Through the practice of yoga, this seminar helps both the physical and mental aspects of riding through yoga poses (asana), deep breathing and relaxation. Strength without flexibility can lead to stiffness in your body; flexibility without strength can lead to injuries. Yoga postures promote balance between strength and flexibility for a healthier body. Tension in the saddle can come not only from tension in the body, but from tension in the mind caused by fear and anxiety. Breathing exercises calm the nervous system and keep the body relaxed and in a neutral position; as we all know, horses are herd animals and react to the fear and anxiety of their handlers. Keeping a calm mind helps your horse do the same. Horses respond in kind to our attention and our degree of relaxation.

This yoga class will be set at a gentle, beginner’s level with modifications for all levels.

If we greet our horse with stress, the horse feels our stress. Getting in touch with our breath slows us down and gives us a more peaceful approach to the greeting of our horse.

Wear loose comfortable clothing. Bring your yoga mat and water bottle w/lid.
