I am a mechanical engineer by education (MSc), specialized in ergonomics. I then followed a paramedical education in posture and exercise therapy (Mensendieck method) in Amsterdam, before graduating from an Executive MBA at HEC Lausanne.
I created TRAIN YOUR POSTURE in 2007. After an international carreer, I was called from 2013 to 2017 to be the Head of Consulting at the University Institute for Work and Health in Lausanne (Switzerland). I am also the founder of Erg'OH Conseil Sàrl, a consulting company that advises the most prestigious Swiss companies in ergonomics and prevention of muscle and joint pain. As such, I am a member of the Logitech Ergo LabScientific Advisory Board.
I am regularly invited for national and international conferences, media interviews or academic lectures, both in Switzerland and abroad. I am the author of The Posture Manual (in French and in English).
the backstage story...
TRAIN YOUR POSTURE
The mission of TRAIN YOUR POSTURE is to participate in a better prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. Clients' long-term autonomy is my motto. Hence, I do not manipulate your body: if I do not touch you, you do not become dependent on me.
My job is to teach you how to understand and use your body in all your daily activities, so at to limit its overuse. I only work with exercises that you will ideally carry out between mirrors. I target the individual and environmental causes of musculoskeletal disorders, not their symptoms.
The difference also lies in the flexibility of the approach: I accompany you wherever you need me, be it at work, at home or in your hobbies.
TRAIN YOUR POSTURE is the Swiss ambassador of a Northern-European therapeutic approach. Sharing and confronting knowledge and paradigms is my passion. I usually work in French and in English, sometimes in Dutch and German.
