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.
