Janine Holenstein

English , French , German and Romanian
Sulina, Danube Delta, Romania


Janine has worked in a lot of different professions - from leather goods vendor to alpine cheese maker, from socio-medical assistant to wilderness tour guide and many more. She loves to combine her past experiences with new ones, which brought her to the Feldenkrais Method in 1998 and she still practices that with lots of (com)passion.

When she met Michael Krugman in 2004 yet another interest got sparked, partly also because of her own long history with troubled sleep.

She soon assisted in Sounder Sleep teacher trainings and together they lectured on the Sounder Sleep System for doctors and therapists, Michael presenting the theory, Janine the practices. He said about her: ‘As the creator of this system, it makes me happy to see she has become a trainer who surpasses me in teaching it’.

Since 2020 Janine trains Feldenkrais Practitioners wanting to become professional Sounder Sleep Teachers in Saillans, France, in Winterthur, Switzerland and in Königs Wusterhausen, Germany in her personal and unique way – and keeps on expanding her own continued learning together with and thanks to her students' interest.

She currently lives in the vast wilderness of the Danube Delta in Romania, where she enjoys deliciously tranquil nights and days, mostly outdoors in her garden or in nature around - when not travelling.

There will be Sounder Sleep trainings and follow-up workshops in that magnificent and soothing place starting in 2024 for those interested. Please contact Janine directly for more information.
