Horses are sensitive and intelligent animals that sense our emotional state even when we are not aware of it. In Upper Caboolture, EquiTune is inviting our community to put their health and wellness first with the support of their beautiful horses. From Yoga Nidra with horses, Equine Facilitated Wellness and Bitless Horse Riding - there is something for all ages.
Equine Facilitated Wellness Recommended by health professionals, equine facilitated wellness is a practical experiential approach to counselling, which does not include horse riding. 90% of language is non-verbal and the horses are mirrors to what we are feeling inside, even if we aren't fully aware of them. Success has been achieved by supporting those that are stressed, depressed, anxious, have eating disorders, ADHD, PTSD, suffered from abuse and so much more. Our horses don't judge, fix or teach but support you on your journey.
Yoga Nidra with Horses
Induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness whilst soaking up the calming horse herd energy. Also known as yogic sleep, Yoga Nidra is an evidence-based practice that has proven benefits for people undergoing PTSD, depression, insomnia, hostility, psychosomatic diseases, chronic pain, anxiety, stress-related disorders and chemical dependency as well as for the establishment of joy, resilience and a sense of well-being in daily life. People with years of meditation and yoga experience have found a new level of connection, openness and peace through being with horses during their practice.
Bitless Horse Riding All works starts on the ground to build a connection between the horse and the rider within a safe environment and providing a more natural way of riding a horse. 10-week courses are available working with the schoolmaster horses to cover the foundations to becoming a well-rounded horse person.
