Meet Daniela

Hi! I’m Daniela and the founder of Bodies at Work and hope to provide valuable information and services to freelancers and entrepreneurs who aim to create change in the world and are dedicated to do work that matters.

I have been a freelancer most of my life. I’ve always loved my work, whatever it was I was doing. But I didn’t always have a healthy approach to work and ended up with health issues and 7 years of chronic pain. I’ve created Bodies at Work to share my knowledge about how to tap into your body intelligence to achieve more with less effort.

Since 2011 I have been training people in body attention and awareness that connects body and mind. Previously, my field of expertise was in communications. I am a professional translator and language expert.

Seeing that language is just one way of communication and that you as a person are more powerful when you communicate with your whole body, has been the natural development for me and I am happy to dedicate my professional life to spreading this practical knowledge and simple approach with motivated professionals who want more from life by doing less.

What clients say about working with me

THROUGH OUR WORK TOGETHER SHE HELPED ME TO RECONNECT WITH THE INNER WISDOM OF MY BODY

I worked with Daniela over a two month period, and found her inspiring on so many levels. I went to see her for both personal and professional reasons, but what they both had in common was the body….Through our work together she helped me to reconnect with the inner wisdom of my body, not just during our face-to-face sessions or skype calls, but also in my day to day life. It’s something that I continue to build upon each day. I’d highly recommend her services to anyone who is on a self-development journey.

… suddenly enabled a letting go and I found myself ‘dropping from my headspace back into my body’

Prior to my first session with Daniela I had a clear topic in mind that I wanted to discuss. Within a few minutes only Daniela’s no-nonsense, down-to-earth approach actually uncovered the underlying theme. The subsequent guided breathing exercises paired with gently squeezes on my limbs and a few spot-on questions suddenly enabled a letting go and I found myself ‘dropping from my headspace back into my body’ – such a liberating and exquisite experience!

Auch in meinem Denken ist nun mein Körper mehr integriert und ich kann mehr aus dem Vollen schöpfen.

Die Stunde bei Dir hat so viel Energie in mir freigesetzt! Mir ist bewusst geworden, wie ich mir durch meine Atmung schnell und reichlich Kraft holen kann. Für meine Präsenz auf der Bühne ist diese Kraftquelle die Basis! Mit Deiner vertrauensvollen, motivierenden Art hast Du mich dort hin gebracht. Auch in meinem Denken ist nun mein Körper mehr integriert und ich kann mehr aus dem Vollen schöpfen. Ich Danke Dir vielmals!!

„With Daniela’s help I feel much more relaxed and content in my day to day life.“

Before I started working with Daniela I had moments of anxiousness that left me paralyzed and not wanting to be around people in those moments. I also felt incapable of confronting any problems, no matter how small, and felt overwhelmed in various everyday situations.
Since I have started my bodywork sessions with Daniela, I am less anxious and have more confidence in difficult emotional situations. I have also benefited from the breathing techniques Daniela has taught me to use if I ever feel taken over by an emotion. I have learned how to accept these emotions, then let these feelings flow through me and eventually let them go instead of holding on to them.
My journey is still continuing. With Daniela’s help I feel much more relaxed and content in my day to day life.
