Drumming, Rhythm, Movement and Horse beat!  Open to anyone 8 to 108 including siblings, parents and friends! 

Sunday, August 15 – 9:30 am to noon 

Discover a resounding you with stillness, sound and movement. Horses are masters at intuitive knowing and being. Let them guide you to that same place within yourself. Then let the sound of the drums vibrate an opening for new movements in your day. 

Drumming helps to bring us into balance. In general, it helps open our hearts and live from our heart center. Group drumming and music-making are universal to all cultures. It is aerobic, fun, easy and anyone can do it. We all have rhythm. 

Drums and rhythm instruments give a voice to those who struggle with self-expression and oral communication. They open up a rich world of non-verbal communication and creative expression in a safe and supportive environment. They allow us to connect, to share, to belong, to release, to be heard, to be creative, and to heal. 

The session includes drums and instruments provided; you are welcome to bring your own hand percussion instruments.

Restorative Yoga with the Horses. 

Tuesday, August 17 – 7 pm to 8:30 pm

Join the herd of horses as we connect with them from a heart space. They are in a place of mindful meditation with every step they take, we too, ground and relax when we unite with these beautiful beings.

Horses have a heart that is 5 times larger and beats at a much slower rate than that of the human heart. Just by being in proximity with our horses, you will find that your heart rate will slow and you will naturally start to become more grounded. We take this gift from the horses into our restorative yoga practice. Tapping into breath and body, releasing muscles and mind. Remember to bring your yoga mat (or a towel)!

Full Moon Meditation with the Herd 

Monday, September 20 – 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm 

Tuesday, October 19 – 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm 

Thursday, November 18 – 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm 

The full moon represents the Heart Chakra.  The stronger your connection to the full moon, the more your heart chakra is aligned. Your heart chakra is home to kindness and forgiveness. When you meditate during the full moon, you are channelizing the energy to fill your heart with positivity.

This means that meditating in full moon energy is actually the perfect time to let go of negativity.

What could be more wonderful than having horses supporting and encouraging the use of heart energy through their beautiful large hearts and angelic souls? Horses have hearts that are 5 times larger than the heart of a human and the horse’s heart beats 50-70%  slower than a human heart. Meditating while in the company of horses bring the experience to a deeper level. 

Connect your heart to the energy of the horse’s hearts and the full moon during this mediation.  

Investment: $35 per person per session
