The Initial Consultation
During the initial consultation you will receive a postural and movement assessment and a spinal alignment check whilst on a ‘wooden horse’. I would ask that we use your own saddle so that you are as comfortable as you can be whilst I do postural corrections. I will explain what a ‘neutral spine’ is and how to work towards achieving it. I will also teach you how and when to ‘activate’ your correct riding muscles. I will explain about the core and its muscles, how they stabilize you and how to use them when riding. You will learn about the 4D breathing technique and how it acts as a tension relief. I may also use other equipment such as a stability ball for further assessment. You will be shown some exercises and given work sheets so that you can practice them on your own. The cost of first consultation session will be £48.00 and it will last around an hour and a half.
After the initial consultation you can carry on with one-to-one sessions where we will be working on helping you to become a better, more balanced and elegant rider. You will become more body aware, strengthen and learn how to activate your core and improve your flexibility. Whatever your goal is this program will be tailored to your needs and abilities. One-to-one sessions are available at £35.00 and usually last from 45 minutes up to 1 hour.
Block Booking Discounts
If you pay for a block of one-to-one sessions a discount is available:
- A 5% discount will apply to a block of 5 sessions, so you would pay £166.25 instead of £175.00
- For a block of 10 sessions booked a 10% discount will apply, which would be £315.00 instead of £350.00, which is in effect 10 sessions for the price of 9!
An initial consultation is always necessary before commencing any exercise program.
