Gertrud is a retired international fencing athlete, a massage therapist, and a Reiki practitioner. She has studied different approaches to meditation and mindfulness and has a deep interest in the non-dual philosophies detailed in the eastern Shaivinist Tantras. Drawing on these and other interests, Gertrud has formalised a mindfulness practice called Embodied Meditation, which she teaches on retreat at Yobaba Lounge. The practice incorporates use of Ujjayi breath, mindful movement, and uses sound and visualisations to facilitate a deep state of meditation and awareness of inner space.
She has transformed her own life through this comprehensive healing practice.
Gertrud has also developed a mindfulness food philosophy and clean food diet which compliments and accompanies the retreats she runs.
Gertrud is hugely grateful to her teachers Anaiya Sophia, Maria Rawlins, Mangalo, Amaranatho and authors, current and historical, whose writings have given context to her journey.
