Ivan Houppertz




Rock Climbing Instructor-

I hold a state certificate in Climbing in Natural Environments (DEJEPS) and I'm also certified in Tree Climbing. I regularly take people to climb trees and spend the night on a hammock at the top, in the middle of the forest!

I'm also a certified Feldenkrais practitioner. Felden Method is a way to improve motor skills leading to more pleasure while practicing your favorite activity but also a tool to seek performance, get rid of pains or regain confidence after an injury. As I'm aware of the way you're moving, I can guide you towards a better movement. If you like, we can start or finish the day on a yoga mat.

Join me for a fantastic experience in nature!

If I'm busy when you wish to come bouldering in Fontainebleau, I'll connect you with another exceptional rock climbing instructor I often collaborate with, namely Léo, Damien, or Jérémie. Not only are they highly skilled, but they are also passionate about coaching others and enabling them to discover the beauty of Fontainebleau.

My 17 year old son spend 2 days doing guided bouldering with Leo. He was initially scheduled with Ivan but there was a last minute change due to unforeseen circumstances which was fine. This was well coordinated and communicated. My son really enjoyed his time with Leo who was very knowledgeable and friendly! He did a great job designing the trip around our requests and my son got to work on several world class boulders! Great communication and he spoke good English. Thank you Leo for a great 2 day! We would definitely recommend both Leo and the Explore-Share Service!
