Gentle heart, wild soul is a journey into your own essence of who you are and will take you through different practises into this vibrant place within where you feel alive and connected to your inner power and inspiration. It is also about learning how to communicate with horses and how you can relate to a horse with sensitivity, respect and clarity, becoming a trustworthy leader. You will discover how to read their body language and how to understand what it is telling you. It is about partnership and real communication rather then domination.
Since childhood, Maya has been fascinated by animals. Today she sees herself as a mediator in the symbiotic relationship that can exist between animals and humans. She believes that the relationship between animal and human can nurture a deep connection with all living beings.
Maya has been riding horses since her early teens, and has participated successfully in jumping and crosscountry competitions. She enjoys nothing better than a good challenge and as a result has always made a point of choosing diffficult horses to ride. Conventionel riding schools couldn’t provide her with enough of these challenges, prompting her to visit America, where she studied how to work with horses and learned about their psychology. Coupled with her education as a coach she has incorporated all of her understanding about the special realationship that has existed for thousands of years between horse and man. Maya feels a genuine uplifting gratitude for what she has learned and enjoys to share her insights. She loves to interact with horses, Liberty-work and Circus-lessons are her favorite forms for this special relationship.
Maya feels that one’s inner attitude is very important in life. Frrom her own experience she has learned, how our thoughts and goals can bring about the realization of our heart’s desire.
Liebst Du den Tanz?
Das Pferd ist ein Tänzer an Deiner Hand: ein Tänzer in die Unendlichkeit.
Aus dem Schwung, den Du ihm mitteilst, folgt die Leichtigkeit, folgt das Schweben.
Alle Kraft fühlst Du sich unter Deinem Sattel vereinigen.
Das Land bleibt hinter dir zurück. Die Welt fließt an Dir vorbei.
Dein Tänzer trägt Dich davon.
(Rudolf G. Binding)
Do you love the dance?
The horse is a dancer at your hand:
A dancer into infinity
Out of the swing you are communicating to him
You feel how all the power is gathering under the saddle.
The land stays behind,
The world is flowing by,
Your dancer is carrying you away.
(Rudolf G. Binding)
