Moving Into Oneness
Evolution of Consciousness through Partnership with the Horse
Bryony Anderson Pullin, LMT, CYT
Bryony is a Nationally Certified Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Yoga Teacher, with a dual practice for both humans and horses. A lifelong equestrian, Bryony has had a deep love of horses since childhood. Her involvement with equine rehabilitation and training over the past 30 years lead to her dual career in therapeutic bodywork for both horse and human, and specialization in teaching yoga for equestrians. Working with horses~ who are extremely sensitive, honest, and authentic~ helped develop Bryony's sensitivity to subtle energies and skills which transferred to her human bodywork practice as well.
Bryony is grateful to her very sensitive horse, Marcondaia (Marco), who helped her to recognize the interrelatedness of her yoga practice, riding, and bodywork. He was a wonderful teacher for their 11 years together. Witnessing the way Marco responded to and mirrored her internal body patterns and thoughts, Bryony was inspired to begin developing her Yoga for Equestrians work in 2000.
Recognizing the way our bodies and minds affect these sensitive beings, Bryony helps clients cultivate greater awareness, understanding, and compassion in their relationships with their horses. Additionally, Bryony appreciates the powerful and beautiful life lessons our horses are reflecting for us all the time, if we are but willing and open enough to receive them. She sees horses as links to our higher Self and to Source ~ unfailingly authentic, aligned with Truth, simultaneously individual and integrated with the whole. Coming into relationship with the horse, we experience directly the natural laws of Life and learn how to better navigate our own lives with grace, ease, and flow.
Bryony is passionate about health and wellness on all levels~ body, mind, and spirit ~ for ourselves and for all beings. She has immersed herself in studies of holistic health and healing for over 35 years, since she first began practicing yoga at the age of 15.
Her training in human work has included two Yoga Teacher Trainings and ongoing advanced teacher trainings (predominantly Iyengar and Kripalu style), Massage and Hydrotherapy, 500 hour Practitioner training through the Society of Ortho-Bionomy® International, CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki and Distance healing, Polarity Therapy, Matrix Energetics, Shiatsu/acupressure, Touch for Health, meditation, nutrition and detoxification, Macrobiotics, Ayurveda, Flower essences, Metaphysics, Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Kinesiology.
Bryony's training in equine work has included Equine massage, Equine Positional Release through both the Equine Positional Release Institute and Society of Ortho-Bionomy International; TTouch; equine biomechanics and rehabilitative movement therapy, including studies through Science of Motion (Jean Luc Cornille); a full dissection equine anatomy course taught by Dr. Deb Bennett, PhD; equine nutrition, classical dressage, natural horsemanship, trauma rehabilitation, and re-schooling ex-racehorses for new careers.
Bryony is committed to never-ending personal and professional growth. Aside from classroom training, Bryony is a student of Life. She loves to learn and is committed to never-ending personal and professional growth, regularly attending continuing education courses to further deepen and refine her knowledge and skills.
In addition to her yoga teaching and dual practice in human and equine bodywork, Bryony is a published author. She wrote Yoga for Equestrians articles for Florida Sporthorse Magazine for several years.
Through her work, Bryony hopes to bring greater understanding and improved relationships between people and their horses, and assist both in experiencing optimum well-being.
