Ashva , is the Sanskrit word for horse, and at Ashva Yoga we specialize in Equestrian Yoga and alignment-based Hatha Yoga. Regular yoga mat classes are offered in our studio. Equestrian yoga classes are practiced with the horse, on and off the horse.
What is Equestrian Yoga?
Equestrian Yoga is an integral and ﬂowing Hatha Yoga practice that addresses the speciﬁc postures and movements of the horseback rider’s body. It focuses on balance, flexibility, core strength, lower back, shoulders, and hips.
Horses pick up on the emotional environment, including our own energy and are a true mirror of our emotional state. When our energy centers are balanced in harmony, horses and humans lead a healthier life!
Learn how to use your breath as an aid to stay in synch with your horse even when fear and nerves arise during a ride.
While Equestrian Yoga is mainly geared towards the horseback rider, anyone who would like to build strength and flexibility in their core, back, shoulders, and hips will greatly benefit from this yoga practice.
