From the classroom into life . . . after working many years as a special education teacher and a counselor for parents and teachers to recognize and adapt to the needs of autistic children, Andrea Kandler moved on to a different working field and environment but never changed her focus and basic motivation: a school without walls, a secure space where talents can be discovered and developed, a space in which the individuality of each person is taken seriously and becomes the foundation of a vibrant learning and living experience. This is the space of unconditional welcome, of trust, acceptance and respect... in everlasting, evergrowing awareness.
Andrea Kandler holds a Teachers Degree for Special Education from the University of Munich and worked as a teacher at a private school at the Children's Hospital Josefinum, Augsburg, and as consulting teacher for schools, teachers and parents taking care for children and adolescents with autistic behaviour in the district Svabia, Bavaria. After studying different forms of bodywork, e.g. with Dr. Leland Johnson and Auguste Erlhoff (Integrative Gestalt and Bodywork according to Dr. phil. Leland Johnson) and with Penny Prior (Hawaiian body work Lomi), she developed the educational path and body work called Ola Mai Na‘au Ali’i ® together with Penny Prior. Co-teaching with Penny Prior since.
Andrea Kandler offers single sessions and trainings in Hawaiian bodywork Ola Mai Na‘au Ali’i ® and leads a retreat program, called Noho 'ana, to rediscover and foster personal resilience, orientation and perspectives of a holistic and peacebuilding way of living. Moreover, she offers individual consulting and assistance for parents of children with autistic behaviour and other learning difficulties - also in the context of Noho 'ana, a stay at the OMNA Institute for a few days, because what we usually do not have, but what we need in these times is: time.
