Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether one rides Western reining patterns, dressage, or the trails, this new program of yoga for equestrians will help every rider build a stronger mind-body connection for improved performance. Yoga integrated with horsemanship produces desirable rider qualities, such as enhanced awareness, flexibility, balance, and correct breathing in rhythm with movement. The book begins with an introduction to the practice of yoga and the roles of meditation and visualization. The authors then move on to basic yoga positions (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama), followed by exercise routines that focus on body areas that are key to improving the rider's seat and communication with the horse. All exercises are demonstrated with detailed photos, and there are warm-up and cool-down routines that can easily be performed at home, at the barn, or at shows. The book concludes with some specially designed routines for mounted yoga.

Synopsis:

Equestrians everywhere will benefit from these unique yoga exercises specially designed for the rider. Learn how to enhance your riding skills through awareness exercises, visualizations, and meditations and improve your strength, flexibility, and balance through mounted and unmounted yoga routines.

Synopsis:

A unique program of yoga for riders that cultivates both mental and physical flexibility and balance--vital keys to achieving harmony between horse and human. This manual is profusely illustrated with color photos and drawings.
