Yoga & Horses
Yoga and horses is rising in popularity and The Stowe Mountain Ranch Yoga Retreat Center is happy to bring it to Wanderlust Stratton for the first time. The principles of Yoga and Horsemanship are synonymous. Horses live in a state of natural harmony, acceptance, a world without judgment, and they have a preference for life in a herd that includes both family and non-family members. It is said in the Yoga with Horses community that, "our saddle blankets are our mats and our studio is the great outdoors”. You will attend a three-part session including a demonstration of horse whisperer/natural horsemanship techniques, a demonstration of yoga positions, followed by the opportunity to practice with our beautiful horses. Our horses include “Black Jack”, a stunning 17 hand all black German Hanoverian gelding trained by an eight time US Olympian. Best of all, our horses will be available before and after classes for all four days of Wanderlust for you to enjoy. Stowe Mountain Ranch Yoga Retreat Center was very recently ranked in The Top 10 Yoga Retreat Centers in the World by Gayot’s for 2013 based on 25 criteria.
SCHEDULE: One to three classes daily Thursday - Sunday
