Briefly describe yourself… I am fascinated with Reiki (esotheric) and I also try to keep my body and mind in shape with yoga.
Talk us through your average day… I try to wake up early and check the weather with my morning coffee. Then I pick up my friends and we decide where to go. On the way to the top of the mountain, in the gondola, that’s the best time to enjoy breakfast. After an amazing day in the park or backcountry I leave the mountain with an incredible smile on my face. Later on I take a nap, stretch a bit and try to get my e-mail work done.
