Breathe in. Breathe out. Neigh-maste.
We are thrilled to partner with certified yoga instructor, Summer Greenlees, in offering Yoga with Horses!
Step away from work and the virtual world to relax at the ranch. Engaging in beginner-level, hatha yoga techniques, this 75-minute class will encourage self-awareness, introspection, and a balance of life energy. Come and ground yourself in nature, awaken your body through breath work and gentle movements, and reconnect with your spirit in the powerful presence of horses.
This is a unique opportunity to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit on a 125-acre horse ranch in the Texas Hill Country.
All levels welcome. Modifications are always available. Class happens rain or shine, except in case of severe weather.
** Please note that this does not include a horseback riding opportunity.
