Come experience the healing powers of the horse thru our horseback riding & yoga retreat. Horses mirror our feelings and help us look deep within ourselves. Couple that with the benefits of yoga and meditation and our retreat will be the mind-body-spirit connection you have been searching for. There is a strong link between yoga and riding.
With the specialized skills and knowledge of trainer Annelie Anderson-Beck (Certified Centered Riding Instructor, Level II) and Parvati Victoria Goodwin (Owner of Blissful Yoga in Mullica Hill & Sacred Empowerment Mentor) we will learn how yoga and Centered Riding go hand-in-hand. Through yoga poses and breathing techniques we learn how to improve our balance, grounding, core strength and body alignment. All of which are very important in riding.
Centered Riding is based on a knowledge of human and horse anatomy, balance, movement and an understanding of how the mind affects the body and how both affect the horse. Centered Riding techniques help promote suppleness & stability, making riding more comfortable for both horse and rider .
Our retreat is set on a 70 acre horse farm in historic, Mullica Hill, NJ. The day will begin with yoga and meditation then we will move out to the horse barn where we will groom, tack up and get to know the horses. In the arena we will learn how to transfer what we did on the mat, into the saddle. Followed by the Centered Riding lesson.
We will then take all of the knowledge and confidence that we have gained and head out for a trail ride ending with lunch and a bonfire at the 300 year old farmhouse where you can stroll the grounds and get to meet all the rescued animals that call Safe Haven Farm home. Groups will remain small so we can ensure you get the most you can out of this experience.
If you do not have a horse we will provide one for you. Call Gina at 856-261-7339 to book your spot. The cost of the retreat is $249.00. All levels of experience are welcome. Riding experience is not necessary.
