Watch the replay of our online event with long-time Yoga & Meditation teacher Cathy Woods to learn how the lifestyle aspects of yoga, such as mindfulness and breathwork, can help you when interacting with horses.
Long-time yoga teacher and horsewoman Cathy Woods believes the meditative, mindful breathwork and lifestyle aspects of a yoga practice, as well as the postures, can be profoundly helpful in our interactions with horses.
Cathy believes in helping riders of all disciplines achieve present moment awareness; finding body, breath, and energy awareness; breathing through challenges; listening to your inner voice; slow down; and developing balance and symmetry in the saddle. All of these are key to better communication and improved partnership with our horses.
She views the yoga mat as a place for ground work and collection for the human.
