The 5 Elements Wisdom Academy was founded and created by Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Tobias Tang Ørnebjerg, in co-creation with 5 Element Yoga Therapist, Marcela Mota and Dr. Nienke Stoop.

The Academy was born out of a vision Tobias had 20 years ago, while spending time with shamans high up in the Andean Mountains. He had a deep realization that a shift in perception was needed on a planetary level. That the way we were conducting our lives and treating each other and Mother Earth was not sustainable.

From that moment on, a quest began to find the best remedies and to be part of the solution.

This Academy is our contribution.

If Spirit whispers,


If Spirit calls,


If Spirit stands at the gates,

Open wholeheartedly.

Our vision

We aspire to share the knowledge and profound wisdom that these 4 pillars hold.  Through our various programs we offer theoretical and practical teachings on:

5 Elements of Nature, Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation, Taoist Face Reading,  Shamanic Rituals and Ceremonies, Cutting Edge Science, Vibrational Medicine,  Quantum Healing, Food as Medicine and Free Diving as a spiritual practice.

We seek to create a safe environment where we can transform our limiting beliefs and conditionings and connect with our true nature. We believe that only from that space,  real change can occur in our world.

We want to help you become the most authentic version of yourself and be in service in the best way possible.

We strive to deepen our intimate connection with Mother Earth so that we can live in accordance, awe and caring for the planet that holds us all so gracefully and in such beauty.

Our core values


The Earth is our home. Our Body is our vehicle through life. By honoring our natural surroundings, seeing how we are rooted in the earth and dependent on nature for our survival, we celebrate our connection and manifestation within the physical realm.


Everything is Energy. Earth is spinning and speeding through space, taking us along on a journey through the universe. By honoring our spirit nature, the void that is neither empty nor full, we bow to the light that fuels us with life.


‘In Lakesh’ – you are another me. The old Inca Saying inspires us to see and honor the interconnectedness of all beings. The web of life, holding us in an infinite embrace,  builds upon the interdependence of all beings.
