Slow Flow Hatha Yoga
Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures). Slow Flow Hatha combines a slower-paced flow of asanas with emphasis on correct alignment. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop strength and flexibility. We also learn to balance effort and surrender in each pose.
Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment. Suitable for all levels.

Equestrian Yoga is an integral and flowing Hatha Yoga practice that addresses the specific postures and movements of the horseback rider’s body. It focuses on balance, core strength, lower back, shoulders, and hips.
This gentle practice brings the rider to a more balanced state of mind while lubricating stiff joints and stretching muscles that tighten from hours on the horse.
Learn how to use your breath as an aid to stay in synch with your horse even when fear and nerves arise during a ride.
While Equestrian Yoga is mainly geared towards the horseback rider, anyone who would like to build strength and flexibility in their core, back, shoulders, and hips will greatly benefit from this yoga practice.
Equestrian Yoga is suitable for all levels.
Equestrian Yoga (Mounted)
Equestrian Yoga in the saddle combines the principles of yoga with the moving and breathing energies of the horse. It is suitable for equestrians of any riding discipline. Used consistently, Equestrian Yoga complements any other riding instruction or training you receive on your journey toward union.
Equestrian Yoga merges the practice of yoga with riding a horse! It is a wonderful opportunity for deepening your connection with the horse, as well as your inner self. The time you spend in the saddle doing asanas (poses) is precious time to include your equine partner in your practice.
THE SAFETY OF BOTH HORSE AND RIDER IS ESSENTIAL to good horsemanship and should be observed at all times. Review guidelines for mounted practice.
