Well, that was interesting…

After 18 months of very interesting, sometimes quite challenging but really oh so satisfying, we now have our certificates.

Yoga Certificate

But most importantly for me, it has led me to Somatics, Somatic Yoga. Slow, subtle exercises designed to improve brain/body connection, to relax and lengthen tight areas in the body, to align the spine, to improve posture creating a more functional, balanced body in motion.

Somatic Yoga, Wednesday mornings 10:30 at Refresh Wellness.

And “in motion” is the thing that got me. Now to add Somatics to our Core Mechanics Workshops…this is going to be grand!

Next Core Workshop weekend is July 16/17. Core Mechanic Concepts. Contact me or Lindsey for details.

Horses all turned out, off to find my yoga mat and Somatics…

Core Mechanics Concepts!!!

Core Mechanics Concepts…learning about more effective breathing patterns, neutral pelvis and spinal alignment, TAs…where are they and why are they so important and figuring out the difference between hinge and roll. And each afternoon…applying these concepts and awarenessess in the saddle.

This weekend’s Concepts Workshop action shots…

Day One

After mat work, we changed into boots and breeches and were in the arena to try out some new muscle awareness and movement concepts.

Day Two

Day two mat work is individual mat work. From our observations both on the mat and in the saddle from day one, we emphasize concepts on the mat specific to each rider.

And then once again, we take it to the saddle…

We had a super weekend! Lotsa learning, lotsa laughs, and of course happy horses.

Off to Pilates and then to the stable… 🙂 ❤
