Yoga and the Way of the Horse is a unique, specialized training, combining personal development and leadership skills of EFL with in-depth training in the teaching and practicing Yoga.
Who is it for?
This program is for anyone drawn to it. It is for Yoga practitioners looking to deepen their practice, for people who are interested in connecting with horses through the life-changing magic of Equine Facilitated Learning. It is for Yoga professionals and other teachers looking to enhance their teaching practice by developing their unique talents, their voice, and connecting to their “why.” It is for anyone interested in healing through movement, meditation, and breath, and those seeking to improve their personal and professional relationships through better boundary setting, increased self-confidence, sense of personal path, and authentic heart-centered leadership presence.
How long is the program?
Yoga and the Way of the Horse runs from September 2017-May 2018.
How does it work?
Yoga and the Way of the Horse is offered in 3 components:
- Online, self-paced learning. Deepen your understanding of how to practice and teach asana, Yoga nidra, pranayama (and much more) with greater sensitivity for personal healing. Increase your EQ (emotional intelligence). Understand and apply information about the chakras, subtle anatomy, heart-centered leadership, authenticity and much, much more. Each section contains thought questions so that you can explore how you will use this information in your life and in your teaching. It includes unlimited email to ask any questions, explore topics, and enjoy personalized and prompt support as you find your own way through the material.
- In person intensives. Yoga and the Way of the Horse includes four 5-day intensives where we will explore Equine Facilitated Learning activities, and practice gentle movement together. Expect a deeper understanding of Yoga alignment, how to offer safe and appropriate adjustments, how to communicate non-verbally to better understand and respond to your students’ needs, how to set appropriate boundaries with clarity and without guilt or anger, how to embody heart-centered leadership in your life and work, and much more.
- Personal, professional coaching. A unique feature of this program is its recognition of your uniqueness. You are on an individual path that may involve personal healing, navigating challenging relationships (whether personal or professional), understanding your unique offering as a teacher, running a Yoga business, improving your money mindset, or building a team, just to name a few. As we work together with the horses, and through the healing practice of Yoga, you will receive two private, personal coaching calls each month for the full nine months (September-May) to assist you in achieving your personal goals, truly living your yoga, and navigating any challenges you may face through the application of Yoga values, Emotional intelligence, body awareness, mindset work, strategies and time-management tools – whatever you need to lean into your calling and live your path 100%. See the Wayfinding page for more details. ($2000 value)
