The less I worry or think about money, the more I invited it into my life. How I stopped working and still let money flow in. And I am not talking „Oh great … couching all day“ it is a different kind of work … you can manifest this, too. Sometimes it just needs a spotlight on new thoughts and beliefs.

In her quiet and relaxed way she tamed us so deep that we all stayed with ourselves. It was not important that one leg was lifted higher than the other one. The usual stress and hustle and bustle of a workaday life was falling off of us.

 In hectic times like these, where we are all jumping from A to B, always under pressure, it is more important than anything to not only be there for others. Especially this important message we carried out of the lessons: you only can give energy and help others, when you are happy and clear with yourself.
Anika is really a wonderful yoga teacher, who can connect beginners with advanced yogis very well. She sparkles with energy and lust for life and you can feel that yoga isn’t just an activity for her.”

“Me, as a clear beginner, was really exited and totally hooked by our morning yoga sessions with Anika. It was a fantastic mode to starting the day, despite the very early wake-up time :-)”

I felt a completely different challenge for the body in comparison to my morning run, but I was positively surprised how challenging Yoga is and how I can reach my limitations here. Great Job, Anika, you did really well! You went into detail with every one of us and the different challenges we had. You explained the exercises in a very quiet and warm way and brought us smoothly towards our goals. Also the little philosophical touch I liked a lot.”

“While working on a project with Anika over 3 weeks I joined the yoga lessons from Anika at the beach that brought up supergreat memories. Every yoga class was like a little escape that brought back your energy which you need during such a long period of work.”

“Anika guides through every yoga class with a special theme. In my yoga practise this theme brought peace and throws a different kind of light onto some issues or challenges that I have had those days. So you find yourself out of the stressfull business mood into a inner peace that defines a good yoga class.

You can feel that Anika is not only teaching yoga but also really living it.”
