About me _____________________________________________________________________________

Hi, I'm Anja Ofenstein and I work as a sport psychological expert (asp) and

sport scientist (MSc) in Munich. Since as a child, I take part in dance competitions and the passion for dance and movement has never left me. 

But over the years, I have also experienced the ups and downs of

competitive sports - from failures to long-lasting injuries.


Eventually, I turned my passion into a profession and began working as a

sport scientist to help dancers, musicians and singers. Through my insights behind the stage, I became aware of the enormous pressure performers

are under every day - and usually to the detriment of their physical and

mental health. I started researching on the influence of stress on injuries

in dance and began my training as a sport psychological expert (asp).

My previous work in the sport psychological field has strenghtened my conviction that mental and physical performance as well as well-being

can only lead together to a long and successful career.


With my knowledge and experience I want to support you achieving

your best performance, whether it is on or off the stage, in training

or during competition - without compromising your health and well-being!
