"The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education uses slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind.

...as well as riding your horse! The integration of the Feldenkrais work into my teaching and my work with horses will enable me to help you and your horse move better individually and together.
Are you interested in learning:
How the nervous system uses pain to protect and why it is harmful to "work through the pain" and what to do instead?
Why strengthening your core is not necessarily the answer to back pain or a better seat?
Why practice makes permanent rather than perfect - for our horses and us?
How our habits are influencing how we move, learn, and live?

This is a video I made for a marketing project during the Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training. It shows how versatile our life as horsepeople is and how Feldenkrais can support us not only in our riding. Also, you will see some nice scenes from our trails in our backyard :-)
