About This Event
EXPERIENCE LEVEL / WHO IS THIS FOR?
You don’t need experience with horses or yoga to join this retreat. All you need to do is open yourself completely to a new experience and embrace every moment.
Throughout the week you will find yourself lowering your guards and releasing all the emotions you’ve been holding on to, this alone will grant you the ability to connect with horses and improve your yoga.
As herd and prey animals horses are keenly aware of their companions and environment, and react quickly to any changes. In this way they act as a mirror to what you’re bringing with you. If you’re trying to bottle up and hide unresolved anger, the horse will feel it and react in anger himself.
YOUR PROGRESS WITH THE HORSE WILL ALSO MIRROR YOUR PROGRESS IN FACING AND LOVING YOURSELF.
Asanas, yoga poses, help you to develop physical strength and body awareness, while pranayama (breathing techniques), help you to focus, concentrate and become still in your mind, opening the space for deeper understanding and intuition.
