Curious about what others had to say about working with Jana?
"The best part of Jana's transformative bodywork sessions is that she cultivates a delightfully private environment in which I can completely let go and we just follow what my body wants to tell us. I feel incredibly light, cheerful, and calm afterwards. Dear Jana, I appreciate this space where I can just be and feel.“ (Dani from Berlin)
"Our body is the gate to our true being; for me, this gate was closed for a long time. Jana's enchanting, sensitive work has given me new access to myself. I was able to slowly dissolve the self-made protective wall, letting go step by step at my own pace. Held and trusted to feel myself again. Jana's sessions are a priceless gift.“ (Jessica from Hamburg)
"I met Jana by a mere chance, and got interested in her practice as I was not familiar with transformative bodywork. The joyful presence and gentle courage in her approach impacted my body and mind more than years of medical attention and physiotherapists have done. I have Erb’s palsy in my arm, and I was amazed as I became aware of my neglected and disintegrated arm wanting to become alive and seen again, as if it was dancing. Jana helped me so much by her touch full of love, trust and a gift of joy. My arm continues to dance as I started to practice what I learned from Jana.
(Roosa Näsi from Helsinki, Finland)

what is Transformative Bodywork and why is it so powerful?
Transformative Bodywork has the ability to free individuals through the powerful combination of touch, breath, and conversation. It is a key to unlocking the chains of limiting patterns and long-standing defences, revealing the rich fabric of our unique characteristics and available possibilities.
As a skilled practitioner, I work on multiple layers of the body, encouraging muscles toawaken and thrive. With deep-touch techniques, we release tension from constricted areas and promote the flow of bodily fluids or emotional release. We also pay attention to the bones, fostering a sense of grounding and connection to the world around us. Through
our work, we bring vitality and harmony to the body.
Meet Jana: Your Guide to Transformation Through the Body
Hello, I'm Jana – a transformative bodyworker with a profound connection to the body's innate wisdom. My journey is about embracing the language of the body, a language that holds the keys to your growth and healing.
Studying and teaching yoga, somatic movement, dance and touch and also navigating my own life with all its questions and challenges, I’ve learned to listen to the body's messages. Through touch, breath and dialogue, my teacher Sophie Kinkel has uncovered a unique way of guiding us out of old patterns. As a practitioner of Sophie’s Transformative Bodywork school, I am excited to share these insights with you and help you read your body’s messages.
In a world filled with responsibilities, we often overlook our body's signals. I've walked that path too, understanding the art of holding everything together. But I've also felt the toll it takes – discomfort, unrest, anxiety. These are invitations to change.
Instead of seeing discomfort as a flaw, let's view it as a catalyst for transformation. It's a sign that you're ready to answer your body's call for change. The beauty is, change doesn’t mean turning your whole life upside down. Small shifts can lead to profound freedom.
I'm not here to fix you – you're not broken. I'm here to guide you on a journey of self- discovery and empowerment. Together we make sense of your body's messages and celebrate your strength and uniqueness.
With 15 years in the realm of the body, I've taught yoga, guided somatic movement therapies, and led transformative retreats across Portugal. In our time together, you'll experience my Transformative Bodywork and join invigorating sessions like Elemental Body Activation Training.
Your commitment to transformation is reflected in the investment you make in yourself.
The retreat price is 1.490 EUR.
