Find Your Inner Cowgirl through Body, Mind, Equine

May 10, 2018 - May 13, 2018

Find Your Inner Cowgirl with Body, Mind, Equine™ 3-night Women’s Retreat with Cowgirl/Yogini Cathy Woods

  • DATES: May 10-13, 2018
  • RATE: $395 per person per night plus tax and service charge.

What do you get when you combine a Yogini, horses and a world class ranch? You get a renewing, fun, awareness journey through yoga and horses.

Body, Mind, Equine™ is not really about “doing yoga postures on the back of your horse,” though we do a few stretches in the saddle. The program is about how to use yoga & yogic principles to improve your horsemanship from ground to saddle. Note:Cathy Woods does not claim to be a horse trainer or riding instructor; her goal is to assist students in becoming more aware, conscious riders.

This all-inclusive fun and educational program combines “body and breathing awareness” with “energy and present moment awareness”. Much of these skills can be applied to all areas of life! In this retreat you will greet the day with a gentle morning yoga class including good stretches for riders, followed by workshops on meditation, breath-work and exploring the parallels of yoga and horsemanship. Time is spent on the mat, ground work and energy exercises in the arena with horses, saddle time and of course trail rides!

All levels of yogis and riders welcome, including beginners. Cathy works with you from where you are and you work at your own pace.

Testimonials:

Cathy Woods horse/yoga…is, rather than a riding lesson, a communications lesson of your body and mind to your horse’s body and mind.” -Cindy Hughes, Dressage rider and owner/artist of Horse Lady Gifts.

The Yoga of Horsemanship workshop was a truly enjoyable and enlightening experience. Bridging the concepts of yoga with the wisdom and spirituality of the horse enables self-discovery and awareness. You don’t have to be an expert at either discipline to be able to take away new concepts and core benefits from this program.

– Mary Connaughty-Sullivan, avid trail and Dressage rider

“Great family vacation”

We took our kids (ages 12, 10 and 9) and had a great time. Plenty to do for everybody. We rode horses, went tubing, and skiing. The staff is very friendly and ready to help with any request. The food was amazing.
