Championing Alberta's Small Business

With a degree in animal behaviour and years of learning the techniques of equine-assisted learning (EAL) under her belt, Dorothy Turek laid the foundation of a now renowned EAL business called 'Centaur Wellness'.
Because the horses' #1 priority in life is to feel safe (not food or water), they require people to step into their own power and become the leader for them both. What makes working with horses more effective in personal and team development is that you can't fool the teachers, unlike human coaches who always have some sort of human bias. Horses don't judge us and react to changes in our intentions and actions immediately which is what leads to our growth.
Dorothy works with individuals and teams providing transformative experiences and helps them clear the inner roadblocks utilizing the natural stress-relieving instinct of horses.
Bullying is one of the most depression-inducing triggers. Centaur Wellness provides anti-bullying EAL workshops, and women empowerment for women who experienced bullying.
EAL sessions also assist people forced to work in uncertain conditions during the pandemic and who were experiencing a great deal of pressure and stress. Centaur Wellness helped them relieve their stress through fun-filled learning sessions.
