    Ride Well with Kathlyn Hossack

    Ride Well with Kathlyn Hossack

    In episode 140 of the Rider's Mind Podcast we have a special guest Kathlyn Hossack with RideWell Performance, Kathlyn has been helping me with my own riding and it's opened a lot of doors to discovery and awareness within my own body and we have her here today to help explain some of that and what's been creating the results from the inside out. We talk about the nervous system, we talk about somatics, the female cycle, how it impacts your riding. Kathlyn brings a lot of experience from a lot of different areas of expertise that I think will lend itself well to our understanding of our body and how it impacts our riding.

    You can learn more about Kathlyn and the Ridewell Method on her website https://www.ridewellperformance.ca/ find her on Instagram and Facebook at @ridewellperformance

    Forcing vs. Flow

    Forcing vs. Flow

    Today I talk about how forcing things, trying to make things happen, trying to control situations is really something that we could benefit from getting away from. We see that in our rides and runs that any time we try to make a horse do something that doesn't work out for us. Whenever we try to control an outcome, whether it's in a relationship or in business, we usually learn lessons around that. So let's talk about this particular lesson today about how, when we force things, trying to make things happen generally doesn't turn out that well for us (and what to do instead).

    Growing Pains

    Growing Pains

    Those of us on a personal growth journey, a journey to a more mindful life, to better health and wellness know it’s not an easy road. There is work that needs to be done and it does not always feel easy. Sometimes we may end up questioning why we're doing this. It was just easier to live in our heads. Ignorance was bliss. It was easier to not know, and this journey of self growth can come with its challenges. It comes with its hills, it comes with its valleys, and I want to talk about those valleys today. And hopefully, if you are in a valley, this will give you some inspiration, to have some grace with yourself and to have patience as you work through and you wait for your opportunity to take action when the time is right to move to the next level.

    Your Nerves Are Not The Enemy

    Your Nerves Are Not The Enemy

    So often we think of our nerves, our nervousness, as something super negative and something that we don't want to have. But I really want to shift your perspective on this and have you recognize that your nervous system is working for you. Once you get to know it a little better, to know how to massage this energy into something that is going to serve you well and help you achieve your ideal performance state. I think you’ll see how your nerves are not your enemy, but an energy to work with as an ally.

A Gift

Anyone can benefit from Michelle’s teachings and information but I love that it is geared to riders. So many aha moments listening, usually on my early morning rides. There are days when it truly feels like the universe is delivering exactly what I needed to hear in that moment through Michelle. Thanks for sharing with us all.
