Feel the flow...
Join us for our unique and carefully designed retreat to connect with horses, nature and your inner strength. This retreat combines the daily practice of yoga, guided meditation and the study of Natural Horsemanship in order to improve your body language, focus and leadership. Be present and in the now. Breath in the fresh air and peace of our cosy mountain farm. Practice mindfulness and go in contact with yourself through your equine partner and while meditating. Feel yourself and your horse moving together in harmony and during your yoga class. Soak in the life and peace of our jungle surroundings.
Start your day with a yoga class held by a professional and strong yogi who will guide you through your class in flow and with ease. Yoga helps you to improve your strength and balance, mental as well as physical. After a hearty breakfast including fresh and local ingredients you will be with your horse in a natural horsemanship groundwork or riding class. The study of Natural Horsemanship will not only bring you closer to the majestic and high spiritual being of the horse but also improve your self confidence, awareness, consciousness and focus. Becoming the leader of your equine partner can teach you to also become your own leader and not have others influence your decisions and ideas without your consent. After your horse class you can stay with the herd on our stunning mountain pasture, take time to just be and breath. The afternoons include a mix of activities making every day special and different. After a healthy and delicious dinner we will be falling asleep to the sound of the jungle.
Immerse into the learning of the horses language.
Give yourself the time you like to fully immerse into the horse world together with our passionate horsewoman isa and her precious herd at Finca Soley. Learn how to communicate with horses using your energy, intentions and body language. After being partnered up with your equine partner you can learn with him together what it means to become a friend with a horse. Improve your timing, mental strength and leadership while having the best teacher in the world: a horse. Become one with your horse riding with only one or even without a rein and on only a bareback pad. Test your creativity and precision while playing with your horse in liberty. Once you make friends with a horse there are no more limits.
This course is for people who want to learn what really counts for horses. No matter if you finally follow your dream and start getting in contact with horses or if you even own your own horses back home and want to bring new inspirations with you, we will pick you up where you are and make sure you will get the best out of this course.
Besides the horses you can enjoy Finca Soley surroundings on the included nature and culture tours within this program. Visit hot springs to relax, hike and jump into the wild waterfalls in our area.
