with Paula Josa-Jones 
​​September 22-25, 2020 
​​If you have horses in your life, this retreat clinic is for you! Whether you are a trail rider, competitive rider, work with your horses on the ground, do liberty work, volunteer at a rescue or therapeutic riding center.... for all of us, where it all starts is by having a true connection with our horses.
 
This workshop is for those who would like to become more attuned, happy and successful in their relationship with their horses (and other animal companions) regardless of the discipline or experience. The practices you will learn support the goals of being mindful, steady and kind as we work and play with our horses.

'MAKING IT EASY FOR YOU AND YOUR HORSE'  
A workshop blending Feldenkrais® and 
Tellington TTouch® Methods
with Edie Jane Eaton
October 19-23, 2020
 
​​Your days will be spent moving between learning TTouch® and Feldenkrais® techniques, experiencing their benefits for yourself, and carrying what you've learned to the horses.​​

Our time with the horses will consist of a lot of hands-on experience, demonstrations and discussion of concepts and techniques. You will learn how to relieve tension, fear of contact, soreness or discomfort and transform nervous, spooky or resistant horses and improve attitude and behavior. You will also learn techniques to speed healing and recovery from injury and illness in horses. The TTouch techniques for first-aid offer horse owners an invaluable tool.

The retreat includes simple yet powerful and profound Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons. ATM uses slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind.   ​

with Terry Crisafulli 
​​August 21-22, 2020

You will learn about the benefits, available modalities, when body work is appropiate, which signs to look for in a horse that will tell you something is wrong, causes of problems and how to prevent them.

This is a hands-on clinic, one of the highlights is to learn how to connect Touch to Response: the interaction between you and the horse that leads to the finding and release of tension, or stress in the horse.
