In the morning with a gentle approach to Yoga we awaken the body and mind.Yoga practice facilitates the movement of the body while respecting the natural anatomical structure. Through breathing, the vital force expands and one becomes aware of one's inner space.The practice is gradual, indicated at every level, also focused on the awareness of the coordination between movement, gaze, breathing and the relationship between the pelvis, spine and limbs.With fluid movements you will learn how to engage muscle tone while remaining in release and openness, to counteract any stiffness you may encounter during sessions on horseback.This practice is a gentle awakening for the body and prepares you for a day with the horse and in nature and as a tangible result you will gain flexibility in your body and a healthier and stronger spine.
