What do I Bring?
For this type of session wear loose and comfortable clothing. I may ask you to move or move you passively. You should feel comfortable at all times. The intention of the lesson is to inform your nervous system about easy movement in many combinations. The results can range from an overall feeling of well-being to a precise improvement of motor control. In this way people have regained skills that have been lost through injury, aging or stroke (for example) often with reduced pain, stress and reduced tendency for re-injury.

After our last session I felt very loose and a little giddy. Actually, through the evening I felt more and more giddy until after dinner. It was quite a pleasant experience! When I rode, I was able to use my right side considerably more than previously. SC Dressage Rider
