Mindfulness for You and Your Horse

Dashing around makes your muscles tense. If you are in a hurry, try to move smoothly and build up to full speed, remembering to breathe at the same time!

 At the yard, start off with tasks that are easier on your back such as feeding horses, and leading them to the field.Then you can proceed with the heavier work such as mucking out and carrying water buckets about. As you work be aware of your breathing and the way you move around- for example do you stoop forwards when you walk or carry things more in one hand than the other? Grooming your horse can be a good workout in itself. Applying pressure as you brush him is good for toning your arms, bending down to pick his feet out and to brush his legs is good for your leg and back strength. Relax and breather as you groom- you will enjoy the experience as much as your horse!

Meditation

What is meditation?

Meditation is about bringing your attention to the present moment- your thoughts and feelings, and the world around you. This often called ‘mindfulness’. It helps you to recognise your own thoughts and anxiety , and enables you to deal with adverse feelings earlier, building self-confidence and self-esteem, and ability to cope with stressful situations. Meditation is about enjoying the moment and to see yourself in a kind and positive way. Learning techniques that can be used for a short time each day can help to introduce calmness into your life, reducing the body’s signs of stress such as high blood pressure, feelings of panic, shortness of breathe and so on. Meditation promotes a holistic feeling of well-being for both mind and body.

Reiki for You

Reiki for you

reiki room

You will be fully clothed lying on a couch or sitting on a chair. I will place my hands just above or lightly touch, different areas of you body, concentrating on where the energy is most needed.  During this treatment, you may feel heat, coolness, tingling, or just a deep sense of peace and relaxation. During a treatment, I will channel this energy through my hands and use it to rebalance the chakras, or centres of energy.

Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki ( Universal life force) was discovered by Dr Usui. Reiki  is used to provide that extra boost for the body, allowing it to begin the process of self-healing. There is an ancient belief in traditional Chinese Medicine that all physical bodies have a life force or “chi” that flows around us along energy paths called meridians, with centres of energy at various points called chakras.
