We've got a few stories to help you decide...

Cody used the Foundations Course to learn the fundamentals...

Cody is a life coach who lives in the city with no access to horses. He had no experience whatsoever with horses or Natural Lifemanship, but was seeking new ways to better his practice and connect with his clients. The Foundations course provided exposure to NL concepts and teachings, and Cody found himself immersed in an online learning environment that changed the way he interacted with himself, clients, and people in the world.

Jane used the Core Course to find a new approach...

Jane used the Core Course to find a new approach to helping trauma victims heal. As a mental health therapist, she felt something was missing in her approach and wanted to deepen her connection with her clients and herself as well. Jane also wanted to learn to partner people with horses in her practice. Because Jane has access to horses and needed personalized training, she knew Core training from Natural Lifemanship was the right program to enrich her work. She is now NL Trained and got the chance to see if it was the right program for her before she got certified. Jane learned how to change her personal and professional approach to trauma and stress

Breanna used the Jumpstart Course to gain confidence in the work she does...

Breanna started working at an equine-assisted psychotherapy practice and soon found out she needed to learn more. Natural Lifemanship’s Jumpstart option allowed her to double-dip towards certification and get one-on-one support through zoom consultations to gain confidence in her new role. The best part was she didn’t have to sacrifice precious family time to do it.

Q: How manageable is the coursework in the online format?

We are committed to providing you with an accessible and convenient training experience. Virtual learnings are cutting-edge training opportunities that are simple and concise, even for first-timers.

The online class setting is designed for easy navigation through a click, watch and response technique after each video. You will upload your practice videos using sources like Youtube or Google Drive and then paste the link to your video in the online classroom forum. Technical support is available for those moments when you need a bit more guidance.



Q: How does virtual learning differ from in-person training?

Cost-effectiveness is an essential part of our mission in building a legacy of connection through our virtual training. Save yourself a plane ticket, hotel room and racked up food bills by taking us up on the virtual classroom.

The journey through the Virtual Fundamentals training is a structured, semi self-paced course, with enough structure to help you get through the process at a flexible yet efficient rate accompanied by our personal support.

During this 8 week immersion of growth, you get to connect with horses, practice coursework, and spend time with trainers at your convenience. The virtual world becomes your oyster and we're here to guide and support you while learning how to heal yourself and others.



Q: Why is it important to move forward with this NOW (virtually) rather than waiting until you can do it in person?

The virtual experience offers enhanced flexibility so you control the pace of your learning journey while becoming a driving force for change. You have the opportunity to build strong connections and get valuable feedback from home.
