Healing & Connection Workshop. Saturday 20th June - 10 - 4pm. Vegetarian lunch included.
Healing and connection both begin with energy awareness. And this begins with you! So we will start at the beginning, learning about and becoming aware of our own energy and the impact it has on ourselves and those around us. We will also be incorporating mindfulness, which is hugely beneficial when we're with horses. We will then learn about the horse and his/her perception of energy and how we can become more in tune with him/her through this awareness. Horses are incredibly energy aware and we can learn to handle them using our and their energy fields and the energy of intention, as well as developing an intuitive relationship with them. Healing with energy grows naturally from this connection and is wonderfully enhancing for the horse and human relationship - and the more you do the more the trust and connection between you will grow.
Massage your Horse Workshop. Sunday 21st June - 10 - 4pm. Vegetarian lunch included.
Learn basic assessment and massage techniques to help your horse stay supple and comfortable. On this workshop you will get to know the muscles of the horse, learn to assess your horse prior to treatment and how to give your horse a maintenance massage with three easy to learn massage techniques. For those who attended Saturday's workshop, we will also be using the energy awareness and intuition we learned yesterday to add another dimension to your massage toolbox. Massage is a great way to help your horse live and work in ease and comfort. It has many benefits including:
- relieving muscle spasm and tightness
- promoting good blood flow and release of toxins
- strengthening muscles and maintaining the health of the nervous system
- aiding recovery and helping to maintain muscle tone if the horse is on box rest/unridden
- reducing risk of injury
- relaxing, comforting and calming the horse
