YOGA FOR EQUESTRIANS

A Practice for Your Half of the Partnership

"Make your horse happy by

knowing and controlling your own body better." 

~Sally Swift, Centered Riding

 

True connection with our equine partners is only possible when we first get centered and present in ourselves.  Through direct experience in our own bodies, we better understand our horses and collaborate with them for mutually rewarding partnership.   

 

  Horses sense and mirror what’s happening in us - things we are often not even aware of.  Unconscious patterns in our own bodies and minds are often at the root of imbalances and misunderstandings in our partnership with them.   Yoga practice helps us gain awareness and control of our bodies and minds, and develop inner stillness and intuition for a clearer line of communication.  Additionally, as we learn to use our bodies consciously, we model for the horse how to use his body with greater comfort and ease.  Both partners benefit and experience greater harmony and congruency together.

 

 

 

 

 

Body benefits:  Improves alignment, symmetry, balance, range of motion, strength, self-carriage, precision, and self-control. 

Releases restrictive postural and movement patterns.  Creates new muscle memory. 

Regulates your nervous system, which communicates directly to your horse’s nervous system.

Mind benefits:   Decreases stress.  Improves focus.  Helps you feel calmer, more present, and patient.  

Increases intuition, awareness, empathy and interspecies understanding.

 

 

 

 

An attitude of self-honoring is emphasized in all classes and private sessions. 

As we practice the art of "right relationship" with our own body/mind,

we carry this understanding into our relationship with others - horse and human alike.
