Founder of the Somatic Academy Berlin, Kai is a breath therapist (based on Prof. Ilse Middendorf’s Breathexperience), a Continuum teacher and holder of the German Heilpraktiker license for psychotherapy. His passion is the cultivation of the conscious body and its integration in and impact on personal development, health, communication and society at large - through somatic learning and experiential knowledge building in collaborative structures. Middendorf's Breathexperience and Continuum form the foundation of his understanding of somatics. "I had the honor and the privilege to learn from the two founders Prof. Ilse Middendorf and Emilie Conrad and I am grateful to be able to pass on this work." Since 2012, Kai has been developing professional education and training programs at the Somatic Academy Berlin. He has also been co-curator of the Body IQ festival since 2015 and he is a member of the professional associations ATEM and ISMETA and a member of the Continuum Teachers' Association. Since 2003, he has been developing his own method called "Authentic Eros", which integrates somatics, bodywork, communication and group-dynamic processes in the area of sexuality and personality development. Kai has been teaching internationally since 2002 and works in Berlin and New York City.
