    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi there!
    My name is Gioia. I am from Leipzig, Germany. Here I opened up a women's center and creative space where I host female empowerment, Ho'oponopono (Hawaiian conflict resolution/healing technique), Women's Health and Ayurveda workshops as well as yoga and meditation classes. Also I am training to become a psychotherapist and do ongoing Female Empowerment and Women's Health Courses.
    Also I love being creative - besides the work I do in the women's center, my second passion is Art. So far I only had one exhibition of my drawings in an Art Gallery in Berlin, but I am hoping to find time to do more.

    Since I love traveling (in 2016 I traveled around the world for 9 months and did workaway there too) and in the summer months less people come to workshops which means it makes sense to close the center for a summer break, I want to take a month of to go traveling.

    I enjoy being around and working with kids. I have done workaway so far in Hawaii and Scotland as a Nanny and had many childcare side jobs in Germany. When I was a teen my mom used to have a creative center for kids and did arts and craft classes where I used to help out.
    Other then that I like animals, being nature and cooking. Before I had my studio, I wrote a vegan cookbook for kids. I like gardening (as long as it isn't in a very hot climate all day). I am an outgoing, joyful, talkative, reliable and honest person and love to meet new people, but I also need space and time for myself. Living a healthy and balanced life is important to me - having time to move (yoga/sports/dancing/...), being outside in nature and healthy food is important to me.

    I am excited to meet you!
