She was joined by Pauline Marksteiner in 2007 and with their combined skills, have developed the Oasis concept still further from its original conception. In 2016 Nicole Weinberger begins her collaboration with Oasis and while Karin Jarman has focused in expanding her teaching in Europe and Thailand, Pauline Marksteiner and Nicole Weinberger are now starting in January 2018 their second group “Making Sense of Life“.
