Mindful strolls through Vienna

Mindful tour of senses for Expats

Would you like to reduce everyday stress and clear your mind? Are you ready to open your senses to the city of Vienna in order to explore it and yourself in a mindful way? Then I would be happy if you join me on mindful walks through Vienna.

What to expect

  • Mindful inner and outer exploration walks through Vienna and the surrounding area
  • Mindful perception of the city, e.g. by attentive hearing, admiring at facades, perceiving smells (there are also many nice ones 😉)
  • Mindful walking, feeling the ground beneath your feet
  • Qi Gong and breathing exercises in peaceful places, e.g. in parks
  • Standing and walking body awareness exercises, grounding yourself
  • Mindful sharing of experiences
  • Optional: coffee house visit at the end of the tour – mindful enjoyment of tea or coffee

How you benefit from it

I am looking forward to exploring the city with you!

Why I offer these walks

I love to walk – it’s the slowest and therefore best way for me to discover the city and its surroundings – be it through conscious listening to the ‚city sounds‘ or through a mindful gaze that inspires me to take photos. I’m always on the lookout for small green and quiet oases in the city that invite me to pause and give me peace. I would like to share these places and my experiences through mindfulness and Qi Gong practice with you, as well as my passion for walking, for Qi Gong, for a mindful life, for discovery tours.
I highly value encounters between different people from different cultures and find (intercultural) exchange very exciting, enriching and also important.
I like to support people to feel comfortable with themselves, so that joy, lightness and enjoyment can unfold in life.
