Jodi combines her passion for riding and yoga by offering a Equestrian Yoga practice; a Hatha inspired Yoga practice with an emphasis on the breath, prana, mindfulness and meditation. It also addresses the specific postures and movements of the horseback rider’s body and focuses on balance, flexibility, core strength, lower back, shoulders, hips and addresses mental and emotional blockage in the body.
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 lives.
Join Jodi and learn how you can use your breath as an aid to stay in sync with your horse even when fear and nerves arise during a ride, or during your busy life.
Benefits of Equestrian Yoga

-Develop a deeper seat and lower your center of gravity by opening up your hips and building a stronger core

-Use your body, mind, and breath, to build that deep connection and relationship with your equine partner
