We believe that mind is body and body is mind and people who live with a bright fire inside them need wholeness of self. This belief guides everything we do at Capriole Coaching whether it's one-on-one life coaching sessions with the horses or group movement classes, both the mind and the body are considered as one whole and they must be healed and grown together.
The way we achieve this is by moving a person from a concrete idea, say physical balance, to more abstract ideas like life balance. The mind and what it focuses on really drives how the body responds, and in turn creates the emotional habits we live by. So we at Capriole Coaching put a lot of energy into the mind and the emotional body. Health is a byproduct of thoughts and those thoughts have the power to move a person in a positive direction on a consistent basis. What you believe matters and we want to support you in being the best you can be.

Goat Energy Movement (GEM)™
Goat medicine includes: abundance - independence - surefootedness - eliminating guilty feelings - seeking new heights.
What a powerful animal energy! Who doesn't need to release guilt and feel surefooted, not only in your body but in your life.
The goats will coach and assist you , through their example, as you rediscover all that your body has to offer. In so doing, help you feel more nourished, connected and loving to yourself.
Get out and learn to move. Remember what it was like to play on the playground? It felt free and natural. You were probably in pretty good shape as a kid but you weren't thinking about calorie burn or cardio or hitting the weights, you were just moving. This group formalizes that playful spirit with useful and practical application. Learn how to move in an adaptable, complex and masterful way and have fun doing it. We've recently moved this group as well as our walking group to Meet-up.
