Rhythm and Harmony


I am an Ayurvedic practitioner with a passion for supporting people and animals for a healthier and happier life. The happiness of both is often intrinsically linked and whenever possible I love to work with people/horses and dogs together – when all are in physical and emotional balance another level of heartfelt connection is possible.

An important component of health is to feel flexible and enjoy pain-free, easy movement. My bodywork sessions include Masterson Method, Debono Moves and Cranio-Sacral Therapy to create a global change in functional movement. I teach simple techniques and somatic movements to incorporate into your routine to help you and your horse flow and connect in movement.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda means the science of life, a traditional medicine from India that understands the interrelation of all life, nature’s rhythm and cycles and the importance of living in harmony with your unique energetic blueprint.

What is Ayurveda for horses?

An ayurvedic perspective observes your horses’ characteristics through a new lens, relating to the 5 elements: earth, water, fire, air and space. These insights can help you understand their temperament and their health sensitivities. You can recognise early signs of imbalance and counteract potential seasonal challenges adapting routine, training and diet to their individual characteristics. Come to the stand for more info on 1-1 Ayurvedic consultations for your horse’s health.

Amnanda Process

I specialise in Amnanda, a programme of 12 Ayurvedic oil treatments for healing the physical and emotional effects of stress and trauma. The combination of attuned heartfelt touch, herbal oils and mantra triggers a healing cellular response, enabling a different interpretation of adverse experiences and increases positivity, confidence, self-awareness and improves relationships. It is a transformative process and I love sharing the process with people and animals.

I am the only UK trainer for Equine and Canine Amnanda having developed a course for professionals and owners. The course is held over six 2-day blocks and includes learning the Amnanda treatment, developing therapeutic touch and exploring and developing an understanding of horses and dogs and our relationship with them.

Please come to the stand for more info on 1-1 consultations, treatments, combined health packages and courses available. I look forward to meeting you!
