  • Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) 

    EAL is a powerful self-development modality that enables individuals to strengthen key life skills including communication, empathy, emotional regulation, leadership and teamwork in partnership with horses.  EAL builds on connection, trust and relationships with horses to empower and develop authentic relationships within ourselves and those around us.  The horses are our partners in the process of self-discovery.  Includes horse grooming.

  • Breath Work & Meditation

    Inspired by the life transforming practices that embody the Wisdom of the Horse, it provides a framework in which we are able to reconnect with our true nature and purpose, through divine wisdom and scientifically backed techniques that harness the collective power of our conscious, subconscious and superconscious intelligence.

  • Rythym2Recovery Drumming & Laughing Yoga

    Therapeutic program that utilises fun and engaging rhythmic music, movement and voice to support social and emotional development.  Based on the latest neuroscience.  Assists with supporting increased emotional regulation, improved social connection and reduced levels of anxiety. Attendees learn how better to negotiate their way through life's many challenges, whilst maintaining hope for a brighter future.

  • Sound Bath

    A sound bath is a type of meditative practice that involves immersing yourself in tones and vibrations of instruments like singing bowls. The vibrations and frequencies of the sounds can help to induce a deep state of relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote physical and emotional healing.
