Nancy Horenburg is an artist in the mediums of watercolour and clay sculpture. She has provided illustrations for a set of books for UNICEF and Seventh Day Adventist (Prevention and Mitigation of HIV and AIDS), illustrated Michael Roads children’s book ‘Sago, The Caterpillar Who Wanted to Fly’, (available on Amazon.com) and is currently illustrating his second book, as well as a poem book of Linda Tellington-Jones.
She is also a martial artist for more than 20 years in the art of Karate, and in other arts such as Gong fu, Taijiquan, Jujitsu and Capoeira. The martial arts philosophy on health, fitness, character development and body, mind, spirit harmony has inspired her in her life, and it has greatly contributed to her work as a martial art and fitness instructor, artist, sculptor, illustrator, food creator and also in all areas of her life.
Caring also for animals and their wellbeing, Nancy is a guild-certified Tellington Touch Practitioner. The Tellington TTouch Method is a unique approach to the care and training of our animal companions. An inspirational method of improving your animal’s health, behaviour, performance and well being that provides solid, practical solutions for challenges common among dogs, cats and other animals.
Community work is also part of her life. Since January 2005, Nancy has been the educator for Partners in Botho Project (an NGO founded by Nancy and Françoise Horenburg) for the children of Mokatse/Modipane villages where Nancy is living. Twice a week, Nancy gives two hours of her time. For the first hour, the kids are free to play with whatever toys and games are on hand: footballs, tennis, puzzles, skipping ropes, badminton, ping pong, paper and colouring pencils and colouring books, reading books, etc. For the next hour, the class is formal, with the kids learning anything from martial arts such as Karate, Kung fu and Capoeira, to yoga, Capacitar, art and crafts, singing, dancing, and music. Other activities happen over a Saturday morning or over the once or twice a year Camp. There they learn the above activities and also life skills, cooking, and other types of games and potential development activities.
Françoise has been in the holistic health field for more than 50 years. Her passion for caring for the wellbeing of other people and the earth fuels her work and contributes to her ever growing thirst to learn more and share more in all areas of holistic health and earth wisdom.
Françoise has been professionally active, since 1965, as a self-employed therapist in the fields of Human Potential Development and a wholistic approach to health care and prevention. She uses modalities such as counselling, nutrition, therapeutic massages, bioesthetique (bio-aesthetician), bodywork, Yoga, and Capacitar.
Her motto is “prevention is better than cure”. Respect and care of the environment has also always been an intrinsic part of her life, and which greatly influences her practice of health care and her own lifestyle.
