Anke’s path to consulting and health coaching began with her personal struggles with a debilitating digestive disease in the early 1990’s, when she began to study the effects of diet, environment, exercise, and attitude on one’s overall vitality and well-being.
Now she is an athlete in top form, a certified Professional Health and Life Coach, a Peggy Cummings Certified Practitioner, AFAA certified fitness trainer, certified Nutritional Consultant, and Reiki Master Practitioner. She is devoted to helping her clients realize how productive they can be and how empowered, motivated and terrific they can feel once they take charge of their health and life.
As a lifelong rider since the age of 8, Anke understands how the challenges of horsemanship and the challenges of life interweave. Having experienced firsthand how a strong, healthy body free of tension contributes to being free of injury, elimination of chronic pain, coordination, balance, posture, carriage, and an independent seat, she is uniquely qualified to coach other riders toward their goals, in and out of the saddle. With Anke’s help, equestrians gain the self-knowledge, confidence and body awareness they need to get them closer to that perfect ride; in and out of the saddle.
Anke’s passion is helping others succeed, and she enjoys watching the joy and confidence grow from both horse and rider by using the combination of Confidence/Life/Health Coaching, Connected Groundwork and Riding®, and intuition, helping equestrians reach their goal is a natural fit for Anke Johnson’s passion, skills, and temperament. She’d rather be laughing on the trails and arena with her Morgan horse Guinness, than just about anywhere else.
