MARTINA HOLZACH -

SKI AND SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR

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 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.
