With an online Feldenkrais® session, I can help you make this dream a reality. Click the button below to schedule your session. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.I WANT TO IMPROVE MY RIDING
Learn how your unique movement patterns create tension and restriction
I'll create Feldenkrais® exercises tailored for your specific needs
You'll get the video recording of your session so you can keep on improving!
Equestrian activities should be enjoyable for horse and human. If you're feeling frustrated, anxious, sore or unbalanced, that's not fun for you OR your horse!
Many riders are proud of their ability to tolerate pain. But ignoring or trying to "muscle through" your problems can lead to damaged joints, increased pain, stiffness, premature aging and other undesirable effects.
Not to mention the toll it takes on your HORSE'S soundness and psyche too!
And while an online session isn't a one-and-done thing, you'll get a solid introduction to approaching physical and emotional harmony with your horse.
You'll learn how to make your movements lighter and easier, improving communication with your horse. Which deepens your connection. And can make riding healthy and fun for you AND your horse.
I hope you join me for an online session soon. Don't delay. Your horse is counting on you.SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION
"Thank you for the wonderful online session. I loved how you helped me see how I was holding myself back. Now I know how to move more elegantly and freely. I'm glad to have the recorded session to refresh my memory. This is really great!"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful online session yesterday! As soon as I stood up I felt such a difference, taller, looser, much better balanced. .. my lower right ribs and pelvis were much more moveable at the end, wonderful again. I am now off outside to set up a ‘pelvic clock’ for the horses. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing so much to those of us who can’t come to your clinics."
"Since doing your Feldenkrais exercises, I've been able to follow my horse's movement. Went for a ride today with stirrups usual length - I was sitting differently in the saddle. I was more upright and followed my horse's movement better. The exercises you taught me feel so good, they're addictive!"
"I would like to congratulate you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful way of conveying body intelligence! ... I knew that I had been sitting on the horse unbalanced for many years. Now everything is different. That may sound cheesy, but it is so... With the finest aids (and now they are really aids and not disabilities) I can ride my horse, even on the long reins, and navigate precisely. And I also have the impression that I am much better connected to the horse. "
"I can sink into my left seat bone easily and without any effort now! I usually sit heavier on the right and really don't feel the left one. And it feels like my trunk is just floating over my pelvis. My seat feels secure and I can move my hips more easily. I can bend to each side easily too. My back feels so good. I feel as light as a feather! So free and loose! Thank you, Mary! "

I'm so confident that you'll feel an improvement from our time together that I personally guarantee it. Your money will be cheerfully refunded in the unlikely event that you're not satisfied.SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION
An international clinician, I've been helping improve the movement, performance and well-being of equestrians for almost 30 years.
Efficient movement improves athletic performance, reduces the risk of injury, speeds recovery, minimizes the challenges of aging and reduces stiffness, aches and pains, stress and anxiety.
I'd love to help YOU move freely and confidently too. Click the button below to schedule your session. Let's do this!SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION
It's EASY to benefit from an online session! If your question isn't listed, email [email protected]
Absolutely. I've helped dressage, hunter/jumper, Western and Australian stock riders.
My clients range from pleasure trail riders to World Cup show jumping and Grand Prix dressage competitors.
Since Feldenkrais® exercises are gentle and effective, riders of ALL fitness levels and ages can benefit.
I've helped a large number of senior citizens, many of them recovering from severe injuries, ride with ease and balance.
Yes! Riders of all abilities, from tech-savvy to non-techy, have easily connected with me online.
It's simple - and FREE - to download the Zoom software that we'll use. I'll send you detailed instructions to make it super easy for you.
During your online session, you'll have your webcam on, so we'll be able to see each other. That allows me to lead you through personalized Feldenkrais® exercises to address your unique challenges.
We'll meet for about an hour.
It's helpful, but not essential. If you send in a video, it needs to be only a few minutes long.
If possible, have video taken from all directions: riding your horse toward the camera, away from the camera and from the left and right sides.
Have video at the walk. You can also include trotting, cantering, jumping and any other activity that is appropriate.
A session is $147 USD. That includes your session recording and a week of personal email support from me.
That's a great question! And there's no one-size-fits-all answer.
In our session, you'll be developing self-awareness. When you bring that mindfulness to your everyday life, your results will often "stick" better.
If you simply return to your everyday routine and repeatedly slouch over your phone or computer, slump inattentively on the sofa and do a myriad other things that create havoc in your body and mind, your improvements may not last as long.
I'm committed to empowering you, so I WANT your improvements to last.
I'll be happy to go over how to help your improvements "stick" when we have our session.
Yes. I'm committed to your improvement, so I include a week of personal email support with each session.
Yes! I'm so confident that you'll feel an improvement in your movement or comfort, that I personally guarantee it.
In the unlikely event that you don't feel an improvement, I'll cheerfully refund your investment.
It's 100% risk-free.
You're so thoughtful! Gift certificates make GREAT gifts.
Email [email protected] and put "gift certificate for online session" in the subject line. We'll send you a purchase link and you'll be able to print out a handsome gift certificate.
