A pioneering book that introduces the practice of yoga to riders of all disciplines.

Through a practical cross-training program of postures (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama), the holistic nature of Yoga for Equestrians offers a groundbreaking approach toward building a strong foundation in horsemanship basics and the balanced seat.

It will encourage you to become a conscious rider—to realize that sensitivity and understanding of your body-mind connection are essential in riding, and to understand that using your body to communicate with the horse is the essence of riding and your most challenging task. As you gain valuable insights and techniques for effectively using your body clearly and compassionately through yoga, your horse will thank you by reflecting your positive changes and become more willing, balanced and pleasurable to rider.
