Synopsis: This programme of yoga for equestrians should help build a stronger mind-body connection for improved performance. All the exercises are demonstrated with detailed photographs. The easy-to-follow instructions and photographs guide you through asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), plus a variety of unmounted and mounted awareness exercises, visualizations, and meditations aim to enhance your riding skills. Versatile yoga routines, that can be performed by riders at the stable, at home, or at a show, are designed for warming up and cooling down and the book offers biomechanical descriptions and detailed illustrations that describe the three areas of a rider's body - centre, upper body and lower body - which are followed by specific postures to help prepare your body for riding and achieve a balanced seat.
From the Publisher: Whether one rides Western reining patterns, dressage, or the trails, this new program of yoga for equestrians will help every rider build a stronger mind-body connection for improved performance. Yoga integrated with horsemanship produces desirable rider qualities, such as enhanced awareness, flexibility, balance, and correct breathing in rhythm with movement. The book begins with an introduction to the practice of yoga and the roles of meditation and visualization. The authors then move on to basic yoga positions (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama), followed by exercise routines that focus on body areas that are key to improving the riderıs seat and communication with the horse. All exercises are demonstrated with detailed photos, and there are warm-up and cool-down routines that can easily be performed at home, at the barn, or at shows. The book concludes with some specially designed routines for mounted yoga. Linda Benedik is the director of Harmony with Horses Balanced Riding Program and a long-time yoga student. Veronica Wirth is founder of Integrated Yoga* and rides for pleasure. Both authors live and teach in Southern California.
