'Imagining success, we are riding the tip 
of the arrow for all humanity. 
Not only do we lead our own life in an 
uplifted way but we also uplift the lives of others. 
This is windhorse — inherent trust in the 
fundamental goodness of what’s happening.' 
~ Sakyong Mipham

                                                                                                            
Welcome to WindHorse Coaching! 


My name is Katja Elk. I am a life coach, horse trainer, soul searcher, writer, 
and an embracer of change. In parts of Eastern cultures, where horses are integral to life, the human spirit is known as windhorse, and raising his energy is seen as a way to stay in balanced harmony with the world. 

As someone who has spent a lot of time working with both horses and humans, 
it is my pleasure  and my mission to help you raise your windhorse, to become  conscious of yourself as an energetically powerful being so you can find your calling, stay your course through the ups and downs of your journey and live  your most joyful life. 

You may think, "Yes, that all sounds great, I want all these things, but I need 
to deal with my 'real life issues' first."

"What about the headache the situation at work with my 
boss/co-worker/employee is giving me?"

"What about the draining issues I have with my partner/spouse/kids/friends/relatives?"

"What about feeling mentally side-swiped while trying to 
stay centered in emotionally loaded situations anywhere?"

"What about this nagging feeling inside of me that tells me something needs to change — but it's just too scary, too hard to do on my own or impossible to believe that it could happen..."

Or, now that you're entering the 'second act' of your life, your kids may have left the house, your professional path may have peaked, retirement may not be all that you hoped it would be — what about the notion that this was it, that this may have been as good as it gets?

The truth is that there will need to be space, time and openness on the inside before any of us can successfully create change on the outside.

So take a deep breath and give yourself a chance to create a shift toward real change. Take some time and some space for yourself. Learn how to quiet your mind. Learn how to deal with your 'real life issues' with much more clarity and peace of mind.

I'€™m here to help you dissolve thought patterns that no longer serve you, face obstacles and navigate challenges that may seem to keep you from feeling fully alive. I'€™m here to help you uncover your own hidden treasures, become present and find your peace with What Is. 

Horses are great catalysts for change. They are a living metaphor for life and how we deal with it. They can show you how to be in touch with the precious, energetic being you are, how to express your needs, how to set healthy boundaries, how to nurture your natural gifts and how to maintain relationships with confidence, integrity, kindness and compassion.

With or without horses, I can help you on your journey to becoming the happier, more balanced and truly alive person you are meant to be. 

Sign up and make the first step toward your most wildly improbable, deliciously possible, best life ever! :)
