Annette Böhmer


Hey, I’m Annette Böhmer (1974), the founder of Holistic Warrior®.

My vision is to help others be “Holistic Warriors”, a whole new type of person, courageous, innovative and responsible, with a clear vision, who wants to grow and achieve their goals while living the best possible version of themselves in every area of their lives.

HWX (Holistic Warrior Xperience) describes the Holistic Warrior lifestyle. This is about a sustainable, modern lifestyle, linked to a higher mission to inspire and move others, making a difference in the world every day.

I am a heart person, entrepreneur and mother. As a holistic and neuro-centered coach, she draws on a wide range of methods, from Design Thinking to High Performance CoachingTM to Yoga. Annette has developed this joyful and highly effective HOLISTIC WARRIOR® approach for the modern person who, like herself, wants MORE, wants to achieve their goals, wants to fully realize their potential, wants to live their life purpose daily and create impact.

HWX Planner is the perfect tool for just that! Annette is a Certified High Performance Coach®, a unique “gold standard” coaching approach that positively and forward-thinkingly helps everyone reach higher levels in all areas of life. She has developed unique coaching programs to holistically help people transform their lives, develop greater awareness, manifest their dream life and dream business while always thinking and acting sustainably, making the best possible impact and expression in the world.

After 12 years of creative research and innovation work with the methods of Human Centered Design / Design Thinking, Annette created a new mainstay in 2019 with Holistic Warrior®, where she bundles all her know-how into customized holistic and human-centered offerings for individuals, teams and organizations.

In addition, Annette has been running a successful undogmatic yoga school in Düsseldorf, YogaKitchen, since 2010. Since 2010, Annette has been training yoga teachers in Vinyasa and Hatha yoga styles at a high level every year. Join one of her classes! They are also available in livestream or in the course archive!

“I am very grateful to my teachers for the teachings I have been privileged to receive from them. In particular, that yoga is a philosophy of life based on compassion towards all living beings (Jivamukt®) and that we are ultimately a reflection of our brain state with our thoughts, speech and actions (Z-Health®Performance), which in turn calls us to work on ourselves daily to grow on all levels (High Performance Coaching®).”

All themethods I talk about and teach/ coach are proven by applying them on myself first and of course also on another bunch of people. I believe in continuous evolution in life and that’s why I alwaysput lots of time and effort intolearning and applying new stuff.

My mission is to help individuals, teams and companies to leverage their full innovative potential. Therefore understanding the specific needs and future challenges for me is always the starting point. I love to guide individuals and teams th­rough analytic insights phases as well as through inspiring, fun and creati­ve ideation and prototyping sessions.

Through studies of the human brain, posi­tive psychology and philosophy, I always take the holistic view on any kind of problem.

My educational background is a Diploma in Geography and Economy. I have been applying Design Research / Empathetic Research methods for almost 20 years. I was working as a research consultant and customer expe­rience expert in the tourism, finance and telecommunication industry.

Since 2007 I am a certified yoga teacher, since 2011 a certified Jivamukti™ teacher and since 2018 I have been studying the Z-Health™ curriculum (neuro-athletic training) where I already got R-, I-, S- and T-Phase certification as well as 9S Next Evolution, Speed and Structure. In 2019 I became a Certified High Performance Coach™.

During my 10 years at Deutsche Telekom Innovation Laboratories, I have become an expert in applying and teaching design thinking. Through design thinking, I learned to consequently put the customer in the center of all innovation thinking.

I have more than 10 years of work experience in designing and moderating customized workshops and training formats.

Coaching Assistence with focus: emotional intelligence, authentic speech

Hello, I am Maria Kirchhoff (1984) and in May 2021 I jumped on board of Holistic Warrior. I met Annette myself as a participant of Design. Your. Life (DYL). And what can I say: I jumped right into it and powerfully started my professional transformation towards coaching. Here I go!

I support Annette in the creation, improvement, implementation and communication of her programs and can draw on my knowledge of creative development processes, which I acquired as a consultant for cultural education in project design. Creative work in creation mode is very familiar to me and I know valuable methods and work settings that lead to the creation of a cultural project from a blank sheet of paper or an empty space, an idea.

“People heal from their pain when they have an authentic connection with another human being.” – Marshall B. Rosenberg

I am a passionate practitioner of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and in search of more knowledge and experience about NVC, energy and feelings work in a constant process of learning and growth. In this process I experience the healing effect of human feelings and their authentic expression as a gift for a more peaceful togetherness. Here, for me, lies the key to conflict resolution, community and personal growth.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch

I am always driven by the curious search for a meaningful life in which I can unfold in my lived truth. In this attitude I myself have gone through formative processes of change: dismissal, years of travel, motherhood, professional reorientation. Life is change and change is always an opportunity for change of perspective, learning and growth!

Be courageous and always work on an intimate and trustful connection to your inner truth. It makes your life rich in clarity, authenticity and meaningfulness!

I want to support people in finding their authentic voice and bringing it effectively into the world!

Sensitivity, empathy, zest for life, passion, curiosity.
