“Yoga in Harmony with Horses” Retreats
Heal your body, mind & soul through the way of the Horse.
These very specialized retreats focus on being in the moment. Which is what horses know perfectly how to do. Through guided meditations and asanas we learn how to breathe with the horse and become aware of our surroundings and our bodies. By lowering the high energy into a quiet harmonious one, we higher the vibration in our body. Our cells feel this and in turn the healing process begins. Dis-ease starts in our soul. Stress, worry, fear and anxiety tire the soul, and we feel lost, lonely, sad, without hope.
The horse guides us to feel deeper inside, of who we are, where we are and how we should be, to find peace & joy.
“We live in a time of necessary healing of the relationships we share with each other, the earth & all living things.”
From “Yoga for Equestrians” This couldn’t be truer.
Why Yoga with horses? –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, leading towards the goal of Union with our horse, the perfect dance, the two becoming ONE, moving effortlessly in harmony.
With our “Yoga in Harmony with Horses” Retreats we hope to show you, whether you are a beginner in Yoga and/or riding or have experience in both, ways to develop your consciousness to create positive changes in your life. Through meditation, visualization, asanas ( a group of rhythmic poses) to learn how to breathe in rhythm with movement and pranayama (yoga breathing exercises) that teach awareness & control of breath, you can achieve a richer communication & trust with your horse.
Breathing skills are not only essential for equestrians but for everyone, practicing these techniques with horses helps us to centre & focus, the horse acts as a mirror to our emotions and inner self, and when we relax & become still mind & body, the horse feels this immediately and you will see how they in turn relax, chew and choose to be closer to you. They love & enjoy being around people who can be like this, living and being in the moment, no clutter, no negative energies, quiet, stillness, the altered state. As our mind finds peace, our bodies are energized & restored, becoming healthy & vibrant. From dis-ease in the body becomes ease & well-being. Wholeness.
