About Essentially Moving

Also available in: de - Deutsch

My name is Valerie Hartwich.

I am a massage therapist and yoga teacher with a psychology/sociology background working in Berlin and online.

I practice and teach a non-dogmatic, non-dualistic and demystified spirituality.

I give group yoga classes and workshops in various styles, but also 1-on-1 massage and psychosomatic work, the interplay of body/mind/emotions.

How can I help you find more agency, empowerment and joy in your life?

By uncovering the patterns that hold you back, and strategies for change.

 By sharing simple practices to ground and balance yourself. 

By helping you define your central values.

By bringing these together as building blocks of a down to earth spirituality.

One person described how they felt after a class in these words:

“I feel light and joyous like a million pieces of glittering happiness are flowing through my body like a beautiful shiny, sparkly liquid. “

We are a good fit if you also see spirituality as:

– an exploration of what it means to be human, on an individual and collective basis,

– a practice to find the best possible way to harmoniously engage in life.

I will help you understand yourself, how life has shaped you, so you can reclaim your agency, your ability to make conscious choices. This ability is what will root you in yourself and in the world, bringing you joy.

I speak English/German/French/Portuguese. So language is not a barrier.

We will work together to develop your self-awareness and, through it, agency over your physical, mental and emotional well-being via tools you can use in daily life. We’ll start with awareness because it’s key to feeling and understanding the source of tension and discomfort, making it possible to find effective ways to shift it.

It will help you communicate more effectively with your body and emotions, and impact the effects they have on each other. Whether it is a postural pattern or an attitude in life that becomes embodied, we will work to understand and counterbalance those with new and healthy patterns.

Every person is unique, so my work makes space to explore until you find what works and resonates with you!
