Journey Inn events:
Inner Reflection with Horses & Yoga
Join Kristina Ahern, an experienced yoga teacher and long-time equestrian, and John Huffaker, psychotherapist and life coach, for this unique two-fold retreat experience. We will be exploring the symbiotic blending of the human/horse connection, as well as experiencing yoga techniques to encourage the expansion of your heart and mind.
Participants of this retreat (limited to 6) will have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with an equine partner for 30 minutes in a safe environment under the guidance of Kristina (the caretaker/friend of four horses). Over decades of horse relationships and teaching yoga, she has developed an intuitive understanding of how equine interactions and yoga practices share a common thread of facilitating increased inner awareness.
The equine experience may include being in close proximity to the horse, grooming the horse and/or haltering & leading the horse (depending upon participant and horse comfort level). Riding the horses is not included. Following the interaction with your horse partner, John will provide a 30-minute processing session to review and reflect upon your experience and the meaning you have gleaned from it.
Additionally, there will be 6 hours (four hour-and-one-half classes) of small group yoga instruction given during the weekend that will encourage opening the heart and creating stillness for inner reflection through gentle movement, breath work, visualization and guided meditation. Individual yoga sessions may also be offered depending upon time availability.
The cost for this retreat:
$540 plus tax for a private room, $385 plus tax for a shared room. All experiences/classes, lodging, two brunches, and a check-in snack are included, with an optional (additional charge) dinner provided on site. Extras, such as: Massage ($85-$125 per session) and energy therapy ($95-$140) are also available also. Individual, personalized yoga sessions where you will develop a personalized yoga routine to take home are $140 for 1.5 hours.
