I have taken numerous Body Worker Mentor Clinics with Tina and absolutely love them!
Tina is a very knowledgable practitioner and teacher, she easily adapts to various education levels and is very easy to talk to. Regardless of her students background she treats everyone equally and as a fellow therapist.
Tina is very encouraging and supportive, and has (continues) to help me be a more effective therapist.
I am proud to call Tina a friend and mentor. I strongly recommend her courses whether you are a Body Worker or horse enthusiast~ you will be pleasantly surprised by how much you can learn about your equine friend in one clinic!
Thalia Edwards - TE Sports Therapy
I have been fortunate enough to attend a few of Tina's body work clinics and have been extremely impressed with the content and how the clinic is addressed. Tina has a wealth of knowledge any practitioner would be jealous of and the fact that she makes it a point to keep learning tells you the content and discussions throughout the day are very informative. Tina's positive and cheerful attitude wears off on the group she is with. I would highly recommend any clinic that Tina offers. Whether you are just wanting to learn more about your own horse or are an equine practitioner looking at adding valuable information and techniques to your practice you will not be disappointed by the in-class and hands-on experience.

Tina has an enormous passion for teaching. I have had the privilege of being able to TA for her on many occasions and am always amazed at her ability to connect with the participants and hold their interest.
Her upbeat and positive attitude projects onto the people attending her clinics and fires a passion in them to learn.
She has an enormous wealth of knowledge and is always striving to learn more to benefit the animals she cares for and the students she is teaching.

Teaching is one of the most complicated jobs out there today. It requires knowledge of a broad subject matter, a caring attitude, a love of learning, classroom management, enthusiasm and of course the desire to make a difference in the lives of students. Tina Watkins brings all of these aspects to the table- whether she is teaching a 10-day course or a 1-hour lecture! Her 20+ year experience in the industry brings upon a real-life approach to learning. If you are interested in learning more about equine or canine bodywork I would highly and genuinely recommend Tina

In the equine industry, you mention Tina Watkins name there is nothing but greatness that follows suit. Not only is she one of the most charismatic people I know, but her skills and passion for what she does is indescribable. I strongly believe that any person involved within the equine world should get a chance to meet Tina at least one time. I have known Tina even before my body working career, over 10 years ago I got the opportunity to meet her when I working with Dr Chad Hewlett. Her passion and drive to help equine athletes fed my passion to follow in those footsteps. I know that what ever course Tina is teaching, or any course we take together is going to be mind blowing. Her understand of anatomy and physiology, her compassion and emotional understanding of the animal gives me goosebumps. As my all time favourite mentor, I believe that Tina doesn't even realize how much she knows. I learn more and more from her every time I am around her, when she talks I am all ears. If she is working on your horse, your horse is receiving the best of the best care possible. So much love and respect of this woman, always learning so I have something to strive towards for my careers future!
I have been fortunate to be associated with Tina Watkins first as a body worker instructor, then as a client and today as a mentor as I progress as a body worker. As an instructor Tina is a passionate and knowledgeable instructor who makes learning fun as well as productive. As a body worker practitioner her expertise and desire to help our horses achieve a pain free existence shows a dedication to her craft and a desire to do what is best for the horse. Tina’s ability to evaluate where our horses needed help was indicative of somebody who had experience and a depth of knowledge. As a mentor Tina has become a wealth of information and an encouraging cheer leader teaching me how to become better at an exciting and fulfilling new career.
I've done several courses now with Tina and every time I leave the course I'm blown away by her wealth of knowledge! Not only does she have a great deal of knowledge and passion for the equine industry but she truly wants everyone else to succeed and share in the passion that she has. She teaches in a way that caters to all learning types, she's patient, caring, and enthusiastic. I feel very lucky to have met Tina and gotten to know her, both as an instructor and as a person. Tina truly is one of a kind!!
