I was born and raised in Bavaria, Germany, from where I moved to the US in 1996. After experiencing severe depletion and imbalance of the nervous system, and the limited possibilities in western medicine, I began the search of an alternative healing approach and discovered yoga in the year of 2000. After establishing a regular yoga practice, the healing effects of feeling physically and mentally much more balanced allowed me to address everyday life challenges in a very different approach and stirred curiosity of “what else is there to learn”.

I finished a 200 hr training through the Yoga Center of Minneapolis in 2009 and loved being surrounded by kind-hearted people and a variety of great teachers. In 2010 I took an intensive weekend training with Dharma Mittra at the Yoga center in Minneapolis.

In 2014 I deepened the knowledge of yoga philosophy by studying with Ben Vincent in his 9months ‘Advanced Yoga Study Program’, and at the beginning of 2015 I completed an intensive 4 day training“Inner Axe training” with Max Strom at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis.

In late fall of 2015 Birgit I became a certified Doula through Blooma, a yoga studio in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Being curious in how our subconscious mind and our conscious mind operate, I completed a 18 month NLP (Neuro-Linguistic-Programming) course to be certified as a Therapeutic coach. My path led me to become interested in Reiki - Healing, Healing through touch and I was attuned as a Reiki Master after studying with Mirtha Solis, Meta institute and completing the course.

In 2011 I found Qigong master Chuny Lin, the founder of Spring Forest Qigong and after studying with Master Lin to accomplish Level IV Master Healer I also qualified as a Spring Forest Qigong practice group leader.
With the practice of Qigong I felt an important shift in my own body, a deeper connection to the physical and mental body. Intrigued with the practice of this ancient healing art, I deepened my Qigong study with Master Mingtong Gu in 2016 through an online course of “Healing the organs and emotions” through Sound.

I believe that, when we practice TOGETHER we are in a group field and enhance healing properties, expand our consciousness and build stronger communities, that is why I love to teach yoga, Qigong and energy healing classes and workshops. In my free time I enjoy being with my children, creating art and Nature as well as volunteering at different facilities in the Twin Cities.

The fast growing field of Energy medicine healing, now widely acknowledged by western science has become my main interest and in my work as an energy medicine healer I will hold space for the person to lift his/her frequency to enhance the body’s own healing process. These healings can occur on a cellular level, repair of DNA and unblocking energy in the blood flow. In 2017 I took the 40 hours foundational course of VortexHealing, Divine Energy Healing which helped to further evolve my energy system and allows me to channel divine light and consciousness. VortexHealing is a path to transform emotional patterns, heal the body, and to awake to True Self.

I hold certifications in Spring Forest Qigong Master Healer Level IV Reiki Master NLP TC (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Therapeutic Coach Master Hypnosis Therapy VortexHealing Divine Energy Healing - basic course Doula Yoga instructor Qigong instructor CE Contemplative Mindfulness with Jack Kornfield and Dr. Segal Selfstudy of Chinese medicine, nutrition, Ayurveda and homeopathy

My intention in my classes, in individual sessions and every day living is, practicing unconditional love, sharing the teachings she has learned and encourage ‘SELF HEALING ‘ its numerous tools and modalities TO EVERYONE, being a life long student and open to all possibilities.
