Educator and philosopher made famous for pioneering the method of self-development known as Eutony.
She suffered from several bouts with rheumatic fever and endocarditis as a young adult.
Her system of Eutony emphasized the importance of intelligence, sensitivity, and awareness rather than focusing entirely on physical exercise.
She was raised by parents that praised the theory of eurythmy, which later influenced her educational pursuits.
She and singer Lena Landrut were both originally from Germany.
