Learn to achieve richer communication and trust with your horse through meditation, visualization, asanas and pranayama.
We use the same skill sets when we enter, hold, and leave a yoga asana that we use when we interact with our equine companions. We enter an asana with calm determination, hold the pose with grace and quiet breath, and leave the pose with awareness and thankfulness. The rhythmic poses and yoga breathing exercises help you learn how to breathe in rhythm with movement and enhance your awareness.
The same is true when we ask our horses to perform up and down transitions. When we ask with calm firmness they respond willingly and happily. Horses are noble creatures capable of great physical feats and they generously share that with us if we are open to accepting their gifts. We need only quiet the “noise” in our minds and listen.

Why Yoga & Horses?
A yoga practice prepares us to find that quiet place within each of us and listen for our horses’ invitation to come play.
- Holistic riding creates a deeper connection between body, breath, mind and soul.
- Integrating Yoga into our riding and our time spent with horses enhances awareness, balance and flexibility.
- Breathing in rhythm creates focus and relaxation.
Which leads us towards the goal of union with our horse, the perfect dance, the two becoming one, moving effortlessly in harmony.
