Horse & Wellness 3 days Intensive Retreats

A new and exclusive way of traveling.

HORSEPOWER Balance® offers you Horse & Wellness® a deep experience of anti-aging empowerment. HORSEPOWER Balance® is a powerful three-day holistic treatment assisted by horses, that will make you feel better, both psychologically and physically.

With the guidance of a psychologist equine coach and a nurse specialized in anti-aging and wellness, you will start becoming healthier, mainly by becoming aware of internal barriers to a health and wellness lifestyle and being able to face them.

This experience will promote body and mental health and balance, well-being, self-awareness and self-actualization, addressing complex life issues like health issues, relationship concerns, past trauma or future uncertainty.

Wellness does not mean the same for everyone, for some it means to spend time with loved ones, for others staying healthy and full of energy, for others having the means to get comfort, for others is luxury. However, there is no wellness for anyone without balance, and everyone have to follow a different way to reach their own balance. It is easier to reach balance with some help. Wellness as well, is not something you must achieve on your own. Seeking out professional help will contribute positively to work on your happiness and emotional well-being, and will always benefit your overall wellness.

Horsefulness

Horsefulness will help you to enjoy the present, stop thinking of the past and worrying about the future.

Horsefulness® is an exclusive and highly effective way of paying attention to the current situation, without judgement, assisted by horses. Horsefulness® will help you to enjoy the present, stop thinking of the past and worrying about the future. It will help you to manage unpleasant feelings, thoughts and emotions and achieve spiritual peace. The concept originates in Vipassana, a meditation technique first taught by Buddha, which emphasizes Consciousness and Equanimity as a means of developing Wisdom (through understanding the law of impermanence) and thus eliminating suffering.

Health benefits

Less anxiety and more self-esteem.

  • Cardiac coherence breathing and improved blood pressure: Beyond the heart’s vital function as the organ that pumps life-giving oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood throughout our bodies, evidence shows the heart also plays a greater role in our mental, emotional and physical processes, the heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. And even more impressive, the heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain.
  • The cardiac coherenceis a rhythmic or a coherent heart rate variability (HRV) that balances the nervous system (associated with stress) and emotional state. When individuals are in the coherent state, they are more sensitive to receiving information contained in the magnetic fields generated by others. In addition, during physiological coherence, internal systems are more stable, function more efficiently and radiate electromagnetic fields containing a more coherent structure.  In a coherent state, virtually no energy is wasted because our systems are performing optimally and there is synchronization between heart rhythms, the respiratory system, blood-pressure rhythms, etc.
  • Reduced anxiety and improved focus: Many people who struggle with anxiety find themselves stuck in worry about their past and fearful about their future. “Horsefulness®” gives the chance to stay present and focused. Getting out of their comfort zone and processing challenges through the behavior of the horse, can be easier for clients than speaking directly about their own personal experiences with anxiety.
  • Increase in self-esteem and self-respect: Horses will connect with you in a playful and honest way, helping you to clarify your own intentions, reactions, emotions and behaviors, fostering transformation and positive changes that will contribute to build self-esteem, trust, confidence and respect to your body, your mind and your life. Harness the help of horses to guide your path to positive life changes that will lead you to increase your wellbeing.

Heartbroken Healing Retreat

Are you struggling with a broken heart, depression, loneliness, anxiety or grief?

Are you suffering the effects of a broken heart? Do you feel hopeless, desperate, lost, aimlessly, not wanting to live? It’s normal. In countries as Germany you would get medical leave because of “Liebeskummer”, what means suffering of “Kummer” (grief, sorrow, pain, hurt, depression, anguish) because of “Liebe” (love) and refers to the state of mind of people whose love life is not going well, especially the sorrow felt by jilted lovers. And rightly so, it is a subject that must be taken very seriously, as this mood state can very negatively affect health in general, and it can even destroy the lives of those who suffer it. Takotsubo’s syndrome, or broken heart syndrome, can lead to death, which in most cases is misdiagnosed, and the cause is wrongly attributed to a heart attack. It is a condition triggered by emotional stress, such as a separation or the death of a partner, which affects the heart muscle causing the same signs of a heart attack.

Everyone deserves to be happy and enjoy a full life with health and well-being. There is no better time than now to invest in you. Investing the necessary time and with the right help, it is always possible to recover the reins of your life.

HORSEPOWER Balance® offers you the Broken Heart Healing Retreat, a powerful three-day holistic treatment assisted by horses. The Broken Heart Healing Retreat is a deep experience of strengthening the heart, body and mind that will help you to find your inner balance and to make you feel better, both psychologically and physically.

Coaching with horses will help you to forgive and to forgive you, to accept reality and don’t feel guilty. You will learn to allow things to flow freely. Once you stop trying to control, stop, avoid, or manipulate external things, you will start feeling more confident to face reality as it is. Give yourself the chance to build the best version of you, investing in your personal development and achieving a better body and mind balance.

With the valuable help of horses and the guidance of our team, we will provide you with the necessary tools to be able to recover your inner strength, decide what you want and what you don’t want in your life, and define your new path full of confidence and determination. At all times we will count on the company and the help of a nurse specialized in health and well-being, who will guide you to improve the quality of your sleep, will take care of offering you a specific diet to purify your body, will advise you on the most recommended physical exercises for each case, and will monitor various health indicators to track the evolution of your health and well-being, thus ensuring an effective, safe and complete recovery.
