Where ever you find the foot print of the human being in the sand, you find the foot prints of the horse walking next to him

EQUI-YOGA

 

Horses have carried us through history and have been our partners along the way. It's only natural that they accompany us in our journey of self discovery. Equi-Yoga borrows asanas (poses) and breathing techniques from yoga and translates them into the saddle. You begin this program on the mat creating a foundation of breath and learning the asanas. As you move to the saddle our horses stand patiently, often breathing and stretching with you, as you begin to find a flow. When you are ready to advance, the horse walks out on a lounge line as you match your rhythm with the animal. This unique technique highlights many trouble areas, such as the neck, shoulders, arms, seat, and legs. It brings awareness to your balance and strength, essentially because your mat is moving to its own pace. By adding the equine element to yoga the equestrian will learn to adjust to new situations with breath and supplenss, reevaluate the body cues to keep clear communication, and build a deeper connection to your horse. This discovery can be utilized to enhance your riding and your yoga practice. "It helps you explore your body from the inside out, " explains Marty Whittle, founder of Equi-Yoga. 

 

Equi-Yoga Clinic

$3,000 8 days, 7 nights, 3 Equi-Yoga Sessions, 3 Days Trail Riding

It is during this week that we can  delve further into the benefits of learning and implementing Equi-Yoga techniques into your own riding lifestyle. We believe that a foundation for the practice is best built with multiple mat sessions that reinforce poses and help relax sore muscles, multi standing flows, walking sequences, and the introduction into trotting positions. All of these sessions are designed to bring awareness to any trouble spots in your riding,  as well as your own yoga practice, and giving you the tools to improve. We also apply these techniques while trail riding, such as warming up with your horse and after lunch stretches.
