Feel the benefits that come from practicing established techniques to reduce stress, re-energize, engage your senses and connect with the natural world around you. This class is for anyone who is interested in overall health and wellness, looking for ways to manage the stress of daily life, or seeking relief from anxiety or depression. Research has shown that interacting with animals can decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone), lower blood pressure and help people manage their long-term mental health conditions.

Glade Run Adventures incorporates the natural environment and relationships with horses and other animals in the healing and growth process.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy), an evidence-based trauma therapy, may also be included.
