Hi and thank you for coming to find out who I am..:
My full name is Mr Chukwuemeka Ejindu, most people call me Meka.
You know.... What I have learned about myself over the 10 years I have been teaching skiing & snowboarding is the amount of joy it gives me as an activity but more importantly, the indescribable feeling I get when I watch my client "get it", to watch a client surpass even their wildest expectations of themselves!
I have been working for 9 years in the Tirol region of Austria & one year (season) in Sierra Nevada (Spain) as a dual Snowsports coach and in that time I discovered that I am teaching a lot more than just physical movements on Snowsports equipment, I am guiding people how to tap into the best version of themselves, their courage, their strength, their skill they may not know they already have, This is why I wake up in the morning!
I want to share this experience with You, towards the real life experience/feeling of Alpine Skiing & Snowboarding you are searching for & maybe helping You see You and all amazing things You are capable of, something You didn't realise You are searching for.
I believe, if You want to get ready for the mountain, learn what the mountain really demands and learn yourself, so You know You can deliver what the mountain demands! This is exactly where I come in.
I have a natural highly energetic motivating character and I love teaching with it ensuring fun & safety and the feeling of achievement are highest on the list of priorities for my clients. I am always hungry for more knowledge and diverse experiences in this Sport. From that I have realised the deeply therapeutic benefits for my clients, young & old, in their daily lives as well as the unique experience as a teacher/guide of opening up people’s minds to possibilities within themselves they haven't dreamt of yet.
In the end, it doesn’t matter to me on what equipment or level skier/snowboarder I am coaching and I have no problem teaching 6 year olds to seniors, groups or individuals (private), a days teaching always leaves me feeling fulfilled & hungry for more.
Service level & the client, You, are what I am all about! With my long and varied Alps trained experience coupled with my never-ending drive to motivate & patience & troubleshooting skill-set to see the real issues holding you back, I will be able to bring You a very high level of client-focused service & heart felt dedication to creating change to Your Alpine experience by enhancing Your self-knowledge & confidence, technical knowledge & riding skill set, tuning You into and ready for the big mountain.
My training process is built from time crafted trouble-shooting/analytical skills, cutting to the root of my client’s issues with their riding and then creating solid permanent (memorable) solutions to address all my client may have been facing with their riding. From physical/material to psychological, from technique to self-belief, my goal is to guide you, the client to your solutions, to your style and your feeling to your joy at being able to you want to do when you strap or clip in to "shred the Gnar!!"
I look forward to showing you what I learned and thank you so much for taking time to understand me.
