RETREAT OVERVIEW


As herd and prey animals horses are keenly aware of their companions and environment, and react quickly to any changes. In this way they act as a mirror to what you’re bringing with you. If you’re trying to bottle up and hide unresolved anger, the horse will feel it and react in anger himself.

YOUR PROGRESS WITH THE HORSE WILL ALSO MIRROR YOUR PROGRESS IN FACING AND LOVING YOURSELF

Asanas, yoga poses, help you to develop physical strength and body awareness, while pranayama (breathing techniques), help you to focus, concentrate and become still in your mind, opening the space for deeper understanding and intuition.

Experience Level / Who is this for?

You don’t need experience with horses or yoga to join this retreat. All you need to do is open yourself completely to a new experience and embrace every moment.

Throughout the week you will find yourself lowering your guards and releasing all the emotions you’ve been holding on to, this alone will grant you the ability to connect with horses and improve your yoga.

YOUR TEACHER

Terry L. Newton

Certified by Yoga Alliance: E-200 RYT 500-RYT.

Certified Yoga Therapist by IAYT.

Certified Metaphysical Energy Healer and Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner.

Natural Horsemanship & Liberty trainer.

Barefoot Trimming and Bit-less Riding Advocate

Terry is a teacher determined to bring her students the balance they need to improve their lives. Yoga, Terry believes, is not just an exercise to be practiced in a classroom, but rather a well rounded way of living meant to affect your health in body, mind and soul

To this end, she relies on Hatha Yoga to clearly explain the what, why and how of each pose.

The word ‘Hatha’ comes from the Sanskrit terms “Ha” and “Tha” representing the ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ respectively. Hatha Yoga is the science of balancing the solar-lunar and pair of opposites that exists within each of us for a more intimate connection to the Self.

With careful attention, Terry examines each student and adapts her classes daily to meet them where they are physically and emotionally. Her classes incorporate alignment, breathing techniques, mudras and meditation, and as a passionate nature lover, also incorporates the surrounding jungle, the giant trees and powerful energy into her daily classes for all to experience, making full use of the vibrant energy Costa Rica’s Caribbean has to offer.
