Conscious Riding

For everyone.

Join renowned horseman Paul Striberry and yoga teacher Sandra Burgess to learn a holistic approach to horsemanship that encourages congruence in body, mind, and spirit. This approach to Conscious Riding supports you in seeing your horse as an SUV—Spiritual Utility Vehicle—and understanding riding as a practice of meditation in motion on the path to awakening.

The core teachings of this program are grounded in yogic philosophy: feeling your natural balance and learning to watch your fears instead of getting caught in them. In this way, you learn to

  • Ride beyond your edge
  • Expand your abilities
  • Meet new challenges.

In this program, riding takes place at Undermountain Farm, three miles from Kripalu. The facilities include indoor and outdoor arenas.

Note Tuition includes riding fees. Bring gloves, boots with heels, and a helmet, if you have one.
