Margarete Eller, Ohashiatsu Austria

Margarete Eller, Ohashiatsu® Senior Instructor, is the founder and director of Ohashiatsu in Austria.

From 1999 to 2002, she was trained by Master Ohashi at the Ohashi Institute in New York and has since taught the Ohashiatsu program in various countries of Europe, the USA and Canada, as well as online. 

Born and raised in Germany, Margarete first became a gardener and then completed her masters studies of Urban Planning at the University of Dortmund. Due to her countryside childhood, she always felt naturally connected to the mysteries of life, which led her on a spiritual, body-oriented life journey. Through various practices, such as Bioenergetics, Kyudo, Tai Ji and Yoga, she encountered Sufism and Ohashiatsu, two paths that keep filling her life with lightness, harmony and joy. 

Margarete's Ohashiatsu sessions and courses are an expression of her gratitude and desire to share this gift with others.
