Yoga on Horseback

Wow, I just read an interesting article about a young lady that is practicing yoga poses on horseback.

As one who enjoys and appreciates the benefits of a yoga practice, I was fascinated to learn how Angela Nunez has taken her practice from the mat to horseback.  The gift of quieting one’s mind translates to the horse – they relax and soften instantly she says.  This seems a wonderful way to deepen the communication with your horse. Think I would start with savasana (corpse pose)

Angela is a 200 hour registered yoga teacher and lifelong equestrian.

Note: It is very important to have someone on the ground holding the horse when attempting any of the poses.
