Mary Ann’s career path over the past few decades has focused on healing, whether it is land, horses or humans. She is currently a Registered Practitioner of Human and Equine Ortho-Bionomy®, and a Certified Equine Positional Release Instructor and Practitioner.
Mary Ann has spent over a decade studying and practicing in these fields and similar bodywork modalities, which are non-invasive and geared towards stimulating the body’s self-healing abilities. Her studies were initially driven by a desire to help her own horses with physical, health and emotional issues where traditional medicine could not find a solution. She bases her equine and human practice, Primo Motion Bodywork, near Espanola, New Mexico.
A passionate student of the natural sciences, Mary Ann’s studies have also included undergraduate and graduate degrees in Soil Science, and she spent many years managing programs dedicated to improving the quality of our land and water resources. In these positions she honed her ability to build teams and to listen and understand points of view without judgement; skills which have been invaluable in her life and practice.
“If we are willing to listen and work with the nature of the horse, old patterns can begin to shift and the possibilities for change become endless.”
A life goal of Mary Ann’s is to help benefit horse-human relationships. Her equine sessions and workshops are geared toward ensuring the horse feels safe, the horse/human interaction is safe and comfortable, the nature of the horse is honored, and the human can recognize the need for changes that can benefit both the horse and themselves. Mary Ann’s work with the EQUSS Herd continues to inspire and influence this goal.
