About this pro

My name is Corinne Schindler and I am a Certified Yoga Instructor and Horsemanship trainer in Boulder County. My passion is to provide experiential sessions for the community, through a unique Mindfulness and Yoga on Horseback program. 

 All of the horses on our farm have been rescued and rehabilitated, many of them no longer able to perform at a level they once could. However, they have a forever home here on our farm, providing a unique and safe experience like no other facility.

I have been offering programs to the Boulder County community for over 6 years, focusing on a continuing my own personal education and growth to provide each participant with a quality session.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Our initial session is spent working with the horse to evaluate comfort level, range of motion, and establish a relationship through connection.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have studied Horsemanship for 15 years, including multiple training backgrounds and disciplines. I have professionally worked with therapy programs, special needs clients, at-risk youth, memory loss, grief, and more. I am certified as a PATH Instructor and Yoga Teacher.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

One hour private session is $50, buy a package of 6 sessions for $240. 

Group workshops are $40 per 2-3 hour sessions. 


How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching recreational riding lessons in 2005. I gradually began working with more students who demostrated a need for deeper connection to the horse than traditional riding sessions provided.  It led me down the path of certifications and continuing education to build the necessary skills to provide a safe container for each student.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with able bodied students, students with physical restrictions, cognitive restrictions,  memory loss, grief and loss, as well as students who just want to experience a deeper connection with mature and animals.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In August 2017, I went into the mountains with 16 Women on a Meditation with Horses Retreat. For two days, we spent our time together practicing yoga and meditation, connecting with the horses through Chakra Balancing and Meditation. I had the privilege of witnessing each of the women and the horses coming together to experience a profound, life changing moment. The women walked away from that weekend differently, moved in such a way, I was able to see a shift in their being. It was magical!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would be sure to ask for demonstrations or references. Yoga and Mindfulness with Horses requires a deep, spiritual connection between the facilitator and the horse. The horse must trust the facilitator and the facilitator must demonstrate their own personal relationship with the horse. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What fears might you have of horses? What physical restrictions do you have that might be a factor in a session?
