Yoga for riders

There are many benefits of yoga and several of them can also make you a better rider! We offer our guests rider specific yoga sessions where function is prioritized over form. You don’t have to be an experienced yoga practitioner to join, we build from where we are!

Balance

Balance/proprioception: Proprioception is the perception of where our body is in space. Many times, we need to reprogram ourselves to create new movement patterns (on/off the horse) as the old ones might not serve us. By finding the right balance by using your body in an efficient way you will find that the riding requires less effort but that the harmony with the horse comes easier. 

Mobility

Many of us need to work on create the right musculature to combine the stability of the core with mobility in other part of your bodies while riding. Our everyday patterns might not help and areas that might need attention are for example hip flexors, calves/ankles and shoulders.
 

Stability

In order to be an efficient rider you need to find stability in your seat and that is mainly done by activating the core. Yoga is a great way to build the strength required to absorb and match the force the horse generates as it moves.  
 

Mind

Your thoughts affect your riding and what you think also directly affect your horse. Through yoga you become aware of your thoughts and can learn how to control them. 

Breath

The breath is key for many things; it is the gateway to the core but it is also a tool for relaxing yourself – and the horse! The way we live we forget how to breathe and therefore lose the benefits of the breath, which you can reconnect with by practicing yoga.

Many riders suffer from back pain. One reason can be as a result of having strived to sit up tall. Learn how you can become sustainable in your riding and last longer!
