What a perfect evening practice in the hayloft … inspired and guided by this sweet quote by Erich Schiffman:
Every yoga posture involves a ‘push’ and a ‘yield.’ Pushing is an active force that moves the body further and deeper into the posture, gently exploring areas of tightness. Yielding is a passive force with which you wait and listen to the moment-to-moment feedback from your body; it’s a letting go of resistance that allows the active force to be successful without being aggressive. The pushing and yielding elements occur simultaneously, as in a dance. Done properly, therefore, yoga is a matter of pushing and yielding, of ‘doing’ and ‘not-doing,’ at the same time.”
How can this concept apply to your riding?
Your relationship with your horse?
With other people?
Wishing you all a blissful and happy evening!
