Yoga with horses
DOVER PLAINS — With help from their equine friends, some area residents learned new techniques for connecting with their hearts, bodies and minds during the Yoga with the Horses program held at Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue on Sunday, Sept. 6.
Located at 2699 Route 22 in Dover Plains, Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue invited participants of all levels to bring their yoga mats for some stretching under the sun with the sanctuary’s resident horses. Led by local Hatha yoga teacher Rebecca Doring, participants were taught a new breathing technique geared toward building heat, grounding and movement to help their energy flow through the autumn transitional period.
With a fee of $40 charged per person, a portion of the funds went directly to the sanctuary’s horses and other equines.
