Who stands behind BB4Balance?
I am Barbara Boeckenhoff, and it was my personal desire and dream to start BB4Balance. My story and background are certainly a bit dissimilar from most of the people that work in this field.
For 15 years, I was in `do-modus´ in the automotive industry (Porsche AG), out of which 10 years in management, 6 years working and living abroad with lots of traveling. I preferred to spend my free time with power sports so that I came along Yin Yoga, Meditation and Energy work just by coincidence. I learned how powerful mindfulness and reflection can be, and how to master everyday challenges and decisions with inner strength.
Because of my positive experiences, I took several trainings to learn all these methods and tools over the past years. As I do like to support YOU how I did receive and experience support, well-being, vitality, and emotional tidiness. And, I also understand and can help you with work- and business-related challenges.
It is my personal desire to guide you on your way and your development.
Recharge your batteries.
AND WHO AM I?
I enjoy sports and live an active, healthy lifestyle, am fond of sun and nature, but also love beautiful things in life such as good food, wine, espresso, clothes, well-being and enjoying the moment. Time with family and friends is very important to me, also relaxing and reading. Furthermore, I like discovering countries and cultures.
HOW ABOUT MY BUSINESS HISTORY?
In parallel to BB4Balance, I manage a consulting business, where I advise on middle size businesses, the automobile sector, but also young entrepreneurs out of the energy coaching/ yoga/ well-being area on their way to success.
As a child I often went to group outings and activities, where the organizers obviously also practiced mindfulness and meditation with us – at that time, I was not aware, but it felt good. Since 2010, I do practice Yoga, especially restorative, Yin, and some active forms. Besides, I got in touch with energy work through a massage therapist; I always wondered about her magic hands because I just felt extremely released and clear after her sessions – until I asked her, what her trick was. In 2016 I spent 2 weeks in India for Ayurveda and Yoga. After all those and many more experiences, I decided to apply all those methods and knowledge myself to be able to offer it to other like-minded people. It is fascinating how you develop personally, how things just get in the flow, and how to work on blockages that everyone has, on an efficient way. No need to carry these along for years and to worry why life does not go smoothly.
