SKI AND SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR
INSTRUCTOR-PROFILE MARTINA HOLZACH:
Discipline: SNOWBOARD, SKI
Education: NZSIA (New Zealand Snowsport Alliance), Level 1
Languages: English, German, French
Growing up in Davos I started skiing as soon as I started walking. Later snowboarding filled that spot and I started riding and training for Halfpipe competitions.
This took me all the way to New Zealand, where I ended up staying, studying psychology and Japanese. After my master in psychology I spend many years in the Himalayas, studying Buddhism, leading treks and teaching yoga.
In order to deepen my interest in Buddhism and psychology, I moved to Colorado where I pursued my education in contemplative psychotherapy with a strong focus on Buddhism. I worked as a crisis counselor and as a mental performance coach for a ski team.
Integrating mindfulness and awareness in all my area of life, especially when teaching skiing and snowboarding is one of my focuses. I can show you how to experience a flow state in your skiing and snowboarding. This class teaches you how to access your mental tools, overcome blockages, where you become one with your skis/snowboard and the mountain. You will learn the skills that you can integrate into your daily life to be more in the moment and hence experience a richer life.
You can be an expert or just at the beginning of your snow adventures to take this class.
I ski, snowboard, climb, mountain bike, do yoga, and read a lot. My favorite place to be is in the mountains, preferably covered with sparkling fresh snow.
I am looking forward meeting you and showing you why I am so passionate about it.
