Studying the art of breathing led to her training in Martial Arts, joining the German Tae-Kwon Do Team where she competed internationally and received many medals. She met and trained with Ms. Margaretha Schmidt, Basisgymnastik, who was a student of Rudolph Laban and trained members of the German Olympic Gymnastic team. This liaison led to Maren becoming one of her personal assistants, ultimately becoming a beneficiary of her system and then co-founding the Institut for Basisgymnastik where she lectured and trained athletes, doctors, P.T. as well as governments, cities and health insurance companies.
