Angela Nuñez zeigt uns, wie Yoga auf dem Pferderücken geht

Yoga ist ja bekanntlich gerade für uns Computerfreaks die beste Aktivität, um Rückenproblemen vorzubeugen und körperlich fit zu bleiben. Deshalb finden sich einige von euch sicherlich auch regelmäßig zu ihren Kursen ein – drinnen, mit der Matte auf dem Boden. Den erhöhten Schwierigkeitsgrad, also quasi Yoga für Fortgeschrittene, absolviert man anscheinend aber auf dem Pferd.

So wie Angela Nuñez, die besser bekannt ist als Horse Yoga Girl. Für ihre Übungen klettert sie nämlich öfter mal auf dem Rücken von Snowy. Denn wie sagt schon ein altes Sprichwort: „Die beste Yoga-Matte dieser Erde liegt auf dem Rücken der Pferde“.

“Surrender is the ultimate freedom.” @theyogacouple | I’ve been listening to a bunch of Mat & Ash’s podcasts the past few days, and wow do they know how to drop some mind-blowing bombs. Before I started practicing yoga (including meditation), I tried to control pretty much everything, so when things didn’t go my way, I’d lose my inner peace, or, more bluntly, I’d lose my shit. Control is an illusion. Once you realize you can only control yourself and your response to each moment, your inner peace becomes unshakeable. That true surrender really is so liberating. Surrender doesn’t mean you become apathetic or stop fighting the good fight – it means that you’re simply not attached to the outcome. We are all temporary passengers on this planet. Focus on your inner work, as Mat and Ash have coined it, and work towards mastering yourself. That’s how you’ll find true freedom and actually create ripples in the universe that will change the world. • • • #horseyogagirl #SillySnowy #yoga #meditation #horseyoga #partneryoga #fallenangel #surrender #selfinquiry #selfmastery #innerwork

I had a conversation with someone recently about meditation. He said he can’t meditate because his thoughts never stop, so I explained to him that meditating isn’t thinking nothing – it’s noticing your thoughts, becoming aware of them. Maybe with enough practice, you can achieve a few moments of complete stillness in your mind, but if you don’t, that’s okay. Just be aware of your thoughts. Notice them. Some intense, difficult emotions have arisen within me the last few days, and I’ve questioned if I’ve made any progress at all in my growth, in achieving equanimity no matter what’s going on. Then I realized that various emotions will always cycle through, it’s the ability to feel them without getting swept away and completely identifying with them that is the important part. This subtle detachment from emotions is what I believe eventually leads to samadhi, to being able to be blissful no matter what’s happening. • • • #horseyogagirl #wheelpose #urdhvadhanurasana #SillySnowy #yogahorse #horsebackyoga #equineyoga #equestrianyoga #yogathoughts #samadhi #meditation #appaloosa #partneryoga #horseyoga

I dropped a quick malasana with Snowy as my base for Day 2 of #25daysofbuti – I rode with the Middleburg Hunt today for Christmas in Middleburg, then had an exciting hunt with them through the beautiful countryside. It’s the first parade Snowy has ever been in and he was such a good boy. Malasana, or yogi squat, works on the root chakra, which is in contact with the Horse when you ride, so if you have any issues with this chakra, your horse will know. It’s worth working out any issues you have with home/feeling secure, safe, and loved.

You know what's super cool? Having core strength! Core strength helps your riding and overall balance and athleticism. I put up a new video with some core strength-focused horse yoga. You can view the full video here: http://bit.ly/2vxw8Te (link is also in my profile). Snowy was distracted the day I filmed this, so please bear with me, as I had to reset a few times. I didn't want to edit it out, because it's real and I want everyone to see that Snowy does sometimes move. I certainly don't force him to stand there. He chooses to (most of the time). Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions or requests for other instructional videos you'd like me to make. Shoutout to my sponsor @horsetackco for the super helpful @thinlinellc bareback pad! Happy Friday! • • • #horseyogagirl #horseyoga #neighmaste #equestrianyoga #yogahorse #horsesofinstagram #appaloosa #SillySnowy #yoga #yogagirl #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #equestrian #equestrianlife #yogainspiration #igyogafamily #yogisofinstagram #acroyoga #naturalhorsemanship #partneryoga #pferd #caballo #instayoga #cheval #yogavideo #corestrength #horsevideo #parelli #parellihorse #parellinaturalhorsemanship

  1. Großen Respekt dafür – Yoga auf der Yogamatte machen kann fast jeder, aber auf dem Rücken eines Pferdes befinden wir uns bereits in einer vollkommen anderen Welt.

    Sehr starke Sache!
