A very unique and special clinic that makes changes to body and mind, allowing horse and rider to work harmoniously together.
Each clinic will include the following; – First day will include your hour long initial ridden assessment with Ann and Jen this lesson is split into three segments including the rider and horse assessment, rider off horse bodywork session followed by biomechanics lesson. – Pilates session (day 1 only) – Video feedback and discussion to consolidate the changes you were feeling. – Second day starts with a Private 45min body and mind session with Jen off horse, this can include, (with your permission) changes to internal dialog and limiting beliefs that no longer serve you or is blocking your progress.
Followed immediately for your 45min lesson with Ann to maximise the changes in your body and feedback from your horse. – Video feedback and discussion to maximise the changes made over the two days.
Jenny Abdelnoor – New Zealand
Hi I’m Jen, a UK trained Physiotherapist, Movement Specialist and Bodyworker currently living in and loving New Zealand. I am a horse rider/ owner and Equine and Human Bodyworker. I have my own Physiotherapy practice and Pilates Studio.
My work has led me to combine two of my greatest passions, the Human Body and the dynamic relationship with the horses’ Body in Motion…… as we are 2 ‘separate “Meat Suits”, our beautiful myofascial, bipedal bag of organs and intelligence needs to be able to interface elegantly with that of the horse, which is a quadrupedal highly sensitive bio-energetic system.
The work I do aligns effortlessly with RWYM as we explore your own unique language of Body Wisdom and learning to allow this relationship to Self awareness within your scope of riding and life to unfold…….
I use a multitude of tools from my tool kit as we work with Riders: Body bio-mechanical analysis, breath awareness techniques, Muscular assessment and balancing, Fascial release and integration, Physiotherapy, massage/ soft tissue work, Pilates exercises and repertoires, Energetics, Emotional, Mental and Subtle body integration, Fun, Laughter, Love and a Passion for your Journey into greater Riding harmony……………
