Physical distancing in effect.
For many, you've been practicing yoga and meditation in the company of studio communities. Covid-19 has placed us at physical distances where the solo practice of ancient times has become quite real. We're not used to being alone and deep down we might be feeling how connection is our biological imperative.
We want for all being to be safe, healthy, and free from harm. We can see the many ways to help. There are also creative ways to gather, to see and be with one another within safe covid protocols. The great outdoors really helps!
Annika and I invite you to gather together out in the landscape, with her horses, a warm fire and each other in a round of practices. It will most likely be a new experience for us! And yet, as practitioners, we can resurrect practices into every space and time. Annika Voeltz, Life-Coach and certified horse-assisted therapist, with her four, formerly wild horses invite us out to their barn for a morning of learning about mindfulness from a horse’s perspective.
Horses in their natural environment are Masters of Mindfulness. They have been uniquely created to adapt to the most challenging circumstances without losing their very own identity. They have come to the human’s aid in many ways over past centuries and we believe that they have a role to play in our time that goes beyond a beloved hobby.
Horses are known for their calming effects on people. Spending time interacting with horses can draw out some of the anxiety, stress, and mental strain we might be feeling. They sense what is going on ‘underneath the surface’ and respond accordingly. Many of Annika's clients report feeling a deep sense of appreciation for how their emotions get accepted and acknowledged by the horses. What can we learn from horses about how we want to be in this world?
Annika Voeltz explains, “Whoever you are and whatever you are experiencing – being with horses offers you a new perspective to life. Horses communicate with your very core, so everything on the outside, whether it’s stress, distractions or the layers you are putting on to protect yourself from life, simply seem to disappear and let you focus on your priorities.”
