Riding with a relaxed    psoas-Muscle

The Psoas-Muscle (major hip flexor) is playing an important part for riders since the psoas muscle influences the mobility of the pelvis, lower back and legs.

Out of this reason I use the TRE-Method to release tension in the psoas muscle as well as general tension in the rider's body.

Motion is created in our mind

In order to understand and learn new motion patterns I make use of NLP-techniques and work with inner pictures.

I also use special equipment and exercises on and off the horse to make your learning experience more effective and to improve the rider's coordination, mobility and balance.

Riding is a Dialog of Motion and emotion

Every rider has a story to tell.  Besides storing memories in our brain, our body stores continuously conscious and subconscious experiences in our cells and muscles.  This is how our body becomes a mirror of our biography.  Accidents, stress and traumatic life experiences  can lead to tension and muscular imbalance.  Our ability to allow the horse to move our body might be hindered.

Sitzkunst can help you to become aware of your body pattern and to develop a solution focused way to improve your body posture and riding.

Integrating the Mind

Also our thinking and feeling have great impact on our riding.  Tension, anxiety and ambition can influence our mind and body.  I therefore use psychological methods in teaching to integrate the mind and spirit into the process of learning and to create mindfulness.
