This is an amazing space to be in. We are guided by a softly spoken meditation, followed by submerging ourselves amongst the horses. Blending quietly into the herd. Observing their movement, their stillness, allowing ourselves to “just be”.
Yoga On The Farm
Yoga on the farm provides a place to stretch your body and relax your mind, all in the presence of God’s amazing creations. Yoga is an ABSOLUTE necessity for our Warrior program. It is during these open space sessions, you will start the mental integration process of the civilian world.
Art Assisted Healing
As soft music plays in the background, you will be guided through creative drawing using art supplies. During your time, you will be invited to immerse yourself within the herd of equine. Take the time to quietly absorb what the horses have to offer during each session.
