I always start out by telling the audience “don’t just trust me on my words; feel it, check it in your own body”. Once your feel it in your body, it is not only information but an experience that will stay with you. When you have tasted the benefits of moving, you just want to move more.
Personal profile: My name is Ir. Susanne Klappe (1968) and I used to work as a management consultant. I studied Business Engineering and Management Science at the University of Twente. My current job description is a little broader; mother, trainer, bodyworker, yoga-teacher, coach, consultant, speaker, writer and business owner.
How this came about? As a management consultant I always was interested in the effects of our bodies on our performance. “80% percent of our communication is through our body posture” they said, but they left it at that. This 80% never left me. I was on a quest. What is energy, charisma, leadership, intuition,…?
The birth of my daughter, Anne, was a turning point. Anne was born with a disability and that was another important reason all together to study the body. Since then I started Bodywise, a yoga- and pilates-center. I also kept doing consultancy work and giving talks and workshops on vitality in organizations.
