Yoga and Natural Horsemanship Retreat
May 23 @ 5:00 pm - May 28 @ 2:00 pm| €1250
5 night/6 day Yoga and Horsemanship Retreat
May 23 – 28th, 2021
On this transformative six day course, you will be invited to create deeper connections, with yourself and horses. No experience of yoga or horse riding is necessary.
Yoga is about the connection, or union, of body, mind and spirit through meditation, breathing (pranayama) and physical postures (asana). You will learn how to connect with horses and reconnect with yourself; rediscover your breath, energy and increase self-awareness and become less reactive.
Yoga classes will compliment the horsemanship with a combination of deep Yin/Restorative stretches and warming Vinyasa flows to open the body and joints in a nurturing way, as well as pranayama (breathwork) and meditation to turn inward, focusing on living in the present moment and to improve concentration.
Put what you have learned on the mat into practice in the horsemanship sessions. Similarly, we can learn a lot through our interactions with horses – how to cultivate our awareness and be present and communicate clearly. Use the breathwork and feel the connection deepen as you calm and centre yourself in the presence of the horse.
Tracie first began practicing yoga over 20 years ago on the recommendation of a friend to help combat chronic back pain. It worked and she has been practicing ever since. She decided to deepen her personal practice and undertook a yoga teacher training with an emphasis on alignment based Vinyasa Flow.
Students can expect a mindful, flowing practice with an emphasis on alignment and breath. Her aim is that students of all levels leave her class feeling challenged yet refreshed and relaxed. Tracie is also a lifelong horsewoman and loves to improve riders through yoga.
Tracie is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (200RYT)
