She considers herself a "Yin Yan"- Woman - 50 % business, 50 % mindfulness. Only recently she started to bring those two passions together introducing Mindfulness practices into the business world at her former workplace. As she realized the relevance of "mind care" at work she decided to start her own and still young business Zen & Go.
Slow down to go fast
The philosophy of Zen & Go is to support you being focused, at ease and happy at work. We provide you with tools for your daily life. Everything you learn is easy to integrate into busy days with a full agenda. We are aiming to help you to relax and focus ("Zen") and then bring your full potential, creativity and engagement into the world ("& Go") .
