Taoist Lifestyle coach/practitioner/ business owner


(Financial) administation & Marketing specialist, China Arts College, 

Fieldwork assistant Prof. dr. Dan K.J. Vercammen

“At age 5 I started practicing gymnastics and later added dancing. Later on I explored karate & taekwondo and developed a deep fascination for ancient cultures. Instead of following my heart, I was diverted to a more accepted, yet very different path that gave me an experience of life but went against my nature, so that I came to lose the connection with my inner body. Ignoring the signs, I became seriously ill in 2013. In my search for solutions to deal with my limitations, qigong came my way. In 2014 I started studying TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) with a specialization in Yang Style Taijiquan (Zheng Manqing tradition) and Medical Qigong.
