What is it?

Horseback Yoga combines meditation, relaxation, reiki energy, breathing exercises, deep stretches and movement with the movement and energy of the horse. It is a powerful mode of healing and it’s fun for everyone.

We start with matwork, meditation and body opening to connect with the horse before moving onto their back.

Who is it for?

Horseback yoga is for everyone whether you have never ridden or practised yoga before, however we feel that the following groups would gain greater immediate benefit from taking part.

Yoga Practitioners

You’ll get to put your yoga skills into practice in a real life situation – moving with and around the sometimes imposing stature of a horse.

Horse Riders

Horses communicate non-verbally. With horseback yoga, you’ll learn to communicate more effectively with your horse, strengthening your bond through ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’. Learn to hear the messages your body is giving you and respond to them appropriately. You’ll come to understand what your horse and your body are trying to tell you.

Disabled People

I’ve seen horseback yoga enable disabled children to do things they’ve never been able to do before. The benefits on disabilities and health issues are especially profound. Anyone can do it. You are welcome to either join in one of my existing group sessions (coming soon) or for more personalised support, organise a private or semi-private lesson.

Testimonials

Nicola, you have been amazing at helping and she has grown in confidence and managed leg positions we thought were not possible whilst horse riding! The relaxation you offer beforehand has meant Ella has coped so much more with the yoga exercises you do with her on horse.
