Mounted Equestrian Yoga
with Danny Chapparo
Tow things we love – Horses & Yoga!
Equestrian Yoga in the saddle combines the principles of yoga with the movement and energy of the horse.
Why Equestrian Yoga?
What we bring into the saddle – breath, flexibility, balance, awareness & presence – directly influences our riding and interaction with our horses.
This 90 minute Equestrian Yoga practice includes gentle poses off and on the horse, with lots of breathing and awareness on how to deepen your connection with your horse.
We’ll be practicing hip openers, shoulder stretches, deep twists, and lateral stretches to improve flexibility and balance when riding.
Used consistently, Equestrian Yoga complements any other riding instruction or training you receive on your journey toward a better horse-rider relationship.
It is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your connection with the horse, as well as your inner self. The time you spend in the saddle doing asanas (poses) is a great opportunity to include your equine partner in your practice.
All levels of yogis & yoginis welcome!
Suitable for equestrians of any riding discipline. Must bring your own horse.
